A Complete masterclass

Validate Your Idea

So you’ve got an idea, how do you know whether or not you can actually make money off of it? We’ll dive into how to validate an idea to see if people will buy before you build.

Measure Your Results

It would be nice if we could just try our best and sit back…but a smart marketer keeps an eye on key metrics, and notices how slight adjustments can affect your bottom line.

Position Your Product and Yourself

We’ll discuss the optimal way to present your product to draw in your audience and increase sales. We’ll also talk about using your personal brand to increase your sales.

Focus Only On What Works

Armed with the data from measuring your results, we can discover where the smart time and money should be spent, so you don’t waste time and can get back to your other duties.

Engage With Your Audience

There are so many ways to engage with people using today’s technology, what is hard is knowing which tools to use, and how to use them most effectively.

Gain Traction

After launching and acquiring initial customers, we’ll look ahead at ways to reduce churn and turn our customers into our best evangelists.
