This one-day workshop is based around a set of proven marketing principles, appropriately modified and adapted to take account of the special characteristics of the Internet. Participants discuss the application of these principles in their own organizations. Illustrative cases are used as examples of good and not so good practice.

This is a public course run in London by Aslib (The Association for Information Management), with emphasis on marketing information products and services. It will run in 2002 on 30 May. Register via the Aslib course description, or see Further Details below for other options.

Why and Who

The Internet reaches some 300 million world-wide, each a potential customer. But how can you compete for their attention in a cyberspace that's overwhelmed with a high volume of information, some good, but much mediocre - or worse? This workshop draws on the lessons of those who have succeeded, and those who have not. It is based around a set of proven principles and provides many practical examples of those who market via the Internet.
