DIGITAL MARKETING & MEDIA WORKSHOPS ACROSS BROAD AND TARGETED ASPECTS OF digital marketing including social media, content marketing, seo and more


Continuing our partnership with the Victorian government of 7 years, digitalbrief is pleased to announce the 2021 workshop series below. The workshops catering to a broad audience within communication departments across Victorian Government, the workshops are designed in two main sections.

Our Essentials workshops (#1) is a broad, strategic workshop covering many areas of digital marketing & media. Over the years, this workshop has run in various forms with Victorian Government including 2019/20 joint venture with Mumbrella, and more recently CampaignAsia. The Essentials workshop spans 2 days back to back and is our most popular workshop. If you are newer to digital marketing please start with this workshop.

For 2021, we have developed deeper, targeted programs catering for those who want specific information & knowledge beyond time allocated within ‘Essentials’. These workshops are all one day in duration, and focus on a narrower number of topics, however this allows us to go much more in depth, combing both the strategy and skills of working in these areas. These workshops are #2 through #6 below. 

All workshops are designed based on participant feedback and in consultation with Department Of Premier and Cabinet.

I attended earlier programs with digitalbrief, are these workshops relevant for me?

Our “Essentials” workshop is regularly updated with new content, however if you have completed this in the past 2 years, we don’t recommend your attendance for the 2nd time. The one day, targeted workshops combine new content for 2021, and integrate the foundations learned in the ‘Essentials’ workshop. This year, targeted workshops include both digital strategy & hands-on skills based content.

How are the workshops conducted? What technology? What timings?

We use Zoom to conduct workshops. Days start at 9am to finish at 4:30pm with regular breaks

Is a workbook included? How will I get it?
Once payment is made, we will email you a PDF  1 week out from the workshop for you to print before the workshop. The workbook is approximately 100 pages. You will be able to get this done at a local Officeworks or print shop. If not, a notepad and pen will be sufficient.
I can’t make the dates, will you run this later in 2021?
At present, we have an agreement with DPC across the advertised dates only. 


Since undertaking the course, I’ve been working much closer with the in-house digital team on Facebook retargeting ads, improving our ability to track audiences online, ensuring components of SEO have been actioned and suggesting other ways to leverage our video content. I do feel more confident with the media agency – I ask a lot more from them now!

Post-workshops I’m feeling more confident talking all things digital with the agency. It was especially useful when I had to provide feedback for their post campaign report. 

The workshop was really great, I constantly refer back to the workbook. I’ve implemented learnings mainly in the paid area and trying to influence more in how to tackle our owned and earned channels to gain greater engagement and brand presence.
