Angela Pointon - " How to Create a Killer Marketing Plan"

Making a marketing plan doesn’t have to be a daunting experience that you put off for months on end! In fact 

creating a killer plan and being motivated to actually execute marketing each week is easier than you think!

You’ll learn:

-How to build a tactical marketing plan you’ll actually follow

Angela is an expert in creating businesses that clients glide toward like magnets.

She spent seven proud years as the Chief Operating Officer of a rapidly growing marketing agency and 

worked with over 250 multi-million dollar businesses helping them create a steady flow of leads. While there 

she was one of the first people to ever be trained on HubSpot’s groundbreaking inbound marketing software, 

and the agency later went on to win the elite spot as HubSpot’s only Diamond agency partner. Before that, 

she worked in marketing departments at other agencies while schlepping to graduate school at night for her

Jeff Jochum- "Effortless Selling: The Art of Being Bought"

Jeff will show you how to effortlessly triple your sales revenues without resorting to "salesy" tactics, how 

to spot the difference between a "bargainer" and an "exclusive" (and why just knowing this can triple your 

profits), and how to create an irrational desire in new customers to buy from you in the first 15 seconds.

Jeff believes in magic, and science, and mostly what happens when you bring the two together. Over the last 30 years, he founded, bootstrapped and sold three companies of his own, licensing products to Computer Associates, Borland, and Microsoft. In 1997, he co-founded, and created e-Biz in a Box, 1999’s best-selling (non-Microsoft) small business product. Since then, 

Jeff has had the privilege of leading the marketing teams at (acquired by equity giant Apax Ventures for $39 million) and then as Chief Marketing Officer at online superstars 

DeviantART & SmugMug. In 2009, he began working with start-ups and creative entrepreneurs, coaching them to success using some of the secrets I'll present in this class.
