ABOUT THIS COURSE: Do you need help with or are you starting a new creative or healing arts business? Are your goals overwhelming you? Do others perceive what you do differently from how you see your business? Are your visual materials out of date or inconsistent? Has your business changed focus? Do you lack a strong client base? Are you able to identify what is unique about what you do? Are you harnessing the Net effectively? Does a poverty mindset interfere with how you price your services?
The creation of a solid marketing action plan will help clarify your goals, identify your perferred clients, and enable you to understand and convey your unique hook.
