WILD WEDNESDAY WEBINAR: Building Your Brand With Purpose Learn How A Strong Marketing Message And The Right Self-Promo Can Help You Build a Brand That Sells Itself

2 days left!

Wednesday, May 27, 2020  |  11:30 -12:30pm (central)

 

Promotional products work, right? If we say tell our clients that using promotional products is the number one way to build their business, then why are we using cold calls to build ours?  Promotional products DO work, or more so, they CAN when used intelligently and intentionally.  As my friend Paul Kiewiet says, "It's not your client's job to remember you. It's your job to be unforgettable."  Let's get to it!

Attendees will learn:

How to start telling your brand's story in a fun and memorable way

The foundations of finding out who you are, what do you, who you do it for, and why

How to build a marketing campaign that will make a lasting first impression
