BENEFITS OF THE WORKSHOP

There is no doubt that the world is becoming an increasingly competitive place. Every organization is trying to establish an edge for themselves and every organization is finding this more difficult and much more expensive to do so. In fact, the real edge will only come from being able to develop and communicate the essence of your brand better than your competitors. But who was it that said "I know I am wasting half my money on advertising but I am just not sure which half that is"?

So how do we make sure that our dollars go further and we don’t waste any? We make them accountable, that’s how.

In utilizing direct marketing for your business you will be able to not only add value to your brand but also extend your customer base and be able to measure every dollar you spend and then judge the effectiveness of that spend.

The targeted nature of direct marketing is ideal for managing an ever-shrinking marketing budget as well as allowing you to better reach those customers that count – and spend nothing on those that don’t.

BENEFITS OF THE WORKSHOP

Advertising on the internet can be an effective but sometimes expensive solution for your business. But what if there was an even easier way to reach clients but at only a fraction of the cost of online advertising? Would you be interested? Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) sounds like a mouth full but it is one of the easiest and cheapest ways to get to your customers that the internet has to offer. Taking your website to the top of a search-engine search may be just the key you are looking for to unlock access to those prospects/customers you seek.

Search engines are fast becoming the principle way that people make purchase decisions. Using only two simple techniques, you can learn how to get to the top of a search performed by your customer at either Google, Baidu, MSN or Yahoo. Collectively, these four search engines account for over 75% of searches conducted on the internet. Imagine understanding the mystery behind these engines and the potential this might have for your business. You can appreciate the potential benefit to your business when your customer performs a search on Google or one other of these search engines and your company’s name comes up on the front page! Would it be even sweeter if this marketing success story cost you nothing more than a little time on your part?

Getting to the front page of a Google or Yahoo search is much easier than you think and a lot cheaper and simpler than the consultants would have you believe. A one-day seminar is all you need to learn a few simple ways to get to the top of the search engine pile.
