- Find out what the successful Get Clients Now system is, and how it works and can help you to focus on those marketing activities that will get you the results you want. I teach you the 28-day framework so you can use this by yourself again and again in the future.
- How to build a relationship with your clients and how the marketing cycle works. Where are you stuck and do you need to work on? Have you got enough info about your clients? Do you need to follow up more frequently? Do you need to get more opportunities to meet and sell? Or does your presentation and negotiation skills need to be improved?

- How to make time for marketing?
- On this full-on day you will create your own 28-day marketing plan with specific marketing and sales goals and 10 actions that will work the best for you and your business. After this workshop you will have a very clear idea of what to do exactly to reach your own marketing goal.
- EXTRA: you can get individual & confidential feedback from me by email (it often is 2-3 emails with very specific questions and feedback!) to select the best marketing goal for you and your business, and the 10 daily or weekly activities YOU want to focus on. This will really help you to get ready to start the 28 days of DOING the marketing - either by yourself or as part of our coaching group (see below).
This is an online workshop, so you can join us from anywhere in the world! Perfect for professional creatives who don't have easy access to professional training and advice!
Each session will be recorded, and you will have access to the recording and the presentations on our private online training platform. So you can watch the sessions again and again if you like. There you can also post any further marketing questions you might have, and can network with the other participants. You will have access to this workshop till 1 April 2016.
