Covid-19 Recovery Workshop series: How can I connect with customers online?

September 1, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am



The pandemic has moved us to new ways of doing things. We’re having to adapt and change to meet the needs of our customers, which now include meeting the social distancing requirements. So how can you make the most of the online tools that are available to both market and sell your business virtually?

Ben will share some great ideas on using online tools such as Social Media, Video and Augmented Reality (AR) to connect with your customers so you come out of this stronger together.

This recovery workshop is open to all business owners. If you’re not already signed up with Start and Grow Enterprise, get your free ticket here.


When is the workshop?

This online workshop is taking place on Tuesday 1st September, 8-9am.


During the session, you will learn:

  • Content ideas to post on social media and your blog;
  • Ways people can experience your shop, holiday cottage or product in video and AR before they buy;
  • Tips to look great on a Zoom call, webinar or video presentation;
  • How to increase motivation and focus to make marketing part of your week.

There will be an extended Q&A session after the talk, so please come prepared with your marketing questions!
