Hear from Previous Participants
With the emergence of social media and advancements in technology, individuals are spending more time on their mobile devices than ever before; accessing social media and online content. Every day there are over 500 million Tweets, 4.5 billion Likes from 2 billion users on Facebook, 3.5 billion searches on Google and 95 million photos & videos uploaded to Instagram. As such, social media platforms and search engines generate a huge amount of data about potential/current customers in real time — who they are, where they are, what they like, how they buy and how they feel about your brand. There are no better avenues to provide easy access to business content, products and services for such customers than these, which they are already accustomed to.
With the sheer amount of targets to potentially reach out to on these platforms, it would be detrimental to disregard the potential increase in both revenue and brand visibility that is possible through digital and social media platforms.
Social media is currently the No. 1 driver of referral traffic to websites, responsible for 31.24 percent of the total.
When combined with Digital marketing, Social Media can increase revenue by more than 60%. According to research, Facebook has overtaken Google as the top traffic source to news sites. Facebook now accounts for about 40 percent of all referral traffic to news sites, while all Google sites account for 38 percent; making social media a focal point for online lead generation.
All considered it is apparent that organisations need clear strategies, like those offered on this course to remain relevant in the digital age or risk being overtaken by their competitors.
This session will unearth practical solutions and strategies for utilizing social media marketing techniques, digital marketing strategies, landing page optimization, Google and Bing paid ads and other IT platforms towards customer acquisition & retention, increased brand awareness, increased sales & revenue. It will provide an opportunity for individuals without technical expertise to cost-effectively acquire hands-on, practical training on the skills required to run successful Digital & Social Media campaigns that aid sustainable growth & development.
Skills acquired can also be applied to other types of businesses, i.e where credit union members run private SMEs. Register here >>
Christian’s brain works as quickly as the internet when it comes to digital strategies and marketing ideas. He was free with his advice and guidance and whatever else he thought would help us understand and implement the knowledge into our organisations’ digital strategies. He has an interactive form of training that allows your learning to be as targeted as it can be in a diverse group setting. I am excited and am looking forward to creating and rolling out a full digital strategy for my organisation. Thank you, Rhics!
I just want to thank Christian for journeying all the way to Grenada to do this for us. I think it is a much-needed program at this point in Grenada where we are moving and transition into a time whereby everything is done online.
The greatest takeaway for myself and my team is that we’re able to improve our inbound marketing and sale. Also, how to attract customers, convert them and close them.
The digital age is upon us. Guyana is an right now in the emerging state so internet boom will be upon us soon. Digital technologies, so to speak, should be adopted by everyone. We should transform our current ways of doing things and go digital because that is where the future is.
One of the things I’ve learned so far from this training is that there are so many platforms that you could advertise your business or organization to earn more support or clients. We’ve learned a lot so far.
I’ve learned that we don’t need to fight our competition; we can cooperate to get a co-opetition.
One of the things that stood out to me is the fact that in order for your business to be relevant in this technological age, you can use the different social media platforms to promote your business. It can help you to get more customers.
I found the training in digital strategies for business growth to be a real and practical journey towards my organization achieving a competitive edge in the industry; the finance e industry. It really put in focus our strategic plans; how we target our customers and remain relevant in a digital marketing world.
I’ve been to the business transformation course in Guyana. It was awesome and I encourage all of you to try and get digitally transformed.
I must say this course has been very insightful and I would recommend it for anywhere who is serious about marketing and business growth.
I just completed the Digital Strategies for Business Growth course which was moderated by Christian. This guy is fantastic; he knows his stuff. His delivery mechanisms are fantastic. He’s very conversant with the topic and I would suggest this course to everyone. My main takeaway from this course is that it has opened my mind up to all the possibilities that the social media platforms can deliver value to my customers and as a consequence of that benefit to me and my practice.
Coming out of this training, I have a better understanding of the most cost-effective tools that I can use to market my business.
