Training
CONTENT PLANNING
June 15
9:00 a.m. - 10:15 a.m.
Free to Retail Alliance members - $10 non members
Whether you’ve just started your content marketing plan or you’ve been using the same approach for a while, it never hurts to revisit what you’re doing — to make sure it’s up-to-date, innovative, and engaging for your prospects and customers, no matter when or how they intend to buy.
The first step to getting a leg up on the competition — and actively engaging your audience — is to have a solid, smart content marketing plan in place.
Bobbie Anne Williams, Germono Advertising Company, will teach you how to draft a complete content plan by showing you how to create or find content, plan out your year, and implement day-to-day strategies to keep you on track.
Learn how to create a plan that will serve you the entire year, month-to-month, and day-to-day!
