    Award winning Marketing pro...Wharton degree

    United States - Last active: 16 days ago - Tests: 3

    My objective is to help clients create marketing/sales leverage. Archimedes discovered the principle of leverage, how a small weight can move a large object. And marketing leverage is how businesses grow. Identify the fulcrum (aka "The Big Idea"), apply marketing weight, and lift sales dramatically. With 20 years of marketing and sales management experience at big (Pepsi, Holiday Inn, AAA) and small companies, I've managed virtually every aspect of strategic planning, marketing and sales program development, collateral and communications production, internet presence, and research and analysis. Two of my programs won national "Best of the Year" honors in separate industries. I have a degree from the Wharton School. I appreciate working with clients who understand the value of talent and experience, and who expect great results.

I see things differently than others and that has always helped me with my businesses and freelancing career. **REAL LIFE MARKETING EXAMPLE OF MY MARKETING HELP** -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Here's a great real life example of my creativity in marketing: I have a client and she is a hair dresser. She asked me how to drive traffic into her SLOW hair salon. I asked her why it was so slow. She said that the prices were kind of high and nobody wanted to try that salon because the outside looked bad but the inside was beautiful. I told she had two options 1) Fix the outside appearance or 2) Try a creative marketing approach. She said what could I do that's creative for haircuts? I told her to use the "A" frame sign in front of here store and put, "FREE HAIRCUTS THIS WEEKEND- TIPS APPRECIATED". What do you think happened? The hair salon was slammed. She had 15-25 bookings a day that weekend and was making $5-$25 in tips per client. She had so much work she had to give it away to the other stylists in that salon. They absolutely loved the haircuts and she booked about 1/2 the clients for the next haircut. Whenever she gets slow she breaks out that "A" frame sign and they flock in. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I have top 20%-20%-30% scores on Odesk for marketing, business plans, customer service and would love to help your business achieve it's financial goals. I'm a very hard worker with an intense focus on the job at hand. You need to hire me because I will bring true value to your business and help you fix the internal issues that others can't see. I look forward to helping you build your business
