Branding Tips to Increase Sales
I have been trying to add some basic posts recently to educate people on what all these inbound marketing tools are and why they are important so here is another one on Twitter. When it comes to businesses why would I want to use Twitter? This is the main question I get.
The other day we added a blog post on what is RSS. As I was thinking about this, I thought it might be wise to share an article/video on what is a blog. If you are a business looking to market your company and looking for ways to do it in a cost effective manner, blogs are the way to go.
If you are tech savvy you have been using RSS for ages, it's been around for years. If you are a little less tech savvy you might want to look into it for two reasons:
Over the years I have gotten people calling us time and time again looking for some project based work. You know something like a website, logo design, brochure, etc. You know a one off item.
In the past we did take on this type of work. I am sad to say that those days are long gone. Here is the deal my company is all about building brands. It take time to build a brand, it is not a one website build and done type thing. A brand take time and commitment and ongoing marketing efforts. Although we do all the items, we only do them in order to accomplish the bigger goal of building a successful company and then turning that success into a strong brand.
So if you are looking for a logo design or a website design or a direct mail campaign, then we are happy to help you out, but only if these items are focused on the bigger picture of building a solid brand. If you want to guarantee your success in business you must develop a marketing strategy that can build leads for your sales team. If you have a strong sales team, then we can help deliver the lead gen., but this is something that takes time and gets better over time like a fine wine.
As a matter of fact, we not only do not take on project based work, but we also do not take on clients looking for less than $100K in growth annually. If you want to grow $100K to $5 million a year annually then you might want to give us a call. This is the area we are able to service well. Since it will cost several tens of thousands of dollars to get started building a brand, we tend to not be a good fit for all small businesses or start-ups.
Is this genius or what? Jennifer is amazing in this video!

If sales are down or you just have bigger goals for revenue growth for your company, but just not sure what to do, you may be in luck. SMARKETING may be the new solution. What is Smarketing you may be asking yourself?
