Designed for the busy business real estate professional, BlacTtie Marketing Group’s workshops in Marketing and Social Media take an in-depth look at marketing, branding, communications, and social media. The proper use of all four contributes greatly to the success of an individual or organization. Since the goal is to make your product or service widely known and recognized within the industry, marketers must be creative in their marketing activities. In this competitive nature of many businesses, getting your product noticed is not that easy.
