Digital Marketing Strategy Training for Charities 2023

Free digital marketing training for charities

Do you want the opportunity to build your digital marketing knowledge and learn from an industry leading expert? We are offering you the opportunity to improve your digital marketing skills, for free. 

In recent years it has become even more important to develop and implement long-term digital marketing strategies to continue to grow and engage stakeholders online as well as future-proof your charity.

This year, we are offering 260 charities in London and select regional areas of the UK the chance to apply for free in- person and online Digital Marketing Training.

We are offering:

  • 4 full day in-person training sessions in London which will target charities by size: micro, small, medium and large organisations 
  • 4 online training sessions, split into 2 half days each, offered to charities based in Aberdeen and the surrounding areas, Newcastle and the surrounding areas, Northern Ireland and Wales

On top of the training, we will provide follow up support including online surgeries focused on key digital marketing topics, e.g. SEO and Analytics, and Drop-in Clinics led by industry experts, to ensure you not only learn new digital marketing skills but are supported in implementing them and get expert coaching and feedback.  

Once again, thanks to support from the Marketing Trust we’re offering you the chance to apply for a free place on an expert-led digital marketing course to help your organisation communicate more effectively online.  

I feel so much more confident in my ability and capacity in digital marketing, I have a drive to use the tools and strategies to put together a strategy for our charity that doesn't rely on ad hoc posting by lots of different people!
