How to build a successful brand, how to stand out on social media and run an online shop? These were  among the questions answered during our 11 Tulostakomo trainings between 2018 and 2019, held with our highly competent collaborators.

Hundreds of active and budding entrepreneurs participated in the trainings. According to the post-event survey, the participants were very satisfied with the trainings. The trainings received a fine average rating, 4,5/5.

 

SOME and SEO became familiar last year

In 2018, Tulostakomo trainings were started with becoming acquainted with social media marketing and search engine optimisation (SEO). The participants were given practical tips and tools for supporting sales and marketing, and they learnt how to market and sell productively using data.

The collaborators in the trainings were Ville Olkkonen and Kalle Alanen from Haven Porvoo agency.

– It was a pleasure to see there is demand for digital marketing expertise. There were so many enrolments, that there was not enough room for everyone to participate, Alanen says.

– The participants came from all kinds of business fields, and they understood the content. Several of them started pondering how to implement their learnings in their own company.

During the autumn, Tulostakomo also co-operated with Katri Kilpeläinen from Toimisto Poks.
