WORKSHOP: How To Use Canva and Design Like a Pro

04th October 2022 | 10:00 - 13:00 WORKSHOP

Event description

You love your business, but without a consistent stream of leads it leaves you busy, overwhelmed and in a constant flux of feast and famine.

You know what you need to do to get yourself out there more but you don’t do it, because;

  • You think you need to be technical or creative.
  • Technology is overwhelming so you never get started.
  • You see others doing more but don’t want to ‘be like them’.
  • In order to set yourself up for success you need a few key things that anyone can do.

    Please note, this session will be on location. Please see below for address and further information.

    What will I learn?

    • The 4 key components of an effective marketing system.
    • How to create everything you need for free using Canva.
    • A step-by-step plan that will help you generate a lead a day.

    Who should attend?

    If you are a solo business or small business owner and you are looking for a simple but very effective way to generate leads, consistently - this is for you. You will leave with the knowledge and tools to build your marketing system in a day.
