5 Essentials you need to know before you build or rebuild your website @ Wantima Country Club
Mar 17 @ 9:30 am – 11:30 am
5 Essentials you need to know before you build or rebuild your website @ Wantima Country Club | Brendale | Queensland | Australia

Imagine your website is your front store. How would you like it to look? Would it have pretty coloured pot plants out the front, or would every surface be covered in advertising material? Would you have a sign out front that would be obvious from a distance, or is there an expectation that anyone walking past would know what you sell?

Your website is an extension of your business. In most cases it is the first time a potential customer could meet you. The saying always is – you have 7 seconds to make an impression! Question – what kind of impression do, YOU want to make.

At the end of this 2 hour workshop you will have the knowledge to:

  • Determine what you ACTUALLY need in your website
  • Know the right questions to ask of an expert
  • Understand the fundamentals of website creation
  • Develop the basis of your website strategy

This workshop is ideal for those who:

  • Are yet to build a website for their business
  • Have a website but it is outdated
  • Looking to build a new website for their business

When you attend, you will receive a hard copy of the Marketing Blueprint so you can begin to create your Marketing Map for 2020

Mar 18 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am
Webinar - How strong is your brand? 6 Simple steps to building a brand as big as Branson! @ Webinar

WITH TELIA RACITI

What is it about the Virgin brand that is so memorable? Is it the big V or, is it Branson himself? Perhaps it is a combination of both?

Your Brand Identity encompasses visual references like your logo, business card, social media graphics and signage, even the look of your website.
Branding however, speaks to the emotions of your customer – it’s a set of expectations, memories, stories, and relationships that, taken together, account for a consumer’s decision to choose one product or service over another.

Both aspects need to be visible, relatable and memorable if you want to attract quality clients who will pay a premium, spread the word and keep coming back.

In this webinar, I’ll take you through 6 simple steps to help you understand and measure where and how often your customers come into contact with your brand.

Simple strategies to get clear on what you offer, how you want to be perceived and received in the market place, and how design and language impacts buyers decisions.
