Marketing with a Plan
Please come prepared to introduce yourself and your business in a different way:
I am [Name} from [Company Name] and my company is the best [WHAT] for [WHO] because [WHY].
Example: I am Carol Goedken with Action Marketing, and I am the best marketing consultant for all types of organizations because my model includes both strategic and tactical components and inspires you to TAKE ACTION!
Carol Goedken is an experienced executive with a proven track record of building start-ups and growing established companies. The focus of her career has been on launching new products that enhance people’s lives. She has enjoyed being a leader at privately-held and public companies, several start-ups, two of her own businesses as an entrepreneur, and at an international non-profit. The cornerstone of her work involves facilitating a half or full day session on “Marketing with a Plan” as she strongly believes that a strategic approach is critical to develop prior to executing marketing tactics.
