Teaching Marketing to DV High School Students Rocks

Filed under: Phoenix Marketing Ltd., Teaching Marketing — christine @ 10:29 pm

Hi and thanks for visiting our marketing website!

If you know our company, then you know that we love to teach marketing to our clients and the public. We teach marketing classes constantly.

This month we were asked to teach a high school marketing class about our “message to market match”.

Dr. Ron Marek, my business partner and co-owner of Phoenix-Bushido Marketing volunteered to teach two classes on this subject matter.  He loved the experience and so did the students. This is what they said..

Zak.. “We were hanging on every word.. you crafted your message perfectly to fit this audience.. I learned more about marketing in one period than I expected to learn all year.”

Logan. ..”I think it’s really cool that your job helps out other peoples company … Without Phoenix-Bushido Marketing I think that a lot of companies would still be struggling.”

Michelle… ” I learned that you need to define your maket, then your message, and then choose your media and then timing is also very important… Thank you very much.”

Hayley…”It (the marketing class) blew my mind…. I didn’t know that everyone in the world is marketing themselves right now.”

Kenneth…” Your speech helped me see what the business world today is really about.”

Jack…”I learned from you that if you are good at it (marketing)  you can automate half the process and save time and money.. Thank you, your beard is awesome. Deuces.”

Natalie…”The marketing triangle is something I will always remember and utilize in this class and in real life.”

If you’d like to know about our next marketing class. Contact me.. or call us at our office, 480.456-3700. Bushido!

Teaching Marketing to Aspiring Naturopathic Physicians

Filed under: Being a volunteer, Teaching Marketing — christine @ 10:39 pm

This past Wednesday I was asked to teach my marketing know-how to a class of naturopathic physician students at the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine and Health Sciences.

Dr. Audette requested me to speak for her class of 30 students and I was happy to volunteer.

I decided the best lecture for the class would relate to message to market match and the secret marketing triangle. We discussed and engaged learning from the students as I enjoy making all classrooms actively involved in the subject matter. There was no yawning or sleeping during my lecture.

We address messages, markets, mediums and timing. The students participated fairly well. I could see they were not comfortable with the marketing world. But I assured them that there was no way to avoid it if they wanted to have a healthy business. “First you are marketers, then physicians”, I said at the end of the class. “Don’t forget this rule or your patients will have a very tough time finding that you even exist.”

If you’d like for me to teach marketing to your class or group. Let me know.

Yours in business support,

Ahwatukee Chamber of Commerce Marketing Think Tank.. my new baby

Filed under: Being a volunteer, Phoenix Marketing Ltd., Teaching Marketing — christine @ 10:10 pm

Yes, I volunteered for another community activity. Recently the Ahwatukee Chamber surveyed it’s members to see what they needed in terms of business support. One of the big areas was marketing. From that survey response I proposed creating a helpful Marketing Think Tank to the Chamber. Terri Kimble the chamber’s President loved the idea so this Thursday, Sept. 9th we’ll hold the first meeting. Here are the details.


Marketing “Think Tank” begins this September 9th, from noon to 1 pm at the Ahwatukee Chamber offices. This business support meeting will occur every month, same time and place, on the 2nd Thursday of the month.The “Think Tank”, facilitated by marketing instructor Christine Marek, will be an informal roundtable discussion of successful marketing tactics and strategies for chamber member business owners. Members are encouraged to bring their ideas, actual marketing situations and their brainstorming abilities to the meeting. Visitors are encouraged to attend.
Remember, NO sharks are allowed in this tank only marketing thinkers and doers. For more information call the chamber at 480.753.7676 or visit their website at
