Hello Marketing my old friend

Providing a more in-depth understanding of what it truly is and why it is imperative for companies to incorporate marketing as part of the core foundation of the business. The fourth industrial revolution is here and all companies need to embrace it and go digital with websites and social media. The trick is your digital efforts need to be developed strategically from a good solid overall marketing plan and strategy. We will also look at and explore the various different marketing channels available and learn how to work smart, not expensively hard.
Good marketing is within the reach of all businesses.

Last network for 2019, With Sylvia Walker.

Topic: Balance for Better – getting the numbers right

Synopsis:

What’s the secret to having it all? It’s not abundant wealth, as we are told so often. It’s about balance in our lives and working with what we have. Understanding where money fits in, and knowing how to balance today with tomorrow, because decisions made today has a direct impact on our lives tomorrow. Some of the burning issues are:

– What are the distractions that keep us focused on today?
– How do we free up money to invest?
– Should we pay off debt first before investing?
– How much should we be investing?
– Where should we be investing?

Sylvia will discuss these, and any other issues raised, in a simple, straightforward way, cutting through the jargon and smoke and mirrors that is so prevalent today.

How to WIN at Buisness, our topic for October at Avontuur Business Club with Lindie Malan.

“How To WIN at Business” 

Your business is your “vehicle of choice” towards your desired future…

Some real questions all business owners should ask themselves…

How will my business look when it is done? Do I have an exit strategy? Will I be able to sell my business? Can we expand or will I be able to hand over and exit?

Are you exhausted by running your business, challenged by crisis management, cash flow issues and managing an ineffective team?

Lindie’s life purpose is to work with business owners to address these questions and other business challenges so that they can win at the game of business!


Lindie is an experienced entrepreneur, business owner, business coach and event speaker. Her 25-year journey in business includes involvement in a family business, a partnership and several successful start-up business ventures.”Being a business owner taught me a few hard lessons like perseverance, to focus and to understand the importance of building a business with real value. Giving up on myself, my goals and dreams has never been an option. I lead from the front and I am congruent in everything I teach and coach my clients!”Lindie’s love for business, her belief in the power of coaching and her drive to change the way entrepreneurs do business, led her to become an ActionCOACH business coach. She has coached more than 100 business owners in various industries on many levels towards achieving significant business results.

Understanding the cost of advertising, Business breakfast topic with Chrisitelle Lochner.

Understanding the cost of advertising:

Most of us have a love-hate relationship with advertising, because we have no clue which avenues are the best to choose from.

Between printed media, pay-per-click, direct marketing and vehicle or shop signage, it can be confusing to figure out which would be most valuable.

The aim of this talk is to help you to understand how to break down the cost of each of these types of advertising into a cost per impression, and help you to understand which are most likely to generate sales for your business now and over time

Business Breakfast with Jean Muir, this August at Avontuur.

Join us for our next Business Breakfast with Jean Muir who will be covering all things financial…
She will spend time giving you pointers in financial planning and how it ties into your business financials.
Specifically:
– Budgeting
– Paying me (the entrepreneur, you)
– How to safeguard my assets
– What’s this thing called risk cover
– Why we build relationships with financial advisors
 
 
Please bring a pen and paper, make sure you know how much you are currently earning. (If it varies, take the average of the last 6 months.)
Why come to meet Jean? She says ;
 
When I started as a young financial advisor, I had dreams to cure poverty and to assist everyone with their financial future. However, I was hard struck when I realised poverty is only part of our problems. Our health is a bigger issue.
 
I quickly learned that life throws us with curveballs we don’t expect. Most of us don’t believe it will happen to us and then we try and put our life together piece by piece.
 
My life mission is to assist my clients, family and friends by asking them the questions most of us don’t want to comprehend or think about.
 
I assist you with holistic financial tips, starting with how does a budget work, how we pay off debt and how we know our biggest asset is secured should we get the bad news.
 
If you would like tips on how your reality can be changed, how you can think about your business and personal finance this morning is for you.
 
I am looking forward to hosting you.’
Please note there is only a limited number of seats, as it is a seated networking event which includes breakfast. So, book your seat and invite someone with, who you know would like to take hold of their financial planning.

Goal Setting with Sonja McKaiser Business Club May 2019

I’m Sonja McKaiser, a coffee-fuelled soulpreneur, and owner of
The Creative Space with Sonja.

I help my clients write their own narrative, through interactive workshops (and one-on-one coaching sessions) that are designed to unlock creativity, define goals, and unleash expression. Using tools such as vision boarding and expressive writing, my clients learn to take charge of their own stories, changing their lives in the process. When I’m not working, I enjoy taking my dogs for walks on the beach and visiting new markets in and around Cape Town.

Goal setting

  • Getting clear on what you want – soul goals ;
