Upskill & Advance Yourself & Impress
Bring More Value To The People You Want To Help Most By Mastering Digital Marketing & Social Media
It’s no secret that the Public Sector is seriously lagging behind the Private Sector in terms of its digital marketing maturity. For a while, the gap was small enough not to make too much of an impact. However, in recent years, it's grown.
When COVID-19 surfaced and in-person support and events ground to a halt, it was made glaringly obvious. Maybe you’ve noticed it in your own workplace? Did you stuggle to communicate online effectively?
You are not alone. I work with hundreds of public sector pros every year and I help them step out outline confidently and competently. I break what you need down into small steps. So, it doesn’t matter if you’re not an expert. But if you are an advanced public sector marketer, I can take you to the next level.
Private Sector marketing is a master at what the Public Sector needs most:
A transparent, trusting connection with their audience and the ability to get an important message across with insightful action! But Public Sector digital marketing must be handled differently. Digital marketing training and strategy offered on the market is almost entirely geared for the Private Sector and concentrates on conversions as sales. In the Public Sector, conversions are NOT sales.
What You Are Trying To Win Is Public Trust!
So that citizens engage with you, believe you and understand the why of your policies. That’s why digital marketing for Public Sector must be handled differently and much more delicately. I understand the nuances of public policy, politics and online reputation.
So, even if your sector has the willingness and the funding to invest in upskilling and modernising its digital marketing, the problem has always been finding a specialised Public Sector digital marketing expert to help with strategy, training and implementation.
Today, you’ve found one in me! I want to help you step forward as a confident and competent Public Sector employee in digital communications, become a hero, and bridge the ever-growing gap by mastering digital marketing for your sector.
For You, That Means:
A brand new skill set to bring to your role / CV
Being the driving force behind a huge advancement in digital marketing within the Public Sector
The ability to effectively communicate and educate your team/organisation and your target audience
Increased chance of a promotion and/or career progression
