In this episode of the Driven Female Entrepreneurs Podcast, I speak with Melissa Ambers.
Melissa started her business when she found that she was the go-to person in her network for conversations about marketing and branding. When her research showed a gap in the market for a source of marketing support and development for newer businesses, she launched The Marketing Studio, which focuses on business development and branding.
She later started Savvy the Business Magazine and Podcast, to bring the entrepreneurial community high-quality information, while also giving her clients an opportunity to share their insights and expertise in valuable ways.
Listen to this episode to hear Melissa's tips for business building, marketing and the simple way to plan your way to success.
It's key to have somebody to talk through your business plans with. Someone with an external perspective works best. - Melissa Ambers
In this value-packed episode you'll learn:
- When it makes most sense for new business to start investing in their marketing, and what they need to know and have in place first.
- Simple way to plan your way to success, with the help of a wall.
- What and when to outsource.
- What you need to consider in your business and marketing post-COVID.
- Why it's important not to feel under pressure to pursue all your business ideas immediately. Some will suit you and your business better later.
...and so much more!
Right now, since COVID, every business has to pivot. Take a close look at your business and if you're not sure what or how to change, speak with a consultant so you can move forward with confidence. - Melissa Ambers
