Inhouse management training courses

We are often asked to customise content for our inhouse training courses. This can be from tailoring course content and case studies to writing a course from scratch. We also deliver our standard courses without alteration for a fixed and transparent investment.

I’ve just finished a blog on this pricing approach on the trainingzone website.

Recently submitted thoughts on an article I discovered in Forbes magazine.

The article shares how Dell are making social media the cornerstone of customer engagement and have invested in developing the skills of over 3,000 of their employees to implement this strategy.

I was struck by the size of this investment and the step change in how major companies see the future of customer service.

In house Customer Service Training

Potentially, a range of in-house training courses could help businesses meet their own customer service strategies.

Further thoughts on this at my blog over at trainingzone

Not everyone can afford training and coaching. And every business is not suited to the level of Google SEO courses which we offer.

Small Business Marketing

Small, local businesses, in particular, face a choice about where to invest their profits. However, for these types of businesses they can do much themselves to benefit from knowledge of SEO techniques.

I’ve just written an article sharing the 9 most important factors in attracting more local customers online.

The article takes the reader through the gift of free Google+ Local pages and how to get the most from these.

If you own or run a local business and wish to attract those local customers searching for your service in your town or city then the tips offered maybe of help.

You don’t even have to do the work yourself – why not ask a keen employee to take responsibility for growing your online following?

Pinterest for Business

We’ve recently been experimenting with use of the new Pinterest for Business accounts. If you haven’t yet claimed your username you can do it here.

I’ve recently added a blog post about this over at trainingzone. Trainingzone is a website for the community of training managers.

Pinterest is a highly viral, highly visual and highly valuable social media network.

Like many of these applications, they begin in their infancy as free and social applications and then search for revenue streams to make the platform sustainable.

The great appeal to marketers is both the brand potential and the link building potential.

We’re experimenting how this could work best for businesses and will be keen to include our findings in our  marketing courses.

Facebook Fan Pages

We have been exploring the world of SEO via Facebook for our in-house social media marketing courses.

Personally, I have added an article you may find interesting on the 7 top tips for Facebook SEO on my blog over at http://www.carlduncker.com/marketing-consultant/optimizing-your-facebook-fan-page-7-key-points/

We’ve applied the steps I recommend in my article to the traininaday facebook fan page at https://www.facebook.com/traininaday

Specifically, we’ve put more emphasis on the in-house training courses as keywords at the front of the About, Description and Mission sections.

Digital Marketing Courses: Future Launch

Digital marketing spend now stands at £31bn. That is money spent by agencies on digital advertisements, content marketing and digital campaigns. As a fast-growing industry, knowledge of best-practice techniques is lagging behind the financial investment that is being thrown at digital marketing. In fact, the term digital marketing is quickly becoming a synonym for marketing with traditional marketing becoming the forgotten cousin.

digital marketing training image
digital marketing training

In response to customer demand I am writing a number of digital marketing courses for delivery this Spring that cover the fundamental aspects which marketing professionals need to follow if they are to ensure the ROI on their investment. These are in addition to our conventional marketing courses.

Just like SEO in the 90’s, there are a lot of myths and too much learning by doing by marketing professionals who continue to spend heavily. This can lead to wasted resources and a lack of credibility amongst their peers. Like all investments, digital marketing spend needs to demonstrate a return on investment for the business.

With the amount of free and useful resources available by Google, Facebook and other platforms there is no lack of knowledge available to digital marketers. And this fast-moving profession has no excuses to follow best-practice.  With the amount of testing and analytical data available proven techniques have been established by innovators and early adopters that the vast majority of digital marketing professionals can learn from.

When constructing this niche portfolio of courses I have mindful of both customer need and consultancy experience to prioritise the courses on offer.

Digital Marketing Training

With this in mind I am pleased to share that the upcoming digital courses will cover:

SEO Strategy: Ranking in a post-Panda and Penguin world

Content Marketing Strategy: Authorship, Leadership and Engagement

Social Media Strategy: Content, Engagement and Influence

Digital PR Strategy: PR beyond Press Releases

Each of these digital marketing courses will offer a roadmap for best-practice in strategy and implementation. Like all of our courses they will deliver value for money and learning with a engaging and interactive style that be delivered to your teams.

Marketing Training at Train in a Day

Traininaday have been delivering marketing training since 2004. With a team of highly-reputed facilitators, our training courses are utilised by private and public sector alike.

These 1-day digital marketing training courses will be delivered by myself, Carl Duncker, ranking #1 for Digital Marketing Consultant by Google, CEO of traininaday and 20 years marketing management experience.

I look forward to meeting clients and marketing teams looking to improve their digital marketing campaigns with these courses.

Which Marketing Courses?

Selecting the right marketing courses can be a daunting task. A quick search on Google brings back 322,000,000 results alone. Where do you start?

All good marketing courses will provide you with a sound grounding in one or more marketing techniques. So your decision will be based more on the method of delivery than anything else.

