ASPECTS 2: Library Marketing [TG1/MARKETING]


10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Event Type

This workshop is part of the cpd25 Aspects programme, aimed at library staff looking to acquire additional skills and knowledge or staff working towards Chartership.

This is a hands-on and interactive workshop which breaks library marketing down into manageable chunks, free of jargon and gimmicks. Above all the focus is on tying your library promotion together into effective marketing campaigns.

We’ll look at marketing strategically as a non-profit organisation, and then work on segmenting your audience and tailoring messages for each group. We’ll also look at how to distribute your messages via social media and other channels, before tying everything together in a strategic marketing plan. Delegates will get a template marketing campaign document to work on in the session and then take back to their own institutions to develop.

Everything in this training is designed to be applicable right away, whether you want to better communicate the value of a particular service, or to market your entire library.
