Brand Camp
Green Rising Marketing

What’s making you feel lost in your marketing?

Your Brand, your Marketing, is one of those things that feels like it should be easy; people act like it should come naturally. You try, but indecision paralyzes you, and everything sounds over-the-top, too weak, or just …sigh… weird.

So, where to start? To kickstart? To Re-Start?

You’ve got the passion, you love what you do, and hell, quite frankly, the world needs you. (If only they knew about you.)

Enter Green Rising. Why pay big, fancy agency fees, when DIY is way more fun? We’ll teach you everything we know (and can fit into 2 days), so you can up your game, get focused, and share your inner powerhouse with the rest of the world.

You deserve it.

On day 1 of Brand Camp you’ll learn how to:

…articulate the WHY of what you do …find your best customers …stand. out.

How can we top that?

On day 2, you’ll learn how to:

…carry out your vision on your own terms with the basics of marketing and social media (insta-what?), and make real, live connections to experts in graphic design, web design, photography and more. -Learn + Do = Marketing ready-to-go

You will work intensively to sharpen your marketing tools and tactical implementation, all while making great connections within a small class size. Be prepared to have homework every week and really get to know your business in a new way.

When: Nov. 5th (session 1) & Nov. 19th (session 2)

Where: 1306 NW Hoyt St. #300, Portland, OR 97209

Anvil Media

Seminar attendees will learn how to define their brand, define their target audience(s), anticipate their audience’s decision making process, and foster brand evangelists for their company. Presentation will be followed by a brief Q&A.

Read The 5 Stages of Getting To Know Your Audience for a taste of some of the topics which will be covered.
