FAQ

My company is too small for marketing. Why should I attend?
As a small company, you use your resources wisely! And yet, we spend number of hours speaking with prospects who are not ready to buy from us. We also find it difficult to say “No” to any form of revenue coming in.  This workshop will help you define a marketing funnel and a product mix that will help you focus your sales and marketing resources.
I would rather just hire a consultant to take care of my marketing!
Excellent strategy! Works especially well when you know how to direct his/her energies! Outsourcing always works with the right blend of trusting your vendor and trying out new things with just enough knowledge to know how you can evaluate his/her performance!  Having clarity on the basics , the 4 Ps of marketing, enables you to work with your consultant and start seeing results.
Will this be a technical workshop?
In other words, can will we speak about details of email marketing or how to use implement FaceBook Pixel? NO! This workshop is meant to create a high – level strategy as well as a very tactical low – level implementation plan. We will not have the time to dive deep in to the techical implementation details. We have organized another workshop for that – you may attend that or depute one of your team members to attend that.
I can't afford marketing!
Most Small Business Owners see marketing as a cost center – an activity in which money is seen going out and not coming in. A few ways we can change that – 1) Instead of indiscriminately spending money on all and any marketing activity, if we focused in on that activity which will provide the highest returns, we will start to see the effectiveness. 2) Marketing is all about measurement and optimization. And that which we do not measure, we cannot optimize. 3) You do not need to allocate big budgets for marketing – just one or two activities done well will start to show you results.
I spent a lot of money with a marketing consultant and did not get any results!
We are sorry to hear that! But this does happen at times. But instead of playing the blame game, we could look at a few things here – 1) Did you have a clear objective for the consultant to work on or towards? 2) Were you measuring the outcomes and can you tell with numbers if he/she was effective or not? 3) Did you have monthly and quarterly business reviews with the consultant to review the metrics and provide course correcrtive directions? I am sure that we can list a number of things the consultant did wrong – however, with the three things above, you will be able to find what is working and what is not on which you can have control!
Most workshops like these are intended to just sell some other services. What are you selling?
As a company, we sell Coaching servies and provide marketing services like developing websites, marketing videos, running your email marketing campagins and social media campagins. And while we will have a plug or two for our services, we are COMMITTED to you creating a marketing plan which you can implement ON YOUR OWN! We promise that this workshop alone will be sufficient for 75% of the attendees to drastically alter their revenue flow. For the remaining 25%, we are here to serve you!
