"Marketing Hypnosis to Schools"


Would you like to grow your business and have fun while doing it? Would you like to be able to add hundreds if not thousands of potential clients to your marketing plan? Have you ever thought of going back to SCHOOL? I don’t mean as a student, I mean “Marketing Hypnosis Programs To Schools”. In this workshop you will Identify, List and Distinguish multiple target markets in schools, different ways to prospect for school programs and a few effective marketing methods to get business and add clients from the schools that are in your own city and state.


Participants will be able to…

1)      Identify eight target markets in schools to market hypnosis programs.

2)      Identify and list types of presentations and/or programs that can be used in schools.

3)      List three ways of prospecting for school programs.

4)      Distinguish three effective methods of marketing to school and identify two ineffective methods.
