The Marketing Round-table II held it's formation meeting on October 6, 2009, at the the Ayers Hotel and thought you might be interested in joining the group.
The Marketing Roundtable will help its members hone the skills needed to market their business from the ground up. The group agreed in the initial meeting to begin by drafting Mission and Vision Statements and Business Plans. The self-directed group may choose to work on a variety of marketing activities including:
- Determining target markets, target clients and target referral sources
- Creating the "Personal Story - Who I Am, What I Do" and an "Elevator Speech"
- Creating a company Internet presence including web site, blog and using social media
- Identifying networking opportunities
- Creating various marketing materials, both print and web-based
Ultimately, our goal is to develop a functional and realistic marketing plan and materials. All of these efforts will be done with the support and feedback of other members of the Round-table.
The design of the group is such that members help members so commitment and regular participation are required. And since participation in this group is limited to just a few more members, it is essential that you join the group at it's next meeting, 11 AM - 1 PM on November 6, 2009, at The Lakes, 400 S Sepulveda Blvd, El Segundo CA 90245.
