12 noon – ‘Making sure your business is found online’ – Ruth Allen, RA Digital
Everyone needs to be online. We all know it. But in a world full of acronyms like SEO, UX, PPC, who knows where to start in online marketing? This talk will cover the basics of getting your organisation seen online. It will cover getting started in SEO and User Experience (UX), as well as explaining some free tools that can really help you manage (and measure) your online presence.


12.45pm - Lunch (sandwich buffet)

1.30pm - '10 ways to use LinkedIn – that have nothing to do with recruitment but everything to do with sales’ – James Potter, The Linkedin Man
If I was to ask the average person what LinkedIn is I suspect they would say it’s a job site. Yet recruitment is only number 25 on the top industry categories on LinkedIn in the UK and is not a top 3 in any city in the UK! LinkedIn’s research is that 80% of people are on LinkedIn for professional use, but what sort of use? Well there’s the obvious ones like networking, sales and word of mouth, but then there is the more creative ones used by procurement, researchers, analysts and even spies (yes we’ve trained spies on LinkedIn!). Come along to this talk to learn about all the things you can do with LinkedIn, have your perception reset of how to think about it, and the value you can get from it easily and most often without even paying.

2.15pm - ‘Reaching out to your customers using Facebook’ – Victoria Barrett, Wedding Business Circle

3pm close
