Marketing is a Game Changer for Your Business

Making a great product and providing an incredible service does not guarantee success. A real game changer for most businesses is their marketing. To achieve the success you want, you may need to think less about your own motivations, and more about what your clients really want.

Chad Ebert is the owner of the Powell Academy of Music, which trains students of all ages through music education. The music academy struggled to get enough students during its first five years, and has grown so much in the last three that he’s preparing to open a second location in Lewis Center.

What changed? Chad says it’s because they are a music academy that thinks like a marketing company. He talks to host Mary McCarthy about how he realized he needed to get to the core motivation about WHY people really need his service.

“We aren’t really selling music lessons as much as we are trying to develop young people into being successful adults.”
