Effective marketing and communications – FREE WEBINAR
If you missed the most recent webinar in the ‘Future of Sailing’ series, don’t worry all four webinars are now available to watch back on the RYA website.
The ‘Future of Sailing’ webinar series address current trends affecting boating and watersports. Aimed at clubs, class associations and anyone who has an interest in the future of sailing, the thought-provoking sessions feature key findings from the Futures Project, commissioned by British Marine.
The fourth webinar in the series was broadcast at the beginning of February and focusses on effective marketing and communications. Whether it’s the use of traditional forms of marketing (leaflet drops, events or open days) or better use of social media, web presence or the use of apps to co-ordinate beginner and other sailing activity. Hosted by Matt Sheahan, respected sailing journalist, the webinar featured a series of short presentations and a Q&A session with clubs that have successfully used marketing and communications to boost activity and membership.
