Boom!  We’ve landed on Planet 2021 – how is everyone doing out there?  What a welcoming first week back at work it has been we must say.  Here at F&G we are back to the business of engineering marketing funnels for growth whilst having a right old rollicking time homeschooling and arguing over who is hogging the bandwidth.  Corporate life at its finest.

Riding into 2021 like....

We have five things up our sleeve this January to help you focus your marketing efforts: three events and some expert insight. An online workshop in partnership with Huddle where we are looking at the first building block of marketing strategy – Purpose!  We have not one but two events in the diary supporting Devon based businesses – the first one virtual and the second one face to face (fingers crossed).  And finally, some great pointers on what to include in your next marketing report and the answer to a tongue twister…does it pay to play paid in your digital marketing strategy for start ups.

ONE: Calling Devon’s entrepreneurs and business owners - a free online business growth workshop 19.01.21
