Value Prop Interactive: Strategic Marketing Program

Registration now open!

Introducing a program that will allow you to develop effective marketing strategies that will grow your business.

This is not a series of workshops -- or a broad brush introduction to Marketing 101 -- that will leave you wondering whether you'll ever realize a return on your investment. This is a program that results in results for your business!

Each participating company sends a team of attendees to program development working sessions offered once every quarter. They'll learn about critical marketing concepts that drive growth AND work together to apply those concepts specifically to your business -- all under the guidance of world-class marketing experts.

We are not talking about theory and case studies. Each quarterly program session results in an actionable strategy for your business to more effectively tackle growth opportunities.

Value Prop Program Includes:

  • Quarterly two-day workshops*
  • Monthly coaching calls
  • The Accelerator™ Online Strategic Marketing Planning Platform

Firms designate up to three attendees to participate in the program. We strongly recommend owners, executives, and/or senior management -- leaders at your firm who can make or recommend marketing strategies to grow your business.

Participation in the program is renewable annually for firms that continue to realize an ROI.

*Day 1 is the Value Prop Strategic Framework, a full day session in which participants learn the Value Prop Method for developing effective marketing strategies. The Strategic Framework session is offered every quarter.

Day 2 consists of two half-day sessions where we'll take a deep-dive into such important aspects as pricing your products, sales excellence, customer service, branding, social media, etc. Topics vary each quarter and are geared specifically to the attending companies.

Not sure this program is ideal for your business? Join us at one of the November Business Leader Breakfasts for an overview of the Value Prop program. There is no cost to attend, but advance registration is requested.
