The fundamental principles of effective marketing remain the same but social media and the online world has changed the marketing landscape. This workshop is aimed at farm park owners and staff who have responsibility for marketing their farm park but are not marketers themselves.

NFAN Workshops are aimed at Farm Park owners and key staff. Each workshop doubles as a mini open day with a presentation from the host venue and a behind the scenes tour. Numbers are limited to ensure a successful workshop with time to ask questions.

Tea & Coffee will be served from 9.30am, the workshop will start at 10am and is due to finish at 3.30pm. Lunch is provided.

The principals of knowing your market, understanding your visitors and finding what makes your attraction special are still at the heart of effective marketing. This workshop will cover marketing principals and a review of different communications channels, before focusing in on the most widely used social media channel for attractions – Facebook.

You are probably already using Facebook but feel you could do more. The aim is to provide some enhanced practical skills, but it is not an advanced Facebook marketing workshop. The workshop is aimed at attraction owners and staff where marketing is just part of your role.

There will a presentation from Farmer Copleys and the opportunity for delegates to share their own experiences, what has worked for you and what hasn’t.
