We love to get involved with industry events here at SCS, whether they’re taking place here in Dorset or a little further afield. We love it even more when, in doing so, we get to support our lovely clients too! Last week, Christina and Amy headed down to Dorset Growth Hub’s Digital Day in Wimborne.
On Wednesday 29th May, Dorset Growth Hub delivered their very first Digital Day – a day of engaging, interactive, digital content to help businesses navigate the digital world. They cherry-picked some of the most in-demand subjects from business owners across Dorset and packaged them up into bite-sized 2-hour workshops: SEO Today, Email Marketing, Instagram Stories and Website User Experience.
There were guest companies including Insightful UX, MPZ Mail and of course, ourselves, providing industry insights to the world of Website User Experience, Social Media and Email Marketing Automation.
We formed part of the “industry expert” panel, available to answer questions and queries from business owners about the world of social media marketing. It was also a brilliant opportunity to support Dorset Growth Hub as one of our clients, gathering content and encouraging engagement on their social channels – cue the Facebook and Instagram Lives!
As social media pros, it was a great opportunity to pop into the other workshops and learn more about SEO, email marketing and UX. After all, these all work together to create the most effective marketing. It was also a chance to speak to local business owners and understand how they’re using social media and advise them on any questions / obstacles they had experienced.
What we thought
“It was a brilliant day from start to finish. I loved speaking to business owners and finding out about their journeys and how they’re using social media to reach new customers. The Email Marketing workshop with Andrew Knowles was a highlight for me – there’s always something new to learn. I also helped one lady create and share her first ever Facebook story on her business page – her excitement was so englightening and really showed how valuable events like this are.” – Christina
“It was amazing to be a part of Dorset Growth Hub’s Digital Day! It was great to see so many local businesses interested and wanting to learn about digital marketing, it just shows how important it is!” – Amy
