WHAT MAKES THIS WORKSHOP DIFFERENT?

2 hours

7 questions

15 entrepreneurs

There is enough information about marketing on the internet, in fact, too much of it! Having more information will not help your business grow … 

What will really help is specific answers to your very specific marketing questions and the clarity on what to do next, step by step.  

We have created the 'Marketing Q&A' workshop with this in mind.  

IS THIS WORKSHOP FOR YOU?

  • Business owner, CEO or just interested in growing your business through marketing
  • Small and medium size business, operating for at least 2 years 
  • B2B and B2C, products and services 
  • No time to read endless articles to answer your marketing question 
  • Want to exchange ideas with like-minded entrepreneurs  

WHAT’S IN IT FOR YOU? 

  • NO MORE WASTED TIME - Save time by tapping into expert advice instead of spending endless hours trying to find the answer yourself 
  • NO MORE BEING STUCK - Get YOUR very specific question answered - for your business, your industry, your context, your situation
  • NO MORE FEELING LONELY - Leverage the experience and knowledge of the entrepreneurial community  
  • HAVE FUN, MEET NEW PEOPLE! 

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Decide if you want to ASK A QUESTION or you just want to participate as an OBSERVER. Observers can learn from the tips shared by the experts and participate in the group discussion. Buying a ticket gives you the right to join the workshop, whether you have a question or you’re an observer.  

Buy your ticket and send us your question. You can do that by filling in the form below.  

During the 2 hours we will answer 7 questions. We apply the ‘FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED’ principle.  

If we receive more than 7 questions per event, we will organize a separate session. We will inform you by email of all the details. No question will remain unanswered! 

The experts will answer your question with clear action points.  

In addition, the other participants will be encouraged to share their knowledge & experience so you can benefit from the collective ‘wisdom’.  

If you submit a question, please be prepared to give a very short context of your business and challenge.  

Note: 

We will only answer questions that are sent 48h prior to the event. 

If the discussion of your specific question gets too complicated or long for some reason, we promise to follow up with you separately. We guarantee that you will be completely satisfied with the advice you've received so you can move your business forward!

EXAMPLES OF QUESTIONS TO INSPIRE YOU

  • How can we successfully compete with the 'big guys' if we don't have a huge marketing budget?  
  • I've been using Facebook Ads to try to sell my services but it's just not working. What do I need to do differently to get better results?
  • We want to attract more clients. How do we choose which online platforms to focus on for more impact?  
  • How can I set myself apart from my competitors and not have to compete on price?  
  • My potential clients work in large multinationals. How can I introduce my services to these companies?
