Finding and projecting the authentic voice of your business across social media, email marketing, web PR and traditional marketing vehicles is essential to your sales success. Mastering these is no guarantee of success without a focused plan and the right talk track grounded in your business and clearly articulating your value proposition. Learn how to communicate with maximum impact through social media, email marketing, web public relations, video, audio and more as you zero in on your target audience. We will explore the differences between reaching end consumers (B2C) and other businesses (B2B) and the best methods for reaching each group. You will find the voice of your business that expresses the value and impact that only your products and/or services can deliver in words, sounds and images that capture the attention and the wallets of your target markets.
