Marketing Matters graduates improve their marketing strategy and their bottom line. Here’s what they are saying:
“It forces you to concentrate on issues within your business and narrow your focus to what’s truly necessary and cost effective, and to focus on who your prime customers are. My mentors and their individualized attention were invaluable. Absolutely phenomenal! Marketing Matters helped me develop a marketing plan that is doable, organized and wonderful. It’s worth every penny.” Leigh Forrester, Bark ‘N Howl Pet Bakery
“I now know how to analyze my clients and understand who they are. I focus more on what they order and their ages and analyze who my average customer is. The ‘hidden secret’ is a formula the mentors teach you. Now I get it.”Katie Rider, Gregory Paul’s (specially prepared meals and catering)
