MarketMe will help Wakefield-based start-ups and scale-ups trading B2B to take their products and services to market more effectively.

About this Event

Strategic Marketing Series for New Business

Delivered by BrownDog Agency for AD:VENTURE, MarketMe will help Wakefield-based start-ups and scale-ups who are trading B2B to take their products and services to market more effectively.

Combining interactive and thought-stimulating exercises with real world experience of the marketing mix, the series will take you from a start point of explaining your challenges, to matching your business to changing national and global circumstances, carving out a point of difference for you to take to market, and equipping you with the most effective tactical skills and content with which to acquire new business.

Market Me – Session 5

Content Marketing – The Mainstay of the Thought Leader

Content Marketing – where to start?

This final session will help you answer the questions people have about your services and build your opening content into bitesize chunks – not chapter and verse…

Working in groups, you’ll match your Tactical Priorities to your content calendar, and from this create an effective plan of quality, relevant content, presented in the most appropriate format for the specific tactic.

Knowing which social media platform is suitable for your business is key to high engagement and generating conversions, so we will also:

• Pick the platforms that perform best in your industry e.g. Pinterest would be great for promoting home interiors but not for an accountancy firm

• Create a schedule that allows for posting content at least 3 times a week

• If you want to run ads, this will help you think about your daily budget and how many people that will reach

• Analyse – show you how to track your progress on the social platforms’ tools and on Google Analytics

Market Me – Session 4

Marketing Planning – Anticipating and Delivering Customer Wants, Profitably

Why Plan? What should a plan look like? How often should I update it?

How relevant is a 5 or even 3 year plan in today’s fast moving world?

There’s a lot to be said for a short, effective plan that can actually be used on a daily basis, and which can also be adapted when the inevitable changes in circumstances happen.

In this penultimate session, after working through an example together, you will create your own 1 Page Marketing Plan that contains just enough detail to be useful, without wasting time on planning that will never be used and will be out of date the minute it is finished.

CO-STAR – Turning ideas into reality

The third session will explore CO-STAR, a practical and engaging workshop-based tool for creating and embedding value into an organisation, in this case taking a small professional business, and creating a compelling proposition for customers that helps it stand out from the competition.

Working in teams and putting sample businesses from the group at the heart of the exercise, we will work on a proposition that covers off all of the key challenges a new product, service or business faces, and look to develop a solution that returns maximum results for both your customers and your organisation or business.

This innovation-based exercise gives you the opportunity to ‘pitch’ your product or service to your contemporaries, receive vital feedback, and refine your offer until it delivers maximum impact.

Environment Mapping – Understanding our world

This is the ideal start point for any business looking to develop a new strategy, and starts with a helicopter view of the environment facing all of our businesses.

It is also a great way for you to introduce you and your business to the group, and talk a little bit about your top-level challenges.

The outcome of the session is that you will better understand the environment in which you are operating, and will be able to devise a plan to either mitigate the risks or capitalise on the opportunities each element provides.

In addition you will have a series of strategies, positioning statements and messages that can be incorporated within your marketing activities.

Personal Brand & Professional Impact

Your Personal Brand & Professional Impact

Every day people assess or make judgements on you, both personally and professionally. From how (and where) you present yourself to how you conduct business, from how you communicate to your content on social media, and indeed much more….. You cannot remove your personal “brand” from your professional world, which is especially true in a new, and/or small business like those on the Ad-venture Programme.

So how do you maximise the impact of your personal brand for the advantage of your business brand? This interactive, impactful session will look at how.

Covering;

-What is your personal “brand”
-How is it built?
-How and where is it presented?
-Influencing your personal “brand” content
-Taking your “brand” into the professional world
-Creating inspiring brand “content”
-Standing out in a competitive world
-Creating a Professional impact

If, as they say, “you are what you eat”, the same can be said for a small business owner when it comes to “you ARE your business”. Can you afford not to understand how to maximise both?

This workshop is being delivered by Nick Bramley from Impactus Group.

Mapping & Maximising Your Customer Journey

Mapping & Maximising Your Customer Journey

Today’s customers are faced with an ever-increasing number of choices which means their expectations are high. Marketing alone cannot attract the quantity (or quality) of new customers businesses need, nor will it keep customers engaged, happy and loyal to remain.

Once you understand WHY the customer (experience) is king, we’ll roll up our sleeves and fill the gaps to turn your Customer Journey dial to 11.

Over six stages, from how you raise awareness to building an army of advocates, we’ll show you how to add value to each stage of your Customer Journey so they move from one stage to the next with ease. A workshop guaranteed to change your perspective on marketing forever, giving you the tools to manage your customers’ experience, grow your business, relationships and profit – for the long term.

Covering:

-Customer Experience – why, what and how
-The Customer Journey in six stages
-Mapping out your own Customer Journey
-How to identify opportunities and pain-points en route
-Collating innovative ideas to fill the gaps
-How to add value to each stage to attract, impress, retain and grow
-Marketing systems, templates and collateral ideas for each stage
-Actions to prioritise which stage to address first for easy wins
-How to get your team tuned into the Customer Experience

If you are tired of start-stop, knee jerk marketing campaigns and are looking to grow your business with a more consistent approach, then this workshop is for you. If you are brimming with ideas with how to give your customers the best experience, you just don’t know where to start, then let’s get to work!
