PushON recently hosted their first online marketing meetup in Manchester. Around 40 digital marketing enthusiasts attended, along with four exceptional speakers from various sectors within the industry, including agency professional and clients.
The North West, particularly Manchester, has turned up the volume in marketing of late with innovative marketing techniques and creations ensuring brands worldwide standout from the crowd whilst continuing to drive impressive revenue and site visits.
The meetups that we organise aim to bring the digital community together, whether its marketing related or focused around Magento.
We were fortunate to have fantastic online marketing agencies and client-side businesses volunteer their time to speak at the meetup. These included;

  • Ceri Francis from Music Magpie who spoke about measuring Facebook.
  • Denise Maskew from United Utilities who did an insightful talk on marketing from inside a corporate organisation, and how to support and understand the internal marketing teams.
  • Ben Wilkins from Regital, who spoke about the revolution of in out of home.
  • Gareth Hoyle from Marketing Signals who discussed how to drive new clicks to your physical bricks.

We can’t forget to mention Richard Gregory who was the compere for the evening and Run 2, for sponsoring the event.
