• We will start each meeting promptly at 1:30 p.m in the Living Room (right off the coffee area) of Koelbel Library. Please come 5-10 minutes early to meet other attendees and get your computer or mobile device set up if you bring one. Your doing that will help ensure that we start on time and end on time.
Each meeting starts with attendee introductions, and please keep them to about 30-45 seconds. Tell us your name, your business, the type of customers you are looking for, and any questions you have related to the meeting topic. You can pass out your business cards at this time.
After the participant introductions, our speaker presents for about 45 minutes, allowing time for questions. We make sure to end by about 2:50 p.m. to allow time for networking.
This month, Lori Dubois of Marketing Troubadour will help us to do a brand checkup for 2020. We all need to check in with our brand, personal or business, from time to time to make sure it’s relevant and up to date.
Join us as we review the 5 components of your brand, learn why your brand IS your story but marketing is TELLING that story, and what the biggest branding mistake is for small business owners.
Leave with the right questions to ask so you know what parts of your brand may need attention, and how to know if your brand is attracting the people.
Lori Dubois is the owner of Marketing Troubadour, a marketing and branding firm focused on providing strategic advice and plans to small businesses to attract new customers and communicate better with existing customers. She believes every business is unique in the marketplace because no one else has the same story.
