A very large part of our marketing strategy is attending networking events and exhibitions. For a business such as ours, we find it one of the most effective method of marketing ourselves and being able to talk to people and explain what we do, and how we are different from most other businesses that offer 'websites'.
Our final big networking expo this year was the Sterling Networks expo which took place on the 18th November at Sixways Stadium in Worcester. A great venue, which being just off the M5 means its very easy to get to.
Sterling start their breakfast with their 'Big Breakfast', which was very well attended and gave everyone 60 second to explain to the table what they did, with the added twist of then switching tables and then giving a completely different group of people your 60 second pitch. The amazing Rory and Lizzy of M-Studios hosted the event and did an amazing job of keeping the energy levels high, a tall order considering it all started at 6am.
After the breakfast, the expo started and due the fact that everyone who was in the Big Breakfast had to walk through the expo to leave, meant it was very busy right from the start.
It was a fantastic event which give us chance to catch up with friends and contacts, as well as have a chat with those who are looking for solutions to their website worries or business inefficiencies. Full credit goes to the Sterling team for putting on such a great show, and we will be back.
Look out for future expo dates, and we look forward to seeing everyone again next year.
