Alberta Women Entrepreneurs Performance Learning Series Workshops

Digitally Solid

Grow your business with digital marketing

Digitally Solid is a digital marketing program where women entrepreneurs get hands-on, learning how to use strategy and technology to build their business.

At the end of this program, you will have:

  • developed a digital marketing plan including refining target market, and creating strategies and tactics to achieve your business goals

  • scheduled a publishing/editorial calendar to help with consistency and accountability

  • written a content marketing strategy, including content ideas to implement immediately

  • optimized your website for user experience (UX) and search engine marketing (SEO)

  • refined your social media (Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn) for brand consistency and improved experience

  • built targeted digital advertising using Facebook, Instagram, Google ads

  • created an email strategy and know how to create drip campaigns

  • collected tools and apps to make digital marketing easier to manage and evaluate

Digitally Solid covered a wide breadth of material about getting my business information out to potential clients online. Jen was very approachable and created a very warm and welcoming learning environment. The information provided in this course has helped me be more effective with my marketing strategies. I also learned how to improve tactics that I can do myself, have a better understanding of the technical components, and now can confidently hire others to take on some of the work.
