CVS Marketing Network - NEW FOR 2020!

Are you involved or responsible for marketing and promoting the activities, events or campaigns that your organisation runs? This network will provide an opportunity for you to gain new skills or develop existing ones, link in with others doing similar things to you and develop a support network for your marketing and comms.

One of the things we aim to do is to work together on joint campaigns. We know our reach and voice are stronger if we work together. If are you planning a campaign, why don’t we coordinate it together through the network and reach a larger audience?

The CVS Marketing Network will also provide expert support guidance and advice on the tools and assets commonly used to create robust marketing exercises. This includes graphic design, social media, google ads and listing tools, digital communications across websites and mailings, video production including live streaming, branding and managing your organisation's visual identity, campaign planning and execution.

Next Marketing Network: Date to be confirmed

Connect with the community

Fill out the linked webform and join this network's mailing list, be kept up to date on all the goings-on around the network including dates and agendas for upcoming meetings.

In support of the CVS Marketing Network and the local sector, we have comprised a bank of resources you can utilise in your marketing initiatives. Marketing is not an academic field, it's considered more of an art form as what might work today might not tomorrow or what might work for you won't necessarily work for another. It's important to keep up to speed on best practice and the currently effective ways to promote your organisation, join the CVS Marketing Network and discover how you might take full advantage of these resources and the wider knowledge offered by other network members.
