How Reverse Marketing will work for you (and why it works for us)

Alex Wren from Bitpod will share his ideas and experiences with Reverse Marketing. If you don’t like cold calling, sending promotional mailers or spending money on advertising, then this could be just what you need to market your business in 2015!
Reverse Marketing focuses on the customer journey, Bitpod are big fans of this technique and can claim numerous successes, some with brands that you might of heard of (such as Baxters, NHS, Pasta King & Calendar Club) and some other equally excellent local businesses.
In this seminar, Alex will share his toolbox of techniques to help your potential customers discover the benefits of your product or service. Naturally video marketing methods will be covered, however this seminar is about the overall strategy and how to make everything work together from social media to your CRM to your website and more. Bitpod promise you will walk away with some great new ideas to try and your very own Reverse Marketing action plan.

Alex heads the Bitpod team and coordinates all projects. He is highly experienced in digital marketing and advises clients on marketing strategy.  Bitpod’s customer portfolio is here

That’s just the seminar!  Coffee and networking from 10am and seminar starts at 10.30am(optional,always rewarding, included in the price and a great networking opportunity!)

What follows will only offer more creative opportunities for you and your business….


THE networking lunch – a proven way of growing and building your network

Pre lunch drinks and informal networking from 11.45am. Sit down for 2 course lunch with coffee at 12.30pm.

You sit down for 2 course served lunch (bread rolls, main course and dessert with coffee), no buffet here – conversation – not queuing is key!  

You will sit on a table with 7 or 8 other decision makers – none of whom do what you do – a table host will ensure that each person gets 3 minutes to introduce themselves and their business and the benefits that it brings to others.   A great catalyst for questions that lead to the all important conversations that generate the connections and collaborations – sharing knowledge, advice, tips, expertise in a relaxed and comfortable environment.  No sin bin in operation – just a donation to the Exeter Business Network charities if your mobile device is heard!

From 1.30pm – table to table networking. Your opportunity to go and talk to someone else in the room (the seating plan in your event programme will help you locate them), continue your conversation or start a new one with someone else on your table. As a member at subsequent events you will be sat with different people – unique to Business Network events!

The event finishes at 2pm – all you need to do is follow up!
