      So you’ve got a great product or service.  Now how do you get consumers to buy?

      Marketing brings the customers to you (or your website, your store or your company). Success means having a great marketing strategy both ONLINE and OFFLINE.

      You will leave this 6-hour, 5-speaker workshop with all the elements to successfully market your business.

      First you will identify the issues below. This will prepare you to focus on the best, most effective and within your budget vehicles to use to get your message out to your defined target market.

      • Who’s my customer?
      • How will he/she use my product/service?
      • What do they need to know about it?
      • What makes it special, different, better?
      • How much will they pay?
      • How can they sign on, buy it?

      DEVELOPING AND IMPLEMENTING YOUR MARKETING STRATEGY
      Instructor:  Sandy Eames

      A successful Marketing Strategy is a critical part of implementing the business plan for any small business. This workshop walks participants through the basic questions that clarify the business model, then explores low cost ways to effectively do market research, followed by 10 ways to implement a marketing strategy on a shoestring budget. Successful pricing and selling strategies will also be discussed along with the importance of setting and monitoring goals.

      FREE ADVERTISING: How to build a brand like Starbucks, grow like a startup and scale your marketing without fear
      Instructor:  Jan Roos
      It’s all about customers – acquiring them, retaining them, and knowing the lifetime cost of customer acquisition and retention.

       

      SELLING STRATEGIES FOR SMALL BUSINESS

      Instructor:  Robert Serabin

      Strategic selling is the last step in the marketing process, and a very critical one too. This workshop discusses the different selling styles that need to be used in selling services vs. products. Then the five levels in the marketing ladders are discussed: market research, distribution, pricing, packaging and communications, together with tips on proven selling practices.

      CREATING A MARKETING MIX THAT WORKS FOR YOUR COMPANY
      Instructor:  Sandra Clayton

      Successful small businesses are using a mix of traditional, digital and social marketing channels to maximize their exposure to reach their target audience. Learn how you can do the same as we review current trends and compare the effectiveness and costs of different marketing tactics. Understand how to integrate and track the return from each marketing channel to identify where to invest more of your time and money, and what marketing efforts should be dropped. Look at the differences between marketing to businesses and consumers and how to implement your chosen marketing mix.

      DIGITAL MARKETING & SOCIAL MEDIA
      Instructor:  Maisha Walker

      • Build (or upgrade) an effective website?
      • Learn which social media sites best fit your business?
      • Create an internet marketing plan?
      • Implement your marketing campaign?

      Your customers are on social media sites so you had better be there too! But where to be and what to say makes the difference between success and failure when it comes to a Social Media Strategy. In this seminar, social media expert Maisha Walker will start you on the road to answering your questions.

    1. LIVE Webinar 4/2: The Barefoot Spirit and Company Culture: Sales is King
      1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

      Get the benefit of 30 years of successful business experience in one hour! You will learn:

      • How to use the Two-Division Company model to maximize sales, the life blood of your company
      • How to use performance-based compensation to increase sales, growth and profitability
      • How to find and hire people with entrepreneurial DNA
      • How to train new employees to focus on Sales
      • How to foster innovation by getting out of your people’s way
      • How to prevent turnover (the #1 hidden cost of any business)

      Bonnie Harvey and Michael Houlihan

      Barefoot is a top global brand, and founded by Michael Houlihan and Bonnie Harvey, the authors of the New York Times Bestselling Business book, The Barefoot Spirit and its companion, The Entrepreneurial Culture.  From the start, with virtually no money and no wine industry experience, they employed innovative ideas to overcome obstacles, create new markets and strategic alliances, while pioneering Worthy Cause Marketing and performance-based compensation.

      One of the keys to their success was implementing a positive company culture. If any business is to thrive in the global marketplace, its employees must be engaged and empowered. In other words, they must think like owners. Problem is, few employees know how. The job of company leaders is to train them to think this way. Michael Houlihan and Bonnie Harvey know how to create the conditions that draw out and nourish people’s inner entrepreneur. They take the principles that empowered their own tribe of productive, creative and loyal employees to beat the odds; and boil them down into poignant lessons business owners can put into practice right away to boost their bottom line.

      They take everything they know about the spirit of entrepreneurship and help startups, leaders and corporation infuse that experience into their company cultures to engage and empower their people.

      This webinar is for those that are both in the startup and growth phase stages of their business looking to boost the bottom line and increase profits and have (or want to have) a product delivered through a distribution system.

      Presenters: Michael Houlihan and Bonnie Harvey, founders of Barefoot Wine, and the authors of the New York Times Bestselling Business book The Barefoot Spirit.

      You’re smart. Hardworking. You absolutely love what you do and (truth be told!) you’re great at it. Yet for some unknown reason, you are not where you want to be in your life and/or your business. Overwhelm, frustration, fear and worry can keep you stuck one minute and push you into overdrive the next. What if the real secret to meaningful success is beyond “Getting Things Done”? (Seriously…can you fit in even one more thing anyway?)

