According to the UK Business Digital Index by Lloyds Bank, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) with a high level of digital skills are more than a third more likely to report an increase in turnover in the past two years compared with those firms that are the least digitally able. Despite this, over a million small businesses lack basic digital skills.

If you want to find your way out of this digital skills gap, there's a Digital Marketing Show Workshop designed just for you and your business needs.

First up is "Building Communities and Brand Advocacy" with Dan Spicer, EMEA Community Lead at Hootsuite on the 4th August 2015. So, why should building advocacy should be your top priority for business growth? Dan suggests that "brand advocates are the not-so-secret weapon of many hot companies. They help the up-and-coming companies stand out among the many others in the field and help large corporates solidify their presence in the market".

Whether you want to develop a successful social media strategy, learn how to identify and engage with your top brand advocates, or understand best practice content marketing strategies to increase customer retention, we've got it covered.

Don't delay - with every day the digital skills gap is getting wider and businesses are being left further behind. Book now and save £100 off your ticket with our early bird offer!
