part of the services I offer, I do training (specifically for sales and role plays in relations to it). I already did it for some companies but decided to provide also this service online. However I do struggle to get people to know about it and built a community around it. Any advice?

If you were interested in sales training/coaching/roles plays, how would you liked to be approached or hear about it?

I'm getting to know more and more about digital marketing, I'm still to a certain extent old fashion person as I do all face to face.

Thanks for your help and input

Building communities through social media helps you stay in connect with a large number of people who would be your customers. More importantly communites certainly a great knowledge sharing platform.

Chiraz, I took a peek at your website and can see your challenge. You play in a crowded area so I think the key would be to focus on a specific group (geography, industry, size firm). Of course you want to make a lot of noise so your audience knows you exist (interview a well known person, write about current events, write a blog, video, column, etc). The trick is really to have website visitor come back. I think you might be able to create a "sticky aspect" by providing some sales tools (templates) for free.

thanks @Joost.

how would you recommend going about promoting and giving some free tips?

thanks for insights, I'm trying to get the company known more and more.

I've worked mostly on building network around now trying to build it online.
