Here at Mondo, community is a big deal to us. And since we eat, sleep, and breathe digital, we figured out one of the best ways we can fulfill our mission statement and give back to our beloved hometown of Brattleboro — by sharing our digital insights, passions, and perhaps a pun or two in a series of digital marketing workshops.
For small businesses looking to optimize their marketing efforts and boost their online strategy this year, The Modern Digital Marketer’s Toolkit series will cover everything you’ve ever pondered about the wonderful world of digital. We’ll be covering the fundamentals of social media, email marketing, video, search engine optimization (SEO), so on and so forth.
These workshops will take place on the third Wednesday of every month at 4:30 p.m., here at our office (74 Cotton Mill Hill, Brattleboro, VT). There’s a $10 entry fee for each workshop.
Incentive alert: If you attend all of the first six workshops, you’ll officially be unofficially certified in Digital Marketing Essentials. Attending the more technical presentations in the second half of the year can earn you an Advanced certificate. After all, knowledge is pretty cool, but you can’t hang it on your wall.
