If you’re looking for that elusive raise and want to learn new digital marketing tactics that you can impress your boss with, you don’t have to look far for inspiration. The Digital Gaggle conference, which takes place at Bristol’s Watershed Cinema on Thursday 4th April, can help you navigate the complex realm of digital marketing and learn some useful things along the way.
What is Digital Gaggle?
Digital Gaggle is a digital marketing conference which strips away the unnecessary pomp and formality of a corporate networking event. You can expect talks from speakers at the top of their game who will share really useful hands-on advice which you can apply to your own marketing strategy. The conference is an excellent opportunity to meet like-minded people, pool together ideas, fill your brain with new strategies, and put you in touch with innovators from the digital marketing field.
If you’re sold on the idea of attending Digital Gaggle but need to get the time out of the office OK’d by your boss then check out this list of reasons as to why you should attend below...
Why should you attend Digital Gaggle?
It can be hard to persuade your boss to give you time out of the office but armed with these reasons even the sternest director will be sending you straight to Digital Gaggle!
1. You’ll learn practical advice from leaders in the industry!
You have access to six talks throughout the afternoon event - the talks are filled with tried and tested knowledge from people who know what they’re talking about, and aren’t just going to spend 30 minutes giving you a corporate stuffy sales pitch. You’ll leave the event with a notebook jam packed with useful, actionable advice that you can apply to your own marketing strategy.
2. You’ll be inspired to tackle new approaches from people in the know.
You’ll get to hear from true innovators in marketing who are constantly adapting to the demands of the digital landscape. The speakers will offer you radical new approaches to marketing tactics which you will be able to implement to help you grow your business. You’ll come back to the office a trailblazer in new ways of marketing (and might even make your boss look bad!)
3. You’ll have the chance to challenge your current way of thinking.
It can be easy to get bogged down in mechanised approaches to your marketing, using the same techniques again and again or focusing your resources in the wrong area for your clients. Digital Gaggle is excellent for challenging your existing way of doing things and assisting you in implementing new ideas to help you stand out from the competition and wow your manager.
4. You’ll be put in touch with other professionals in your field.
Because it’s a local conference you’ll have the opportunity to meet loads of people doing what you’re doing in the area! They might have tried an approach you’re working on and will have advice on what worked and what didn’t, taking away some of the trial and error for you. You’ll also get the chance to meet tons of suppliers face to face, creating useful business connections - you may just meet the SEO executive who could transform your business! Don’t miss this opportunity to troubleshoot your ideas with people in the know.
