Leaminigton Spa, United Kingdom, October 14, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- As a consequence of over fifty people attending his Marketing Magician Business Marketing events last May, UK based Marketing Magician, Stefan Drew, is returning to the Algarve with a series of four new business and marketing workshops tailored for Portuguese based businesses.
Run in conjunction with the Hotel Garbe in Armação de Pêra the workshops all focus on marketing challenges that local businesses have asked for help with. From Adverrtising Secrets and PR to How to Quadruple Business Profits and How to Get on Page One of Google the workshops are practical, easy to learn and use low cost marketing methods.
Stefan commented, “Following my last visit a lot of local businesses have been in contact with me asking for help with their marketing. In some cases this has resulted in specific one to one help for that business. But quite a number asked me to come back with more workshops and for that reason I’m running more workshops on October 20th and 21st. I’m also running some marketing surgeries on October 22nd - these are on a one to one basis and can be booked privately.”
He continued, “It is good to be going back to Portugal. In May we had over 50 people attend the workshops and, ironically, having explained how important it is to work with the media, we had a call from the BBC to take part in a consumer programme which we did via mobile phone from the grounds of the Palacio De Estoi.
“Evidence of success like this is excellent but what is even better is that the businesses we have help report that not only has their business grow rapidly but that they have also dramatically cut their marketing costs.”
