Year One (1); Market, who are you and what do you have

Today's Tip – Year One (1); Market, who are you and what do you have -

“This is my rifle. There are many like it, but this one is mine.” And so as it is, Marketing is also one of your many weapons of success. There are many who market, but your marketing must be your own. It will have your branding, it will have your voice, it will have an image all its own. As with Networking, marketing is a valuable tool in your arsenal when it comes to making things happen.

Marketing your brand is more important than telling a person about your show, your new invention, book. When you create such a draw for your brand, then your bi-products will sellout. Whatever you are selling, people will want one if they truly love your brand. Geico sells insurance. Though, how many of you remember the caveman commercials they have and now their little mascot? Everyone of you. Geico is selling an image.

Once you believe in that image, Geico lets you know about their bi-product. You know, that insurance they sell. They have all kinds of insurance; Life, Car, House. And yet they are selling their brand over insurance first. Their brand sells the most important thing for Geico to survive, succeed and continue to grow: They sell their product which is their brand. Refocus your marketing strategy to incorporate your branding. Look into other companies for examples.

Year One (1); Network, talk a little here and there

Today's Tip – Year One (1); Network, talk a little here and there -

There are a few definitions on what Networking is. Here are two that will help you focus this need for success. 1) a supportive system of sharing information and services among individuals and groups having a common interest. 2) Cultivating relationships with individuals. Through building these strong relationships we create doorways to bridges, bridges to other lands, and lands to find outlets to promote yourself.

How can a person stay on top if no one is holding them up? The idea is utilize people. Using people can create negativity. Where-as, helping people can create possibilities! Working together will stabilize your ground, help lift those heavy gates, and fight off armies far greater than yours. Victories are won in numbers, so why would your victory in success be any different than a war? Even in peace, we can get more done with help.

For fun start building a house by yourself. When you become exhausted ask your friends and family to help. When it becomes evident on how much longer you can go with a group of people then start asking random strangers to help you. You'll find that it is much easier to build a house (succeed) with people you are friendly with then those you barely know. How do we turn a person we barely know into a friend? Through networking utilizing the terms above.

Year One (1); Budget your time & money

Today's Tip – Year One (1); Budget your time & money -

One of the top important aspects of success, Budgeting your time & money. Time comes around once and vanishes. It is literally a priceless commodity that can never be replaced. Our time, as humans, is worth an incalculable number. Sometimes people place a value on that time. What is yours? $9 an hour? $23 an hour? $200 an hour? The truth is, you are worth billions an hour for your time. You have a skill, it is in you, even if you have not found it yet.

Money, now money comes and goes. It, being our currency almost has no value since it can be here one day and gone the next. Money is different from wealth. Wealth by definition is an abundance of cash, assets, land, etc in a person(s) possession. Think of wealth in another sense of the word. Wealth is the amount of time you can go without ever working to earn more wealth.

If you work hourly to gain money to survive, then you are not wealthy. You are recouping money. To trade your time for money over earning wealth, which gains you financial freedom, is like trading a priceless commodity for the value of money. Learn to budget your money into wealth through investments so you can have your personal time back. Think of your skill to budget money as a trade off to buy back freedom of time.

Today's Tip – Year One (1); S.M.A.R.T. Goal setting and... -

S.M.A.R.T. Goals again? To refresh your memory with a sum up.


Next month starts a full new year of possibilities. It may not be January, but it will be a chance for you to look at your life and create a fiscal year for yourself. A fiscal year is your “Financial Year”, or “Budget Year”. Most of the time we are going to refer to your fiscal year as your financial year. Let us look at it more as in a “Success year”. Since your time is valuable and should be budgeted out properly to see your dreams come to life.

These goals are a map of your future. They help you set your destination one step at a time. They also help mark your distance on that destination. How far have you come, where did you start? These are all wonderful examples of a good strong goal list.

Services; Marketing (PR – Public Relations)

Today's Tip – Services; Marketing (PR – Public Relations)

How does a client get noticed? That's where a PR Firm comes into play. What is PR? Public relations (PR) is the practice of managing the flow of information between an individual or an organization and the public. Public relations provides an organization or individual exposure to their audiences using topics of public interest and news items that do not require direct payment. The aim of public relations by a company often is to persuade the public, investors, partners, employees, and other stakeholders to maintain a certain point of view about it, its leadership, products, or of political decisions. Common activities include speaking at conferences, winning industry awards, working with the press, and employee communication.

One client we have been working with is who has hired our firm to push his name through the media. Getting some exposure using newspapers, magazines, etc. Over the last month we have placed his information into certain avenues. Most a stand-up comedian, he also has done commercials for NY weather channels, episodic web series, and written scripts.

The idea is to get your information in front of as many eyes as possible. Both quickly and constantly. Through having representation you gain a sense of value. Calling these people up on your own is one thing, though having a group of people who have already grown a relationship with these outlets is another. Let yourself concentrate on your talent, your craft, your company and give other people the power to promote that brand. It will help in the long run.

Services; Marketing (7P's of Marketing)

Today's Tip – Services; Marketing (7P's of Marketing)

What is marketing? Since your brand should be handled like a product. A great way to look at marketing is “Product Marketing” which deals with the "7P"'s of marketing; Product, Pricing, Place, Promotion, Packaging, Positioning & People. You must have a product. That product is your brand. Or otherwise known as your company's name. Pricing, what is the charge for your product? Placement, getting the item into “Markets” (Areas of sales / zones / etc.), Promotion is combined with “Advertisement” and “Exposure”. Packaging, this is the look of your brand. Positioning, where your brand stands best to be seen (Direction / location). And finally people. Without people you are the greatest invention in the world hiding in a whole where no one knows you exist! People help you get it out there!

How can help with marketing? How our blogs are guides, we are the tools to accomplishing those needed tasks. We teach our clients how to market so they can continue making use of our time and their money. We take on the 7P's of Marketing. We have always said to research, research, research!!!

There is never harm in time spent on knowledge. Learn what you should, could, or would be doing if you had the direction.

Everyone has a dream; not everyone has direction. We all want something of ourselves there is no question of that. In fact, most people have a great talent, skill, dream, etc. Where to start though? Being the dream is one thing, owning that dream is another. As we've worked with talented people over our company's life there is one thing that stands out. People are truly passionate about what they believe in. Who they are, want to be, and even where they would like to see themselves. Some clients love music more than anything and want their band to be the biggest band there is. With life, like life, there are always more than three sides to any venture. When it comes to a successful business venture; such as a band, or business, or personal goal. One must realize the triangle of success.

The Entrepreneur (The money person)
The Talent (The skill / craft / idea)
The Manager (The Direction)

Let us help you with the direction!