So with that in mind, here is a brief description of the types of marketing courses you can apply and enrol for:

Free Marketing Courses

O.K. where is the catch? actually there may not be one. There are some excellent training courses available by renowned

google search for marketing courses
marketing courses

universities on Coursera.org. Coursera was set up by a small number of US university Professors who wanted to experiment with delivering their courses online. The site has been a great success with other non-US universities joining and many thousands of students enrolling on each course. However, there are as yet no marketing courses available.

So that leaves standard marketing training being offered for free. Be careful – often you will receive only a fraction of a course and will be expected to pay for further content. So the saying “no such thing as a free lunch” hold true here.

Online Marketing Courses

That is courses on marketing that are delivered online. Not courses on online marketing, known as digital marketing. See the difference?

Online courses are a great way of gaining knowledge about a subject without having to attend classroom training. No travel, no time restrictions, cheaper cost. There are certainly a great number of things in favour of online marketing courses.  The only downside is that people learn best when in groups. The ability to interact and gain understanding from others experiences is one of the hallmarks of learning. There is of course blended learning – that is a mixture of classroom training and online courses.

Part-time Marketing Courses

Most professional marketing qualifications are delivered part-time with a focus on either evening or weekend delivery. This allows the marketing professional to continue their vocation whilst learning a new marketing skill. The Chartered Institute of Marketing traditionally offer part-time marketing courses to thousands of students across the globe. They are not cheap but you do receive an accredited qualification once you complete the course and pass the examinations.

University Marketing Courses

Of course, you can go to university to study marketing – that’s what I did. Marketing is a useful function for anyone going into business. From my own experience, a marketing degree is useful as it gives you some very important fundamentals. However, I learnt the most important aspects of my marketing knowledge when I was working and when completing my professional marketing qualifications.

If any of the above learning formats are of interest to you then there are highlighted below some options regarding marketing courses for you:

University Marketing Courses – try University of Abertay Dundee. Dundee Business School offer a variety of marketing training courses on consumers and brands.

Online Marketing Courses – you could try the Online Marketing College. They deliver a good range of online marketing courses on everything from Google SEO to mobile website design.

Part-time Marketing Courses – look no further than the Chartered Institute of Marketing. They have been delivering part-time professional marketing qualifications since the beginning of time – or almost.

So there you have it, a wide range of marketing courses are available to anyone in a variety of suitable formats depending on your individual circumstances.

Video Training Courses: Press Release

Leading training company launches free video training courses

Successful training managers know that learners quickly forget what they have learned if it is not repeated and reinforced. To help combat this, traininaday today delivers its vast video training library free of charge to all clients purchasing an in-house training course.

One of the great challenges for any learning and development program is to try to ensure that the learning is retained. This can be done in a number of ways from coaching, to quizzes and e-mail follow-up, shared social media resources and conference calls.

However, many of these follow-up techniques rely on a third party. With video training, however, learners have the benefit of access to key learning materials at a time that is convenient to them.

Video training is now available for management training programs including, but not limited to, assertiveness and self-confidence, meeting management, management essentials, communication skills, and how to motivate employees. All video courses cover the fundamentals of each topic with narrated tutorials and several hours of learning per subject. These are available in formats accessible on both desktops and mobile devices.

Furthermore, these training videos are provided free of charge to companies who hire a traininaday trainer to deliver an in-house training course.

Carl Duncker of Train in a Day says “Hiring an external trainer to deliver your training day is a not an insignificant investment and encouraging the retention of learning is rightly important. By offering these video course materials to our clients we are improving the effectiveness of their training whilst at the same time increasing the return on investment of their training budget”

Training managers who’d like to know more can view the full range of management training courses available and how to access the free video training at traininaday.

Leadership Training Videos Launched

It has long been known by learning and development professionals that for training interventions to succeed they must be supported by post-learning repetition and application. As part of its commitment to the learning and development commitment,  traininaday has launched its portfolio of video leadership courses free of charge to its in-house training customers.

Traininaday has listened to feedback from training managers and future leaders alike who want more than a one day training course. They want continued support as they implement new techniques and sharpen their leadership skills. However, coaching and one-to-one support is only available to those with large training budgets and so the challenge is find a solution which is attractive and yet which is cost-effective to most training departments.

Leadership Skills Portfolio

Follow-up video training offers that solution. Leadership training videos are now available as traininaday expand their growing management

development training library. Core course include leadership skills, coaching and mentoring, negotiating skills, and teamwork training.  Available on both mobile and desktop devices, the course videos act as an easily accessible resource for learners following a leadership training day.

Importantly, these training videos are provided free of charge when a company hires an external trainer making in-house training accessible to those with even modest training resources.

Improved Return on Investment

Carl Duncker of traininaday comments “Training Managers are under increasing pressure to demonstrate the return on investment from their training spend. By ditributing these leadership training videos to learners not only are training interventions more effective but learning professionals have a stronger business case for going forward.”

Learning and development professionals can find further details including the full portfolio of leadership development titles at traininaday.
