‘Smarketing’ Harmonizes Sales & Marketing Departments

&

It’s no great business secret that sales and marketing departments are often at odds with one another. The problem usually starts with the idea that marketing and sales are needed at different points of the customer purchasing cycle. This attitude that “we’re only responsible for our portion of the cycle” creates the feeling of being on two separate teams. Management needs...

Back to Basics: 5 Ways to Attract Attention to Your Home Biz

B

Time to revisit some basics. I think it’s good to do that on occasion, don’t you? Frankly I think everyone should make a point to do it, at least every other month or so, myself included. It can be easy to get lost in the day to day of running your business, and find you’re glossing over the basics or missing them altogether, either because you think you already have them...

Roar Like a Lion, Do the Unexpected; Unique Advertising isn’t for Wusses

R

Imagine enjoying a morning run on the local trail and seeing a neat 3-D art stenciling of a wooden bridge over a gaping cliff right on the path. Like, woah. Where’d that come from?

Disclaimer: I may or may not be slightly overtired from moving. And I may or may not have had a glass of wine very recently while doing a bit of work. OK, fine. I am and I did.
