So many businesses hit the ground running with great offerings, products, and services and then become frustrated when their phones are quiet and their social media followings or engagement are embarrassingly low. This is the time to explore your marketing strategy and find new ways to build a real audience among people who want what you offer.

But do you need a marketing consultant?  Isn’t marketing strategy something you can just figure out on your own?  The fact is, if you find the right marketing consultant, your investment will be returned to you many times over.  One quick word of advice can save thousands of dollars in tactical advertising plans.  One marketing strategy session can help guide you to best practices for converting your leads.

At Melissa Forziat Events, we start with a discussion with you to learn about your business goals, current marketing practices, your target market. From there, we build a tailored marketing strategy to achieve your goals.

For some, this means brand development.  For others, this means working out exactly who your target markets are and where to find them.  For others, this means planning a great event. We work together to focus on the marketing strategy that is right for your business.
