Marketing 200 Program
This is a program we have designed that provides a step-by-step procedure on how to market yourself to 200 Meeting Planners in such a way that you will be able to double or even triple your business in a year. It is a twelve month program that outlines the procedure on a monthly basis. We even provide you with 200 meeting planners and their contact information to assist you in using the program. Most people will work it for a month or two and give up. You need to follow the entire program for it to be successful. We will even work with your staff to guide them on ways to work with meeting planners and help them with scripts to use. One of our clients is a trainer who teaches people how to become trainers. He used the program for one entire year and called us at the end of the year to proudly announce he had tripled his business, taking him into the six digit income bracket. THIS PROGRAM IS OFFERED AS A BENEFIT TO OUR MEMBERS. YOU ARE NOT REQUIRED TO WORK THE PROGRAM IF YOU DO NOT WISH TO.
