Marketing Made Easy

When you have completed the programme, you will have a sound knowledge of what channels and tactics are suitable for your business and be able to answer questions including:

  • Should we be using Social Media and if so, why?
  • Is email, or even direct mail, out of date? 
  • Will a price promotion work for us? etc.

You will learn how to create your own bespoke marketing plan that will deliver some 'quick wins' and a medium/long term plan for sustainable and manageable growth.

This half day programme is delivered to a maximum of six organisations at a time.  The content is a mixture of formal teaching mixed with lots of small practical exercises.  You will need to do about an hour's prep work before the day.

The pogramme is followed up with an hour of 1-to-1 exclusive support with Guy Bucknall.  During this session, we will fill in the details of the plan you have developed and cover off any questions or problems that are specific to your business or have arisen since the training day.

If you run your own business or manage the marketing function for a business or department then this is the course for you.
