Lee did you get a reply from the mentor board yet? The only times that I've posted questions, I've had a response within 2 days.

Is this any use?

I havenít read it through as I canít be bothered but scanning down it looks relevant.

All I did was search Google for "how to write a marketing plan".

People don't search anymore

Hi Lee,

As the information in the Marketing articles hasn't been helpful, it may be a good idea to get in touch with your local LiveWIRE Co-ordinator, with whom you can arrange a meeting to discuss your needs.

Yer, I've already started that motion. But the co-ordinator that was asigned to me told me that he could not help me due to the area that I lived in. I think the saw my postcode and have asigned me to the wrong area.

I've contacted the correct area and things are on the move.


Cheers

Marketing and Promotion

Hiya,

Sorry to come in late, but aren't Marketing and Promotion two quite separate things? Promotion is only one strand of Marketing, as I understand it.

go for it....

What a fascinating debate this started :-)

I believe you can learn as you go along - if you have a natural flair for something you do not have to go to school, or wait until you have years of experience before you go it alone.

I had zero training or experience before I started in my trade just over a year ago, yet I've been off to a flying start over the last year, and have a bagful of very happy customers and more lining up.

Go for it, if you really believe you have a talent in this area. You'll soon find out if you don't :-)

Nothing ventured - nothing gained.

Someone once said to me only a year ago 'don't give up the day job' with regards to my first ventures into designing - if you want something enough and have a talent you will learn, and you will improve.

I personally believe that learning 'on the job' is the best way to go for some of us who just don't flourish or enjoy a classroom environment, and those who have put themselves in the right profession will learn very fast.

Regards

Amanda

I love this.
I seem to have a lot of people backing my thinking and some who are a little less optimistic. Saying that however all contrubutions have been taken on board.
And for all you nay sayers out there i have currently 3 clients, each and everyone loved the idea of no marketing background.

Cheers people
