Wired Wessex, the organisation whose aim is to provide a support network for companies involved in new media and ICT, is hosting a two-part marketing workshop which will focus on two issues, online marketing and public relations for SMEs (small to medium enterprises).

The workshop, which is being held at Portsmouth Technopole on Tuesday 22 July will be split into two sessions allowing attendees the flexibility of attending all, or part of the day.

The first session will be led by Cheryl Rickman, founder and managing director of WebCritique, who will provide a complete overview on how to market a company on the Internet. During her session Cheryl will look at ways in which companies can improve existing websites through content, functionality, navigation and search engine readiness. In addition, Cheryl will discuss how to successfully launch an online marketing campaign through activities such as building customer relationships, e-mail marketing, and market intelligence.

In the afternoon, Alan Cleaver, editor of The Hampshire Chronicle, will take to the podium and guide delegates through the process of promoting a company via a public relations campaign. His current editorship and his many years in the newspaper business gives him a unique insight into art of gaining editorial comment, both on a local and national level.

Companies wishing to attend this event should register by visiting The cost of attending the full day (both sessions) is £45 and £30 for delegates wishing to attend either the morning or afternoon session, and £55 and £35 for those companies who do not subscribe to Wired Wessex. A networking lunch is included in both the full or part day charges.
