The Foundations of Marketing - 3 Part Series

Thu 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM
3 sessions ending Thu, Jun 18
Topic: Marketing and Sales

Thursdays, June 4, 11 & 18, 2020
9:00 am - 11:00 am

One of the most common reasons that new businesses struggle, and fail is that their founders don't know or understand at the beginning how to effectively market their business. They will often be grasping at straws to try to reach and acquire new customers:

  • Spending a lot of money on advertising that doesn't justify the investment with an adequate return.
  • Working hard to build a social media following only to have the social media platform make it more difficult to reach the followers without paying to reach them.
  • Being persuaded to pay thousands of dollars for special programs that promise results but don't deliver.
More often than not, these business owners are overwhelmed with all of the options for marketing tools and tactics that await them at every turn - in email, robo-calls, cold calling salespeople - interrupting their workflow and their life, but not delivering on their promises.

Foundations of Marketing is a three-part class especially designed for first-time business owners that will help you in these ways:

  • Provide an easy to understand framework that explains the stages and activities of attracting, developing, and retaining long-term customers.
  • Give you a clear understanding of the identity of your ideal customer, where to reach them, and the message they need to hear.
  • Teach you a step-by-step method for making your business easier to find online.
While marketing tools and tactics change every day, the basic goals and activities of marketing stay the same. We want you to know how to find, attract, convince, serve, and keep the people who are the life of your company - your customers!  What's included?
