QLD WIF Afternoon Networking Event 12/7/2018

The FCA Queensland Chapter together with the Women in Franchising (WIF) Committee invite you to an afternoon networking event to be held at Darling & Co. in Paddington.

The way Franchise Groups handle marketing is changing rapidly and we all should be adopting a multi-channel approach to maximise impact and get cut through. The traditional methods of marketing aren't as affective as they used to be.

We have a great line up for this event. Our Panel of Experts include the National Marketing Manager from a leading Franchise Group, a Digital Marketing guru and a specialist in SEO and social media marketing.

Whilst this event is hosted by the QLD Women in Franchising group, all are welcome.

Join us for afternoon tea and we will take you on an amazing Integrated Multi-Channel Marketing Journey.

Attend this event to:

  • Understand the landscape of multi-channel marketing
  • Get tips on how to assess where your business is positioned in the multi-channel marketing space
  • Learn how to bring value into your marketing and utilise it across multiple channels for better time management and integration of content
  • Discover where multi-channel marketing is going in the future
  • Know what you need to be thinking about now to better engage your audience
  • Know what you need to be actioning now to better engage your audience

Great opportunity for networking, learning, storytelling, laughter and fun!
