September 28 topic: Crafting a 30-Marketing Plan That Works as Hard as You do.

In this introduction to Building a Perpetual Marketing Machine, you will gain a new perspective on how to market your company in tough times. Not everyone is a Nike, so you shouldn’t advertise like one. The Perpetual Marketing Machine is built on a foundation that first considers your client’s perspectives, opinions, challenges, and pains. You will learn how to develop brand messaging that is relevant and appealing because it allows you to speak to your customers directly – making you the obvious solution to their challenges.

This approach is proven to deliver new customers, increase sales and improve profits quickly because it starts with the customer!

This presentation will help you:

  • Understand how to build a Perpetual Marketing Machine
  • Position your company as “remarkable” and hear examples of remarkable marketing that you can implement today to grow your business
  • Eliminate marketing tactics that have low ROMI

You will learn:

  • Multiple ways to market to new prospects and clients
  • Common marketing mistakes that small- to mid-size companies make and how to avoid them
  • How to profile and find the perfect customer and then build a robust prospect database of them
  • How to understand the new buyer behavior in the new economy
  • How to use “low-risk” and “no-risk offers”
  • How to take advantage of the Internet and Social Media
