Certified Master Speaker and Marketing Maven, Jean Kuhn, knows your local small business owners are not making enough money. Let’s help them. Look around, how many of your local businesses have closed their doors in the past 5 years? MORE >Small Business Owners (SBOs) get so caught up in the daily grind of running their business, taking care of customers, employees, worrying about payroll, and paying the bills, they don’t have time to figure out how easy it can be to increase their income. I know it’s true, because it was true for me when I first became self-employed and it took me 17 years to figure it out.
Every business owner has revenue streams in their business they have either forgotten about, don’t see, or don’t have the time to implement. Countless (SBOs) close their businesses because they don’t make enough money. While I can't see dead people, I can see revenue potential, it's my "sixth sense.“
What if I could show your SBOs where they are losing money in their business?
What if I could show your SBOs the revenue stream(s) they can’t see in their business?
When a SBO thrives and makes more money, they put it back into the local economy, they create jobs, and the local government gains more tax dollars. A true, win/win.

Staying on top of social and cultural change is difficult. It requires thoughtful observation, reflection, and the ability to connect dots that may go unnoticed in many cases. Similarly, being able to distinguish a trend from a short-lived fit of social interest can make the difference between a meaningful campaign or marketing platform, and a one-hit wonder. Understanding the difference between fads and trends is critical for all organizations. Unfortunately, many decision makers seem to be unaware of their important differences. MORE >Both fads and trends play an important role in a marketing effort’s success, but they aren’t the same thing and they need to be treated differently. If they are not, leaders risk burning out adapting to every fad, and critical trends required for a brand’s long-term survival may be missed. So, what are the key differences?

A brand is more than one iconic symbol, it’s a system of interconnected images, actions and signs that create a response in your consumers. While it is often put down to something as simple as logo design (which is anything but simple, in fact), identity and branding work extends beyond the creation of a company logo or trademark. The identity of any particular corporation, product or service encompasses a variety of materials including business cards, marketing materials, staff uniforms, advertisements, commercials, web presence, etc. All of this is created to establish an identity that the consumer comes to value beyond the direct benefits of the company. MORE >A part of establishing the company brand, the identity work is important in conveying the principles, ideas and standards of the organization for which it is developed. Designers work together with strategists, copywriters, marketing directors and a host of other professionals to ensure that a brand identity is communicated effectively and efficiently from the client to the consumer. And in an age of social media and assumed shared interests, the communication is increasingly a multi-faceted conversation.
