Setting you up for success 

We know that attending a workshop is not enough to master digital marketing and to see results for your business. 

For this reason, we have built in all the help and support you need to take the learnings from each workshop and then apply them to your business. 

  1. Each workshop comes with supporting worksheets to apply the knowledge to your business, cheat sheets and additional resources like tools, ideas and examples. 
  2. Each workshop has a follow-up one-hour session (the Office Hour) where you can come along and ask any question, ask for help, demonstrations of tools and more. These sessions are designed to be about you getting one-on-one assistance.
  3. We've created an online portal where you can access all the materials mentioned above, including video and audio recordings of the workshops and office hour sessions, at any time of the day. What's more, you can also ask questions and get more help by simply posting on the portal. 

One-on-one mentoring 

We are also offering free one-on-one digital solutions and strategy sessions for the first 20 businesses that join. You can use this session to get advice and help from our digital marketing expert and guide.

What is the time commitment? 

Each workshop and the companion Office Hours session is one hour long. However, we suggest you set aside at least 3 to4 hours to action the workshop output if you genuinely want to see results from your learnings – and digital marketing efforts.

How do I get access to the free one-on-one digital strategy mentoring session? 

We have only 20 sessions available, so we will be taking the first 20 businesses that register.

The first workshop is a must if you want to get the most out of the program. This first workshop will help you develop a personalised plan of action for your digital marketing.

Do I have to attend all the workshops? 

We encourage you to pick the relevant workshops for your business based on your action plan and focus your 'efforts' on those channels. We know time is valuable, so we want to give you the tools and support to help you focus on those things that will matter most to your business.

What if I just want to attend one of the workshops without joining the program? 

You can attend any of the workshops without being a member of the program, but only members of the program will be able to access the additional Office Hours session and worksheets, cheat sheets, templates and other resources.
