Hi my name is Mrs. Ortega
I have a passion of seeing all people of life be successful. When you have a gift that produces a talent whether it’s a product or service, we need to be able to network and give back to our communities. I would like to bring to you some valuable information that may help your business grow through increasing revenue results.
We will discuss how to overcome fears of combining marketing tools and your social media. Some of us are not as updated on technology versus major companies who use marketing firms. We will discuss old marketing vs new marketing.
How important is Branding? 78% of companies now say they have dedicated social media teams. Logo’s, trademarks and slogans are important for identity purposes. What really makes your business unique?
We’ll contact you about your goals and objectives. And decide together on the best marketing plan. If we don’t have what you need, we’ll be more than happy to connect you to the people that do.
Reserve your seat for this spectacular teaching from the experts https://1on1coachinggrowingyourbusiness.eventbrite.com
