Course Objective:

In the final Ask the Experts live virtual Q&A session of the year, our panel is tackling a key topic to help you get 2024 off to a hot start: marketing. With so many changes in SEO, PPC and the Google algorithm, questions around marketing never stop. With limited budgets and an everchanging landscape, it is critical to know how and where to spend to drive the highest return on investment possible.

In the first half of this session, our panel will walk through the best strategies to ensure you put your marketing dollars in the right place to support your business and brand. You’ll get answers to common questions including:

  1. How should I split my marketing budget to promote installs vs service calls?
  2. Is it better to go with traditional marketing, digital marketing or a combination of both?
  3. Should I increase or decrease marketing spend during the shoulder season?
  4. What are some low cost strategies to get to the top of Google?

And as always, bring your own questions! Whether on marketing or any other subject where you could use guidance, the second-half of this session will be an open-forum Q&A dedicated to giving you the answers to the specific questions and challenges you’re facing in your business right now. Attend this Ask the Experts session and get the strategy in place to make 2024 your most successful year yet.
