2018 New Year, New Marketing!

  Discover 6 Ways to Use Great Creative in 2018 to Gain the Attention of Your Market By Robyn M. Sachs Finish this sentence: "Certs with Retsyn gives you ___, ____, _____ ______ ___ ____." If you were able to supply the missing words "two, two, two mints in one," you are a living, breathing example of the effectiveness of advertising creative. This Certs breath mint ad ran decades ago, yet most people can still spout it off as if they had just viewed it this morning. This creative scored well because the message was concise, memorable, benefit-orientated, frequent and distinctly unique. Of those five attributes, being distinctly unique is the most important. “We're fighting for attention in a noisy world,” says RMR President Robyn Sachs. “Surveys show that readers, viewers and listeners give you only two-seconds to gain their attention.

Include a Go-to-Market Approach in Your Marketing Arsenal

Putting Your Product on the Fast-Track to Success: The Importance of a Go-to-Market Approach in Your Marketing Arsenal By Robyn Sachs, President and CEO of RMR & Associates   Integrated marketing approaches have skyrocketed in popularity over the last several years, for a largely two-fold reason 1) their emphasis on 'matching the vehicle to the goal' enables a more efficient, results-driven process focused on specific needs. 2) This process leverages an organization's budget to ensure they are receiving the ultimate 'bang for their buck.'   While integrated marketing approaches can and should be implemented at several stages of a company or product's evolution, one critical phase is in the early days of a market launch, entry, and growth. Known as a "Go-to-Market Strategy", this process combines key elements of integrated marketing activity to deliver a comprehensive, structured plan designed to achieve maximum market success.   So, how does a Go-to-Market [...]

6 Steps for Building a Better Press Release

    Did you catch RMR’s recent column in Washington SmartCEO Magazine? If not, the article can be found below. You can also find all of RMR’s articles from the magazine here.   There are some simple steps that can make your writing more readable and your Press Release more likely to be noticed by a Reporter.   1.  Writing is all about strategy. Think of the evening news anchor who drops hints before a commercial break about the weather forecast without giving away the goods. Or a really good movie trailer intended to get you to pony up your $10 to see the film. The approach is no different than for any other professional writing, particularly for a Press Release. It's all about strategy.   You want an editor, reporter or potential customer to pay attention to you, right? Then every word you write should answer this reader's question: [...]

The List, the Offer, the Creative: The 1-2-3’s of Direct Marketing

Did you catch RMR’s recent column in Washington SmartCEO Magazine?  If not, the article can be found below.  You can also find all of RMR’s articles from the magazine here. Direct marketing can be a huge asset to any organization. Whether online or printed, unlike advertising, it can be sent to a carefully selected audience. Unlike public relations, you have total control over the message and the delivery. Unfortunately, it can also be tricky. In a medium where a 3% response rate is considered a success, you want to be sure to leverage every tool you can. The best way to do that is to pay attention to three basic components of your campaign: the list, the offer and the creative.   1.) The list The list alone is responsible for 60% of your campaign’s success or failure. You may have a compelling offer and great creative, but if it’s [...]

The Power of 1:1 Marketing: Networking

Did you catch RMR’s recent column in Washington SmartCEO Magazine?  If not, the article can be found below.  You can also find all of RMR’s articles from the magazine here. There’s no question that advertising and public relations – when done well – are essential, effective methods for reaching large groups of people, some of whom will become your customers.  But to be noticed, heard and remembered, nothing beats the power of 1:1 marketing. Now hold on just a second…I’m not suggesting you go door-to-door armed with your business cards and literature like an eager politician – though that is a type of 1:1 marketing.  And a powerful one at that!  Voters are far more likely to choose a candidate after they’ve met in person.  Why else would politicians go to such lengths to shake thousands of strange hands and cuddle scores of unknown babies? Networking at meetings and events. [...]

8 Surefire Steps to Better Sales Collateral

Someone has asked for more information about your company, product, or service. This opportunity calls for good sales collateral. Forget the "nobody reads them" myth. Truth is a customer with a problem to solve will read your brochure to see if you can help. Sure, it takes a salesperson to close the deal on a big-ticket item or customized service. But powerful collateral keeps you in the running. Like websites, a weak one can eliminate you before the first cut.   So here are eight techniques guaranteed to put more selling power into your sales collateral: Start selling on the cover. A marketing brochure must answer the prospect's number one question: "What's in this for me?" Waste no time getting to the answer. Put a marketing message on the cover. If you can clearly and creatively express the main benefit, so much the better. Sell benefits, not features. Why should [...]
