I have lived and traveled overseas and I have lived and traveled all over North America. I have noticed many changes in the business and economic landscape over the years and, while we are indeed living in challenging economic times, we are also currently living in a time of unprecedented opportunity for Small Business Owners.
Since 2008, I have lived in Mount Shasta, California, a small town way up in the northern part of the state. Mount Shasta is surrounded by many other little towns and small cities and every single one of them suffers from the same hideous blemish: Empty storefronts by the dozens.
These skeletal remains blot the horizon, lifeless reminders of too many failed entrepreneurial dreams. What once housed small businesses bustling with activity, commerce and community are now just empty shells daring other ambitious dreamers to give it their best shot.
While this trend is certainly a testament to our struggling economy, I’ve also noticed another alarming trend: Passive business owners who operate with a “Field Of Dreams” mentality – Build it and they will come.
Unfortunately, that is not the case. If you run your own small business, you must realize that regardless of what type of product or service you are selling, YOU are in the Marketing Business!
While some small businesses thrive and go on to become big businesses, far too many of them eek out a meager existence until the once-passionate entrepreneurs regress to frustrated, stressed-out business owners.
Then, there are the small businesses that never quite catch on, crashing and burning before the shell-shocked owners know what hit ‘em. Often, this experience sends the once-confident entrepreneurs scurrying back to the safe, 9-to-5 confines of Cubicle Nation.
This is a shame. With BAM! Small Biz Consulting, I aim to help your small business avoid this.
Your entrepreneurial dreams are far too important to leave to chance. As a small business owner, you must actively engage your customers and prospects through focused, consistent, remarkable branding efforts and targeted, memorable marketing strategies.
You must utilize both the proven offline tactics as well as the cutting edge, online tools available such as dynamic websites, blogging and social media. Trying to operate with anything less is doing yourself, your employees, your customers and your business a disservice.
When you hire BAM! Small Biz Consulting, I will teach you what branding is, why it’s important and how to define and articulate your company’s unique brand. I will teach you essential rules of marketing, best practices, and how to effectively use available tools to market your business in a way that connects with your ideal audience.
Together, we will get your small business into top form to square off against your fiercest competitors and attract more loyal customers.
Small Business Owners: I will help you discover your company’s unique value, and craft meaningful marketing messages that your audience will care about.
When it comes down to it, Marketing is using the right tools to reach the right audience with the right message. Yet, many Small Business Owners struggle with finding the time, the inspiration, or the words to create effective marketing strategies.
If your company is suffering due to lack of experience, enthusiasm or innovation when it comes to your branding and marketing strategies, BAM! Small Biz Consulting is an excellent solution to your problem.
My passion for branding is contagious. I demystify the concept and clearly communicate WHAT branding is, WHY it’s important to your business and HOW you can apply it to your company.
My enthusiasm for marketing is infectious. Dare I say, I even make it FUN! However, that doesn’t mean I pull any punches. When you step in the ring with BAM!, I throw hard questions that will jar your memory and force you to rethink your strategy.
Together we will define and articulate your company’s Brand Promise, craft your Core Marketing Message, determine who your Ideal Customer is, where they are, and what tools and tactics are most appropriate for your business to utilize when reaching them.
We will aim to create a consistent look and message across all platforms so your prospects and customers are certain WHO your company is, WHAT you stand for, HOW you’re different and WHY they should be proud to support your business.
