SiSo Presents: How to create a lead-generating marketing strategy

January 31 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm


Silicon South’s “Open Accelerator Programme” returns for it’s third series!

Providing eleven weeks of 2 hour workshops and 1-2-1 support run by local experts the Silicon South team will take you from understanding your value proposition to sales, investment and how to go about running the business you’ve created.

Launching a digital or technology product is no mean feat, it takes time, dedication and expertise, but we’re here to help. From starting up to scaling up, we have you covered with Business Planning, Marketing, Branding and Operations.

This “Drop In” accelerator programme enables you to pick and choose the workshops you want to attend, to provide you with the best value for your time. View our full workshop schedule here.

Fully funded by the European Regional Development fund, you’ll be receiving over £3,000 worth of support over the course, as well as the opportunity to apply for grant funding at the end of the programme of up to £5,000.

You’ll have the opportunity to drastically accelerate the growth of your business, as well as meet with fellow entrepreneurs going along the same journey, and some of the leading experts in the industry.

The final format is to be confirmed but the workshop should cover the following:

  • Andy will present different marketing options a company can use to reach customers – from Google Ad words to sponsorship
  • He will introduce a methodology to help you decide what are the best customer ‘touch points’ for you
  • He will help you understand what stimulus or messages you will need to gain attention
  • You will have a chance to start mapping out your best choices on templates provided

At the end of the session you will have written your own initial plan – and have the tools and understanding to develop it in your own time. You can also receive further support to develop or review the plan, from SiSo, at a later date.

Find out more about Andy here: https://www.linkedin.com/in/andyheadington

Spaces are limited to just 12 to provide you with a more interactive and engaging experience – if you cannot attend, please let us know so another can take your place.

Workshops are free to attend due to funding from the European Regional Development Fund, and can lead to further engagement with the project, such as grants, mentoring or support.
