Project Description

The Smarketing Institute is a Boston area sales and marketing resource. We connect LOCAL sales and marketing experts to LOCAL Start-ups and small businesses. 

 

Our sales and marketing contributors share advice and resources including articles, whitepapers, tutorials and tools.  They collaborate on workshops and are available for projects - either individually or partnered with other contributors. 

 

Start-ups and small business owners can search our community of contributors for tangible solutions to their sales and marketing challenges.  They can participate in workshops, find vetted professionals, and build a local support network.  They can reach out through us, or directly to the contributors for advice and solutions.

 

The Smarketing Institute reaches thousands of local business owners every week through an opt-in weekly email including sales and marketing articles and tips.  We attend local networking events to promote our community, our contributors, and to expand our reach.  We have an active social media presence including weekly: Sales/Marketing Polls, Interpretation of a Quote, Sales Tips, Marketing Tips and Fact or Fiction Friday. 

 

Are you a start-up or small business looking for local sales and marketing help?  Check out the Smarketing Institute.  Are you a sales or marketing consultant looking to build your network and expand your reach?  Check out the Smarketing Institute.  We connect local businesses to local experts.
