You might also hear:  “I want better marketing this year- but I am not sure what to do” or, ” I have all these ideas in my head that I want to do to market my business, but I don’t know where to start”… those are also great people to tell about this class.

Color Me Purple

One thing I have learned to love and appreciate is the importance of planning.   Usually I start my business planning for the next year in Nov.  Then, I work on the finer details of my plans in Dec.

Now that December is here, I am ready for the next level of my plans. Business growth plans and the marketing plans which go along accordingly.

People who see me out and about usually comment on my organization of everything I do. In part, day plannerit starts with an old school approach: I simply use a good old fashioned weekly calendar.  I actually hate spending money on a calendar (I think they charge too much)… but, each year I am glad I invested into one. In fact, I get a good one (so I spend a bit more.) 

With all the technology out there- I know I could be ‘up with the times’ but a physical calendar works for my kinetic learning style. Also I never have to worry about a battery going out and losing all my data.

My calendars need to have a very good cover as this is used daily and it travels out and about with me.  This years calendar I chose is a nice lavendar covered one. The store did not have preferred deeper purple… so lavendar it is.   I know this is goofy- but I have to like looking at the calendar since I use it every day. 🙂

I must say, I was pleasantly treated to a good upsell at the check out counter. Rarely do I see a sales rep do a good upsell so it was a treat for me to be the recipient of a perfectly excuted one!!  LOL!   The gal checking my lavendar calendar out at the cash register said “Since you have such a nice purple calendar… you need a purple pen to to with it.  I just happen to have one right here. ”  I smiled and asked her if it had purple ink.  She said “Yes!” and did a perfect demonstration. She then handed me the pen and paper to write on. I did, and I bought.

She had no way of knowing that I used to always write important things in purple ink. It had been a long time since I had a pen like that.

So- how does this tie into my year end planning: its’ simple.  I now have my purple calendar, my purple pen to go along w/ my purple glasses, desk lamps and other accessories.  Although purple is my personal favorite color- you will find that I actually love many colors that are jewel toned. I use color very wisely – depending on my need and environmnet.

To wrap up: if you love purple, here’s what some say about your personality. This one fits me pretty well:

Purples are highly individual, fastidious, witty and sensitive, with a strong desire to be unique and different. Temperamental, expansive and artistic, a Purple person may become aloof and sarcastic when misunderstood. If you chose Purple, you tend to be unconventional, tolerant and dignified, likely to achieve positions of authority.

Have some fun and be sure to pencil in time before the end of the year to do your planning. Good leaders and good marketers know how valuble this quiet time is. It’s an investment into your future.

If you need help with marketing planning so what you do is effective, I can help. I’ve done simple 6 month at a glance ‘yellow pad’ plans- along with agency level 3,5, 10 year and exit strategy plans.  Businesses need to plan now more than ever before to create profitablity short term and long term.

Happy Planning!

Marketing Firm Sweet Marketing Solutions Develops Marketing Training Class for San Diego Roofers

One of the things I love to do is create and deliver amazing, interactive training classes. 

Hands On Training LearningHearing people talk is one thing. Being part of the learning process as a student is another.

This event was great to do.  Working on a specialized marketing strategies training day now just for the Women Entrepreneur.

Read the press release below and let me know: What would you like to learn at an event like this?

Debbra

Marketing Firm, Sweet Marketing Solutions, based in San Diego, developed and led a special Marketing Training Event on Sat. April 9, 2011 which focused on affordability and effective marketing for San Diego Roofers .

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

PRLog (Press Release)Jun 06, 2011– Sweet Marketing Solutions was founded by Debbra Sweet. Sweet’s talent as a mentor and entrepreneur is rare and visionary.  Besides an author of several books including “The Power of Leadership Book Series”, and a co-author in the New York Times Best Seller “Masters of Sales” Sweet has created an easy-to-follow marketing training series “How To” just for Roofing Contractors. Marketing Made Easy for the Roofing Contractor.
 
Sweet is not only on the board of the SDRCA, (the San Diego Roofing Contractors Association)  she is an integral aspect to the ongoing education and success of roofers. “After attending Sweet Marketing Solutions Marketing Strategies training session I was able to take the tools Debbra taught and apply it to my marketing strategies. Immediately I got results.
Who knew that something as simple as changing your approach could score you top bid for a top account?!” enthused a SDRCA associate roofer.
 
Just this year on Saturday April 9th Debbra facilitated a marketing training event developed by her for the Southern California SDRCA members. This event was sponsored by Dry Force, a local water mitigation company.  The SDRCA provides on- going education and training to the roofing members. The roofers in the SDRCA are top tradesmen, educated and up-to-date on the new materials and methods of roofing.
 
