#DIGIMAX – IEDC’s 2017 Fall Virtual Learning Series

Wednesdays; October 4 – November 8 | 2:30 – 4 pm ET

Promote your community's assets far beyond the reach of traditional EDO communications. Unlike 20th century marketing tools, EDOs now have the ability to reach important audiences directly and immediately with fresh information, from up-to-the-minute announcements about new facilities in the community to slick video tours of available properties. Perhaps the most valuable feature of digital marketing is that two-way communication allows you to build relationships, giving you access to better leads. This series will help you remain competitive in the global marketplace. Topics include:

• Not Your Average EDO Website - Best Practices in Web Design for 2018
• Digital Lead Generation - Five BIG Tips You Need to Know
• Win Google's Attention + Affection
