How Business Creates Value:
We take a top down approach, starting with a conversation about the goals and aspirations, both business and personal, of the ownership. This could be anything from grow sales/profit, to prepare for sale/hand off to kids or staff. It can be about startups or turnarounds.
Once we know the goals, we discuss what has worked in the past. We commonly look at financials. Then we discuss staff, location, equipment, and other operational aspects of the business.
I then personally review the client's online presence and reputation. This is followed by an in-depth study of the industry and the competition.
Within days of the first conversation, a detailed analysis and set of recommendations will follow. Then we execute. We create value by providing very specific execution on marketing approaches that are most likely to bring the results desired by the owner.
How Member Creates Value:
I have a massive background in every aspect of marketing except TV. From mailers and other print approaches, to radio, trade shows, events, and more. I maintain a cutting-edge understanding of all things related to the internet, including Facebook and Instagram advertising, Amazon, Kickstarter, and more.
I have developed hundreds of new products, services, packages, and product displays.
I love to figure out new methods of distribution of products or ways to reach new demographics with products or services.
