Good day and thanks for stopping by. We are Lynda & D'Arcy Kavanagh proudly wearing the Kavanagh Irish tartan in this photo. We own WOW Communications & Training and have been providing sales and marketing help to businesses and organizations since 1994.
Our promise to our clients:
We take away your sales and marketing frustrations
Our training and consulting services help businesses obtain more value from their marketing budgets. We have been helping businesses and organizations since 1994. Since we are a lean company - just the two of us with occasional freelancers - we spend time with you before you hire us to ensure we can help you. Then, we look at what your frustrations are when it comes to sales and marketing; Do you need to fix an immediate problem? Do you need to understand how to conduct sales and marketing activities? Do you need to develop a long-term focus? Do you need to train staff? Once we know what is frustrating you, then we offer whichever services you need: one-on-one coaching, staff training, group training, online video training, or a resource like a book or audio CD.
- - We are professional. We have helped companies with annual budgets of $25m to Brand and create Sales and Market plans.
- - We offer a broader perspective than just your local service area because the world is now your marketplace. We've done business past the Alberta borders working with businesses across Canada, the Yukon, the United States and in Europe. This along with our constant hunger for understanding consumer behaviour give us a broad perspective that we bring to our clients' Marketing. This means when we work with your marketing won't have the "same-old, same-old" look and message your local competition are using. We are our clients' competitive advantage.
- - We respect your time. You won't have unlimited meetings with us, once we know what you need, we'll set it in place.
- - Our goal is to work our way out of working with you. Once we address and fix your sales and marketing frustrations, we'll train your staff to conduct these activities themselves. We'll always be there for you if you need help but you won't be tied into long-term contracts with us.
Here's how we help!
What we hear the most when talking with people about their sales and marketing frustrations is - many businesses don't understand the difference between sales and marketing. The calls go something like this;
"Hey, WOW I need help with my marketing." When we ask for details they may say, "I need help with my social media," or "I need help with Advertising," or "I would like to get a brochure done,", or I need some staff training."
There it is. Those activities are sales activities, not marketing. We also hear a lot of people asking us for a Brand - but they really mean they want a name and logo. Those are important but they ARE NOT a business' Brand.
At WOW, our job is to take away any sales and marketing frustrations and show you how to effectively market your business using strategy (marketing) and implementation (sales). We do that by offering our sales and marketing coaching and training services in as many ways as possible so no matter where you are in the world, or how big your business is or even how much money you have - we have a service that will help get you on the right course.
For coaching, through our WOW CAT program, we can meet with you and/or you and your team through face-to-face, SKYPE or web conferencing software. Through our Virtual WOW program, we become your virtual sales and marketing coach.
For training, we provide customized training at your location, or through a conference or seminar, or through online video courses that you can take anywhere at anytime on any device.
For resources, and if you just need a little bit of help, you may want to consider a WOW resource like paperback or audio books, or receive Sales and Marketing Tips through our newsletter, or our social media channels: Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn,
No matter where you are in the world, we will work closely with you to
