During the seminar, we will describe the different digital media and explore how to optimize your digital strategy using the right digital tool; website, SEO, Paid Search, Affiliation, email. We will provide a toolbox for digital marketing and communications professionals (Paid media) to help you understand the key issues and success factors of digital marketing strategy.
Workshop 3: Writing for the web
Writing for the web is different. People who visit and use your website or Intranet have different needs and expectations to those who read your messages through other channels. In this workshop you will discover how to write great content that meets these needs and keeps your visitors coming back.

But don’t believe us, for our last workshops, 100% of participants said they would attend future workshops, according to our post-workshop survey. Still not convinced? Here are some quotes from past participants:
“I found the workshop useful, and quite fun as well. It was definitely worthwhile”
“This workshop gave me the opportunity to make a stop from my routine to evaluate my daily work activities and reflect on many things that I could somehow improve at work”
“The workshop provided me with a lot of tips and principles that I can easily use every day in my job and that will make my life easier! Thanks a lot”
“The workshop was extremely interactive and adapted to the participants’ needs.

I like also the balance of participants as they helped me meet peoples with different background and areas of focus and I found it highly mind opening.”
