Public Speaker Bettina Horvath

One paragraph summary (for a longer bio please see the about page)

The digital marketing ninja with a knack for figuring out what makes people do the things they do.

Bettina Horvath is a dynamic self-made business woman with a love for teaching and the internet. Her more than 25 years experience in finding ways to meet client’s needs (aka sales) has led to a vast amount of knowledge in what works and what doesn’t when it comes to growing, promoting and building businesses. She enjoys teaching other business owners how to grow and improve their businesses on- and off-line. Having been a handpicked SalesPartner™ personally trained by Blair Singer, her teaching methods are unique, interacting and results driven. As an active role model of using the whole spectrum of Inbound Marketing she has gained a reputation of walking her talk and speaking her truth.

Speaking topics:

  • Inbound Marketing in a Nutshell
    What in the world is inbound marketing, how does it differ from traditional methods, why organisations cannot risk being left behind and how to start the journey to effective digital content marketing.
    (1 hour)
  • Social Media for Business
    The key to success in using social media to grow you business is learning and applying time-old tested communication tools. Nothing really has changed – we need to learn how to communicate effectively, we just have more tools available to engage and connect with other people. More important than which tool to use exactly is learning why to use social media and how to do so effectively. Stop selling – start engaging.
    (10 min – 5 days, yes it really depends on the depth wanted/needed)
  • Generating leads in the 21. century
    Push marketing is out of flavour, cold-calling is looking more like  is a dinosaur these days. In the 21st century pull marketing is all the rage, and with reason. Pull marketing is all about being authentic, telling your story openly and in an inspiring way, such that new leads are attracted to you and want to work with you. If you want to learn how to attract leads to grow your business listen to this talk.
    (30-45 min)
  • Increasing emotional intelligence to succeed in business and life
    Emotions are our guidance system, telling us what’s going on around us and how we feel about it. However nobody really taught us how to read emotions, how to understand their meaning and how to use them effectively to create a better feeling place for ourselves, our families, team mates, clients and really anybody we come in contact with. A powerful and high impact talk/training.
    (1 hour – 2 days workshop)
  • Being found on the internet with or without a website: How to leverage a Google Places listing to create more leads for your business even if you don’t have a website.
    In today’s world of instant online search on mobile phones it is imperative for local businesses to show up when prospective clients search for their products and services online. In this talk Bettina outlines the options available to create an effective online presence without the need of a full website.
    (10-30 min please indicate time available)

Thank you Bettina for your inspiring workshops and regular newsletters. You opened up my eyes to the essential value of having a web presence, and you opened up my mind to the numerous and exciting marketing possibilities there are on the net.

Talk about energy, thinking out of the box and "vasbyt" and I think "Bettina". Her knowledge about the field that she teaches in is well grounded and she can therefore teach from experience. She has the ability to take you out of your comfortzone and make you grow to your full potential in what she teaches. Watch the "Bettina" space!
