Brand Candy is owned and run by Richard Burgess and Janet Hancock. Amongst running the digital strategies of their clients, they have been up-skilling business owners and their teams on all things digital marketing since 2014. Their courses were borne out of a need for business owners to have a better understanding of how the online space could be better utilised in marketing their brands. It all started with the “Social Media for Business” short course, and with it’s crazy popularity, and constant requests, the “WordPress 101” and “Content Marketing for Irresistible Communication” courses are now also offered. In 2018, Brand Candy will be launching an advanced, targeted Facebook advertising course and a Search Engine Optimisation course for those with more in-depth needs.
The current courses are run on a monthly basis, and with an expanding customer base, Richard and Janet will be taking these training workshops to Cape Town in November this year, and to Johannesburg from March 2018.
The current offering of training courses are pitched to a small to medium-sized business audience, where the key decision makers have identified the need for their brands to be present in the online space. The comprehensive courses are four hours each, and cover the basics for getting started with managing a business’ online and social reputations.
Both courses are available in Cape Town next week, with limited seats – a maximum of six people per workshop. On Thursday will be “WordPress 101”, facilitated by Richard, and Friday “Social Media for Business” facilitated by Janet.
The cost of each of the courses is R1540 per delegate (incl VAT) and includes coffee in the morning and lunch in the afternoon. They start at 9am sharp and finish at 1pm, and will be held at the luxe offices of PR Lab and Kayser Baird in Black River Park, Observatory.
