Business Smarts - How to Create a Marketing Message That Connects and Sells

Fri 8:00 AM to 9:30 AM

You’ve got a great product or service, one that could make a huge difference to your target market. The problem is your market isn’t listening. How do you create that marketing message that gets your audience to sit up, take notice, ask questions, and buy? In this 90-minute workshop, learn the foundation for creating a marketing message that connects and sells. Then work through the basic template for structuring that message. By the end of class, you will have the foundation and basic skills you need to create multiple marketing messages that connect and sell.
