Social Marketing With A TWIST

Research shows that humans have an attention span of 8 seconds, which by the way is less than goldfish. Not all businesses are exciting and fun to the naked eyes and ears and finding ways to keep people reading, watching and sharing your information can be challenging. Whether you sell burial plots or lemonade, unless you have Beyoncé drinking the lemonade and the cast of The Walking Dead hanging out at the cemetery, your 8 seconds are up!  How do you captivate your audience and keep them engaged with your business? You have to be extraordinarily creative when marketing your business online! Learn what to write in your posts/blogs, what to talk about in your videos and what to say to potential clients to get and keep them engaged. This workshop will empower business leaders, organizations and entrepreneurs to be fearless; toss inhibitions to the wind and come alive digitally!

The Success Mindset

Rhett was exhausted, nearly bankrupt, and about to call it quits in 2009—just two years after starting his first business. In this stirring talk, Rhett will share the techniques he developed to survive a recession and turn a struggling upstart into one of the fastest growing companies in America. 

After several great successes (and a few major failures), Rhett learned that significant accomplishments require focus, intentionality, and specific activity. To achieve this requires developing what he calls “The Success Mindset,” and he can walk your audience through the steps required to undergo this mindset transformation.

Don't Build A Business, Build A Religion
The Fortune 500 was only 35% of our economy in 1955. Now it's 72%! Small business is being squeezed out of existence. At the same time, consumers now crave something far beyond products and services. They crave meaning.

In this interactive workshop, Steve Faktor (Fortune 100 growth strategist, bestselling author, Forbes contributor, and LinkedIn Influencer) will:
  • Explain why customers have a newfound emptiness - and expect businesses to fill it.
  • Reveal the secret advantage small businesses have to sell meaning – and why big corporations can’t.
  • Explore successful case studies and how to use this immense power to drive extraordinary growth and profit in your business.
Exclusive for Expo attendees: Apply at growthfaktory.com/sbx for a free growth consultation with Steve - and chance to feature your business to his millions of readers. It’s coaching Steve’s startup and executive clients (like American Express, Hallmark, Intel and Samsung) depend on.

Cybersecurity - Effective, Low Cost, and Common Sense Solutions Critical To Your Small Business
Hackers don’t go after small businesses because they are targeted less than major corporations, right? Wrong. Though big businesses have their fair share of hacking attempts, there are much more on small companies! This is because hackers know that small businesses have fewer resources and often don’t put as much emphasis on security. That makes credit card numbers, secure information, and customer data theirs for the taking.
Small businesses often think themselves impervious to cyber security risks because they have less valuable information and resources than large businesses. It’s true that small businesses don’t have millions of credit card numbers on file like big box stores, but they have enough information that they’re an attractive target. Small businesses should recognize the risks that face their organizations. This workshop will help you define the threat and provide valuable advice on how to mitigate those risks.

What Is Your Business “WHY”
It's not just about the newest marketing trend. Because if you don't have a story that creates your "why" you won't have a movement, a following, a product, or service. You'll have nothing but an empty bank account, a failing business and your dream of entrepreneurship gone.

Most small business owners can tell you what they do. In fact most small business owners can probably tell you how they do it. But very few can tell you why they do what they do.

Your big WHY can't be a problem, Your big WHY needs to be a solution!

Throughout my 23 years of working in marketing I’ve had the honor of working with small startups to big name brands. One thing that I found that often frustrated me was the lack of understanding when it came to marketing, and the unwillingness to stop and re-evaluate.

My business goal is to work with other businesses. Help them bring back or discover their "why" and guide them to create their story, their movement!

This is an interactive workshop, so bring your pens, get ready to share, laugh and leave with your “why”

A Brief Introduction to Agile Scrum
According to most surveys, the trend in project management for the last few years has been towards Agile, especially the Scrum variant. Increasingly, organizations are finding that executing projects in shorter bursts - called sprints - is allowing them to not only show business value faster but also to reshape the way they do business.

However, while many organizations have heard about Agile and are being encouraged to use it at least for some projects, they often are not really sure what it is exactly. Or if they do know what it is, don’t know where to start.

In this presentation we will explain Agile with an emphasis on the most popular variant, Scrum. We’ll provide a brief history and then describe the structure and various roles that are defined. We’ll also look at what happens during a sprint and how the product and sprint backlogs factor into the equation.
