The fully-funded will showcase the very latest developments in the world of digital marketing – helping SMEs to stay at the cutting edge of new technology, tools and techniques.
The full-day conference will build on the success of the programme’s conferences earlier this year, which saw 98 per cent of the 300 delegates saying they would like the opportunity to attend another.
Booking is now open and businesses are urged to secure their place
Diane Beresford, Deputy Chief Executive of the Chamber, said: “The conferences were a resounding success and there’s been a lot of demand for us to stage more in 2019.
“The quality and depth of knowledge and expertise on the project is brilliant and this is never clearer than when we bring all of this together for these full-day events, so we’re really excited that planning is underway and the bookings are already coming in.”
The days will feature some of the programme’s most popular topics – including a look at the latest developments in social media (including the use of Facebook groups as a way of engaging with customers), what’s new in online search, and how SMEs can make their budgets go further by using paid-for social advertising.
Meanwhile, the project’s packed programme of workshops and seminars continue to be a big hit with businesses across the region.
Diane said: “We’re working with hundreds of companies across Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire, and I’m pleased to say that we have a lot of very satisfied businesses.
“It’s really rewarding to see the positive impact that we’re having on the region’s SMEs, and how this ultimately translates into a boost for the local economy.”
But many more could benefit from what the project has to offer, added Diane: “We’d love to see as many companies as possible get the most out of the Digital Growth Programme. Overall, the programme is simply an opportunity not to be missed and, if people aren’t signed up, we would urge them to find out more about the benefits to their business.”
