Understanding Your Customers – Persona Development Workshop @ Ideal Marketing Company
Feb 14 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm
Understanding Your Customers - Persona Development Workshop @ Ideal Marketing Company

A crucial part of understanding you and driving your business objectives involves understanding your customers, what drives them and how to find them. By doing this, you’re in a better position to make strategic decisions. For example, it may be that your most profitable target market is really active on Twitter, so a targeted Twitter campaign which speaks to their motivations would be a good idea, but you won’t know that without doing some research.

Persona development is the first step in developing a marketing strategy that supports your business goals and returns a positive return on investment for your marketing spend.

In this workshop, we will work through the process of building up to 6 personas to be further refined and agreed with your team, then prioritise with the intention of building it into a marketing plan.

To do this, we’ll investigate your:

  • Existing customers
  • Previous experience
  • Future targeting preference

Results

Knowing your personas takes the guesswork away from marketing. Attendees will leave with a clearer understanding of their customers, and where best to focus marketing efforts. The resulting documentation can be returned to again and again – to build a marketing plan, deciding which channels to focus your attention on, for writing messages on marketing materials, deciding which campaigns to run and briefing marketing creatives and more.

Delegates will leave with:

  • A template to use for building and prioritising personas
  • Lightbulb moments
  • Messaging to use to engage your customers
  • The best targeting options to reach your customers

Who should attend?

Business owners, marketing managers, or anyone involved in selling.

If you’ve felt pulled in lots of different directions by the things that you feel you ‘should’ do, personas can help to focus attention on the things that are most likely to yield results, saving time and money.

You almost certainly have a LinkedIn account, but are you harnessing even a fraction of its full power for your business?

  • How to find valuable prospects
  • Using LinkedIn groups

  • Using LinkedIn advertising

How to Measure Digital Marketing Success with Google Analytics @ Ideal Marketing Company
Mar 13 @ 9:30 am – 12:30 pm
How to Measure Digital Marketing Success with Google Analytics @ Ideal Marketing Company

Do you struggle to demonstrate the value of your digital marketing activities to your managers, board, or even to yourself? Good marketing is crucial to the success of a business, but without proof that it’s good, it can be hard to get the budget or buy-in from your colleagues that are required for you to do your job.

While tools like Google’s Analytics, Google Ads and Search Console alongside data from email reporting give you a wealth of information, this can be hard to decipher and even harder to translate into terms that people who don’t specialise in marketing understand. Data does not equal insight on its own and is rarely actionable. It’s how you manipulate data that points you in the right direction, of what is working and what can be improved upon.

In this session, we will give you ways to:

  • Identify business goals, KPI’s and targets to report against in your marketing activities
  • Set up tracking that allows you to monitor performance against your targets
  • Optimise Google Analytics
  • Set up reporting that isn’t overwhelming and just gives you the most important information
  • Access the templates and tools we trust most
  • Report on the quality of different channels
  • Monitor your performance in search engines
  • Highlight key takeaways from your reports in a few, easy to digest sentences

This is an interactive workshop so please bring laptops and ensure that you have the login to your Google Analytics account. You’ll be given access to our wifi and power ports.

If you don’t have Google Analytics set up and on your website, let us know before the event and we will do what we can to get you set up or refund your fee.

Results

Delegates will leave with:

  • Actions to start measuring your digital marketing tomorrow
  • A list of resources to use after the workshop
  • Their questions answered
  • PDF slide deck from the event in paper and email form

What others have to say:

“Very informative session – certainly have a lot to go away with and most importantly put into practice”

“Very useful seminar with knowledgeable presenter”

“Highly informative with good interactivity to allow knowledge sharing”
