From Concept To Creation, We Help Our Clients Succeed

Matt AlestraWhen we set out to make solar social it seemed like an overwhelming task. Ralph and his team helped us plan for the short term so that we could get our app up and running and start making money, but he also kept his eye on the big picture so we could easily add features later. Now our clients with solar appliances from New Jersey to Hawaii can access their social data and share their savings on all their social networks.

Chris RooneyIt’s important to us that we convey the quality of our services to our customers, but our old website and business cards weren’t doing that as effectively as they could have been. Michael helped us bring our brand together so that our logo and colors reflect the vision we want to express. In a competitive service business, good design helps ensure that people understand the value we can provide beyond just a typical dentist. Dr. Chris Rooney, Rooney & Rooney

leanne-stewartCarol Lynn goes through your website with a fine tooth comb but instead of pointing out all your “gray hairs” she shows you ways to “restyle” your website. She’s up on all the latest trends, yet she only recommends what will work specifically for you. Take it from someone who wasted months waiting for a way to fix their website, save yourself the pain of lost business and hire Carol Lynn to evaluate your website now.

dino-doganI worked with Ralph and Carol Lynn on the rebranding of Triberr’s social media pages and our ongoing marketing. They designed our pages from Facebook to Twitter to Google Plus to LinkedIn so that we’d have a strong, consistent image across all our social networks. They also helped us refine our marketing messages and put together a long-term plan for building and improving Triberr. Their enthusiasm for Triberr and talent for marketing has been a real asset.

Ryan Hanley Can’t Shut His Big, Fat Face. And That’s A Good Thing For Your Content Marketing.

Both Ralph and I have had the pleasure of being on Ryan’s Content Warfare podcast so today Ryan joins us on ours to talk about what he knows best: content!

If you’re on the content marketing bandwagon and want some insight into taking it up a notch, or if you aren’t convinced and need a push that will get you jumping in with both feet, this is the episode for you.

Ryan is all about challenging the status quo and that’s exactly what we love around here. Listen as we talk about what content really is, how to create it (and why), digital sharecropping and more.

How To Be Effective At Social Marketing Without Content Curation

Modern marketing wisdom goes something like this:

If you want to be successful at social marketing then you need to share other people’s content 80% of the time and your own content 20% of the time.

I don’t know what the source of this dumb advice is but I would very much like to know who decided that this was the magic ratio and why it’s repeated as marketing gospel.

Here’s why content curation is not doing you any favors… and some practical, actionable ideas you can try instead.

Get On Board With Pinterest And Synergize The Impact To The Next Level With Alisa Meredith

Are you on board with Pinterest? If not, Alisa Meredith will inspire you. She talks about how it can work even for a non-visual business and how you can think differently about this underutilized tool.

We also talk about how to get started with online marketing, avoid internet marketing fatigue and stay in a jargon-free zone. If you think you don’t have the time, don’t have the money and don’t know how to get your marketing working online, Alisa has some great insights to share.

Improve Your Marketing By Tapping Into Your Failures

So many times businesses fail to gain momentum on their marketing because they want every campaign to be flawless. When a campaign takes an unintended left turn, a business becomes hesitant to try again.

While you should do everything you can within reason to avoid failures, missteps in marketing are inevitable.

I want to share three of our recent failures so that you can (hopefully) laugh along with us and perhaps learn from our mistakes so you don’t make your own. Or if you do make mistakes, you can learn to pick yourself up and keep going.

How You’re Being Tricked Into Wasting Your Marketing Dollars On Ineffective Programs

Have you seen the $4,000 toothbrush?

It’s real, I swear.

And it begs the question: what makes a toothbrush worth $4,000?

The answer is pretty simple, actually. It’s worth $4,000 because that’s what someone is willing to pay for it. But when it comes to business the idea of value still lies in the return that a product or service yields. That makes it more challenging to work in the B2B space, because it’s a lot harder to sell something that doesn’t promise a better outcome.

And yet, paradoxically, it’s also a lot easier to trick you, as a business, into spending your marketing budget on something completely worthless. Today I want to talk about one of the most common marketing tricks that will get YOU to part with your hard earned dollars, all in the interest of improving your own marketing. And why you should shut your wallet every time you encounter it.
