Before you think about spending a dime on marketing your small business, you need a reality check on some marketing fundamentals.

It's easy to get caught up with the latest trends and rush off to blog, twitter, and post. But unless you have a sound understanding of the 5 P's of marketing - Product, Price, Place, Promotion, and People - you'll be wasting your time and perhaps jeopardizing your business.

This interactive workshop will bring the 5 P's to life with a practical review of marketing fundamentals such as:

  • Market research
  • Evaluating your competition
  • Defining and reaching your target market
  • Working within your budget

After our review, you'll learn how to apply these principles first-hand as we work together to bring a product to "market".  We'll take our case study from inception to the sale, answering real-life questions about how to find your customers, outsmart your competition, and get the most bang out of your marketing buck.
