    Is your business exactly where you want it to be? You don’t have any any problems to solve or improvements to make? Is your business perfect? Probably not. Even those of us who have taken on the challenge of helping others improve, and sometimes transform, their businesses have problems and work to improve on a daily basis. (Shhhh!, don’t tell anyone, but we make a lot of mistakes too. Good mistakes that still move us forward and even some where we ask ourselves what we were thinking. But the progress is always forward and tomorrow always turns out to be better than yesterday.) So if you want to improve on any or all of the following then we can help you without a shadow of a doubt: • Revenue generation • New sources of revenue • Profit • Costs • Quality • Customer service / satisfaction • Time • Frustration • Employee engagement • Delays • Problem Solving • Control • Processes and systems • Value creation and delivery It is not magic. Everything we do is something you could do all on your own. You could teach yourself and do it. The problem is that you are running a business and probably don’t have the time to learn and even less time to make costly mistakes and missteps. We all need help with things for which we either do not have the time, resources, or talent. If we did we would be perfect. No one is. If you want to generate more revenue (and profits) through better marketing then we can help. If you want improved profits, problems solved permanently, fewer surprises, and happier customers (or patients, clients, patrons, etc.) then we can help. If you want to free up more of your time to do what you do best and enjoy while letting others do the same and still enjoy the increased revenue and profits and reduced problems, then we can help.

    Result-driven branding consultant, copywriter, and sales coach

    United States - Last active: 2 months ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 1

    Hello! For 14 years I have been growing companies through effective and out-of-the-box marketing strategies. At first it was my own companies. Then friends sought me for advice and I'd get endless invitations to become their partners in existing and upcoming businesses. Before I knew, I had become a marketing consultant and was spending my days helping clients grow their businesses. I could talk about the IT company that I rebranded as technology consultants, and as results, their contracts increased 4 times in price. I could also talk about the tables and chairs company that, without spending a single dollar in advertising, got on the first page of Google, Bing, and Yahoo!, sold to government agencies, including the U.S. Navy, famous universities, and Fortune 500 companies. And I could tell you about other clients' success stories. But I'd prefer to talk about you and how to make yours a success story. --- / --- \ --- Services Description: CLIENT ACQUISITION AND RETENTION We help companies get new clients and keep the current ones. Most marketing agencies and professionals focus solely on helping their customers get new clients. They ignore that it is easier and more profitable to keep current clients satisfied than it is to get new clients. UNCOVERING YOUR REAL NEEDS We start by understanding the real needs and goals of clients and helping them getting there. The main challenge with marketing today is that there are too many choices available; it can be daunting deciding what the best strategy for your firm is. For example, people often think that they need one specific solution, say a beautiful new website. But that might not be what they really need. Chances are your site is fine, and instead of a total makeover you simply need a remodeling. Instead of simply selling you a website, we'd prefer to talk to you and understand your real goals and then create and implement a strategy to get you there. We work with firms of different sizes and budgets. We create beautiful and functional websites that clearly describe what you do, how you will defend/support your clients, and how they can contact you. Then we can get you on top of Google (but it takes time), and bring leads to your site (immediately) through online advertising (pay-per click or display ads). Also, we can increase your reputation online and help you communicate with prospective clients even before they need your services through effective social media marketing. And when you get prospects knocking on your door or calling you, we will teach you how to turn them into paying clients who will tell Here's a list of services that we provide: Branding Marketing Consulting Web Design and Development Sales Coaching Mobile Application Testing, UI/UX Website Conversion Optimization Marketing Planning Copywriting Search Engine Optimization (SEO) Graphic Design Video Production Printing Pay-Per-Click Advertisement campaign creation and management Social Media Management Web Hosting and Security Marketing Audits Branding
