  • Hi Keith. I am currently working on a marketing plan, I have been reading and educating myself on tons of

    resources that are available.  But I think I have lost my way in a pile of information I am not sure how to go forward.

    Currently, Westbow is developing a website for me.  I have set up a Facebook account, twitter, Instagram.

    From what I've been reading, a great start point is finding who my target audience is, their location, etc. 

    I have gone on some websites that should supply these answers. Up until this point, I've become

    overwhelmed with tons of information.  Getting to the next step of establishing an online presence I 

    find even more daunting. 

    I am asking for your guidance in narrowing down my tasks.  Are these marketing steps done consecutively, or is their one specific area of

    marketing I need to focus on?  I hope you can offer your guidance.

    thanks, Sophia.
