Services and Products

Body & Mind Foundation primarily offers four services, as well as some related products.

Marketing Strategy development

Marketing Strategy is not a luxury – it is the foundation for the success of a business, and consists of a measurable Master Plan within which all tactical actions must take place. Body & Mind Foundation MD Marnus Roothman has a pre-meeting of around one hour with the relevant role-player(s) of a firm or organisation, during which he obtains all the relevant information needed, and sets dates for the next step – a “Bosberaad” (Workshop) with all relevant role-players attending, which takes place on two consecutive days, from 4 pm – around 9:30 pm (or later, if necessary). A final follow-up session of approximately 3 hours follows about one week later. NB: Depending on the complexity of the business, some companies request additional follow-up meetings, for which a separate quote is then given. Marnus Roothman uses a master template © that results in a written marketing strategy – with sub-goals and time-frames – automatically being in place after the final session.

The fee is negotiable, in line with the size and/or complexity of the business.

Homepage copy-writing

The most important marketing document of any modern business is the homepage of its website – a highly specialized “sales letter” that should turn Suspects into Prospects. Many websites are fully SEO (Search Engine Optimized), attracting numerous “hits” per day, but a disproportionately low percentage of enquiries – indicating that the homepage copy is not effective. Marnus uses the internationally proven AIDA approach when writing the copy, bearing in mind that you literally have 4 seconds to attract the attention of the Suspect; and another 14 second to turn him into a Prospect – else he simply clicks out and is lost to your firm. (AIDA = attract Attention; arouse Interest; create Desire; instigate Action – there is a special writing technique attached to achieving this).
NB: Marketing Strategy Development clients pay a special discounted fee for Homepage copywriting.

Marketing related Seminars and In-house Workshops

Seminars can be tailored to be either full-day or half-day, and can be arranged for Business Chambers or other groupings; or for businesses clubbing together to reduce the cost factor. There is no limit set on the number of people attending Seminars. Fee negotiable.

In-house Workshops are conducted at the premises of the client, for a maximum of 30 attendees. All workshops are full-day (For “Sales Chassis Plans and Presentation Skills” a two day workshop is recommended to accommodate role-playing sessions). Seminar and Workshop topics are Marketing and Selling – there is no Magic; Practical Advertising for Small to Medium sized Firms; Sales Chassis Plans and Presentation Skills, The Role of Body Language in Selling, Customer Care for the Total Buying Experience; Marketing Strategy demystified; and Practical Long-term Motivation. Fee quoted is per day, irrespective of number of attendees. NB: Tailor-made seminars or workshops on different topics can be negotiated.

Marnus also on request delivers 15 – 30 minute talks on any of the above subjects; act as key-note speaker; or perform the duties of Master of Ceremonies.
