This particular episode is a little different topic, as it’s really aimed mostly at those of you who work as professional trainers, especially if you own your own business.
You see, Melissa’s specialty is… well, it’s marketing. I know, I know… as a dog trainer, I too am terrified of marketing.
That’s why I wanted to warn you, that this episode may feel a little intense, but Melissa has some interesting points.
During our conversation we talk about:
- Why should we bother marketing?
- Why talking about marketing makes me feel icky
- How good marketing is actually a lot like good dog training, and so it’s maybe not so scary
