Advanced Digital Marketing training in Birmingham, UK 2011

Posted by on Apr 6, 2011 in Business Opportunity |

After attending two action packed days at the Excellence & Innovation Conference, I held a one-day advance Digital Marketing training for around 60 WSI Internet Consultants. As usual these days are hard work, as I have to lecture, as there are too many attendees to have break out sessions and assignments. We do make it interactive though with questions throughout the day. I cover the complete Digital Marketing spectrum and deliver them in 3 parts: Here I am with my colleagues, Alejandro Odio, myself, Marianna Muscat, Gilles Dandel & Doug Schust. 1.    Online Lead Generation: Introducing all the ways to generate leads online in priority of our clients business goals 2.    Online Brand credibility: In this section we introduce all the Social technologies to use. Social Tech is really important for word of mouth referrals 3.    Communicate and stay in touch: After your prospect or client has visited your site, what are the techniques to use to keep in touch and stay top of mind. 4.    We then ended off with account management strategies. The solutions discussed are Competitor Analysis, Marketing Research and measurement dashboards. It was good fun and great to meet with my fellow ICS. My next training session will be two days on Bogota, Colombia and a week later in Orlando. Looking forward to seeing the WSI Internet Consultants from that area. Last year we had a blast.

Francois Muscat receives WSI Area Representative Award 2011

Posted by on Apr 6, 2011 in Business Opportunity |

I am on a roll this month and attending the WSI E&I Conference in Birmingham was a pleasure. Following on from the Community Award, later in the evening I was surprised to win another award, two in one night, wow. The Area Rep award, which is based on performance, achieved for the South African region of which I look after. The Area Rep award is challenging as it is based on performance against all the other countries. We scraped in at 5th place just behind Canada & France. Mexico & Monterrey took the first 2 positions with a revenue increase of 140%. That is an excellent result and Carlos Guzman & Alberto Ferreiro must have worked really hard to achieve that. Just goes to show how well the Mexican Marketing is growing with regards to Digital Marketing.  We achieved a 34% increase, which is really pleasing considering our currency is weaker than our European & American counterparts. So the South Africans are on the board and we are going to work hard to move up the ladder next year. Please follow and like...
