‘Two low cost ways to boost your business profile’.
MARKETING and PR are core skills for small businesses who need to be able to amplify their message and connect with potential customers. Yet hiring professional help can be beyond the reach of many.
As part of its commitment to member development the FSB has teamed up with Wakefield PR agency, Carmel Harrison PR to deliver a lunch and learn; ‘Two low cost ways to boost your business profile’.
Carmel will present a seminar on how you write a press release to help get you and your business noticed and how to set up a business Facebook page to give you a low cost social media presence. (Bring your lap top – you might even be able to make a start on your business Facebook presence)
An accredited Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) skills service provider Carmel will show you what to include in a press release, how to structure it who to send it to and how to follow up. You will leave with a series of tips to implement in your everyday marketing strategy.
She will also give you an insight into the workings of a busy news room so you understand what the media is looking for and how you can provide it. Carmel will also demystify social media and give you some simple guidelines to establish then boost your online presence effectively.
This event is also open to non-members so if you have a colleague you wish to bring along please feel free to bring them as your guest.
