Value Prop Interactive: Strategic Marketing Program
development series

Value Prop is a series of quarterly workshops for business leaders to understand and apply the growth tactics that will give you the sales & marketing edge you need.

Why It Works

Each participating company sends a team of attendees to quarterly program development working sessions. They will 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.

This isn't theory and case studies. Each quarterly program session results in an actionable strategy for your business to more effectively tackle growth opportunities. We like to think of it as an expertly guided DIY strategic marketing program to more effectively and efficiently grow your business.

Value Prop Program Includes:

  • Participation by three members of the company's leadership team;
  • Five full-training days (includes the "Foundations Workshop" introductory session plus four, in-program training days that each covers at least two core topics*), delivered quarterly;
  • Additional web-based sessions between in-program days;
  • Access to the Accelerator™ Online Strategic Marketing Planning Platform;
  • As well as the course workbook and all related educational materials presented during the course.

*In-program training workshops will cover 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.

Who Should Attend

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.


The per company cost to participate in the 2015 program is $7,995 ... which covers the enrollment of three attendees, quarterly program sessions, books, workbooks, videos, online e-learning and collaborative platform, curriculum and highly-skilled faculty.

Enrollment is offered on a rolling basis. Get your business registered for the next session -- just click here to contact us by email or click on the link below:

Cybersecurity: What Northern New York Businesses Should Know

Presented in partnership with TwinState Technologies®, this 45-minute webinar will give you a better understanding of what types of cyber attacks are out there -- preying on firms, just like yours -- and what you can do to protect your customers, your staff and your business.

You've probably heard about the security breaches that cost megastores Target and Home Depot millions of dollars; but, did you realize that big businesses aren't the only ones on these criminals’ radars?  Small businesses are increasingly being hit by cyberattacks -- quite frankly, it's because they are much easier targets.

Click here to download the "You're Not As Safe As You Think" infographic.

Twinstate Technologies and CITEC Business Solutions have teamed up to make sure our North Country firms understand what they can do to protect their businesses. With the numbers of cyberattacks on small firms continuing to grow, we don't want your business to be one of the statistics: 60% of small businesses fail within 6 months of a cyberattack.

Join us for this Introduction into Cybersecurity, including information on:

     *   Types of Cyberattacks (You May Already Be A Victim)
     *   What the Law Says About Reporting Attacks
     *   Steps to Protect Your Business (...Yourself & Your Employees)
     *   Q&A (Stick around after the 45-minute informational session to ask questions)

Space is limited for this FREE informational webinar, so register today to ensure your space.
Date: Tuesday, February 10, 2015
Time: 1 PM to 1:45 PM (stick around for Q&A until 2 PM)

Details for joining the webinar will be sent once you register.
