IB THRIVE: Demystifying Digital Marketing
Jun 23rd | 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm BSTFree
The world of digital marketing is overwhelming, confusing and bewildering. Unfortunately, its complexity causes many to simply switch off and ignore digital marketing. Honestly, it’s an understandable reaction!
Doing so, however, cuts your business off from some of the most cost-effective routes to growing your business.
If instead we learn to use a handful of digital tools, we can take our businesses to another level by accessing bigger customer markets at a fraction of the cost of traditional marketing techniques.
The key is to know what exact tools we need.
Most businesses think they need it all: a website, e-commerce, Google ads, Facebook, Instagram, Tiktok etc. And most digital agencies are only too happy to provide all these services. Of course they are! That’s where they make their fees!
The truth is that most digital marketing will be irrelevant for your particular needs. The difficulty is working out what is relevant and shedding the rest.
This masterclass lets you identify one or two tools that make sense for YOUR business and ignore the rest. We’ll use the 80/20 rule to find the high impact digital marketing tools that make sense for your business. And we’ll ignore the rest.
In this session we’ll do a survey of what’s available and talk about what makes sense for different business needs. We start with business then work out the marketing needs.
Then, depending on your business needs, provide a plan for using the basics of digital marketing to immediately see benefits!
