Google comes to the seaside!

Google comes to the seaside

Google has chosen the seaside as its destination to showcase the latest trends for growing your business.

The search engine giant is one of the headline acts at Blackpool’s first ever Enterprise Week which takes place from April 18-22.

Blackpool Council will host the week of free and professional events at venues across the resort, aimed to enthuse and inspire business start-ups and established companies.

This is the first time Google has taken its Digital Garage workshop outside a major UK city.

There will also be presentations and practical workshops from global banking giant Santander, UK Trade & Investment and a number of established local businesses which have been helped by Blackpool Council’s business support schemes, Get Started and Blackpool Unlimited.

Viva Blackpool (?) will be the venue for the launch of BEW with the Enterprise Centre on Lytham Road, the resort’s Winter Gardens and the Solaris Centre being used for workshops, networking events and masterclasses.

Blackpool Enterprise Week comes after the town hosted its first Global Entrepreneurship Week events last November which saw hundreds of people attend a number of free events across its business venues.

Themes for BEW include Business Growth, Digital Marketing, Taking Care of Business, Marketing and Selling and Inspiring Business Success.

Social Media

All the tweets and posts in the world won’t help generate leads unless there’s some strategic thinking behind what you’re doing.

We’ll help define the right social media strategy for you, so that you’re on the right platforms, saying the right things to the right people at the right time to generate the right leads.

Design & Brand Building

Marketing is bit like those huge, swirling flocks of starlings you see from time to time. Individually your brochure, email, ad, meme or gif may not change the world.

But when you join them together and ensure they’re all heading in the same direction, you have the power to stop people in their tracks.

We design communications that help build a consistent brand and convert more leads to sales.

Your website can generate leads in so many ways. Informed content. Strong calls to action. A simple, natural journey from ‘Hi there!’ to ‘Buy now’.

Yet websites are never ‘done’. They need to keep evolving to keep pace with your customers’ expectations, so we’ll be with you for the long haul to keep tweaking, refining and growing your site – and to deliver the PPC campaigns that help drive traffic towards it.

Because when your website keeps working to understand and speak to your audience, you’ve got more chance of converting.
