If you’re a solopreneur who wants more customers, this FREE day is for you!

Here’s your invitation to join two Direct Response Marketers and bestselling authors for a day all about making your marketing more effective!

This will be an in-person only event at Codebreak HQ, Shrewsbury. So you can avoid the pain of Dave forgetting he’s un-muted himself and Tracey not being able to screen share….

No BS, no jargon – just easy-to-action strategies and tactics that will move your business forward.

You’ll enjoy a day learning: 

  • Why running digital ads our way will transform your business
  • How to stay in front of your dream customer
  • What marketing to focus on and what to bin
  • How to produce more social media content in less time
  • Why email marketing is the #1 customer retention tool
  • The easiest ways to upsell and get referrals
  • The inside secrets to closing more sales

We deeply appreciate your efforts. You are helping us do something that I think will help people’s lives and creating something quite exciting.

Why Direct Response Marketing?

Andy & Joel’s Marketing Accelerator will give you tried-and-tested principles that move the needle for small businesses.

This is what I do, this is what I get back.

It is not yet another course on how to get more “likes”! That’s just vanity marketing, which doesn’t put food on the table. Do you want more likes or more customers?

Direct Reponse Marketing is about the latter.

You’ll leave Codebreak HQ knowing more about practical, effective marketing than 90% of business owners.

Andy Rao and Joel Stone

We’re Andy and Joel. We’ll personally be running the Marketing Accelerator for you.

We’ve been “in” marketing for a loooong time. In our corporate days, it was amazing to have worked at powerhouses such as ITV and Pearl & Dean. Worked on international brands such as Vodafone and Anthony Joshua.

But for years, our sole focus has been growing fellow independent businesses.

The day will be informal. No ‘Death by PowerPoint’! It will be fun and inclusive; whether you’re male, female, young, young-at-heart… you’ll feel welcomed and appreciated.

If any of the below sound familiar:

  • You’d love to hear the phone ringing more often
  • You’re unsure which ads would be the best for you
  • You’re competing against the big boys
  • You’re doubting your prices
  • You’re doubting yourself
  • You’d benefit from a structured marketing plan
  • You feel alone in business at times
  • You could be better positioned as an expert…

Our Commitment And Yours

Attendance at the Marketing Accelerator, including all of the above, is FREE. You’ll come away with at least five key takeaways to making your business stronger. That is our commitment to you.

To secure your space, your commitment is to put down a £99+vat fully refundable deposit. This will be back in your bank account by the time you get home.

But if you don’t show, you don’t get your deposit back. Your space could have been given to another business owner.

If that floats your boat, please book on TODAY before the spaces go!

Feel free to email Caitlin Barnes with any questions.

Fantastic service throughout. Prompt, professional, proactive, helpful, approachable – I have no complaints.
