The second series of three webinars, scheduled to begin on 26 May, will cover key elements and insights for a successful on-line marketing business.

While relevant for all producers, these webinars are designed for those who have had to adapt their sales models due to the collapse of food service and farmers markets around the country during the COVID-19 shutdown.

The webinars will be presented by Lauren Hamilton from Digital Narrative, whose presentation and workshop on digital marketing at 2019 National Conference were among many delegates’ event highlights. Particular note was made of Lauren’s interactive workshop format, and her ability to ‘translate’ the more technical elements of IT into easily understood ‘grower speak’.

Lauren will cover a range of topics and marketing areas over the three-part series, with the schedule as follows:
