Really Accessible Marketing
13th February 2020 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm
— Reaching audiences with access needs
What is it about?
This webinar will help you audit your marketing materials so you can better reach and attract audiences with access needs. Some of your audience’s access needs may remain constant, while other access needs may change or develop during their lifetime. Are you thinking about everything you should be?
Kirsty will help make sure you’re equipped to consider a variety of access needs when marketing, both off and online. She will share quick and cost-effective ways to make your marketing materials accessible, and insight into how marketing — especially your copy and design — can speak to or alienate people. She will also help you plan and budget to improving access across all your marketing channels.
What will I gain?
— Learn how to identify the types of access needs you need to think about for your audiences
— Get practical and cost-effective ways to adapt your marketing materials to make them more accessible
— Create a strategy for improving access across all your marketing channels
Who is it for?