It is opportunities like the marketing training taught by Sweet Marketing Solutions that help the roofers to ascend up their tradesman ladder.Sweet Marketing Solutions takes a unique approach when consulting their clients. First and foremost, it is their goal to educate their clients by teaching them about the marketing industry and the importance of effective marketing – including effective networking. “It is essential that the roofers understand the important of networking,” states Sweet.
 
“The goal of this training session with the SDRCA is to showcase the importance and benefits of working in alliance with Dry Force to gain business and to support the community”.The purpose of the training day was to help roofers to communicate more effectively with San Diego homeowners by showcasing the benefits of working with an association member when having maintenance and new roofs installed. Sweet, who specializes in effective marketing, works with contractors and tradesmen around the country.
 
 Her ongoing success in helping contractors and tradesmen to build and maintain a successful and lucrative business through affordable and effective marketing has earned her a reputation nationally recognized by marketing gurus.Many training sessions available for contractors these days are dull and diluted by rote dialect and PowerPoint’s. Instructors are spending hours talking at you rather than talking to you. Not Debbra. Her interactive teaching style brings her workshops to life by enticing contractors to dig under the surface and ask questions. Although time may be focused on the training agenda, none is wasted as Debbra makes the time to individually address each question.

Sweet recognizes the importance of building and fostering relationships for the success and progression of businesses in the same work force. Roofing and home water mitigation are two interrelated trades. Sweet recognized the natural relationship and set up this event with Dry Force and the SDRCA roofers. “They already co-function in the same industry, so why not help each other in building reputation, trust and credibility within a common community,” states Sweet.

Sweet’s main goal for the marketing training session was to help the SDRCA and Dry force recognize the importance in building strong relationships with one another and team up to accomplish their common goal to help the home owner receive top quality service the first . “It is great to know that we can confidently recommend Dry Force to our homeowners that contact us about flooding,” proclaimed an associate roofer post-training.

As a marketing firm  Sweet Marketing Solutions takes pride helping contractors to attain and improve affordable and effective marketing skills. This was not the first or last training session Debbra will facilitate for the SDRCA.  Debbra and the team at Sweet Marketing Solutions look forwards to providing more marketing training seminars.  

Just because you are not a roofing contractor does not mean you are excluded from the opportunity to enhance your marketing skills with Debbra Sweet. Sweet’s marketing knowledge is applicable to many industries and can be tailored to best benefit you and your company.

Tuesday February 8, 2011 The voice of Power of Leadership, founder of Sweet Marketing Solutions, keynote speaker and New York Times best selling author, Debbra Sweet hit San Diego’s airwaves on the Brian Britt radio show.

POL Show Host Debbra SweetFOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

PRLog (Press Release)Feb 13, 2011 – Debbra Sweet is no stranger behind a microphone. In fact, her years of experience as a music performance major, professional speaker and radio show host clearly comes through when she’s live on air speaking about subjects she is passionate about.  On Tuesday, February 8, 2011, Debbra joined San Diego radio show host Brian Britt, on his new show called More Than Just About the Money.

The Brian Britt Show: More than Just About the Money is a show whose promise to listeners is to enlighten, educate, and deliver high value content on wealth creation. One distinct aspect about this show is that it’s not just about the money.

Wealth is a very wide subject-and most people only focus on the financial side. Although that is a key component when talking about personal wealth Brian believes
that the most successful and wealthiest people have a knowledge base and understanding that allows for work life balance.

There needs to be balance and wealth in the area of health, thinking, leadership, spirituality, business management, communication, effective marketing, family, and leisure time.

Debbra Sweet is a multifaceted entrepreneur who is known for being the founder of the national integrated marketing communications firm, located in San Diego, as well as being one of the lead authors in the Power of Leadership books as well as being the voice of the Power of Leadership radio.

Brian talks with local author and speaker Debbra Sweet about her Power of Leadership book series. Learn how networking with a plan can produce results and bring business to your company. Find out how Debbra helps her clients gain visibility, credibility and profit.

Brian and Debbra focused this show around one of the books in the power of leadership series called “The Power of Leadership in Business Networking.”  This is book 4 in a series of 12 written by Debbra Sweet and her husband Daniel Sweet. “The Power of Leadership in Business Networking.” is a book filled with experiential insight not only on leadership as well as networking for the sake of doing business… but most importantly, the book teaches the reader how to be a leader when networking. This revolutionary concept has been helping business professionals around the world understand many of the nuances that a leader needs to address in every element of networking.

Sweet also shares on the show with Brian that her belief in leadership is a bit controversial. Never one to shy away from asking tough questions, or taking an uncomfortable position on things-when it comes to the age old question of whether readers are born or whether they are made, the majority of people take the position that leaders are made. Sweet takes the position that leaders are born. On the show, she reveals why and then continues to deliver important insights to the listening audience on how they too can become empowered and be a leader today that truly does deliver results.

This show originally aired on WSRadio.com and can be heard in archives by searching for the Brian Britt radio show.