      In this unique, insightful and fun presentation you will discover:

      • The number 1 thing you need to manage all day, every day (even more important than time and money).
      • Why “Positive Thinking” (a good thing!) is simply not enough to move past self-defeating behavior.
      • The 4 categories of action and why not all action serves you

      You will leave this program able to move forward with more congruence, confidence and effectiveness in both your life and your business.

      More About Claudia Chan

      claudia_chan_bio_graphicClaudia Chan is the CEO and Founder of S.H.E. Globl Media Inc., the multi-platform women’s empowerment media company behind the renowned global women’s conference, S.H.E. Summit. As a women’s empowerment expert and social entrepreneur, Claudia’s life passion is to help women unlock their limitless potential in career and life, because she believes when women do better, the world does better.

      After a decade-long entrepreneurial career as president of women’s events company, Shecky’s, Claudia noticed a lack of diverse female role models and empowering messages in the media, and realized this directly hindered how women and girls perceived their own potential in career, life, and self-confidence. As a response, she launched S.H.E. Globl Media Inc. in 2012, creating digital content, conferences and programs to make empowerment and mentorship accessible to all women.

      As a women’s empowerment expert and entrepreneur, Claudia Chan and her initiatives have been widely quoted and featured in top tier outlets, including New York Times, NBC, Wall Street Journal, Forbes, Business Insider, Mashable, Huffington Post, Good Housekeeping Magazine, PEOPLE StyleWatch, In Style, and others. Claudia has been referred to as the possible “Richard Branson of Women’s Empowerment” by FastCompany, “SHE Who Must Be Obeyed” by Newsweek/The Daily Beast, a “Success Story” by FOX Business, a MAKER by the AOL/PBS initiative, “Makers: Women Who Make America,” “The Woman Helping to Redefine ‘Having It All’” by Refinery29, “One of the world’s most curious people” by Vanity Fair, “a motivational media woman in charge” by Cosmopolitan Magazine and “Intrepid Woman” by The Glass Hammer. Claudia has spoken nationally at renowned events and universities – including Social Good Summit, TEDxMiddlebury, Cornell Johnson’s Business School, Columbia University, and Princeton University – on leadership, entrepreneurship, confidence and business at corporations, universities, and conferences nationwide.

    1. International Anti-Street Harassment Week (all-day)
      Apr 12 – Apr 18

      Catcalls, sexist or sexual comments, homophobic and transphobic slurs, flashing, groping, stalking, and assault in public spaces. Gender-based street harassment is a global problem. It makes us feel less safe, it restricts where we go. IT MUST END.

      Join Meet Us On The Street April 12-18, 2015, as we rally, march, and hold workshops, tweet chats, wheatpasting and chalkwalks to bring attention to this problem & engage our communities in solutions. 

      Read about what happened 2014!

      What’s the Problem?
      Catcalls, sexist comments, public masturbation, groping, stalking, and assault: gender-based street harassmentmakes public places unfriendly and even scary for many girls, women, and LGBQT people. It limits their access to public spaces.

      What is It? 
      Meet Us On the Street: International Anti-Street Harassment Week – a program of Stop Street Harassment -  is an opportunity to collectively raise awareness that street harassment happens and that it’s not okay.

      Here are ideas for how to participate.

      Why a Week?
      Activists and individuals around the world work hard year-round to make public places safer but once a year we can help amplify each other’s voices and make the global mainstream media pay attention by collectively speaking out together.

      Why Hold it in April?
      April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month in the USA and springtime in the Northern Hemisphere. While street harassment occurs year-round, spring is a time when there is an increase in the harassment because of the increased daylight hours and warmer weather that brings people outside. Street harassment is often seen as an inevitable part of the change in seasons, but it shouldn’t be. Spring is no excuse for street harassment.

      Who are the Organizers? 
      International Anti-Street Harassment Week is a program of Stop Street Harassment.  A core team of activists led by Holly Kearl and Britnae Purdy are are largely volunteering their time to make the campaign possible.

      What’s the History of the Week?
      On March 20, 2011, after only a month of planning, more than 2,000 people from at least 13 countries participated in International Anti-Street Harassment Day. In 2012, it was expanded into a week, and more than 100 groups from over 20 countries co-sponsored the week and tens thousands of people participated through online activism, rallies, marches, events, and sidewalk chalk parties.

      Her Agenda_April Panel_ALL

      Building a career isn’t easy no matter what industry you’re breaking into but making a living within creative industries is often a feat many deem as a fairy tale. In a world where ideas matter more than your degree it’s hard to know where to start, or how to effectively monetize (or fund) your creative dreams. Everyone has a different path, but it can’t hurt to learn from the journeys of others and use their lessons to inspire our own path. We will spend the evening with three creatives who have figured out how to make a living from their passion. From designing and creating a street-wear brand, to handling illustration and design for big brands to interior designing for start ups, these women make their creativity work for them on a daily basis.

