Introducing the Marketing Idea Exchange
We live in an age where there's no shortage of information about marketing tactics. Between the endless sea of coaches, the thousands of online courses, and incessant cold-calling marketers, the noise can be overwhelming.
But it takes more than tactics alone to grow a brand.
The only way to successfully tell your story in the marketplace is with a strategy that connects your people and systems to your marketing.
The Marketing Idea Exchange was created to help you do exactly that. We are a private online membership community on a mission to cut through the noise and find marketing solutions that simply work.
4 WAYS THAT MIX GROWS YOUR BUSINESS
The Marketing Idea Exchange is a membership that blends online learning with real-world connecting. We're on a mission to help you cut through the noise to find marketing solutions that simply work.
You'll have access to a huge (and growing) library of content for you, starting with Quick Wins that will kickstart your efforts and keep you motivated.
You'll then dive into the creation of a Strategic Marketing Plan that will help you shift your focus from buzz building with make-it-up-as-you-go tactics to build buzz to creating a brand with marketing that truly matters.
Our courses feature countless templates and resources and include video and MP3 formats to make it easy for you to complete.
FORUMS AND GROUPS:
Our members are the heart of the Marketing Idea Exchange. Together, we form a welcoming and positive environment for sharing and collaboration where nothing is for sale and there are no know-it-alls or gurus. At the member dashboard, you'll find informative forums and a help desk where you can get answers to questions or feedback and brainstorming. We also have a Marco Polo group for sharing video texts, and a Linkedin group for engagement and networking.
There's always something happening in the MIX! Every month, we host a LIVE Quick Wins call where we share cheap, easy, and free tactics. We also host a Member Roundtable for sharing what's new.
There's no limit to the ways that you can take advantage of the collective wisdom that you'll find in the MIX!

MIX is a community where you can find world-class online training and resources, feedback and support from your peers, and advice from trained and trusted marketing professionals.
Now, we're building on the strength of our online community and launching referral networking groups where members can tap into the power of word-of-mouth advertising. These referral communities are facilitated by MIX Ambassadors at no additional cost.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Still have questions? Let's get you some answers ...
Marketing Idea Exchange is a positive, focused community where like-minded people work on their marketing goals while sharing their own success stories, lessons learned, feedback, collaboration, and referrals to help other members grow.
The primary benefit of MIX is the learning content and resources that will help you grow your business. While your participation in the forums, groups, and LIVE events certainly adds to your experience, they are completely optional–we’ll see you in the MIX (as much or as little as you like!)
Each month, we have two recurring LIVE events that are held via Zoom (online) meeting. Local referral networking groups that are facilitated by MIX Ambassadors will set their own schedules for gathering.
So yes, there are regular meetings. But there are no attendance requirements. MIX is designed to help you learn world-class marketing solutions however, whenever, and wherever you like.
You can spend as much or as little time on the forums and groups as you like.
Courses are typically broken down into lessons that are around 20-minutes each and can be completed at your own pace.
The goal of MIX is to empower our members to create annual strategic marketing plans that will connect their people and systems to their marketing.
Therefore, completion of the first three courses and creation of a marketing plan is the first step that must be completed before the other courses become available.
Not only will you have access to the team members of a rapidly-growing marketing agency who will be sharing insights as they happen in the course of their client work, you can also ask questions and get advice, support and feedback any time from within our community.
That alone would we well worth the monthly fee, but we also run monthly live roundtable calls where you can present your questions to the community, request upcoming content, or make recommendations for improving the community.
Our fun and functional Marco Polo group allows you to send a quick video text to participating members, and our Linkedin group helps you grow your professional network and improve the engagement of your content.

MIX is designed to empower business owners and marketers who oversee and execute the marketing of their own business.
We help DIYers achieve world-class results.
If you find yourself in need of done-for-you services, then we’re happy to refer you to our partners at Synaptic. Most small agencies focus on short-term tactical executions that build short-term buzz. They outsource and then markup services like design, photography, website, videography, or digital advertising. Business owners can quickly feel disconnected from telling their brand story.
The Synaptic Approach is Different.
Synaptic tells brand stories in the marketplace by building a strategy and infrastructure with our client and then managing transparent partnerships with some of the best providers in the fields of traditional, digital, and media tactics on their behalf.
This results in partners and clients who feel empowered and informed while getting better outcomes and increased revenue for less cost and frustration.
What makes MIX different is that we prioritize the tried-and-true. We tap into the power of collective wisdom to help our members break the frustrating cycle of taking one leap of faith after another in search of marketing that simply works.
We are constantly examining case studies and campaigns from global brands to draw inspiration that will work for small business.
We also work to connect people from inside and outside their own industries so that they can learn from one another and support one another.
Our focus is on marketing that results in revenue because that’s marketing that really matters.
Obviously we’d love it if all of our members stuck around forever – but we understand that the needs of your business may change over time.
