Time: 09:30 - 12:30

Date: 09/06/2023

Division: GBCC

Venue: STEAMhouse


Guess what?... Marketing is NOT about being on Facebook! Granted, digital marketing is an important tool for many businesses but it has to be part of an overall marketing strategy, otherwise costly mistakes and a lack of ideal clients will be the result. Marketing is daunting for many businesses and does require skills that many businesses are not familiar with. 

This module is 3 of 6 from the Start-up and Small Business Academy and is designed to take you through how to create the basis of a strong, effective marketing plan for your business.
