With so much information available to them, customers are already 70% of the way through the buying journey before they even reach out to a business that can provide a product or service.

With so much choice, your customers are considering not just WHAT to buy but from WHOM? How do you ensure that your business is the one they choose?  

In this workshop, we’ll show why telling the story of your business, in many different ways, will demonstrate why you’re a great fit for your potential customers and why that will make them feel more connected to your company.

Who should attend this workshop?

Anyone using, or considering using social media, websites, blogging or video to increase their own visibility online, or increase the brand awareness of their company.
