I’ve set aside an hour a week in my schedule to personally audit your marketing.
It will take me about 90 minutes. I’ll do it on Zoom, recorded for you, and email the results to you and your Marketing Consultant you’re working with here at Vyral Marketing.
I would like to post your results, and the recording itself, on our blog publicly.
We have a plan to do this automatically for all clients from time to time privately, too.
If you’d like to request your audit happen faster, ask your Vyral Marketing Consultant. I can do about 40 audits a year myself, while our trained supervisors will do the remainder for you.
Here is a rough outline of the checklist I will follow when I review it all.
It’s just about everything we teach here at Vyral Marketing according to our core marketing service to help you get more sales from your database.
