What is Internet Marketing?
In this session, you will teach participants about Internet marketing plans as being a component of the overall marketing plan for the company. You will also discuss how the goal is to draw visitors to their web site (whether this is the hub site or a sub-domain), to engage visitors with good strong content, and to get involved in the community. Students will also briefly review popular strategies for Internet marketing.
Creating an Internet Marketing Plan
Students will review what they already have for a marketing plan as a reflection of the six stages of marketing: consumer and market analysis; analyzing the competition and themselves; analyzing distribution channels; creating a marketing plan; and implementation, review, and revisions.
Extending Your Influence
Students will learn what it means to create an environment of influence and connect with their customers and prospects via the Internet, as opposed to direct selling methods.
Many companies use e-mail marketing campaigns, and this session is about doing it in a way that connects with consumers without spamming them. You will also cover using distribution services to thwart spam filters, create engaging templates, and manage their database of contacts.
Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
In this session, students will learn how SEO can help them bring more visitors to their websites and attract pre-qualified customers. You’ll teach about using search engines, using keywords and metatags, monitoring results, and making adjustments to the campaign.
This session looks at the pay-per-click ad as a way to appeal to customers and grab their attention. This session includes information on setting up an account, choosing keywords, writing ads, and setting limits for the campaign.
In Person Training
The traditional classroom style of training remains our Most Popular and Most Requested format. On-site training provides participants with an in-person facilitator who will work directly with the team, whether for a single training session or a training series. The Mainstream team will craft and tailor your experience to ensure that your training session is specific, relevant and unique to your audience while meeting your learning objectives. Why settle for ‘pre-formatted, pre-scripted, one-size fits all’ training programs, when our team is able to customize a program that is just right for you? We know that every team has unique learning needs, situations and that they come from a variety of industries, each having unique customer needs and demands. Our programs can be scaled to accommodate time restraints, unique learning needs and even industry or company nuances and barriers.
Don’t settle for a program that gives you almost what you need; our team wants to give you Exactly what you need.
Delivering traditional onsite training results …virtually!
We’ve officially changed the rules and redefined what is possible in the world of soft skills learning. Our unique technology, accompanied by honed delivery methodology, have successfully replicated the traditional classroom-style training environment, allowing it to exist online.
Most online training solutions limit participants’ responses to keystrokes or to single person conversations because -with inferior technology- group discussions become distorted and confusing to follow. Our Virtual Room has eliminated those barriers and encourages learning through meaningful instructor feedback, skills modelling and engaging group discussion, without visual or audio distortion
The Virtual Room is for any organization seeking a flexible substitute to traditional onsite training; whether to lower costs, eliminate unnecessary travel or to simply ease the burden of demanding work schedules.
Lunch & Learn
A Lunch and Learn session is an onsite or virtual learning program with a facilitator-led session sharing valuable information and skills on an area of identified learning interest. It’s a great break away from a traditional training program, allowing your team the opportunity to learn while enjoying their lunch. Due to the limited time, the program focuses on specific learning concepts and skills. It is an interactive session that quickly targets and reveals learning objectives that are predetermined by the training organizer. Lunch & Learn sessions are also great as a training series, providing progressive learning programs for developing skills in a ‘bite-sized’ format.
