This free workshop, which is part of a series of training workshops within the Donegal Digital project, will introduce SMEs to digital marketing and provide useful tools to analyse their current business situation, customer and market. It will also help SMEs to develop a marketing plan that fits their needs.
SMEs will be familiarised with an extremely relevant tool to develop their online business, Web Analytics, to learn how to help boost and streamline online activities: acquisition, conversion rate optimisation and building retention.
“Where does social media fit into the overall marketing / sales objectives?”, asks digital marketing expert and workshop trainer, Mr. Conor Boyce. He recommends identifying 5 or 6 ways of acquisition. According to Boyce, the best way to develop a digital strategy is to “keep it simple, don't over-complicate things. Know your metrics”. Definitively, what you will learn by attending this workshop.
