Marketing Made Real
Offered in partnership with Camden CoLab
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 Packaging – 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.
