Business planning helps us to think ahead to identify and avoid future issues and more importantly discover and explore new opportunities.

A good business plan creates a clear vision and roadmap for each business, which can be a vital tool when seeking finance, leasing premises, getting permits and engaging staff.

In just two hours, this workshop will help participants to navigate through the business planning process, create a clear one-page plan for their business and will introduce participants to the business frameworks that will help to fast-track their success.

Understanding Marketing
Wednesday, 22 February 2017
9:30 AM - 11:30 AM
Small Business Victoria logo
Many businesses think marketing is about having a website, a Facebook page and placing advertisements in the local paper. While these are all marketing activities, to market effectively businesses must think a lot broader and apply a ‘customer-focused mindset’ to all aspects of their business. An effective marketing action plan is an essential tool to help businesses attract and retain a loyal customer base.

In this interactive 2-hour workshop, an experienced marketing professional will share their insight to help participants set marketing goals, learn more about their customers, clarify their Unique Selling Proposition and use this to help choose the right marketing activities for their business. They will also learn how to measure the success of their marketing activities, to track achievements against their business goals.
