Sales, Web and Marketing Training Day’s, would you be interested?

10 November 2011 in Classroom Training, First Aid, Health & Safety, Online Training, Social Media

We are thinking about running sales and marketing training days in Birmingham and Colchester in the New Year to help develop centre’s sales of courses.  The main subjects will include:

–  Social Media, blogs
–  Increasing your web presence, and the new First Aid Junction that will be launched in the new year
–  Marketing by email, web and social media as well as selling online courses to the maximum
–  Search engine optimisation, google latest news and how our sites link and increase your coverage

The idea is to give you the information to expand your internet use to maximise sales. We will also cover using our systems to maximise sales. We will give you practical examples and work that you can complete in the workshop. Is anyone be interested? If we have enough people then we would run the training so if you are interested please email me on or send me a message through this blog.   If you are only teaching in house then this may not be of interest as it is aimed to develop business.

There would be a small charge but again this would depend on numbers.  The idea is to run maybe a Friday and Saturday in Birmingham and then if you need help in the evenings i would be there to assist at the hotel.  You would only need to attend one of the days.
