“The biggest challenge I have is Web Marketing – it’s hard to tell who’s real and who isn’t. And even harder to decide what to do myself or hire out. Everyone pretends to have a magic formula that can drive unforeseen levels of search traffic, while raking in leads. It’s difficult to know what ACTUALLY works.”

Sound like you? If so, don’t panic! An astounding number of NALP members just finished reading that same quote and wondered if they contributed parts of it!

So here’s the good news. NALP and Market Hardware have decided to partner up on a regional workshop, coined “NALP Web Marketing Coaching Day,” designed to help you understand everything from basic Web Marketing fundamentals, all the way to the most intricate, new, and timely strategies. But, because of some bad weather we decided it was better to offer this great presentation as a webinar. It’s our intention that you’ll take away a few nuggets of gold that will help you this coming season.
