Failure to plan is planning to fail. It’s just that simple. The #1 problem we find within businesses we interact with is the lack of strategy guiding their efforts. Developing an overarching plan is key to ensure you target the right people, at the right time, using the right platform with the right message. Where do you want your business to be in 1, 3, 5 years down the road? Do you know who your competitors are? How is your brand represented in the market? What’s your value proposition and why should your customers care about YOU? This session is probably our most favorite – and most requested topic – because once you establish this, everything else falls into place.
