Join The Wizard Of Ads Group for this free public seminar and marketing workshop geared for owner-operated Main Street businesses, Friday morning June 14, 2013 in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Additionally, there will be an advanced private workshop Friday afternoon exclusively for guests of VTulsa magazine and members of Tulsa's Team LIVIN networking group (contact Bill@VTulsa.com for more info on this).
"Small" business owners have a unique set of issues facing them, and The Wizard Of Ads Group specializes in this particular worldview. We are the only marketing group, to our knowledge, that is global in scope (we have satellite offices across the US as well as in Canada, England, Latin America, and Australia), but local in focus (we only work with owner-operated companies at the local level).
We're assembling some of our top speakers from across the US and Canada to share their secrets on how to streamline your marketing and grow your business:
- Learn how to get more bang for your marketing buck!
- Make commercials more effective with powerful messaging.
- Trim the excess fat and really dial in your marketing budget.
- Learn the 12 Most Common Mistakes in marketing and how not to commit them.
- Cut through the clutter and speak to customers in the style they prefer.
- Social Media: Do's and Don'ts for owner operated businesses.
This is an open workshop and all business owners are invited. The only requirement is a desire to learn more about marketing. You will experience a fast-paced, jam-packed program with specific action items you can take with you and implement when you go back to work the next day. We will not--NOT--spend the day giving you sales pitches. There is nothing to buy at the back of the room.
Plus, we have a gift for you, that we will give to you at the seminar (these are real, tangible items, not "discounts" or some other sales gimmickry).
We promise that you will receive real value for your time spent with us, and we will not fill up the morning with sales pitches.
We'll cover a lot of territory throughout the morning and we've enlisted three of our most engaging speakers to present their ideas for you
