President and General Manager

United States - Tests: 1

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.

Marketing and Finance Professional

United States - Tests: 1

I often describe myself as jack of all trades. Other people will add in that I am fearless. The bigger the challenge, the more interested I will be. I am the marketing person who will take the time to truly understand the background and objectives of the assignment. I have often sat on the opposite side of the table from a marketing agency and been disgusted that the vendor did not even go to my website to spend five minutes understanding my business. I am very comfortable working remote and am never lost in a crowd. I always am engaged in things which I think are important. I am not afraid to ask questions about things I do not understand. I prefer small companies as I seem to put the interest of the company before my own self-interest. I have a diverse array of experiences in starting businesses, marketing, finance, copywriting and customer service to be an asset to a team. I understand what it takes to build a business while focusing on great customer service and implementing robust metrics to measure results. At Polaris Research and Development, I worked with various constituencies to ensure funds were properly being utilized. This required me to organize stakeholders, create marketing campaigns and develop metrics to evaluate success. At, I was part of the team to develop our first product. I had to guide SME’s, editors, and developers through an innovative and unfamiliar communication delivery model. This required me to educate my SME’s, who were well regarded professors, on the desired final product. In this role, I was responsible to ensure the product was delivered on time and on budget, as well as satisfy the requirements of the SME’s who were putting their names on the courses. At AT&T, my team evangelized the use of electronic customer support during a period when there was significant resistance to change. This required proving quality customer care could be provided electronically, without sacrificing upselling opportunities traditionally enjoyed via phone conversations with customers. Later at AT&T, I worked in the pricing group. I was responsible to take marketing programs and determine if the offers were optimal for our shareholder value. This required me to understand the goals and objectives of the various programs, working closely with marketing and communications. Once I clearly understood the objectives, I had to determine the efficacy. It was my role to convince the various stakeholders of the appropriate structure of the programs. This required lots of number crunching, listening and negotiating. Starting two different businesses was a thrilling and rewarding endeavor. It required to me to be organized and diligent about identifying the most urgent tasks. In both businesses I was always focused on building standardization to accurately measure and improve upon the services we were providing. At Adventure Cook, as the business rapidly took off, I had to determine the optimal employees, hiring structure, compensation, training, coaching and communication to ensure the company continued to grow. To achieve success I had to develop classes to appeal to our students and the parents who were paying. In order to fill the classes I had to partner with schools and school districts to allow us to market to their families. The marketing had to be clear and attainable as no one had attempted to offer cooking classes in the Adventure Cook format. My unique combination of psychology, marketing and hard core finance enable me to identify the optimal message to customers. My experiences in research will help me understand how to hone the appropriate messages and then measure success. I look forward to hearing from you so we can talk further about how I can be an asset to your team. Thank you for your consideration. Meridith Blank Taylor

Result-driven branding consultant, copywriter, and sales coach

United States - 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
