The Advantages of Business Networking Events
Business networking events are a must for all businesses simply because they are a great way to…well, network. Seriously though, networking events should make up a part of your business diary. Not only do you get to meet interesting people, you may even find a potential client or 2. A lot of networking events are also free and include interesting and informative talks ranging from subjects such as ‘Help with your Business Accounting’ to ‘Planning a Social Media Strategy for your International Business’, and this is exactly what the MD of Clements Marketing Alan Clements, spoke about in February 2015 at the DNCC International Trade Forum at PKF Cooper Parry. Alan’s talk was aimed at companies who are starting up or wanting to expand their business and need cost effective ways to use the internet to promote their company.
Alan gave a brief outline of the way to build an effective web presence, the way to be found on the search engines and the options available to advertise your business product or services. The talk included ideas that covered the following:
- Things to consider when building your website
- How to get on the first page of Google
- The various ways to advertise on the internet
- Social media you should use
It was a great success and Alan went down a storm with a flurry of emails hitting his inbox before he’d even stepped foot back in to the office.
