Most B2B brands now understand the importance of hosting a professional community that delivers value for members – even if done in a relatively informal manner. Your customers, advocates and wider network of connections are more likely to engage with and find value in your product if you can offer them peer-to-peer networking to help them solve problems and make the most of opportunities.

This masterclass shares MPG’s methodology for creating, growing, nurturing and serving a B2B community with smart and sustainable marketing practices.

As a masterclass participant, you will learn how to:

  • Define your brand community: map the ecosystem and community your brand serves
  • Know the purpose of your brand and products: develop clear ‘why’ for your community to engage with your brand and your products
  • Create your value pyramid: understand how your audience engages with your brand, developing stronger commitment – and monetisation opportunities – over time
  • Scale with a robust brand marketing strategy: incorporating – situational analysis, objectives, marcomms strategy and campaign plan, operational plan, investment plan and ROI measurement plan.

6 ways MPG Academy delivers an enhanced learning experience:

  1. Your team of trainers will be practising marketers with specialist expertise and extensive, international experience in all aspects of the marketing focused on B2B events to acquire delegates and sponsors, subscriber acquisition and membership acquisition. You will gain knowledge and skills that are very practical and based on highly current, real-world experience.
  2. With a maximum of 8 attendees per masterclass, you get access to an intimate, supportive learning environment, encouraging valuable discussion and a personalised learning experience.
  3. We will ask you to complete a questionnaire ahead of the course – so your trainers can gain a good understanding of your key learning objectives and current level of knowledge in each area to be covered in the course (you can of course complete this questionnaire on a voluntary basis)
  4. You will receive a comprehensive training resources pack before the course, and then an updated resources pack after the course incorporating participants’ contributions and the on-demand video. This allow you to review materials ahead of the course and revisit valuable resources at any time after the course.
  5. You will have access to MPG Tribe – an exclusive, online community for MPG Academy participants to continue your learning by interacting with your peers and gaining further, detailed and practical insights into how other organisations and marketers are tackling challenges and opportunities similar to your own. This is a unique networking opportunity to make strong connections with relevant individuals that you will find valuable for many years to come.
  6. For GURU participants only: access to a 1.5 hour personalised Q&A call after your course with MPG’s experts in marketing strategy, marketing execution and digital marketing – giving you in-depth, even more personalised support to boost your knowledge and confidence, and also to a private forum in which to discuss confidential challenges and opportunities.
