How Do You Connect With Your Customers?
It Used To Be That The Loudest And Most Repetitive Was The One Who Got The Business
That Was Then, And This Is Now!
changed the way we do everything over the last 20 years, and it has undeniably
changed the way we do business...forever. It used to be that the company with the loudest and most
repetitive advertising strategies is where consumers' dollars went. Not anymore. The
"Yellow Pages" have been replaced with
search engine technology
and social media
has re-defined "word-of-mouth" advertising, just to name two crucial changes in
finding customers. Connecting with customers today can seem like an
enormous time-consuming set of seemingly unrelated activities. The reality is that connecting
with customers today is about gaining customer permission, attraction and having a
conversation, not just being the loudest. That means that your marketing
activities need to incorporate today's technology more than ever in order to stay in business
and to compete in today's world.
Keeping Up With New Technology Can Be
You have a lot on your plate as a business owner today, such as payroll, accounting, and operations.
In your day-to-day activities, you serve your existing customers, handle the occasional customer complaint, and deal with inventory
and employees. Marketing may be the last thing on your mind, but
it should be one of the first things on your mind. It's how you find new customers and how new customers find you. What can you, as a busy business
owner, do today to keep growing?
Managing an in-house marketing department can give
you more work to do instead of less. Doing it yourself also
may not be a valid solution for you, because there still are only 24 hours in a day
and you probably don't want to spend all of them working. As a business owner, you have to keep customers
coming back AND
new business to keep the bills paid, to keep the doors
open and to add to your personal bottom-line.

Put My Experience To Work For You!
I have started my own businesses since 1989. I learned how to start a business by
"wearing out shoe leather" and meeting people in sales. Gradually, the methods used by previously successful companies
became obsolete. Technology gave rise to new competitors, new methods of doing business and new successes.
I had to learn and change to get better results. I started my businesses
with no outside funding, and if anything needed to get done,
I had to do it myself. If I wanted a web site, I had to learn how to create it.
If I wanted more people to visit my web sites, I had to learn how to attract more visitors.
If technology provided more marketing opportunities, I had to learn the new technology and
execute the new techniques. I've learned a lot since then,
and I have a great deal of experience in what works and what doesn't work.
Every day, I learn new techniques and new technology to help stay ahead of change
in today’s rapidly changing business world. By constantly staying ahead of change, I can help
you improve your marketing efforts and improve your business results!
