What happens on the consumer journey?
Join David Pyle for this three part series where we’ll explore the
marketing funnel from top to bottom. In part two, we’re moving down the funnel. You’ve introduced yourself and made a connection with a first time customer. How do you move to the next step? How do you start the process of becoming an integral part of their creative process and a trusted partner? How do you lay the foundation for a lasting relationship? You’ll take away strategies to build touch points with your customers, place smart marketing investments, and win the in-store battle. Build your brand and your business with part one of the consumer journey.

The Essential Manager’s Toolkit Video Series:
What do YOU wish that you'd known when first starting as a manager?!?!

How do you create a dynamic, creative culture across your organization?  How can you cultivate deep community engagement that drives sales? 

NAMTA is proud to offer this video education series, The Essential Manager's Toolkit; Management Skills for the Creative Products Community, as a benefit for our members.  Created in partnership with long-time industry leader, David Pyle and his team, this 4-part series was created based upon consultation with dozens of managers in the creative products community.  We asked, "What do you wish you'd known when first starting as a manager?" This is the result...and it's all specifically tailored to the creative products community.
