Wine Marketing Seminar in NSW and NZ – How to use Social Media and Wine Apps to Sell More Wine

14 September 2012, 1pm – 4.30pm. NMIT, Blenheim, New Zealand.
21 September 2012, 1pm – 4.30pm. Kurri Kurri, Hunter Valley, NSW, Australia.

Social media has become a powerful way of successfully marketing wine.

There are over 300 million social conversations about wine from over 10 million social wine consumers*. Yet many wineries are struggling to leverage this new world of marketing. This seminar shows you how to get on top of this burgeoning promotional channel.

Apple sold more iPads than any other PC company sold computers! Yet the wine website often remains as the only digital shopfront of wineries and wine retailers. A website can be unusable on an iPad/iPhone due to flash or bizarre small type, and can’t take advantage of the touch and multimedia elements that are so special in the iPad experience. This seminar shows you how your tasting room, sales reps, distribution partners and customer advocates can use an iPad app to your business advantage.

The seminar How to use Social Media and Wine Apps to Sell More Wine shows you how to sell more wine by:
– finding out what your customers are saying about your winery and competing wineries
engaging those customers in a fruitful online conversation
measuring success through social media objectives and metrics
creating a Facebook Page that not only engages but sells through social commerce
– building effective wine apps for iPads for building loyalty with customers as well as selling more wine in the tasting room

All using software that is either free or low cost based around the industry internet database Wine Directory.

Who should Attend?

This seminar is for small and medium sized winery sales, marketing and tasting room staff. No computer skills are needed other than the ability to browse the internet.

Actionable and Practical

When you’ve completed this seminar you should have a plan and software to action that plan. The seminar is practical and fast paced with emphasis on showing you what to do rather than marketing theories.
