    Presenter - Anne Williamson, Customer Love

    Topic - How the Principles of Dating Can Help You Grow Your Business

    Are you putting people off doing business with you, without even realising it? You may even be losing future sales because you have treated your customer like a one night stand. It is so easy to fall into the trap of looking for new business all the time, whilst ignoring the customers you already have. Being in business has so much in common with dating ? it is all about the building quality relationships with our customers. In this fun and interactive seminar you will be taken through several of the stages of dating and discover how they apply to business. Each stage will be backed up with real life business examples - not dating examples that?s a totally different seminar;) Packed full of hints and tips for you to start wooing your customers (in a business sense). I?ve spent over 25 years in marketing, constantly building relationships with customers (online and offline) and have always been driven by delivering the best customer service possible. My book ?Are you a one night stand business?? delves deeper into where businesses can be losing sales through the way they treat potential and existing customers. My 25+ years marketing experience is backed by my Professional Diploma in Marketing but delivered with a cheeky G & T twist.

    Presenter - Robert Clarke and Paul Whitfield

    Topic - Buying Customers - The Truth About Online Advertising

    Buying Customers - The Truth About Online Advertising That Some Digital Agencies Do Not Want You To Know About

    You would be forgiven for thinking that the ?top of page? ads are reserved for the highest paying customers. The truth is that the amount you are bidding is only one of five factors that determines your ad position.

    We will show you how to create high quality ads with super relevant content that will improve sales AND reduce costs.

    We?ll also explain how associated benefits (i.e. brand awareness and increased traffic) may or may not have the desired effect when it comes to delivering a return on your investment.

    SPOILER ALERT! ? We will demonstrate how our growth model proves that you don?t need a big budget to compete with the big boys! Something that those companies that want you to spend more don?t want you to hear.

    Robert Clarke ? Co-director of BrightRED, Robert oversees digital marketing activities for businesses in many different sectors. His experience in online advertising ranges from campaigns for FTSE 100 companies to sole traders.

    Paul Whitfield ? Following 15 years working in the corporate world, Paul now operates a portfolio of businesses in the North West. His frustration when engaging online agencies led Paul to invest in his own agency. This experience of online advertising as a customers and also as co-director of BrightRED provides a unique insight from both sides of the table.

    Both Robert and Paul are passionate about using their combined experience and knowledge to help SMEs to develop and grow.

What members and guests say

"The Business Network: exceptionally organised, beautifully delivered, a wonderful platform which offers the opportunity to create long lasting links and develop meaningful business relationships."

Ian Hooper

"Eden Marketing has been a member of the Business Network for the past five years. The morning seminars are engaging and you leave with lots of food for thought and actions you can apply immediately. The members are experts in their field, generous with their time and conversations around the table are interesting, giving you quality time to get to know both guests and members. The Business Network is beneficial to Eden Marketing and also to myself as a Director. I have developed a strong network of trusted specialists who I can call upon for both Eden Marketing and our Clients. The business has grown through referrals and direct business and I can't speak highly enough of Karen Tems and the fantastic members who make up the Business Network."
