Business-driven marketing program
Don't let your marketing drive your business; it's time for your business to drive your marketing. It's time for you to take control and not let social media dictate how you market your business!
So many small business owners find marketing their businesses frustrating, confusing and unrewarding. The reasons are quite simple; many marketing activities are created with large businesses in mind and tend to view and treat small businesses as if they are miniature large businesses which is far from the truth and creates unrealistic expectations. In addition, many small business owners never really planned their businesses before they opened them and so they 'skipped' important business development steps, such as branding, messaging and so forth. When these steps are created 'on the fly', it is nearly impossible to develop and manage a cohesive and professional marketing plan.
We designed our 24-week, intensive Business-driven Marketing ® Program to guide you through your business development plan and ultimately enable you to build an understandable, manageable and successful marketing plan. This is what we call business-driven marketing. Our Business-driven Marketing ® Program is the only course designed specifically for small business owners.
Acquire the skills and self-confidence you need to succeed in business.
