Kick off 2016 with a marketing plan that will really work. A lot entrepreneurs and small businesses fall into similar traps when it comes to developing their marketing plans. 1-They create one that is to elaborate and is either too hard to carry out on a consistent, regular basis or too difficult to measure its effectiveness. 2-They don’t plan at all and just chase fades for the year. Basically they planned to fail because they failed to plan. This lead Jeff to create the 1-Hour Marketing Plan. If you can’t put your plan together in one hour you’re making it too difficult, too big, or too hard for you and or your staff to carry out on a consistent and regular basis. In one hour you’ll have a marketing plan that will eliminate many of the hours you are currently spending aimlessly on marketing, reduce the dollars spent on marketing and you’ll have maximized the results of your efforts and increase your sales and customer engagement with your business. Jeff is a small business marketing expert with over 20 years of experience helping small business owners and professionals who want to grow and sell more products or services. Over the past six years Jeff has trained and coached more than 20,000 people. As an international speaker he has presented more than 500 times in the past five years. CLICK HERE TO REGISTER!
