OUR BIG PROGRAMME OF EVENTS, NETWORKING AND MASTERCLASSES IN OCTOBER 2020

DBN MARKETING MASTERMIND HOUR WITH PAUL SPARKS

DATE & TIME OF THIS WEBINAR FOR DBN MEMBERS ONLY: Monday, 16th November - 10 a.m. - 11 a.m.

How to reach international customers.

In this Marketing Hour, Paul Sparks will give a practical overview of how to sell your products and services to global buyers, including how to select the best routes to market.  This might be through direct selling, using agents and distributors or through online marketplaces such as Amazon.

With lots of businesses now working virtually due to Covid19 we are finding this is breaking down geographical barriers, this overview will look at whether gaining international clients is the right thing for your business.

Please here to reserve your place.  Your Zoom link will be sent out on Friday, 13th November.  This event is only open to DBN members.  Not a member?  Join here.

A BIG THANK YOU TO OUR MEMBERS & FRIENDS WHO CAME ALONG TO TONY'S AFTER DARK EXPERIENCE!

CAN YOU GIVE YOUR CUSTOMERS A BETTER ONLINE EXPERIENCE?

Introducing a new service for DBN members

How easy is it for your customers to find the products and services they are looking for and how easy is it for them to buy from you?

Here's how it works.  We invite a couple of our members to meet with you online to chat about what you want your website and social media to do for your business.  Over a few days they will visit your website and media pages as "shoppers" and then give you constructive feedback about what works and what could be even better.  We have a checklist of things to look for so it is consistent no matter who carries it out.

Please let us know if you would like us to check out your website or the social media pages you sell from and we'll set up an online meeting between you and your two "shoppers" so you can chat about what you need from your customer experience healthcheck.  Drop us an email at connect@dobusinessnetwork.com.

And if you volunteer to give feedback to one of our members, you get a gift sourced from a fellow DBN member as a thank you!  Another win-win.

WHAT DOES YOUR FUTURE BUSINESS LOOK LIKE?

Book a 1-1 confidential Zoom meeting with DBN and let's get planning!

We're here to help you to "get your head around" where your business is going.  Simply drop us a line at connect@dobusinessnetwork.com to book your meeting with us on Zoom and we will take you through some future business planning and help to create an action plan for your business.  It's completely confidential.  And if you need extra support with a specific issue, we'll put you in touch with other DBN members for expert advice.
