Create a Strong Marketing Foundation
Much of what is in this post is info from Smart PR Communications' new Marketing Kick-Start webpage. The
idea is to solve a marketing dilemma that most small businesses--especially very small businesses face: How to turn a mostly ineffective, informal inhouse marketing program into something cohesive that will consistently deliver results. There is, of course, no shortage of consultants that offer these services. The difference here is that this program is designed to teach the client's existing inhouse talent and hand the program off.
It's a an excellent way for ineffective, hit-or-miss, marketing efforts to get out of limbo without making a significant, long-term investment and without perpetual dependence on a consultant.
While we offer an affordable, comprehensive Core Marketing Solution, it's not right for everyone. For any company that has talent that's eager to learn, we are eager to teach.
