    Email Marketing - The one without an algorithm to beat

    Is email marketing dead? With a 3600% ROI, it’s definitely not, so let’s learn how to do it right!

    In this talk you’ll learn:
    - how to build your email list and what to send your subscribers
    - how to build a strong relationship you can monetize effectively
    - the structure of a sales campaign
    - behind the scenes - subject lines and emails that had a high conversion rate

    After 10 years in the software industry, Andreea jumped into entrepreneurship and built three successful businesses in the same number of years: a fitness blog monetised through affiliate marketing and a brand partnership with Adidas, an online Yoga studio, and a coaching practice. Andreea will share the marketing strategy that worked across the different niches and business models, and that fits perfectly with her introverted personality: email marketing.

    The four superpowers of video for business.

    The Spider-Man quote, “With great power comes great responsibility!” actually dates back to 4th Century BC so there’s more than a ring a of truth to it. Business owners feel this responsibility keenly. Combine that feeling with getting your business involved with video marketing, a medium that has the power to take your message farther and wider than any other, and many choose to avoid adding yet another weight to an already full plate. This talk will break down video into its 4 superpowers and give some ideas on how to use them to immediately boost your business.

    Morgan is an award-winning cinematographer, drone pilot and film producer.

    He started his video production company Morgisbord Media in 2017 with a focus on corporate and narrative films and the following year he established a highly successful wedding film company. He has also built a small yet versatile film studio in West Worthing.

  • Get Online Week: Get started with Instagram

    Online event

    As part of our #GetOnlineWeek series in partnership with CityFibre, the aim of this event is to give an insight into using Instagram and how to get started with it from a photographer's point of view.

    Learn from a once-upon-a-time social media newbie who was determined to get started on Instagram, the perfect platform for her as a creative living and working in Brighton.

    About 8 years ago, photographer and artist Moose Azim began using Instagram for her own personal use - mainly to share her photos on a new platform and discover new things. She quickly realised, alongside developing her various roles at Recovery College and East Side Print CIC, that Instagram can be a very effective way of engaging with audiences and raising awareness of the different projects she was spearheading.

    Moose will share her story of how she discovered the power of Instagram and her hints and tips to getting started and maintaining an engaging profile.

    - Raise your business profile
    - Reach your ideal customers

    This event is open to all.

    Speakers:

    Rebecca Kimber, CEO of Create.net
    How to make your digital business more sustainable

    In this talk Rebecca will share Create's journey over the last 12 months as they work to become a carbon-neutral company. How this mission has shifted to become a primary focus that influences company strategy and the decisions they make, and the action they've taken along the way to make this happen.

    The climate crisis is constantly in the news and on people's minds but it's sometimes hard to know how to start. Most digital businesses will have a smaller footprint than traditional industries so our sector have an opportunity to lead the way in Net Zero targets. It's easier than you think to take small actions that when done together with others can have a big impact.

    Rebecca Kimber is the CEO of Create.net a Brighton-based company that enables anyone to get online with their own website. Carbon neutral hosting, fast to use drag and drop website building tools, and no need for code or jargon have made it a popular choice with many thousands of small business owners since 2001.
