Marketing Eye

It seems so often that we focus on external perceptions of what we should or shouldn’t be doing. 

For me, 2016 is about, sharing what I know, giving all I got, and helping others achieve their goals. 

I’ve always felt that I’ve lived with abundance, even as a kid I had the sort of personality that led me to help, share, and try to look at the “bright side of life”. But this year I decided to step it up a notch, and actively consolidated my abundance philosophy across all aspects of my life and business in a tangible way.

Here’s how I’m doing it, and you can do it too:

I've never thought much about getting married... until I met the owner of Elite Pour La Vie in Atlanta. She shared her vision with me on why she was building Atlanta's most exclusive wedding and evening gown dress boutique.

Elite Pour La Vie features many high-end fashion designers such as Baracci, Marchesa, Zuhair Murad, Charbel Zoe, Mac Duggal, and Johnathan Kayne.

The countdown to Christmas is on and while we are all still enjoying the Spring Racing Carnival, there are a few large retailers who have already put together their Christmas displays and have started their Christmas marketing campaigns.

So what should you do? Do you start early because they have, or do you wait until it is closer to Christmas?

I have put together a reatil marketing "TO DO" list to help you decide what actions to take. 

1. Connect with customers early

In today’s marketing world, there are so many ways to connect with your customers, and when it comes to marketing at Christmas time, the earlier, the better. Especially when it comes to those big ticket items that require some research.

Start sending incentives and loyalty packages out in October, to lure customers to your store over your competitors. Make sure your customers know all about the latest products, and give them reason to purchase early to ensure that they don’t miss out.

Why Black Fridays are black days for marketing

Black Friday is an example of marketing gone horribly wrong. To me they seem to bring out the worst in humanity; fights over televisions, people stepping on fellow human beings as they fall just to get to the deal quicker, ugly language and uglier behavior all in the name of a bargain.

After Thanksgiving, a holiday in which life is celebrated, it seems life is once again commoditised, the thanks is forgotten and the giving expected not earned.

Retail Marketing Ideas For Xmas Trading

There are a lot of retailers out there hurting - real bad! With a global financial crisis, it seems that retailers have been hardest hit and on top of that, the added burden of new marketing techniques seem to be almost impossible to keep up with. It also doesn't help that online sales of retail products seem to be all the go and quite often consumers can get the same product, cheaper from Asia or the US, just by buying online.

However, there is some positive news. With the Retailers Association pushing consumers to go back to buying from  local shops and Xmas just weeks away, retail should be on the 'up'.

Retail is dying

Retail is dying. Is it? Is the economy really as bad as everyone is saying. Last night on the ABC, they confirmed that advertising spend is down and this is a real indicator of how well the economy is going.
