Virtual Marketing Mentor Hour



You’re doing work that you find meaningful and you want your business to reach as many of your ideal clients as possible, but how?

I’d love to answer your marketing questions and help you get a steady stream of cool clients.

I’ve hosted Marketing Mentor Hour events in person in Amsterdam but not everybody can meet me there.

And many of you said you would love to attend a Virtual event, so here it is.

Let’s meet virtually online with an intimate group of passionate entrepreneurs online and I’ll answer your burning questions during the Virtual Marketing Mentor Hour.

All you need in order to join us is a computer with an internet connection and a microphone (built in or external). You won’t have to download any software, all you’ll have to do is click on a link in an email I’ll send you to join our private online meeting. You’ll be able to see me via my webcam and you can use your webcam to let us see you or you can join us with only your voice, up to you.

Virtual Marketing Mentor Hour

I’ll kick things off during the first 10 minutes with a brief overview of my free report, 7 Steps to Attract More Clients in Less Time, which will provide a framework for our discussion.

If you don’t already have a copy, be sure to get yours here: 7 Steps to Attract More Clients in Less Time and read it before the event.

Then it’s your turn to ask me questions about how to market and grow your business and I’ll answer them on the spot.

You’ll learn from other people’s questions (because many times they’re the same questions you’ve been pondering) as well as your own.

After our get-together, I’ll send everyone an email with a list of the resources I mention.

I will limit the number of business owners to 10 keep it cozy and make sure everyone has a chance to ask their question.

And I’m keeping the investment super low at only 22 euro (about $28 USD) to make it a no-brainer for you to join. And this event could ultimately be free for you because if you invest in any of my products or services within the next 6 months, I’ll deduct the 22 euro ($28 USD) from the price.

We’ll meet virtually on Tuesday, November 4th at 10:00 am (Dutch time). Find out what time that is for you here.

Got questions? Send me an email at stephanie@fireflycoaching.com. Hope to see you there!

* There won’t be any refunds, if you register and it turns out you can’t make it you’re welcome to transfer your ticket to a friend.

** You’re welcome to attend this event even if you’ve attended a previous event.

** You will receive instructions about how to attend once you’ve registered. All you will need is a computer, an internet connection, and a microphone (built in or external).
