Where will TMG be December 2017?

For anyone who doesn’t know, The Marketing Geeks are HUGE believers in face to face networking, so we get out and about and try to meet as many people as possible during the working week.

Lots of the events are free or cost the same as a cup of coffee or tea, and the connections you can make can be invaluable!

December is a crazy busy month so we’ll be calming down on the networking scene until the new year when we launch our own event in Dundee

So, if you would like to come along to any and either meet us there or arrange a one-2-one before or after the events we’d love to meet you!

Below are the events we will be attending this December (and their links to the tickets if you need to book!)

Our all inclusive social media package

Since this is one of the busiest times of year and we all have important things to worry about, like present buying, wondering if we’re on Santa’s naughty or nice list, and what to wear to the Christmas parties, social media can be left out in the cold.

This Christmas, why not let TMG manage your social media accounts for you?

Our team can run any number of accounts leaving you plenty time to sit back, relax and get on with enjoying your festivities! You deserve it!

To get in touch, email the team at contactus@themarketinggeeks.co.uk

Traditional Marketing

Back in the dark ages before Social media and online influence was so monumental, there was what is now lovingly referred to as “Traditional Marketing”

While there is an assumption that everything is now online, traditional marketing is still very much alive and thriving and many are still relevant to a number of industries and professions, creating a more personalized approach.

So lets have a look at your current marketing strategy and see if there are some traditional methods that could make you stand out from the crowd

Email Marketing

Email marketing is now easier than ever given to the rise of incredibly easy to use programs such as mailchimp and Aweber (as well as lots of new ones that are starting up) and its one of the best and most effective ways to keep in touch with your customers and to keep them up to date with your company news, promotions and offers.

If you have a large database (or even a small one) that you would like to communicate with more, TMG can put together an email marketing strategy that will help you stay right in the forefront of your customers minds.
