Tolita DukesMarketing, that old chestnut…

Does the thought of marketing immediately give you a headache or stir feelings of excitement and possibility? For most business owners I expect the former!

THE TRUTH IS: Every business NEEDS marketing. It shouldn’t cost you the earth. And it should not be the most painful part of your day!

Let me introduce you to a MODERN WAY OF MARKETING for your business. When you are running a business, every single moment of the day counts. Marketing should be an exciting part of your day, yes every day! Something which energises you and drives your interest and curiosity. Most importantly, it should not take endless hours!


• Which advertising medium should I go with to get the best results?
• Will it reach my audience?
• Do I have to have a website? Do I have to update it?
• What about social media? Do I have to be on there?
• How much money do I have to invest to get a result?



In the Modern Day Marketing workshop, we will be providing the framework necessary for you make informed decisions about marketing your business in a modern format, easy to understand, digest and most importantly DO.

We will also be providing you with some marketing hacks to take away and apply, including some great programs and scheduling tools to make your marketing life easier.

Join me on Wednesday July 20 from 9.30am at Royal Pines Resort to discover the ‘how to’ for smart marketing your business in the modern day, in a modern way.
