Multi-Channel Marketing Academy?
Consumer behavior is rapidly evolving today and there’s never been a more important time to up-level your marketing and communications with your brand fan. The Multi-Channel Marketing Academy is an eight week, immersive digital learning experience created for specialty brand leaders intent on modernizing their skills and strategies through COVID-19 and the ensuing recession.
Whether you are a seasoned marketing professional looking to up-level your multi-channel strategy, a business leader looking to rethink your strategy in light of recent changes, or a startup working to create and execute marketing that will put you on the map, this course will give you new skills and strategies to grow and engage your community across the most relevant channels, while driving your end goal – generating sales.
Registration for the Academy opens on September 15, 2020. We intentionally chose this time frame because it overlays with key planning windows. We will be creating your blueprint for 2021 together, in real time, as we consider the backdrop of consumer trends, COVID and recovery from the recession. The curriculum is custom tailored to support:
- Planning and budgeting for 2021
- COVID-19 communications best practices
- Guest lecturer specialists on specific social media channels, marketplaces and search engines, enabling you to understand the best demand-drivers and audience building strategies working today
- How to evolve your sales channels to be more of a healthy split between your founding channel and new channels (specifically e-commerce and wholesale)
Presented by Kristin Carpenter, the Academy pulls from Verde’s two decades of specialty marketing and brand communications experience, as well as the agency’s new playbook, created over the past three years through the Channel Mastery podcast.
This new course promises to be THE resource for specialty brand leaders who are looking to level the marketing playing field and learn what it means today to go ‘direct to consumer.’ Join today and commit to being 100-percent in service to your target consumer, instead of your company’s distribution channels.
In addition to recasting your approach to multi-channel marketing to exceed the expectations of today’s discerning consumer, this course will also teach you how to track and present your results and truly advocate for the target consumer within your organization, which will help you evolve your leadership.
