Hirsch’s Meadowdale recently hosted their monthly Business Networking Morning with over 20 dynamic entrepreneurs ready to network and talk business with likeminded people.
Guest Speaker for the morning, Natalie Maree, spoke about The Benefits of Advertising. Natalie is the Group Sales Manager for Caxton Local Media near East and South. She’s been with Caxton for 10 years and has a passion for people, sales and advertising. She previously managed the sales team of the Autodealer motoring supplement before moving over to manage sales in the main body of Caxton’s publications and websites. This has given her great insight into the challenges and needs of various types of businesses but most importantly how strong the overall need for advertising is.
Natalie expressed how advertising is an important investment that needs to be included in the annual budget of any business. “Advertising enables organizations to tell what products and services they provide, to reach out to prospective customers, and pull new customers while keeping you top of mind with current customers. Every time you pick up a newspaper or go online, you’ll be exposed to advertising by businesses who understand the importance of marketing.” She said.
After Natalie’s talk each of the networkers were given the opportunity to present themselves and their business in a 30-second ‘elevator pitch ’, followed by some lucky draws, networking, sharing of business cards and enjoying breakfast snacks..
