Increase sales from £214,000 to £608,000 and profits by 50% by learning the same strategies Grow uses with clients, without spending a fortune!
Disclaimer: Results not typical, and every market is different, so we can’t promise you’ll have the same results! – But you can see our clients’ success stories on our testimonials page.
- You’re probably overwhelmed by the hundreds or so ways you can market your business.
- Maybe you don’t know where to start?
- Maybe you don’t test new marketing strategies because you are blinded by all the options.
Sadly, it’s all too easy to try out random marketing approaches and throw your marketing budget down the drain. Every month, we talk with entrepreneurs who’ve wasted money on marketing that doesn’t work and it makes us upset.
Whether you’re an established business or a start-up, your problems are still the same:
- What are the most effective marketing strategies to get new clients for YOUR business?
- Which marketing methods will suck your marketing budget and leave your bank account empty?
If you’re established and looking to scale, you have to find your “marketing goldmine”, which are two or three marketing methods that consistently bring in new sales without blowing your budget.
If you’re a start-up, you need to find the best marketing strategy to get new customers for your business and you need to do it fast!
You don’t have the overview of all the different marketing methods available to small businesses like a marketing expert or strategist does, and that’s normal!
The masterclass is delivered at The British Library Business & IP Centre which provides some of the best resources and training for small businesses in the UK.

11 THINGS YOU WILL LEARN DURING THE MARKETING MASTERCLASS
1. Address the key problems your customers face
You’ll increase new business inquiries by understanding and addressing the most important problems and frustrations your customers face.
Hint: This is usually not what you think! The way you write your website and sales copy will change forever after understanding this key principle. Prospective customers will feel that you really understand them, creating a personal connection, more trust and therefore more enquiries.
2. Nail down the key benefits that your customers value
Working with other entrepreneurs in the room, you’ll translate the features of your business into benefits that your customers value.
Clearly explaining the benefits of what you offer to your customers forms the foundation of your website, your email marketing, and your social media strategy.
Many entrepreneurs who do this exercise get breakthrough insights into the real benefits they offer to their customers. Grow used this approach to help create benefit-driven web pages for a personal development business, increasing new enquiries by 1,500%.
3. Transform your business by effectively targeting your ideal customers
You’ll use Grow’s Target Market Assessment Tool to identify your ideal customers.
We’ve developed this tool from 12 years of working with successful entrepreneurs.
Afterwards, you can focus your marketing efforts on your ideal customers. You’ll immediately get better results from your marketing spend and stop wasting time marketing to nightmare clients and time-wasters!
We used this assessment tool while teaching on The Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses programme. When it was time for a tea break nobody went – they were too busy using the Target Market Assessment Tool.
4. Create an incredibly attractive value proposition
Attract your ideal customers with an incredible value proposition, using Grow’s Value Proposition Creation Tool.
Having a killer value proposition means that more leads become paying clients because you’ve included everything that’s important to them in your marketing. If you are spending money on getting website traffic you MUST have a fantastic value proposition.
5. Improve the journey your customers take and make more sales
Learn how to map out the customer journey of your clients using a Harvard University methodology and make on-the-spot improvements to your customers experience of buying from you.
Most businesses have gaps in their customer’s journey from a new inquiry to a sale. You’ll identify these gaps during the masterclass so you’ll stop losing sales you should have made.
After the masterclass, one of our clients created a 20-page downloadable eBook and email follow-up sequence. Their customers now take less time to purchase and they get fewer objections due to price.
6. Learn how to get great testimonials from your happiest customers
Learn from the success of companies like TripAdvisor and Amazon whose businesses are dependent on customer recommendations.
In your workbook, you’ll get the template we use at Grow that consistently gets us great client testimonials. You can fine tune the template and get great testimonials from your customers to use on your website, email marketing and social media.
7. Make as much revenue as possible from every customer
Learn how to analyse and improve your product funnel – an entrepreneurial marketing approach ensuring that for every customer, you maximise the revenue you make from them in their lifetime. Having a great product funnel is the key to building a sustainable business that is able to grow and scale.
We helped a training organisation raise its prices consistently and increase cross selling – they’ve tripled their turnover in 3 years!
8. Learn how to create irresistible offers to attract new customers
We share examples of irresistible offers that get new customers to buy your products and services. We teach 7 proven techniques to create special offers that new customers literally can’t resist.
A dance school we worked with built their entire business on a simple irresistible offer that we’ll share with you.
9. Increase sales and inquiries with some simple changes to your website
Get traffic that is virtually free once you understand the basics of online marketing, SEO, and the 7 simple things you MUST have on your website that will dramatically increase new inquiries and sales.
Learn the 3 easy improvements you can make to your website’s call-to-actions to increase business inquiries.
10. Learn easy ways to get new clients
We’ll cover the beating heart of marketing: lead generation strategy.
You will learn several tried and tested lead generation strategies that get results for 90% of small business owners. You will learn Grow’s approach to generating new business so you can create your own marketing goldmine.
11. Learn how to hire great people so you can focus on growing your business
We will share war stories and best practice about how to successfully delegate your admin and marketing by hiring amazing freelancers and part-time staff – and most importantly how to avoid hiring duds.
Far too many entrepreneurs get so bogged down in operations and admin that they never have time to execute their marketing properly. If you cannot escape this treadmill you cannot grow your business.
Grow’s has part-time team members in Kenya, Manchester, South Africa, Wales, Ukraine and France. After our first session, a husband and wife team quickly got part-time admin support, enabling more time for high-value business development and marketing – they won multiple contracts as a result of having more time to do business development and marketing.
- You’ll get your own bound 23-page Marketing Masterclass workbook, packed with practical information, templates, step-by-step instructions, bonus content, exercises, your marketing action plan and space to make notes. Past attendees regularly tell us they still refer to their workbook 3 years later!
- You will get time to create your own marketing action plan and you will leave the masterclass with an absolute minimum of 10 practical steps to improve your marketing immediately!
- You can ask questions at any point during the masterclass. We always have valuable discussions and there’s lots of personal input from Alasdair, your masterclass leader, on your business.

This was the best and most concise workshop I have ever done
This was the best and most concise workshop I have ever done. Having attended a number of similar seminars, I was amazed by just how good this workshop was. Not only was the information taught at the perfect pace and in an informal way, so that all of the attendees could understand what was being discussed, it gave a clear structure and approach to marketing a small business.
Everyone seemed to get a lot out of it and I was extremely impressed with the content and practical advice it gave about marketing. I would recommend it to any business owner looking to give their business a boost.
