Marketing Coach Toolkit

Marketing Coach Toolkit is an online tool that helps business owners create an expertly guided marketing strategy for their business.

The Marketing Coach Toolkit takes entrepreneurs through a relatively short series of questions online, and turns these answers into a one-page Marketing Strategy. Their ideas are harnessed into a structured layout to give them clarity. The entrepreneur then receives a 1:1 coaching call to ensure that they have a clear marketing action plan i.e. identify the key steps they need to take to get more customers.

This is ideal for business owners who are just starting out or diversifying their business. This simple, online tool can be really useful for people who need help in clarifying whom to target, how to target them and gives a concise plan of action to help them grow customers and sales! This event may be of interest to those interested in marketing automation and online marketing planning tools.

Date: Monday 24th September 2018
Time: 3.00 pm – 4.00 pm
Location: iHub training room at GMIT Mayo Campus, Castlebar
