Included marketing resources

One of the great benefits of being a Made in the Shade owner is that you will not need to develop your own path to marketing your new company. You’ll have access to a road map to success, developed over decades, to a tried-and-true digital and print marketing plan that helps drive customers to your business. You will not have to reinvent the wheel!
