Why you can’t ignore old school marketing for your business

February 16 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

As new platforms emerge & social media dominates we look at the ‘old school’ tools that still play a huge role in raising business awareness

In a world where social media seems to dominate and new platforms are emerging all the time, it can feel overwhelming when you have your own business.

We often focus on the things that are changing when so often it is those things that HAVEN’T changed that can be so important in marketing

  • Do leaflets and posters still have a place in modern day marketing?
  • Is networking important in spreading my message?
  • Is texting still a thing?
  • Do people still look at websites?

The answer is yes! Depending on your business and your audience, the ‘old school’ tools can still play a huge part in raising awareness of your business

In this workshop, we’ll look at all the marketing methods that get overlooked in today’s world of social media and AI as well as dealing with the overwhelm that can face so many business owners when looking at their marketing

They’ll also be on hand to answer any specific marketing questions about your business.
