Marketing Mastermind

Master the art of marketing your business

Welcome to Marketing Mastermind - an exclusive 12-month accountability-driven marketing training and mentoring programme aimed at business owners who have the responsibility for marketing and business growth.

If you're a business owner who would like to master the art of marketing for your own business and would like the help and support of people who have years of marketing experience, then look no further!

We're delighted to announce the launch of our brand new inner-circle Marketing Mastermind group.

This is a new 12-month programme and is driven by a series of 12 full-day face-to-face sessions with up to ten business owners from a range of industries and sectors.

The group will meet monthly from September 2019 at one of the prestigious pitch-facing executive boxes at Southampton Football Club.

Meetings will take place from 10am and will finish around 3pm.

Each member will get the opportunity to sit in a hot-seat session each month, in which the entire group will focus their energy, support and ideas on you and your marketing campaigns. You will also have the chance to learn new marketing strategies and develop your marketing skills. You will also be shown marketing tools which you can use in your business to help save you time and money.

A buffet lunch, refreshments, tea and coffee are also provided each month.

Marketing Mastermind Package

  • Monthly Mastermind Meetings - We'll meet once a month to produce and implement a strategic, goal-driven marketing plan and to discuss ideas and learn new marketing hacks
  • Marketing Training - Learn how to become a master marketeer and use smart strategies to achieve results and a return on your marketing investments
  • Marketing Critiques - Bring your marketing literature to our monthly meetings and we'll give you constructive feedback to help you get better results from your marketing materials
  • Accountability - If you say you're going to do something by a certain deadline, we'll make sure you keep the promises you make to yourself
  • Access to our Facebook Group - Get exclusive access to our private Marketing Mastermind Facebook group to build relationships with other members and to share ideas and ask for feedback or suggestions
  • 1-2-1 coaching - We'll keep in regular contact with you between meetings to find out how you're getting on with implementing the ideas and strategies we help you develop in the group
  • Access to our Network - It's no secret that we're well connected, so if you need any help to reach our to certain businesses, we'll make the introductions you need

Investment
The fee to join Marketing Mastermind is not cheap (as it shouldn't be), but neither is it prohibitive. We fully expect members to look back at the end of the 12-month programme and conclude that it was the smartest investment they have made in their business and themselves.

Monthly Payments - £275+VAT
Annual Payment - £2,500+VAT

Mastermind Bonus: Your Marketing Mastermind fee includes a 12-month subscription to our Exposure Marketing and Networking Package worth £1,200 a year and a 1m x 2m shell scheme stand package at either of our flagship business shows including the Southampton Business Expo in November or Reading Business Expo in February.
