Constant Contact Workshops
The Power of the Inbox (Aug. 5)
What is the first impression you give when customers or prospects see you in their email inbox? And when they see you there, what do they do?
From revealing why regular email doesn’t work, to insider tips and techniques like automated list building tools and the design elements that work (and those that don’t!), this seminar will give you the keys to the most effective marketing you can do: email marketing.
Harness the Power of Mobile (Sept. 8)
Participants will learn how to use mobile technology to promote themselves and drive more business. Mobile Internet usage is growing fast – more people are starting to receive and read your email and social media messages with their smartphones.
And more businesses are starting to use mobile to create marketing communications and make it easy for their customers to buy from them. Join us for this workshop to make mobile a part of your business.
