Let's face it, downtown businesses and community members look to you to provide them with solutions to help their business. There is pressure for community leaders and associations such as Chambers and TDAs to provide training and education for businesses on how to market their product or service. That where we come in.
Lunchplate is jam packed with information, industry terminology, and ready to implement actions that make it easy for small businesses to implement a successful marketing plan. Plus we include ideas specific to rural communities and the challenges they face.
Our course takes a fresh perspective to marketing and instead of giving you a run down of things you can do that may help, we take it a step further and teach you how to think like a marketer. We dive deep into each lesson. We explain what each component is, why it's important to a business and how to connect all the components together for a complete meal plan that will fuel their success for years to come.Explore Training Options
The Lunchplate Marketing course contains lessons on the following components:

The right mix of fruit and veggies are needed for a healthy diet, the same applies to advertising. A mix of print, digital and social will do your business good.
PR accentuates the good and washes down the bad, similar to how a fine wine pairs with a meal or a drink clears your palette.
We all like dessert, but lets face it, we don't all need it. The same can be said for business collateral. Learn what works best.
Just like salt and pepper or a little dash of garlic, your brand adds flavor. It goes on everything and is unique to the business.
Each tool serves a purpose, just like utensils. Find out what tools work best and how to cut through all the data to measure success.
