Grow Your Business with SaveLocal Deals

Thursday, December 12, 2013 - 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM

This workshop is designed to give small businesses and nonprofit organizations some simple ideas for growing their organizations using email marketing and social media.

Topics include:

  • What do I say? Quick, easy, & engaging ideas to write about;
  • How to get more people to stop and read your messages;
  • What's your call to action? How to get more action, or reaction, to your messages and offers;
  • Time-starved? No problem! We will discuss what it means to run a campaign and tactics for measuring success -- without spending a lot of time or money

Participants will leave with a workbook full of ideas for timing their messages, how to write a winning subject line, what kinds of offers or content they want to try and how best to approach their next outreach project.

This class is best suited for beginners in online marketing. We will touch on Facebook, how to use images (photos, albums and videos) for higher impact -- and we will even cover the importance of mobile-friendly content for higher engagement.

This is a great class for beginners and smaller organizations looking to accomplish more in less time and with a small budget!

BONUS: SaveLocal Deals - Local Savings Deals: Your Way!

The days of paying 50% of your revenues to a deal provider that brings you only one-time deal-seekers unlikely to return are over! It doesn't just end there - We also help you stay in touch with new buyers to keep them coming back.

Your deal, your way - With Save Local, you choose the discount amount, the terms, when the deal runs and ultimately how many to sell. The right deal means a great experience for your customers and more new business for you.

In Getting Started with SaveLocal we'll introduce you to the SaveLocal product and learn:

  • Why doing a deal with SaveLocal means greater success for your business;
  • How to avoid common mistakes that lead to bad deals, and tips to create the perfect deal;
  • What to consider before you run your deal: What are the best deals to run, how to set realistic goals and how to prepare your business and staff for all the new traffic!
  • The ideal customers to promote to and the key messages to entice purchases;
  • How to properly track redemption, measure your deal's success, and how to follow up (with email and social campaigns) to encourage repeat business

Throughout the seminar we'll discuss the best ways to promote the deal and encourage your customers to share the deal with their family and friends, which will earn them bonus discounts and bring in new customers for you!
