Who Should Attend Elevate Marketing Summit


Do you own, manage or help promote a small business (or want to some day)? Do you need to reach more customers? Do you want to take charge of your brand and reputation? Then—yes!—you should attend. Taking part in Elevate Marketing Summit will help you:

  • Reach more customers in a cost effective way
  • Learn consistent strategies that allow you to take control of your marketing
  • Diversify and expand your content on a small budget
  • Better understand how content marketing can support your business goals
  • Develop a strategy for content creation, execution and delivery

Why You Need to Attend This March


You Need a Content Marketing Strategy—and You Need It Now!

Did you know…

  • Content marketing brings in 3X more leads than paid search advertising (Content Marketing Institute, 2017)
  • Almost HALF of buyers viewed 3 to 5 pieces of content before engaging with a company’s sales rep (Demand Gen Report, 2016)
  • Google is responsible for 94% of total organic traffic (Web Presence Solutions, 2017)
  • 47% of internet users globally now use an ad blocker—meaning businesses need to find new ways to get seen (Digital Information World, 2019)

Content marketing is NOT advertising: it is creating informative, desirable information that people want to consume. It is helping your customer solve a problem, ease an anxiety, learn something they want to know, and become better equipped to do the things they want to do. In return, your customer puts trust in you, promotes you to their friends, and turns to you when they’re ready to take action.

The Elevate community is growing, and now includes attendees from a wide range of small businesses and specializations. What connects this community of passionate business owners is a deep belief in the value of what we make and do—and the drive to always be seeking the audiences who will recognize that value.

Join us for March 2020, and learn how to build a streamlined content marketing strategy that works.

"I heard such great things about it I had to sign up!"
