COMPANIES wishing to find out just how they are doing with their online marketing can have a free health check with the Basingstoke Gazette later this month.

The news centre is holding two free digital seminars at the Apollo Hotel on October 23 aimed specifically at local businesses which would like to expand their digital knowledge and cut through the jargon.

The sessions will focus on specific topics to help you get the best out of your current marketing strategy.

Some experience in digital marketing is preferred.

Topics will include:

• Marketing landscape changes that impact the SME

• The very latest in mobile websites and Google updates

• Understanding the customer journey

• SEO and Adwords - The benefit of Longtail Keywords

All attendees will qualify for a free digital health check and the Gazette will have digital specialists on hand should you want to speak on a one-to-one basis.

Attendees are welcome to choose either the morning or afternoon session. Attendees should arrive either at 10.30am or 2.30pm for check-in and refreshments.
