YOU'RE NOT IN THE BUSINESS OF MARKETING

BUT YOUR BUSINESS NEEDS MARKETING

I believe that effective marketing strategy should be accessible for businesses of all sizes, not just big corporations. The tools are there, but the gap lies in knowing which tools to use and how to use them. I help small business managers bridge that gap to help them save time, energy, money, and frustration.

Let me meet you where you are right now – whether you’re just starting out or have been in business for years. Together, we can map out a plan to get you where you want to be. Along with a network of super-talented pros, I can create the tools you need to start you down that path. But more importantly, I can empower you with the knowledge and understanding you need to make your tools work for you.

Introducing the
SIGNATURE SYSTEM MARKETING AUDIT
Discovery: Meet you to establish where you’re at
Brainstorm: Help you rethink what’s possible and possibly redefine “success”
Strategy: Map out a path for achieving your definition of success
Implementation: Provide services to help you get to your ultimate goal through design and training
The End Result: You achieve higher level of proficiency and efficiency in your business
The Bottom Line: You'll finally have the knowledge & tools to do business more efficiently and make more money

WHAT TO SAY AND HOW TO SAY IT
Using words and images to craft your online marketing content

Hosted by The Business Help Centre of Middlesex County

Are you using social media and/or email marketing to engage with your audience? If so, you probably find that one of your biggest challenges is coming up with content. What you say, and the way you say it (tone, date & time, frequency) is how you will attract, engage and be share-worthy to your audiences.

What are the Keys to Great Content?

This seminar will teach you the time-saving tips, techniques, and yes, even apps that will help your content - and the way you share it - succeed! You'll learn how to create, curate, and extend the content that will help you achieve your goals.

We’ll cover critical details like how to get and keep readers’ attention, how to turn questions into high-engagement content, tips on using graphics, pictures and videos, re-purposing content across multiple platforms, and more. And, we’ll give you the structure and tools to make creating your content fast, easy and effective.
