DESCRIPTION

Marketing is one of the most important components needed for fashion businesses to thrive. Due to the advancement of technology, trends and culture influences, the way we communicate with our consumers has changed dramatically.

As a fashion brand, it can be daunting thinking about marketing and it normally boils down to two things - a lack of understanding and a lack of funds.

But effective marketing strategy doesn't necessarily mean spending a lot on promotion. It's about understanding your audience, nailing down the best tactics that work for it and being consistent.

This workshop will provide you with fundamental tactics, covering the following topics:

  • Content Marketing
  • Guerrilla Marketing
  • Social Media
  • Traditional Marketing
  • Email Marketing
  • Case Studies
  • Do’s and Don’t’s
  • And much more...

There will be a Q&A session at the end of the workshop for any burning queries.

Spaces for this workshop are limited so please book in advance to avoid disappointment.
