Start-Up Marketing Consultations

40


40 per session - Virtual OK

We walk through defining a professional marketing game plan to get your business off the ground. This is done in three levels and therefore three sessions. How many you decide to go through is up to you.

1) Half hour Skype to discuss what you've done, what you need, and where you want to go PLUS I give you general ideas that may or may not be available where you are.

2) I research your area and find specific ideas for you. This can take up to a couple hours because I do my best to find things you might not even think of.

3) You tell me what to include and I arrange a more specific marketing timeline so you can grow into it.

Sessions must be done in order. Session two may be skipped in favor of session three if you so choose, based on items discussed in session one. Special adaptations to this plan may be made depending on your circumstances.

A virtual service only.

About Shandra Plourde

Yes. I am a professional marketing coordinator. I've spent my career in mostly service marketing - healthcare, architecture, and non-profit sectors. I freelance in jump starting small business (tutors..., instructors, shop keepers, etc.) through strategic planning of marketing/advertising. I am quite handy at developing free and low cost marketing plans. I can teach you basic business marketing such as branding consistency, social media, b2b communications, and marketing plans. I answer Simbi mail 2x a week. Before I became a marketer, I was a technical curriculum developer and white paper editor. My writing styles include web content, press releases, curricula, technical documentation and product descriptions, feature news and radio. I am the editor of “Roadmap for Career Success” by best selling author Debora McLaughlin and Lisa Martelli . When you see my resume you will notice I often spend time as an event coordinator; both professionally and as a volunteer. My history of events goes back about 20 years (thank you Girl Scouts) and it was my first job out of undergrad. My hobbies include arts and crafts, travel, and learning business strategy. I've been into art for as long as I can remember however I have a fondness to pastel chalk and acrylic painting. Drawing is not my gift but the proper use of the tools of the trade I have learned through many, many art classes. Education: • MS Marketing • Graduate Certificate in Integrated Marketing Communications • Bachelors of Science Communications - Minor: Architectural Studies - Minor: Art Please see my resume on LinkedIn for more detail.show more
