Learn how to use the 5 Principles of Marketing to have greater sales success
Every small business owner tends to struggle with two things: Marketing and Sales.
- How do I get more people to find out about what I do and how do I get them inspired enough to contact me?
- How do I sell my product/service at the price I want, versus losing the sale?
There are 5 foundational marketing principles that are used in every marketing medium. If you are not making use of them in your networking, direct mail, email campaigns, website, speaking engagements and any other type of marketing, you are not achieving the success of marketing and sales you could be.
In Frank’s presentation you will learn how to put into place your Strategic Revenue Cycle so you will always have new and repeat business. Frank has taught these marketing principles to Fortune 500 companies, as well as, sole proprietors.
“These principles are not hard, at all, they just need to be focused upon and used consistently.“ - Frank De Raffele
