Keen to expand its customer base and develop brand awareness, excellence IT attended a Superfast Business Wales business marketing workshop. They later received a follow-up one to one session with a digital business advisor, who helped the company create a digital plan to grow the business through online marketing.
Anne Beer, operations director at excellence IT explained:
“Digital technology is integral to every element of our business. We knew we needed to develop a marketing strategy to drive potential customers to our website and ultimately, our services.
“The Superfast Business Wales digital marketing workshop gave our company a “focus” for our digital marketing strategy. As we didn’t have in-house marketing staff, we needed to establish a direction for our marketing ideas and understand exactly what tools were available and how to use them to enhance our business presence in the sector.”
