When you’re an overworked marketer managing multiple projects, competing priorities and unrealistic deadlines, you feel like you’re treading water just to say afloat!

Marketing has changed. There are more channels, more complex persona segmentation, more demand for creative campaigns in multiple media, and everything is underlined by the drive to produce more, more often, and faster.

But simply ‘doing more’ no longer works.

When you’re on a treadmill, you’re not only burnt out, you’re not doing your best work, and when you’re not doing your best work, you hide your true value as a marketer.

That’s why more marketers are making the shift to Agile marketing.

Work at a Manageable Pace, Contributing Creative & Innovative Ideas

Agile Marketing allows you to decide with your team:

  • How much work you can manage at a sustainable pace, avoiding burnout and making you love your job again.
  • Prioritize only the most important work, keeping you and your team focused on delivering high-value, quality campaigns instead of constantly starting and stopping work that the person screaming the loudest asked for.
  • A structure to get leaders asking what they want, but not exactly how they want it, leaving creativity and innovative thinking up to you and your team.

And because you’re focusing your efforts on the most-valuable campaigns, as you get better results, your value as a marketer becomes more visible and that’s what makes you invaluable to your current company and the marketplace.

With Agile Marketing, you can actually get better quality work to customers faster, using fewer people and improved communication—no fancy or expensive tools are required!

By spending just a few days learning about Agile Marketing, you’ll learn practical, easy-to-implement techniques that you can start with your team right away!

Learn Practical, Hands-on Techniques You Can Use Right Away

In this two-day, highly-interactive workshop you’ll walk away with:

  • Strategies for prioritizing the most important work, and how to tactically say no to work that’s low value.
  • Visually mapping a marketing campaign and determining ways that you can break work up to deliver pieces to customers faster.
  • A one-sentence writing technique called ‘Customer Stories’ to quickly adjust the tone of your campaign to be more customer-centric.
  • Ways to create customer personas using what you know now, allowing you to get to faster delivery of real work.
  • A format for creating a ‘Brief Brief’ that guides the agile team strategically, but allows room for creative thinking.
  • An understanding of the agile mindset, principles, roles and frameworks including Scrum, Kanban and Lean Marketing.

  • Marketers in transition that want the skills to differentiate themselves in a highly-competitive market.
