How to market your food business like a pro
Producing incredible food that wows your customers is the first step in putting your business on the map. Step two is to use digital marketing to tell the world about this delicious culinary innovation and grow your brand. Do you know the best ways to use the photographs, blogs and social media to reach your foodie consumers? If you don’t, we can help you.
At our training day, you’ll be taught the tricks of digital marketing by professionals. You’ll find out how to plate up a dish to be camera ready and how to capture a mouth-watering image. Our experts will share the secrets of engaging blog posts, and how to use social media to spread the word far and wide. This fun-filled, informative day will also give you the chance to network with fellow food producers, quiz the speakers and enjoy a lunch provided by Gold Leaf Catering.
To maximise your learning potential we will be running each workshop several times throughout the day with small groups. So, you don’t need to worry about missing anything or getting stuck in a big group. Everyone will have the chance to ask questions and interact with our experts.
