Our mission is to deliver knowledge and insight around generations that can be used to improve marketing communication and provide more meaningful relationships between your business, what you sell and who buys it.
According to an article on Mashable, 25% of all startups fail within the first year; of those remaining, 36% will fail in the second year. Of those remaining, 44% will fail in the third year and of those remaining 50% will fail in the forth year.
Why? Because business owners are so excited about what they have to offer that they don’t take the time to look objectively at the marketing side of the business.
Engage Every Age is not a traditional marketing workshop. It is a combination of knowledge and exercises that will provide you with insights about why people are wired the way they are. Why do we connect with certain messages and not others? It’s not because the marketing is bad per se; it’s more often because it wasn’t written in “your language”.
You are probably familiar with the statement, ‘We are shaped by the events around us as we grow up’. There are political, economic, and societal events that happen on a national scale which ultimately shape our perceptions throughout our lifespan.
Engage Every Age was written to get you to think. It was written to give you an opportunity to truly step back and take a look at your marketing plans with a new set of eyes.
We will share with you:
What can you expect from Engage Every Age?
You can expect to develop more clarity in your business. A clear understanding of the four generations in the market today, what events shaped them and how to communicate with them to build rapport and trust.
