Marketing without Social Media

Thursday, November 17 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm • Organized By THE PLEASURE PLAYGROUND
1520 Clay St, North Kansas City, MO 64116


Is it really possible to run a successful business, find clients and customers and earn money … without using social media? Yes! In this workshop, you'll receive a series of small-but-powerful marketing assignments (including snail mail, personal emails, newsletters, texts and unexpected acts of generosity) to build strong professional relationships, get clients and bring revenue in the door! Social media, not required.

Social media is not good or bad -- it is a tool and as an entrepreneur, you get to decide how to or if you want to use it. 

There’s been a huge amount of interest in this topic—much more than I ever could have imagined. A lot of entrepreneurs are exhausted by social media and would very much like to leave it behind or reduce their amount of time on it. I hope this class feels like a permission slip to run your business in whatever way feels best to you.

Upon finishing this class, you might choose to quit social media forever. Or you might choose to keep Instagram but delete Facebook. Or you may choose to firm up boundaries and reduce the amount of time you spend online. Whatever decisions you make, I congratulate you. ♥
