Secret Agents appointed by county´s new Business Support Service

leave a comment »

The newly-formed Wiltshire Business Support Service has appointed Secret Agent Marketing to deliver its series of marketing training courses to start-ups and small businesses in Wiltshire.

Marketing for Beginners will explain how marketing is more than just newspaper ads and glossy brochures; and how marketing should be a business investment, not an expense.

Peter and Louisa Davison will help attendees to work out who their customers are, how to speak their language, and how to give them what they need.

Louisa said: “The workshop will be super-practical, and each delegate will leave with a basic realistic, workable marketing plan, while peer-to-peer learning will allow attendees to try out their ideas on other workshop delegates.”

Peter said: “We’re delighted to have been invited to join forces with Wiltshire Business Support Service. Together, we can offer the wealth of our experience and an incredibly low cost to small businesses and start-ups.”

This workshop will be held on Wednesday 30 May 2012, from 10am to 1pm at The Crown,19 New Park Street, Devizes, SN10 1EA. Attendance costs £25 for members of Wessex Chambers, and £40 for non-members.

Wiltshire Business Support Service exists to provide business owners with real, practical help and support.  Funded by Wiltshire Council, the service is the ultimate advice and networking resource for anyone starting up or running a small business. All advice is free, confidential and impartial.

Secrets of the public relations industry will be spilled next month as journalists and PR consultants Pete and Louisa Davison show Wiltshire business people how to get the media talking about them.

In February Pete and Louisa, who run Marlborough-based PR and marketing company Secret Agent Marketing, published a guide called How to Write a Press Release to help local business people gain media exposure.

The free guide was so popular that the pair have decided to offer their expertise as a day-long course, during which delegates will learn how to spot newsworthy stories within their organisations and produce press releases and photographs that journalists will want to use.
