Are you attending the Small Business Marketing Unleashed Conference in Houston, Texas on April 21 – 22, 2008?
I am so excited to be going — and I’m looking forward to seeing you there, if you can attend.
This is a two-day conference where you immerse yourself in online marketing. It is designed specifically for a small business (like mine). That is what I like about the Agenda. You’re not going to hear about marketing techniques you can’t afford or don’t have the staff to do.
I’ve been marketing on my own for several years now. But recently as my business has grown, I have had the luxury to seek out help from experienced top-notch marketers in several specialties. You’d think that I would have no need to attend a marketing conference if I’ve outsourced.
Just the opposite: I’ve found that when outsourcing parts of my marketing, more than ever I need to be knowledgeable. That way, I know the right questions to ask to address my needs. My providers don’t have to spend as much time educating me on the basics (and when I’m being billed by the hour, that saves real money). And in the end, I still have to make decisions and have my contract staff carry out portions of the marketing — being knowledgeable means we can execute quickly.
The topics and workshops are quite specific, so you should be able to get lots of detailed information:
