Learn to create truly persuasive marketing content that will leave your customers wanting more

In the digital age, customers don't care what you're selling – they're more interested in what you're giving way. Providing your target audience with relevant, high quality online content is a proven means to increase their trust in your brand, and convert goodwill into increased sales. And if your content is good enough to share, your customers will spread the word.

But for small business owners without media or marketing experience, creating and writing a newsletter or email campaign can be a daunting – and time-consuming – challenge. This accessible evening course will help you find your voice and your strongest possible position within the market. Led by content marketing specialist John W. Hayes, author of Becoming The Expert, this event explains, in plain English, how to create, produce and share effective marketing content. No matter what business you're in, you'll learn simple and productive methods to communicate directly with your customers in order to build your reputation, generate new leads and, ultimately, increase your profits.

This course is for you if…
  • You run a small- to medium-sized business and are looking for cost-effective marketing techniques
  • You want to improve the digital profile and reputation of your business without paying for external consultants
  • You want to better understand the content and digital marketing landscapes
