Event description



Chimps that mail; engines that search; being tagged, poked and then given cookies… what’s this digital marketing all about?

Do you have a website, and maybe a bunch of social channels, but are struggling to get hits? Or, more importantly, struggling to convert hits into leads and sales? The manufacturing industry is often a few steps behind when it comes to online innovation, so this workshop will help you to overtake your competitors by teaching you how to:

  • Segment your customers, clients, stockists or distributors

  • Plan your digital journey, campaigns and content

  • Understand which tools and platforms to choose from

  • Increase traffic to your site

  • Convert visitors into leads

  • Create an active sales database

Digital marketing is a cost effective, impressionable medium with a fast, unique ability to sell to a global audience. It’s not, however, a one-size-fits-all approach: our sector-specific course ensures the information is relevant to your business within the manufacturing industry. Our strategic and hands-on workshop will strike into the heart of the process.
