Are you ready to find out what’s really going on with your marketing?

Marketing Diagnostic: What you need to know now

A marketing diagnostic will uncover what's going on with your marketingWhat is a marketing diagnostic session?

A marketing diagnostic session is an evaluative meeting in which we identify the strengths, weaknesses, and opportunities of your current situation or plans. This 45-minute meeting will uncover the key metrics and significant information that determines your potential for success.

Imagine going to the doctor to find out why you feel tired, sluggish, or you have headaches all the time. Your doctor asks you a lot of questions, weighs you, takes your temp, and then gives you her diagnosis, followed by a prescription (which could include changes in diet, exercise, vitamins, or even drugs or surgery).

That is exactly what this meeting is like but you get to keep your clothes on, and there are no scales or thermometers to worry about. We look at what’s going on, what’s wrong, and then you get a prescription for how to fix the problems.

Please note that we don’t “fix the problem” in this meeting, rather we identify the real problems as well as the solution(s). Some fixes are easy, but most will take time, attention, and effort to get on track.




Totally. Risk. Free. If after the marketing diagnostic we decide to work together fees from this session will be totally applicable towards a Marketing Kick Start Coaching Program.
