Don’t build your business or your marketing on shaky foundations. In this programme, we will ensure that you have all the basic building blocks in place that you need to grow and promote your business and enhance your impact.
START WITH STRONG FOUNDATIONS
You want to make a difference AND make a living…
You want to spread the word about your vision…
You want to attract the RIGHT clients towards your work – people that you can truly be of service to…
You want your marketing to be enjoyable and not to feel as though it is sucking all the joy out of your business…
You want to reach more people so that you can grow your impact but you don’t know where to start…
Here’s the answer…you put in place the foundations of ALL great businesses & marketing using the Actually® ’10 Ps’ process :
1. Purpose / 2. Priorities / 3. Principles
4. People / 5. Preparation / 6. Products
7. Pricing / 8. Positioning
9. Pathway* / 10. Planning*
I’ll let you into a secret…most business owners, coaches and consultants DON’T have all of these building blocks in place.
They are winging it. Guessing. Making it up as they go along!
And because they haven’t done this work, many of them struggle to PROMOTE their work or to GROW their business. They run from pillar to post, doing a hundred different training programmes, downloading thousands of ‘freebies’ looking for the magic bullet that will help.
Here’s the thing: there is no magic bullet.
But there is a simple solution.
Do the work on your foundations and build from there. Because without these building blocks in place, you are ‘spraying and praying’. And I want you to be targeted and effective.
I want you to put in place solid foundations that mean you can actually ENJOY promoting your work.
I want you to grow your impact – and to grow your business if that’s what you want – with ease and fun!
That’s why I created ‘Actually® Foundations’.
I hope you’ll join me.
*Please note that PLANNING is NOT included in Foundations.
This is covered via our Annual Planning Retreat and / or as part of our JFDI membership.
WHAT YOU’LL LEARN
Over seven modules of LIVE training – plus a pre-recorded module to help you to prepare – you will:
Get clear about your purpose – your vision and mission – and how to articulate this in a way that inspires others and attracts those you most want to work or collaborate with…
Develop 100% clarity about your business and communications priorities based on where you are in the natural life-cycle of your business’ growth.
Establish the guiding principles (or values) for your business and how they apply within your decision-making and your communications.
Identify, understand and truly connect with your people (your ideal clients) so that you know what they think, what they want and what they need from you…
Develop your simplest possible business model of products that deliver for your clients and create a business that works for you…

THE ACTUALLY® DIFFERENCE
This programme is based on decades of experience in business, entrepreneurialism, marketing, campaigning and PR.
The concepts, ideas and principles that underpin this specific training have been tested in the real world and the content is consistently updated to ensure that this is the BEST intensive foundations training purpose-led entrepreneurs and changemakers on the market today.
All of the content is taught by our Founder, Sara Price. The majority of the programme is delivered LIVE so that you can interact and ask questions to get what YOU need. And if you want to review the learnings, you can watch recordings afterwards.
By the end of the programme, you’ll have in place the building blocks for a great business and for marketing that will drive awareness, inspire followers, create raving fans and enhance your impact so that you can ACTUALLY® make a difference.

BUT IS IT RIGHT FOR ME?
I believe that our Foundations programme is the perfect course for purpose-led entrepreneurs, business owners and coaches.
If you’re just starting out – it will help you to develop the basic building blocks that will give your new business, and your marketing, a solid foundation.
If you’ve been in business for a while, it will help you to fill in the blanks – those things that might be holding you back from achieving all that you want to.
But, before you decide whether or not to invest in Actually Foundations, I want you to feel sure that it’s the RIGHT decision for YOU.
That’s why I put together this questionnaire. It will take about five minutes and I promise, if at the end I don’t think this is the right programme for you, I will say so.
And of course, if you want to chat about the programme and how it might be able to help you, please just 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?
“This is literal gold dust, the whole course fee and time was worth it for this section alone. THANK YOU!”

DOES IT WORK?
I think this is probably THE best foundational training available on the market right now. But then again, I would say that, wouldn’t I?
In case you’re in any doubt, here’s what some other people say about our work…
“Sara’s magical combination of wisdom and inspiration coupled with extraordinary expertise enabled us to cover a lot of ground in a relatively short space of time. Sara took no time at all to get under the skin of things: she is astute and insightful, discerning and encouraging which was just the right approach…” (Lucy W)
“I just wanted to thank you for your insight, generosity and being such a great teacher. You have given me an insight into PR and I am less scared, dare I say it….excited now to give it a whirl!” (Jacqueline McG)
“Thanks for navigating me through some unfamiliar territory which was out of my comfort zone. Lots learned and I’m feeling more confident.” (Nina J)

How do I know if Actually® Foundations is right for me?
We believe that this foundational programme is perfect for those looking to start their purpose-led business or coaching practice AND for people who may be a few years into their business journey but are finding things hard going!
It is really important to us that the people taking part in our programmes get maximum value from them. So it is as important to us as it is to you that this is the right programme for you. To that end, we have put together this questionnaire to help you to determine if this is the right programme for you. Just click the link, answer the questions and see what we recommend.
What happens if I register my interest?
If you register interest in the Actually Marketing Foundations programme before it officially opens – you will be contacted ahead of the launch and given priority booking status. However, please note that registering interest does not GUARANTEE you a place on the programme nor does it commit you to booking a place.
Is there a payment plan available?
Yes. It is easier for us if people pay in full – which is why we say ‘thank you’ by offering a ‘Pay in Full’ bonus. However, we recognise that it isn’t always possible for people to pay the full amount up-front – and an instalment plan is available.
When are the lessons and Q&A sessions?
Will Foundations lessons & Q&A be recorded?
What if I can't make the Q&A sessions? Will there be other ways to get my questions answered?
Where will I find the worksheets etc?
Once you have paid for your place on the programme, you will receive an email including details of the membership site where you will find worksheets and guides uploaded every fortnight just ahead of the module lesson.
I can't seem to access the worksheets that go with the Foundations programme.
Access to the membership site is granted once your payment has been received. You will receive a welcome email with all of the necessary information. Worksheets and assignments are uploaded each fortnight during the programme. If you have registered and paid for the programme and NOT received the welcome email or are experiencing difficulties accessing the membership site, please email firstname.lastname@example.org

If I want more in-depth training, what are my other options?
The Actually Marketing Foundations programme is about getting the building blocks in place for GREAT marketing (and great business too!). If you feel that you already have these in place then you may want to look at our flagship training programme: Actually Marketing Mastery. This in-depth training programme covers marketing strategy, planning and tactics in detail and – as the programme runs over six months – you have plenty of time to complete assignments, get 121 feedback and get every one of your questions answered. This is probably the most comprehensive training of it’s kind – all taught LIVE by our Founder, Sara Price. If you’d like to find out more, please click here.

WHAT IF MY BUILDING BLOCKS ARE FINE?
What if you've done all the work on your building blocks and your marketing still isn't working?
OK. First, don't panic. Second, ask yourself this: when it comes to marketing your business are your playing to your strengths? Or are you trying to squeeze your super star-shaped self into the square hole of a marketing strategy not designed for you? Are you doing what some online marketing guru - who has never met you - told you was THE thing to promote your business?
That won't work. You'll feel uncomfortable and inauthentic. And that is how you will come across.
Instead, find out what your Marketing Superpowers® are and build your marketing based on them.
What a relief!
