Summary:I will provide you with a template to create a short marketing plan and we will go through the plan step-by-step, giving you examples for your translation business and a chance to fill in your own marketing plan. When finished you will have an overview of your marketing situation and a to-do-list for getting more or better clients and to stand out among other translators.
Based on the answers to the survey we will spend one hour together to create a practical marketing plan for your translation business, discussing your specialization, target market and current situation and fill out a plan for different marketing methods, target groups, action steps etc. Then the student will finalize a marketing plan on his/her own and we will get together for a second one hour call to answer questions and solidify the plan.

Contents of the marketing plan:

Evaluating and defining current situation
Defining short term and long term goals
Defining your services, your unique selling points and how you can provide value to your ideal clients
Defining your target market, who, where, what, when
What marketing activities and platforms to use
Creating a calendar and to do list for your marketing
