Free ‘Marketing on a Shoestring’ event jointly run by D2N2 Growth Hub

Companies can learn about low-cost marketing using the internet and social media, at a free event jointly arranged by the D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership’s Growth Hub team next week.

‘Marketing on a Shoestring’ is a collaboration between High Peak Borough Council, Business Peak District and the D2N2 Growth Hub. It will run from 9am- 11am on Wednesday June 24 at Glossop Municipal Buildings in Glossop, Derbyshire (SK13 8AF).

Duncan Wright, from Glossop-based BSA Marketing, will cover subjects such as how businesses can ‘tell their story’ on the worldwide web, getting marketing messages out when faced with a tight budget and how to use social media to build awareness of the company brand. The event will show businesses how the internet and social media can be a far less expensive way of marketing their business and communicating with customers.
