Being 'found' on the internet is rarely pure happenstance. It is likely that a person is looking for something specific (content) and undertakes a unique digital journey to find it. Creating content that enables you to engage with your target audience in a meaningful way is a key element of any modern digital marketing strategy. Storytelling, testimonials, partnerships, blogs and guest writers are all part of the content creation plan implemented by Ireland Reaching Out in recent years. This webinar will include information about developing the plan, creating the content, and promoting it online.

About the Presenter: Laura Colleran is the Programme Manager with Ireland Reaching Out, an Irish Diaspora engagement programme, funded by the Department of Foreign Affairs and the Heritage Council of Ireland. A previous member of the Irish Diaspora herself, she moved back to Ireland in 2013, having lived and worked in Italy for 11 years. Her professional background is in advertising and marketing, and she has worked with Ogilvy & Mather, Leo Burnett and Coca-Cola. She has also lectured marketing and brand management at the Institute of European Design in Turin.
