Essential Rules for a Web Presence That Wins
95% of the 5,000 web presences that Philippa has reviewed since 1995 were leaving money on the table – sometimes a lot of it, and their owners usually had no idea! This program presents a selection of successful management strategies and marketing tactics for establishing a winning online presence. Based on her acclaimed book "42 Rules for a Web Presence That Wins", Philippa shares her latest research into what works at a practical level, and includes real-life examples from clients, audiences and colleagues. She’ll look at websites, blogs and other forms of social media, and discuss making technology choices, designing and implementing effective strategies, creating content that makes lasting emotional connections, and measuring (and increasing) success. This will be a highly interactive workshop with questions taken throughout the session. Philippa fully customizes her remarks, using examples and case studies from participants if possible, and will bring in other relevant industry-specific information.
