What’s in your modern marketing mix?

I wanted to put this topic on the table due to conversations I’ve had with many women in small in enterprise over time. Anecdotally,  it seems that many business people (women in particular) are still to do the ‘mind shift’ from using ineffective traditional marketing to a more modern approach which utilises online marketing, as well as some highly effective traditional methods. Two things are true … firstly, every enterprise needs to utilise modern marketing methods in this technological age and secondly, every enterprise needs to design and implement a plan that is as unique as their enterprise is. This was the first event in the series we’ve put together for the year. Read on to see what guests had to say.
