Attracting new prospects and maintaining relationships with existing customers are two very important functions that allow women entrepreneurs to grow their business. Keeping your brand in front of your target audience is the best way to generate interest and excitement, leading to increased sales and greater customer loyalty.

Everyone in business has an area of expertise. For many, marketing is not one of them  but it doesnt have to be a barrier to entry! Putting together a simple plan, with the right mix of activities to fit your budget, is an effective way to boost your brand presence and increase your sales without having to know everything there is to know about marketing.

At the Women TIES Greater Binghamton Luncheon: "The 5-Step Marketing Plan" sponsored by the Women's Business Center of New York State, Lee Ann Capogrossi, a marketing specialist from Ithaca, NY, will spend 30 minutes helping you build a successful marketing plan for the New Year! Shell also explain the key principles of marketing, why having a marketing plan is important, how to choose the right marketing activities for your audience, and even share some ideas with you on how to market your business without even spending any money!

Lee Ann is a long time member of Women TIES and has presented marketing programs at other events that our members have truly enjoyed. Don't miss this chance to educate yourself on marketing and sales as you prepare for a new business year.

The event is co-sponsored by the Women's Business Center of New York State and the Binghamton Reporter.

Please learn more about the Women's Business Center at www.nywbc.org and The Binghamton Reporter at www.thereportergroup.org.

Tuesday, December 9, 2014
11:30 a.m. - 2 p.m.
Chesterfield's Restaurant, 1714 Bleeker Street, Utica, NY

Reservations due:  December 6

$29.00  (Promotion, Sales, Lunch, Education and Inspiration )

Women entrepreneurs can have the best consultations and conversations with prospective clients and yet not land the sale. Customers seem excited about what you are offering and are in high need of your product or service but when its time to commit to a contract, they say they cant afford it. Women are left wondering what can they do to shift the prospects thinking.

At this special Women TIES Mohawk Valley Luncheon and Holiday Showcase, Joleene Moody of JoleeneSpeaks!, will share with women why prospects say no, how to ask the right questions to find out what is causing their negative response and then help move them to a place where they say yes! This will be a highly engaging presentation that will help you learn why your prospects hit the terror barrier and what you can do to pull them out and get them to buy from you. This is a perfect sales program as women entrepreneurs prepare their sales plans and perspective for the new business year.

It is holiday time so we will have tables set up around the room for holiday promotion and marketing. We love when women buy from each other and make money. Come ready to sell and buy.

We are looking for another co-sponsor of this program. Contact the Women TIES office for more information at 315-708-4288.

About the Presenter

Joleene is a client closing expert, a down-to-earth business coach, and a really remarkable speaker. She is a certified strategic interventionist, trained by the Robbins-Madanes Institute out of California. Despite her past sales experience selling satellite dishes and mortgages, Joleene credits her authentic ability to close a sale from her days as a television reporter and anchor. Ask her about it. It's a really great story.

With over twenty years experience on the stage and behind the camera, setting up shop in front of hundreds of people is second nature to this stellar speaker. With her no-nonsense comedic approach, Joleene not only captures audiences immediately, but she's able to teach her clients how to do the same. Fear of the stage? Joleene can guide one to abolish it -- and show up strong and confident.

Part of the proceeds benefit Father Champlin's Guardian Angel Society. The Guardian Angel Society is an organization that raises funds to help support the education of children from diverse cultural, religious and economic backgrounds.

Nearly 15 years ago, Father Champlin realized that too many children in need were not graduating from high school. He desperately wanted to stop the cycle of poverty for these kids by helping them receive a quality education based on a strong set of values. In 1997, he started the Guardian Angel Society and charged it with the mission of raising funds for tuition assistance and providing mentor relationships for the children so that they would enjoy academic success. Since its inception, so many of Father’s kids have continued on to distinguished universities such as Georgetown, Notre Dame, University of Pittsburgh, Le Moyne College, Syracuse University, and Niagara University, to name a few.

Please come out and enjoy this holiday special with your family, friends and loved ones.

About the Presenter

From our first performance at Lincoln Auditorium on May 22, 1947 to the the current season, the Mario DeSantis Orchestra continues to share its love of all musical styles from Jazz to Contemporary with Central New York audiences.

Mario DeSantis attributes the staying power of the orchestra first to the quality musicians who have shared their talent over the years, and secondly to the special orchestrations which are continuously updated and custom written for the orchestra's unique instumentation by Jay Owen and Joe Riposo. This years shows feature over 30 new arrangements including traditional big band, 'new era' swing, medleys, and listening and dance selections from the 60's to today.
