    WORKSHOP DETAILS:

    I- Workshop on Developing Successful Internet Marketing Plans by Michael McGrath from Kiss Computing
    The purpose of Internet Marketing is to increase visitor traffic to your web site, and thus to increase the likelihood of business with those visitors. This workshop will begin with the question: Is your web site ready to receive those visitors?, and then walk you through some basic but very specific steps you should take in assembling your Internet Marketing Plan.

    We'll utilize a checklist work sheet and fill in the blanks forms to help you get your plan started or modify your existing plan. Since Internet marketing strategy is an integral part of Internet Marketing Plan, we’ll discuss marketing strategy development including your marketing mix. Special emphasis will be placed on optimizing your site for an easy find on search engines, email address capture and the use of e-newsletter service bureaus, and the effectiveness of social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter.

    II- Presentation What is involved in running a successful web business? Dos and don’ts! by Francisco Samuel from Abacus Software and Dianne Thurber from Cardinal Marketing. 

    The outline of the presentation is below:

      WORKSHOP DETAILS:
      Internet marketing and Traditional Marketing have a number of things in common. For example both adhere to a sales funnel, the process from awareness to action. And, both require a critical process that every business (particularly online businesses) should engage in benchmark analysis before stepping into the sales funnel. Most businesses completely forget this step or don't know where to begin. 

      When companies consider a new product line, service or business, they can capitalize on the power of Internet Marketing to become engaged in the sales funnel. 

      The workshop will focus on the following and discuss how much more chance of success would you have if you knew the following:

      1) What people were saying about your business?
      2) How people were finding you OR your competitors online and exactly WHAT they were typing into the search engines to find your product or service 
      3) Where your web site was ranked within the entire Internet world?
      4) WHO are your online competitors?
      5) WHAT online strategy your TOP competitors are using and HOW they got to the top?
      6) How to develop a site profile or benchmark and be able to measure the actual progress of an online marketing campaign?
      7) How to find out what the DEMAND was for your product or service, even within a small geographic area? (e.g., Boston Business Consultant - even BEFORE you invested in the product or business)
      8) How to spy on your successful competitors and duplicate their specific success strategies
