Not only is the world of marketing huge, it’s also pretty confusing considering just how many ways that you can market your business. How do you know which option is right for your business - am I spending money on the right type of advertising? Why can’t people find my business? Do I need a plan?
So many businesses are focused on the day-to-day running of their business, marketing tends to fall in the ‘don’t have enough time’, ‘feeling a bit overwhelmed so will just leave it’ or ‘how much?!’ baskets.
We will guide you through the basic marketing principles and work with you to develop strategies/plans that are most relevant to your business. Don’t let your business get stuck in a marketing rut, we will give you the tools to maximise your marketing and get your business on the right track.
Our coaching is ideal for new or existing small business owner/operators, or to upskill any staff who are responsible for your marketing. Available either in person or online.
