ACTUALLY® MARKETING MASTERY
Our 6 MONTH flagship training programme covering everything you need to spread the word, attract the RIGHT clients and grow your business.
ASPIRE TO MASTERY
Mastery isn’t for everyone.
Most people are happy with ‘OK’.
But not you.
You have dreams to fulfil, impact to deliver and change to create. You want to ACTUALLY® make a difference…
And you’ve done the basics. But you know that there is more to do if you’re going to deliver on those business dreams and enhance your impact.
You aspire to marketing MASTERY!
So what does it take to achieve Mastery?
Well, firstly, you’re going to need a clear marketing strategy or PATHWAY.
This will help you to avoid the ‘scattergun’ approach to marketing – incessantly posting on LinkedIn, firing off emails, dancing on TikTok and going live on Facebook with no clear idea of why or whether any of it will actually work.
Secondly, you need an overarching marketing PLAN so that instead of running to stand still and feeling frazzled you have a clear, step by step guide to what needs to be done and when.
Goodbye “overwhelmed”. Hello “in control”!
And finally, you need PRACTICAL SKILLS training that enhances your natural strengths and plays to your marketing superpowers so that you can promote your business in ways that feel comfortable, natural and authentic to YOU.
Actually® Marketing Mastery covers all this and more.
Over the course of six months – you’ll develop a clear strategy; you’ll identify YOUR natural strengths as a communicator and develop the approach and the skills that will work for YOU.
And you’ll walk away with an actionable plan that feels comfortable and do-able.
Sound good? Then this programme was designed for you!
“This has exceeded my expectations. The level of input from you…is incredible. That’s the secret sauce for me as it will keep me feeling accountable.”
Laura Coleman, Be.Modern Meditation

A clear strategy or ‘PATHWAY’ in place to guide your decision making so that you can focus on growing your business and stop wasting time on marketing & communications that will not work

The skills to make the most of your natural strengths and deliver that approach – from PR to podcast guesting, social content to public speaking, networking to advertising.
Learnt how to plan for your business and your marketing – so you know where you’re going, what you’re doing and how…every step of the way.
And much, much more. In short, you’ll have mastery of everything you need to create GREAT marketing that will grow your business and your impact!
“Thank you so much for your time, energy, expertise and enthusiasm…I have sat through several sessions on PR over the years, and that was far and away the most useful, helpful and informative session I’ve been to. I was really inspired by both the clarity of content and your generosity of spirit.“
**Please note, we adjust and adapt Mastery to the needs of the participants so this list of topics is indicative. We will cover FOUNDATIONS REVIEW, PATHWAY (STRATEGY) and PLANNING and a selection of PRACTICAL SKILLS.

“Honestly, this course is just incredible. It has helped me to re-evaluate my business ideas before I have wasted time on them, and re-shape them into something that will actually work. Thank you!“
BUT IS IT RIGHT FOR ME?
I believe that the Actually® Marketing Mastery Programme is one of the best courses of its type on the market. BUT it isn’t right for everyone.
Integrity is important to me, I don’t believe in selling programmes to people who won’t get the maximum benefit from them.
In order to get the most from this course, you need to have some solid foundations in place.
We will be reviewing your marketing foundations – the core building blocks – at the beginning of the programme but we won’t be covering this work in detail.
So you will need to have a degree of clarity on your purpose, principles, people, products, pricing and positioning before you begin the course.
To help you to decide if Mastery is right for you, I’ve put together this questionnaire. It will take about five minutes to complete.
And if you have any specific questions or would like to chat this through, please email the office to discuss your needs. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
My commitment to you – if we do have a call – is that I will not try and sell you something I don’t believe is right for you. And if I can’t help you, I will recommend someone who can. Does that seem fair enough?
“The value you put into this programme is staggering. I learn so much from every module and the time you must spend in each one is such a gift.”
Lisa Wynn, legacy creation coach
THE ACTUALLY® DIFFERENCE
This is our flagship programme, based on decades of experience in communications, marketing, campaigning and PR. It was developed and tested over 3 years and is constantly updated to ensure that this is the BEST marketing & communications training for purpose-led entrepreneurs and changemakers on the market today.
This course is delivered over 6 months allowing you plenty of time to implement what you’re learning and check back in with your trainer to get feedback on your questions and assignments between lessons.
The entire course is delivered LIVE. And the content is created, adapted and refined for each group to make sure that you are getting exactly what YOU need.
No other programme on the market right now offers the same level of LIVE personal input, expert insight and detailed, tailored advice to help you to get ready to speak up and spread the word!
Actually® Marketing Mastery is not for everyone. If you’ve not completed our Marketing Foundations programme, we recommend completing the self-assessment questionnaire to ascertain if this is the right programme for you.
“If I look a bit blank it’s actually a compliment. If I find the training too easy or boring I talk a lot, but when I go quiet and frown it’s because I’m processing lots of fabulous new information and ideas – which is what I really want. I am really loving this course. I thought it would be useful but it is already considerably exceeding my expectations!!!”
Aime Armstrong, Ninja HR
aBOUT YOUR TRAINER
My name is Sara Price. I am a business leader, an entrepreneur, a coach, a mentor and a trainer.
I have spent over 25 years in communications, campaigning and PR – helping some of the biggest brands in the world from Kellogg’s to Avon. I’ve advised charities and campaigning groups as diverse as SheDecides and UNICEF. And once upon a time my team and I also raised $1 million for a start-up space mission in just 25 days with a budget of $0!
And after two and half decades in communications, here’s what I know for sure: the power of words can be yours. There’s no mystery or magic to it. Great marketing is just a set of skills and they can be learnt.
I would like to teach you.
Why? Because I believe in the power of purpose. I believe in hope and optimism. I believe that words are the most powerful weapons we have in our armoury and we can use them to make a difference.
I believe that each of you, stepping up, speaking up and achieving your business dreams: that’s what will create the change we need to see in the world.
And helping to make that to happen is my purpose in the world.
So let me help you to communicate your vision to the world. Let me help you to use the power of words to grow your business. Let me help you to have a bigger impact. And let’s fulfil our purposes together.
Let’s ACTUALLY® make a difference & change the world!
