Marketing in the Real World
For small businesses and nonprofits, marketing can seem too complicated or too expensive to be worthwhile. But without effective and strategic ways to keep in touch with customers and investors, any small business will miss reaching their potential.
In this highly participatory session, you will learn to draw on your business goals and easy to use ideas to jumpstart your marketing. Take advantage of what makes your business unique, along with low cost methods, to take your business or nonprofit to the next level. And return home with real ideas and plans to put in place.
Fiona O'Connor has worked in marketing communications in Boston for more than 20 years, with small and large nonprofits alike. Her passion is in training and consulting with smaller enterprises to unlock their potential through practical and effective marketing strategies. Fiona holds a Master in Business Administration from SImmons College in Boston and lives in Jamaica Plain with her husband and son.
