Internet + Email Marketing

Learn what works and what works against you in the world of internet marketing. Sometimes it's what you don't know that actually can hurt you. Let's have that conversation.

Today's brief program will begin with a review of the process of launching a new website. We'll have a list of questions to ask and steps to take, whether you are starting new or updating something that already exists. 

Next, we will break down the elements of email marketing. This tried-and-true medium has proven to be the most cost-effective means of digital marketing. At the same time, it is important to mange your email marketing using best practices in order to avoid the possibility of disaster.

Finally, we'll figure out how best to integrate social media. This is usually where the topic of time management comes in to play. 

During this program, questions are welcome. And you can expect a live demonstration whenever the answer calls for it.
