SUNSHINE COAST - Digital Marketing Essentials * Prepare for 2020! | The Creative Collective | Thursday, 05. December 2019

SUNSHINE COAST - Digital Marketing EssentialsARE YOU READY FOR 2020?
Every business needs a digital marketing strategy of some kind in the digital world we are now operating in; be it through social media, search engines, web development, or email communication or other methods. What’s common is for businesses to be doing ‘bits and pieces’ in terms of digital marketing, but nothing particularly thought out nor cohesive. It’s no good doing digital marketing in parts. You won’t get the results you crave and it will take you a lot of time and effort.
So what are all the elements that go into a digital strategy and how do you bring them together in a meaningful way for you? How would you even like to be guided how to put together a digital marketing campaign for yourself or a client with a digital marketing specialist? 
Come along to this full day digital marketing strategy masterclass and gain knowledge of each of the digital marketing options available to you and learn how to start to build your own digital strategy and/or digital marketing campaign.
Be introduced to websites, keyword research, blogging, Google adwords, SEO, email marketing, social media and more so you can achieve a multitude of marketing objectives.

• Defining Your Objectives: the importance of being super clear on your objectives and how these may vary from your digital marketing strategy to your digital marketing campaign• Defining Your target market: the importance of being super clear on who you are targeting before you start your digital marketing including how to check who is already interacting with your Facebook page and your website which may reveal clues on who is already interested and how these may vary from your digital marketing strategy to your digital marketing campaign.• Defining your brand voice and messaging for your digital strategy and digital marketing campaign: the way you ’speak’ online may vary from the way you speak in other marketing channels. Typically the way you speak on social media for instance is much more colloquial than long form marketing. It is important to define how your company want to ‘speak’ through various digital channels (short form and long form), what topics you will speak on and who you will partner with to share similar/complimentary messages.
• Preparing your digital assets:
- Have you got a website or landing page you will send people to as part of the campaign?
- Have you got social media channels you will send people to as part of the campaign?
- Will you sign people up to a database as part of the campaign?
- Have you got your tracking set up? Google Analytics, Google Webmaster Tools, Facebook pixels, Google Tag Manager?
- Have you got prizes, terms & conditions or anything else you may need for your digital marketing campaign?
• The importance of data capture - identifying what database system you will use as part of your digital marketing, how you will capture data, how you will use this data (segmenting lists and more)
• The Power of Email Databases: Email marketing / sub lists / follow up• Search Engine Marketing: Organic Search vs. Pay Per Click• Social Media: which social networks do you use? which should you use? For your digital strategy in general or your digital marketing campaign.• Youtube: The power of videos for your digital strategy in general or your digital marketing campaign.• Content Marketing - the importance of regularly creating fresh content and creative ways to produce it• Imagery - the importance of creating professional graphics in line with your objectives and target market for your digital strategy in general or your digital marketing campaign including where to source royalty free, copyright free images, how to create correctly sized and professional looking digital images every time (you will leave having created a suite of digital graphics to use if you choose!)• Distribution, timing & budget - A look at your options for channels to distribute your messages digitally and how to select them for any set campaign, the importance of timing, frequency & budget - how much to spend (and where)• Analytics: Online + Offline + Tracking. The numbers tell the whole story.This workshop will be a full day event.
