Improving Your Marketing Strategy in 2018
Goal: Learn how to use marketing to increase revenue for you and your business

Marketing is not about “having an online presence”, even though most people think that. It still has to increase the revenue of your business. Marsha will help change how you use marketing tools – the same tools they may already be using – so that you market smarter. Together you will explore the five main steps of business profit. This session is designed to help you put marketing in perspective.

The goal of this important presentation and workshop is to realize that marketing does not have to be an expense to the business owner. You will begin to see it as an investment in building a larger, more qualified client base – that is, clients who will buy again and again from your company.
