There are businesses that don’t chase clients, clients chase them. There are businesses that use disruption as an excuse to reinvent themselves and relaunch to fanfare. These businesses didn’t achieve this by accident, they carefully engineered a formula for getting their brand into this enviable position. Apple, Rolex, Goldman Sachs and Amazon are masters of these techniques.

Ultimately, the businesses that make the most profit are the ones that maintain demand and supply tension. These brands don’t leave things to chance, they build a marketing system around staying oversubscribed. Learn how to adopt these best practices and start building a line up of new business that stretches around the block. This workshop will be a rapid fire class in relaunching and driving the success of your business with powerful campaigns in 2021.
