Session Description – Get Your Marketing On Course

Feel your marketing, positioning, branding, etc. is not quite right? Wish it could be better? Want to someday soon find others who can do it instead of you?

“Get Your Marketing On Course” is for those business owners with limited marketing experience who need something that makes dollars and sense. If you hate marketing and sales, this may change your mind because it is all about how you create “an opportunity for a customer to buy”. Learn:
• How positioning and pricing interact
• How to get people to want to give you their hard-earned money
• How marketing for a small business is different from a big business
• The 4 questions you need to answer to make your marketing successful
• What is the Marketing Continuum and how to use it effectively to shorten your sales cycle
• The 3 characteristics of a successful ad
