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.
When combined with Digital marketing, Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) can generate around 25% more business revenue. Search is the primary driver of traffic to content websites, beating social media by more than 300%. According to research, 93% of online experiences and Internet usage begin with a keyword search; making search engines a focal point for online lead generation. It is estimated that SEO leads have a 14.6% close rate compared to outbound leads (such a direct mail or print advertising), which have a 1.7% close rate.
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 utilising SEO techniques, social media 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.
