PRINCIPLES OF MARKETING AND PROMOTION NEW !

Send To Friend?

Instructor: Greg Marsh

No one is going to buy your product or service, attend your event, or visit your location just because you are a nice person. They need to see the benefit to their action. Marketing is a useful tool (part science, part art) that anyone can ethically use to increase the likelihood of being successful in business and in life. The Principles of Marketing apply equally well to landing a job or having a successful yard sale as it does to selling a soft drink or some widget.

This class will coach students to apply Marketing principles to their lives and business. Stop wondering why your event or business is not as successful as you hoped. Instead, learn how to make Marketing work for you.
