SMC Digital Talk Forum 2020

While the coronavirus pandemic has already had a significant impact on the business community and the economy, businesses still have plenty of opportunities to be there for customers & prospects throughout this challenging time.

We know that all traditional distribution channels have been affected due to the COVID-19 situation, and we believe that digital distribution channels and remote operations is the only solution for turning out to be the way forward.

Therefore, Social Media Club is pleased to invite you to join us for a Digital Talk Forum on May 15, 2020, where we will bring in the experts to discuss how to drive digital customers onboarding, planning the next move, and revisiting online marketing strategies in response to the crisis.
