This three-part interactive webinar series will guide you through the marketing planning process, giving you all the necessary tools to create your own effective marketing plan for your business.
As we recover from the effects of the pandemic, it’s likely that the way you do business and engage with your customers has changed, with much more of our work moving into the digital realm. For a lot of businesses, this means rethinking your marketing strategy, tailoring it to our ‘new normal’ and reaching audiences whose behaviours have changed – a process that can be difficult to even begin.
Brought to you in partnership with Intandem Communications, a Yorkshire-based PR and marketing agency, this series of three free online masterclasses will guide you through the marketing planning process, breaking it down into simple steps to help you feel confident in creating your own effective marketing plan. Throughout the series, you will be invited to contribute, work on your own business’ marketing plan, and receive feedback on your ideas. At the end of the series, you will have the tools necessary to create your own joined-up marketing plan and content which delivers results.
