Happy New Year!!

31 Dec

Friday, December 31, 2010

It is officially the last day of the year. We’re saying goodbye to one year, but embarking into a one…with renewed optimism and the anticipation of inexhaustible possibilities. On this New Year’s Eve, for 2011, make a resolution to renew your dedication to your mission; fulfill your promise to customers; and above all else, be highly successful through strategic marketing and publicity planning.

I’m so excited to see what we can do as a nation built on the foundation of small and family-owned businesses to spark the economy! I can’t wait to work with fledgling non-profit organizations in order to perpetuate their missions to help others. And with so much loss, devastation and war, I can’t wait to work with churches, ministries and other religious organizations that support and offer hope to us all.

When you’ve made your resolution, contact me so we can talk about your unique situation. For more information on how I can help, please visit the “Services” page. I can’t wait to work with you in 2011. Happy New Year and may you and your family be blessed in 2011!

Wacky Business Ideas!

14 Dec

Tuesday, December 14, 2010 (In case you didn’t read that right, there are only 11 days until Christmas!!*)

Are you thinking of starting a new venture, but just need a little encouragement? Here are some recent ventures that you will enjoy. The entrepreneur in me LOVES these ideas. I love and am always amazed at people’s creativity and can appreciate each of these enterprises for how they have made dreams come true, stimulated the economy and even (hopefully) brought joy to the consumer. I hope you enjoy these as much as I did. Imagine: chicken diapers and a construction vehicle playground! Amazing.    (Note: By clicking on the link below, you will be taken to another site.)

*Just a side note: The reason for the season goes beyond presents, trees, lights and even family. The Reason left perfection in Heaven to be born into this imperfect world – to make us complete. Consider what CHRISTmas is all about this year. John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.”  Eternal life in the One true God. May God bless you and your family this Christmas season!


Tight budget? So what?

3 Dec

Friday, December 3, 2010

It’s really December already?! (I feel like it was just summer.) That means that the new year is rapidly approaching and it’s time to consider your company’s budget for the coming year. Most of us don’t have an unlimited budget — wouldn’t that be nice? — so creating and sticking to a budget can often be difficult. Sometimes certain aspects of the business will need to be cut back. One thing you shouldn’t skimp on, though, is your marketing/public relations budget. Now, I know that is easier said than done because we want everything in balance. However, there are ways to creatively and resourcefully fill in the gaps. I have helped several organizations overcome tight budget situations and still accomplish their communications goals. I promise — it can be done! Get in touch with me and we can talk about how to make this work with your unique circumstances.

I would love to hear from you. Simply use the comment field below to share your experiences. Open Forum: A) If you had an unlimited budget for your company, what are the top three marketing activities you would conduct?
AND
B) What creative or resourceful measures have you taken in your marketing efforts?

If your company is looking for ways to accomplish your goals, but still stay within budget, please contact me. I would love to show you how.
