Don’t Outspend Them, Outsmart Them
Budget should never get in the way of great marketing. In a world where most advertisers don’t have huge budgets to trounce the competition, where small advertisers are up against deeper pockets, and where not–for–profit communicators struggle to make an impact, there is a way to gain remarkable returns. This presentation explains how to outsmart the competition, not outspend them. All it takes is a different mindset and a different kind of creativity. This presentation is media-rich and demonstrates amazing ideas from around the world from organizations that chose to spend creativity, not dollars.
Customer Service IS Marketing
Customer Service = Profit. So many companies either don’t understand this rule, or need help implementing it. Great companies know it’s not enough to have customers leave satisfied – the key is to have them leave happy. That is a step beyond service. Superb customer service creates intense customer loyalty and fuels referrals. This talk helps companies or organizations to create emotional connections with customers. This presentation includes inspiring stories from around the world, and examples of incredible and unexpected customer service ideas that your audience can implement immediately.
The Power of Emotion in Marketing
This presentation explains why your customers have to feel your message, not just understand it. If you want to truly connect with your customers – and potential customers – you must employ Emotion in your marketing. Most communication is just flat information – aimed solely at the head. Yet we make 80% of our decisions with our heart. This talk helps your audience understand the difference between typical information-based marketing versus the powerful impact of emotionally-charged messages. The talk also shows remarkable examples from around the world where advertisers and not-for-profit organizations have used Emotion to achieve outstanding results.
If You Don’t Have A Story, You Don’t Have A Business
The company with the best story wins. This presentation is about the power of Storytelling. The smartest, most effective marketers in the world use storytelling to persuade. We are all hard-wired to love stories, and every product and service has a compelling story to tell. This talk helps your audience understand how to build stories and gives them the tools to start using storytelling in their own businesses. This presentation also includes powerful examples of Canadian and international marketing campaigns that used storytelling in surprising and enormously effective ways.
