Paid Digital Advertising gives business owners an amazing opportunity to reach both new and existing customers whilst they are actively online. These consumer activities might include: Searching on Google or Microsoft Bing, Scrolling through their Facebook feed, Looking through Instagram stories and discovery feeds for inspiration or using LinkedIn for professional networking and prospecting. 

Paid Digital Advertising gives business owners the chance to gain new customers at the precise moment someone is looking for your product or services.

Adults in the UK spend, on average, between 3 hours 30 minutes to 4 hours 2 minutes per day online, with over 50% of this time spent on Social Media activities. Whilst there are billions of searches every day across Google & Bing.  

This provides huge opportunities for businesses to reach people who could be interested in their products or services at the exact time they are looking. 

But every paid digital channel might not be relevant, and the online workshop will look at how B2B and B2C advertising is different across these platforms, and how each could relate to your business.
