FSB Members Training in Coventry

Online Lead Generation for SMEs

Get to grips with generating interest, capturing leads and sealing the deal.

Bridging the gap between current use of digital technology and the dynamic pace of digital change is a challenge for many SME businesses.

The solution? Perfecting the ability to use digital channels to support customer acquisition, customer engagement and maximise the efficiency and effectiveness of sales and marketing efforts now and in the future.

Together, we will develop a realistic, achievable lead generation plan for your business. This will help you to focus your limited resources on the things that will work for you. We’ll talk about tactics like email, social and SEO. We'll even send you away with ideas and resources to develop these channels (and others) further, but only once you’ve chosen the right tactics for the right audiences based on your own clear and achievable plan.
