About this masterclass

If you’re serious about marketing strategy and not just ‘doing’ marketing, then the Build methodology is for you.

Build is a strategic programme featuring educational content, interactive, actionable workshops and a community for business owners serious about marketing. It’s designed to help you unlock the strategy and systems you need to deliver powerful marketing campaigns that work by guiding you to deploy the foundations required to deliver consistent results – whatever challenges and changes you’re facing.

No hacks, quick fixes, shortcuts or waffle.

Build is all about the hard work you need to do if you’re serious about driving your business forward. It’s about channelling that hard work effectively, so you’re not just busy, you’re doing the activity that matters in a way that makes a difference.

Build empowers you to develop clarity, consistency, structure, long term thinking and attention to detail (yes, we think sweating the small stuff matters).

Build is more than just a programme that gets your business ready to create impactful marketing campaigns. It is a practical methodology and a campaign mindset that gives you the tools, the strategy, and the accountability to make it happen.

During this masterclass we’ll guide you through the fundamentals of the Build methodology:

B: B is for the 'building blocks'. We'll make sure you have solid foundations in place so all your marketing campaigns efficiently and systematically deliver on their objectives.

U: U is for ‘understand’. We'll guide you through the power of a ‘campaign mindset’, help you find your business’s ‘SO WHAT?’ factor, and help you understand what you need to put in place to create tangible results.

I: I is for 'interrogate'. It’s about digging deep into your audience, messaging, channels, resources, skillsets, and reporting. You’ll learn to make sound decisions based on meaningful research, taking the stress, delay & back and forth out of decision making.

L: L is for ‘launch’ and ‘layer’. It’s about planning, processes, people and performance. Get ready to implement campaigns that create the energy and momentum to drive your business forward.

D: D is for ‘data’ and ‘delving deeper’. We’ll share our approach to testing, deployment and learning, meaning you can spend time gathering the most important data and making informed decisions. Essentially creating a culture of continuous improvement and maximised performance.
