"Opening a new hair salon, I didn't have a lot of money to spend on marketing - that's why I truly appreciated the simple, inexpensive marketing advice from The Marketing Chefs on how to get new customers. Better yet, the ideas really worked!"
John Ricardi, Co-owner, Mynt Salon, Burlington, Ontario
So, you've got this passion for starting a venture from scratch. Congratulations.
But...how do you market your new business? How should you position yourself against competitors? How do you find customers? What basic ingredients go into a marketing plan that can help your new venture rise to the top?
Not to worry, you've come to the right place to mix practical business knowledge with something unexpected: a bit of culinary advice.
Market yourself better and you'll taste success faster
It doesn't matter whether you intend to market your products or services online or offline (or both.) Whether you're an advisor, broker, builder, caretaker, creator, owner or seller, virtually every new entrepreneur faces the same challenges to get his or her business up and running. Including the big challenge of how to make the most of a limited marketing budget.
That's where The Marketing Chefs can help.
From our work with large companies like Wrigley, Chrysler and Molson, and our experience with multinational advertising agencies that charge hundreds of thousands of dollars for their marketing "vision", we learned some important food for thought: It's not how much you spend, it's how smart you think. And how dedicated you are to combining your passion with expert advice to create a success.
The Marketing Chefs show how easy it is to be more successful in branding and marketing your business. We help you:
- Brand your company, product or service
- Develop logos, taglines and branding materials
- Define, target and reach customers
- Determine what you need for an effective website
- Use publicity to effectively promote your business
- Prepare effective online and offline marketing campaigns
- Write brochures, sales letters, press releases and more...
- Understand online marketing tips, tools and best practices
- Make you more money, faster, with less effort
You're invited to participate in a variety of Lunch 'n Learn virtual teleseminars on topics that range from How to Generate FREE Publicity to How to Turn Online Visitors into Paying Customers. You can participate in these one-hour sessions from the comfort of your home or office.
We conduct many of our inspiring marketing workshops at "The Cookworks", one of Toronto's finest cooking/teaching restaurants run by Donna Dooher, a professional chef, cookbook author and HGTV host. (And a really nice person.)
When you sign up one of these full-day workshops, you'll enjoy a lot of meaty learning in just a few short hours. Because the classes are small and interactive you'll have a chance to share your marketing experiences and exchange ideas with other like-minded entrepreneurs.
Better yet, you'll get the opportunity, over lunch, to release your inner chef, and learn a few new recipes and cooking techniques from some of Toronto's most adventurous chefs.
What to bring to the workshops
So bring your enthusiasm. Your business cards. And your appetite. Especially your appetite.
