This workshop will walk you through the steps to create a simple marketing plan and content calendar that will ebb and flow with your needs, and your workload. You will begin creating your plan during class and by the end, you’ll be ready to tackle marketing with new energy and ideas.
Whether you have a very small team of just 1 or 2 people, or a larger team that's ready to carry the flag, this class will help you get a better grasp on your own marketing strategy. We will be using low-to-no-cost tools that make it very easy to plan and manage your own campaigns.
- Follow-along workbook to take notes, follow instructions, and complete exercises
- Presentation slides and exercises will be provided to all participants
- Toolkit - a collection of templates, forms, worksheets, and other resources
What To Expect:
Participants will be able to speak and interact with the instructor and each other. There will be ample time for Q&A at the end, but we also have plenty of group discussions planned during the session and participants are encouraged to interact and ask questions throughout the session. There will be two ten-minute breaks to check your email, grab a cup of coffee, etc.
Who Should Attend?
Founders, Directors and business owners are encouraged to send key team members if they are unable to attend themselves. In fact, we have a BOGO offer this month, with two tickets provided for the price of one, so you can attend yourself and invite a team member, friend or colleague to come too.
