Some of the most popular strategies of basic/internet marketing that we will look to aide client and business implement are: Webinars, Integrated Direct Marketing, Referral Generation, Case Referrals, eNewsletters, and email marketing.

AMB PROJECT MANAGEMENT/BUSINESS MANAGEMENT TRAINING: Our Project management and training looks at the business of planning, organizing, motivating, and controlling resources to achieve specific goals. A project is a temporary endeavor with a defined beginning and end (usually time-constrained, and often constrained by funding or deliverables), undertaken to meet unique goals and objectives, typically to bring about beneficial change or added value. The temporary nature of projects stands in contrast with business as usual (or operations), which are repetitive, permanent, or semipermanent functional activities to produce products or services. In practice, the management of these two systems is often quite different, and as such requires the development of distinct technical skills and management strategies.


The primary challenge of project management is to achieve all of the project goals and objectives while honoring the preconceived constraints. The primary constraints are scope, time, quality and budget, which will be looked at during the training and consultation process.
