How to Market ‘Your’ Business in 2016

I have recently completed the design of promotional material for a marketing workshop by Paul Kurnyta of The Local Marketing Business. The designs included A5 flyers, website banners and graphics.

Paul has been one of my clients for over 5 years now and I can thoroughly recommend checking this out. If you struggle with your marketing, don’t know where to begin or fail to see any real growth and returns then this workshop is for you! In just 90 minutes Paul will help you simplify your marketing and give you a better understanding of how to market your business more effectively.

The workshop takes place on Tuesday 29th March, 12:30pm-2pm and costs £30 per person. The venue is The New Gerard Buxton Sports Ground, Brinkworth Road, Royal Wootton Bassett, Wiltshire SN4 8DS.

Here Paul explains more about the workshop: "You have a wealth of choice when it comes to marketing your business: websites and online, email marketing, pay per click, SEO, PR, advertising, direct mail, networking, tele-appointing, 
events and promotions...and the list goes on.

"But which of these ‘tools’ are best for your particular business? More importantly, which of these tools are best for your particular business right now?

"Creating a marketing plan that consistently delivers results doesn’t mean it needs to be expensive to implement, difficult to execute or 
time-consuming to manage. Quite the opposite. A simple, considered plan coupled with a better understanding of how to action it 
can help you be more productive in your marketing and will save you a bucket-load of cash in the long term.

"At the end of the workshop you’ll leave with a clear, considered plan and hopefully a few new ideas to boot."
