About this Event

KEYNOTE SPEAKER: JON SCHALLERT - "ISN'T IT TIME YOU REINVENT YOURSELF INTO A CONSUMER DESTINATION"

We are pleased to bring you, Jon Schallert, the only consultant in the world teaching businesses and communities how to turn themselves into Consumer Destinations. Schallert speaks to thousands annually on his trademarked 14-step “Destination Business” process, which he developed after speaking in over 500 communities and interviewing over 10,000 independent business owners. Prior to starting his company, Jon spent ten years with greeting card giant Hallmark Cards, where his original marketing strategies were publicized throughout the company as “The Schallert Method”.

When Jon is not speaking around the country, he conducts his 2½ day Destination Business BootCamp in Colorado, teaching his 14-step strategy to turn businesses and communities into Consumer Destinations. Jon is also the founder of the online training network, DestinationUniversity.com.

Jon’s insight is frequently seen in national publications such as The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, and his company’s magazine, Successful Independent Business.

Jon will share with you examples of achieving great success, and how you can become a Consumer Destination, too!

In this engaging and entertaining four hour workshop, Canadian Badland Tourism conference attendees will learn how to apply Jon’s 14-step trademarked Destination strategy to individual businesses within their communities, immediately helping them attract more consumers from both the local area and from well outside their marketplace.

Here are some of the highlights you’ll learn at this workshop:

• How to capture tourists and consumers that naturally avoid advertising, and make your enterprise appeal to them immediately.

• How to get customers to see your business differently in the first 7 seconds they hear about, approach, or enter your business.

• How most advertising and marketing dollars are wasted, and how you can create sales and customer traffic increases using techniques that are low cost and more believable to than most forms of advertising.

• How to target and attract the most profitable customers with specific marketing tools that have a measurable return-on-investment.

• How to create a stronger social media presence without wasting all your time doing it.

• How to create free marketing opportunities which are 12 times more powerful than any form of advertising.

Finally, attendees will leave with a list of immediately implementable, action-oriented tactics and suggestions that they can put into place immediately upon returning to their businesses.
