New Forest Business Support Hour – Wednesday 23 September
23 September, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
Connecting through your Marketing
Do you need a website? Should you be on FaceBook, Instagram, Pinterest, LinkedIn (insert the social media platform of the day)? That all depends on what you are trying to achieve. The answer to these questions and your entire Digital and Social Media plan come from taking a holistic view of marketing for your business. It’s easy to jump straight in to social media because it’s at our fingertips all the time. It can also be extremely cost-effective and even free. That makes it very tempting! But have you really looked at whether it’s right for your organisation? And which of the many social media options make most sense for you?
Frances Fawcett is founder of Crystal Planning and works directly, and through third parties, with businesses in the UK and internationally. She helps them put strong business plans in place, consider the right marketing approach and ensure robust and compliant export and import processes. She frequently meets businesses with lots of social media activity, but not quite enough marketing strategy to ensure it’s the right activity. Taking time to plan saves time and money in the long run – many social media platforms are free, but the time you spend maintaining them has a cost. Frances can be reached on 07740 189717 at firstname.lastname@example.org and via www.crystalplanning.com.
During the Hour, there will be 20 minutes for businesses to share ideas, opportunities or concerns with each other and the rest of the time for the input from our local business experts. There will also be the opportunity to follow up afterwards with NFBP and with the experts.
Please note that this is a virtual Zoom meeting and is free of charge. You do need to book by 1400 on Wednesday. You will then receive an email just after 1400 with the Zoom meeting ID and password to enable you to join the meeting online.
