What you'll learn:

We will start with How to Create an Ideal Client Experience using The Marketing Hourglass from Duct Tape Marketing. We focus on the total customer experience that ultimately leads to referrals and marketing momentum. We use the Hourglass diagram to explain a logical path a lead should follow to participate in a company’s fully-developed Marketing Hourglass.

It’s one of the key elements in the overall Duct Tape Marketing system, but we could, in some ways, condense the entire course to this one concept, as it seems the easiest way to explain the marketing process in simple and practical terms. This session addresses the 7 phases of the Hourglass so that you’ll be able to apply the concepts to your business or organization.

Email is the most cost-effective, targeted and efficient way to build and maintain relationships in all types of businesses and organizations. The first part of this session will teach you how to master email communications with a comprehensive look at best practices and winning strategies that lead to increased profits, revenue and engagement.
