No time for marketing! I have a business to run, you know…

“Augh…Marketing! Not today…maybe tomorrow. Wait, I have meetings tomorrow..maybe the day after tomorrow. Then there’s that staff meeting and then inventory, okay next week…yes, next week I’ll focus on marketing and updating the website, next week…promise! ” No matter the size of the business…doctors and lawyers to small boutique owners and hair salons, the cry…

It’s Back to School Time…here’s our Top 10 finds!

It’s that time of year again, when kids literally start to prune from being in the pool to long and Mom’s are starting to anticipate seeing the light at the end of the proverbial tunnel…it’s Back to School Time! Woohoo…these words usually spark both excitement and dread among parents and students alike. But this year we hope to make it just…

Ooohhh Awapuhi…you amazing little charmer!

Say it with me now…Ahhhh-waaah-pooo-eeee. (Awapuhi)…yep that’s the amazing conditioning treatment from the hair guru’s at Paul Mitchell. I had the pleasure  honor of experiencing one of these deep conditioning treatments earlier this week at an ivitation only (aka pseudo-crasher) Paul Mitchell event at Giavanni’s Salon & Spa. My Paul Mitchell concierge for the evening was…

Making Business Personal…with a Giveaway!

If you’re a loyal follower of our blog you have probably noticed that we like to mix things up every now and then. THIS is one of those times…on our last trip through the great state of Oklahoma meeting with clients and to do a little scouting for some (more) excellent shopping stops. We (luckily) found a…

Wait…what? Where did the time go?

Wow, can NOT believe it has been almost a month since my last post. Seriously…where did the past four weeks go? I vaguely remember something about a family member graduating from College (way to go girl!) a couple out of town work trips..and maybe even a Prom or something thrown in. But wow how quickly the time can…

Tuna and Grits….generations of Bahamians can’t be wrong!

Grits…what comes to your mind when you hear that word? A red headed 70’s icon, named Flo and her famous words directed to Mel…or, if you’re from the South, it sparks a Pavlovian response of mouth watering desire for the creamy concoction…buttered, peppered, honey added…any way you dish it up, good Southern living involves Grits! While…

Marketing Organization Needs

To-Do Lists…or Post-its?!

Over the weekend I decided that I am going to throw out my typical (although tried and true) way of organizing my thoughts….on Post-It’s! And go back to making  lists. Yes I know, making lists is a great way to keep track of items that “pop” into your thoughts, or to purge the brain of all it’s…

Former Blog “Stalker” Shares….

Blogs…..who doesn’t love a “good” Blog?…..I know we sure do. Heck, we even have a list of them over on the right that highlights our favorites. But why is it we stop by our favorite bloggers, enjoy their latest creations….yet the majority of us never take time to officially “follow” them? I used to religiously…

fowl cay visit from raw marketing

Details…details….details…

Earlier this week I came across a local business that left such an impression with me on how NOT to run a business, that it got me thinking…when did paying attention to detail become “an option” with businesses? Now, don’t get me wrong…I completely understand about being busier than a three-armed paper hanger…and that most of…

If a little is good…a lot must be AWESOME!!!

In my endless research for clients and making sure that we are providing them the newest trends in branding & cross-promotion opportunities….I have started to notice an interesting trend with other Marketing Managers. What’s the trend you ask…(with an annoyed tone from some)…well that would be the trend of over promoting a product to the point…
