Motivational speaker Zig Ziglar said, "You can have everything in life you want, if you will just help others get what they want."

This has never been more true than today. In an increasingly competitive marketplace filled with people willing to do whatever it takes to make a dollar, your business must find a way to break through the noise and make a difference people will remember.

In this workshop, attendees will learn how to build their brand and establish themselves as an authority by first finding ways to help others.

Presenter Evan Pettrey is the founder of Valley Inbound Marketing. Evan is a serial entrepreneur whose passion for marketing was sparked out of necessity when he invented a baby product after the birth of his daughter. Having invested his savings in the product launch, he was faced with a harsh reality - he'd created an amazing product new parents loved...but nobody knew existed.
Flush out of cash after bringing the product to market, Evan had two choices: fail or learn everything he possibly could about digital marketing and grow this business himself.  Since then, he's founded a number of marketing companies in various industries with a single, unifying goal: helping businesses realize their growth and objectives, profitably, while learning and having fun in the process.