      THE PANELISTS

      • Leah McSweeney……founder, CEO Married to the Mob
      • Sophia Chang…..Designer/Illustrator
      • Danielle Arps……Interior designer for startups

      Owner and founder Leah McSweeney established Married To The Mob in 2004 as one of the first streetwear brands designed by women for women. After using a $75,000 settlement she won from New York Police Department, McSweeney built her brand around the values of embodying the female perspective of what it’s like to run with the downtown New York scene. Moving forward to continually disrupt its men’s dominated marketplace, MTTM constantly emerges year after year with highly regarded original collections. Its impressive list of collaborations include KAWS, MCM, Burton, female graffiti artist Fafi, Reebok, colette, Nike, Peanuts by Mark Schultz, Diamond Supply Co., Lacoste, ALIFE, G-Shock, Palladium, and others.

      WORKSHOPS

      Fight Like a Woman: Krav Maga is the official self defense training for the Israeli Defense Forces. It is today also the official self-defense system for U.S. law enforcement. It is popular is because it is based on instinctive movements and techniques that are functional, regardless of size and gender. The workshop will discuss the practicality and thinking behind Krav Maga and the mental game when in a situation where self defense is necessary.

      INSTRUCTOR: Marcus Kowal is a former Ranger (Special Forces) with the Swedish Military; pro kickboxer and MMA fighter; Golden Gloves Finalist Boxer; and 2nd degree Krav Maga Black Belt.

      Massaging Your Way to Optimal Health: Acupressure is a form of touch therapy that utilizes the principles of acupuncture and Chinese medicine.  It involves the application of manual pressure (usually with the fingertips) to specific points on the body. It is sometimes thought of as acupuncture without the needles. Acupressure points lie along meridians or energy channels within one’s body.  These points are stimulated in an effort to help restore balance in one’s body. During this workshop, Dr. Yu will be showing participants how to stimulate their own acupressure points to alleviate such symptoms as pain, headache, nausea, menstrual cramps, abdominal pain, and insomnia.

      INSTRUCTOR: Felicia Yu, M.D., is currently an East-West Primary Care Fellow at the UCLA Center for East-West Medicine. Her professional interests include preventive medicine, women’s health, improving the quality of life for cancer patients and survivors, the mind-body connection, and educating patients on the different approaches to healing.

    1. It’s Time 2015 – The Partnership Summit to Elevate Women’s Leadership @ Baltimore Convention Center
      10:00 am – 3:30 pm

      it's time 2015

      The Partnership Summit to Elevate Women’s Leadership

      It’s Time Network is a diverse network of women and men working to evolve democracy and affirm the value of interdependence between all people and groups. Building connections between political leaders, grass roots activists, local communities, and national associations, ITN’s mission is to generate awareness around the importance of empowering women and girls and galvanize action across a range of issues including:

      • Gender Equity
      • Economic Equality
      • Active And Balanced Political Participation
      • Peace And Security
      • Regenerating the Earth

      Women make up more than half the U.S. population, yet they are underrepresented in positions of power and opinion in every sector of American society.

      It’s Time Network believes the full empowerment of women and girls calls for gender partnership by unifying voices and sharing resources across all sectors. We envision a world in which women and men share collective equality and equal representation, as we evolve our democracy, build a fair economy, and regenerate the Earth. Through curating annual summits, local advocacy groups, and funding opportunities, ITN aims to address challenges that stem from the preclusion of women at decision-making levels across all sectors.

      ITN will host the annual It’s Time Partnership Summit that brings together network partners through inclusive and interactive dialogue about our common future.

      It’s Time 2015: The Partnership Summit

      May 1-3 Baltimore, Maryland

      The inaugural three-day event presented by It’s Time Network, along with our convening partners Women Donors Network, the Global Fund for WomenWomen Moving MillionsWomen’s Funding Network, and Let Girls Lead, will draw an audience of up to 2,500 representing full spectrum of social and economic diversity. The summit will highlight organizations and thought leaders who recognize the need for women and men to work together to elevate women’s leadership and participate in designing a better future for our world. Multiple satellite gatherings in Partner Cities around the US will be streamed live globally. Subsequent summits will continue the momentum, report on progress and advance the growing network’s collective impact.

      Partner Cities Program

      It’s Time Network collaborates on a local level with established organizations driving change. A diverse set of community leaders, politicians, activists and funders work together to ensure women’s participation at decision-making tables across all sectors in their cities. In parallel with the annual It’s Time Partnership Summit, each Partner City will host satellite-viewing gatherings that connect with the entire network to catalyze and renew commitment to a collective agenda.

      Mika Brzezinski wants women to get more confident and she wants them to do it now. That’s why she’s teamed up with NBC Universal (her news show Morning Joe is on MSNBC) to launch the “Know Your Value” women’s conference, a series of live events for women in Philadelphia, Washington D.C., Chicago, Boston, and Orlando. The idea is based on her 2011 best-selling biography-advice book, Knowing Your Value, and focuses on giving women tools to live a better life and build a new “movement,” she told Fortune. Each conference will consist of a daylong event focusing on coaching, networking, and mutual support to create a plan for success to help empower women. The tour kicks off in Philly on April 10.
