Have you ever experienced a period overwhelmed with business followed by a complete slow down because you were too busy to find new customers? A Weekend Marketing Plan can help. This presentation will give you the overview to create a long term marketing plan and the tools needed to implement it as well. With a focus on reaching a residential remodeling market, this session will teach attendees how to get their marketing in line with their schedule and show them ways to keep their clients coming in on a regular basis.

From years of “in the trenches” experience, Joe will use real world examples to illustrate the tools of both online and traditional marketing.

Joe Cain is the President of Mio Metals in Petaluma, one of America’s  leading manufacturers of copper, brass or zinc countertops and range hoods.
