Ready, Set, Learn: Customized Content Marketing Training
Are you ready to stop acting like a new business?
When we launch, we’re often a one-person show, personally handling everything from business development to sales, customer service and marketing. But to grow into a more robust business, and bring our success and revenues to the next level, we need to move out of launch mode and start behaving like a mature business. We hire bookkeepers, office managers and sales reps. We invest in software and develop processes to enable us to ascend to a more strategic role, helping our businesses to grow and flourish.
Is your marketing still in launch mode?
So, is your marketing still in launch mode? Are you winging it, tweeting impulsively and erratically, struggling to come up with ideas for email newsletters, feeling guilty about the blog that hasn’t seen a new post in months? Are you feeling like the student intern doesn’t have the big picture, perhaps, or do you wonder whether the brochure you’ve created actually reflects the services your customers want?
