  15. Use the Real World Better

  16. 13 - When Designing Premiums…

  17. 14 - When Trying to Get Media… • Be available by phone, email and in-person 24/7. • Their deadline is the most important factor in your getting good coverage. • Have an expert ready for a telephone interview, rather than you giving the quote.

  18. 15 - Localize the campaign

  19. 16 - Ask Fans to Promote You • Word of Mouth marketing is by far the most effective. • Not controllable, but it can be initiated. • If you don’t ask, fewer folks will talk about how great you are. • All it takes is a request, but a reward can spread the flames.

  20. 17 - Don’t Be Afraid To Be Creative

  21. 18 - Content Marketing Strategy • Spread your intellectual property, not just your marketing message. Consider some of these methods: • Columns in corporate newsletters. • Take home flyers of helpful tips for schools. • Creating an RSS feed for sites to include your content on their site.

  22. 19 - Use a “Tag” as a “Tagline”

  23. 20 - Save letterhead for letters. • Have a preprinted or electronic shell to use for more casual documents.

  24. 21 - Sell Old Stuff as Vintage

  25. 22 - Use Your Lifelines • Phone a Friend • Ask the Audience • Narrow the Choices • Change the Query

  26. 23 - Convert to PDF • Use “live type” not image settings • New Microsoft Office includes PDF-ability. • Online services can convert one or two documents. Never lose fonts or formatting.

  28. 25 - Record Yourself

  32. 29 - Emily Post Is Right • Handwritten notes and personal letters go a long way.

  33. 30 - Set A Goal • A *real* quantifiable goal for everything you do – it lets you judge if you idea/strategy/tactic could fulfill the goal, and, after you execute – if it worked.

  34. 31 - Unify your collateral

  35. 32 - Try Index Cards

  36. 33 - Answer the Phone • It seems simple. • It seems easy. • Not everyone does it.

  37. 34 - Different logo versions

  38. 35 - Reduce, Reuse and Recycle • Trim off the part that’s no longer appropriate. • Make pocket cards from old printed materials. • Have a printer “pad” letterhead with the out-dated part cut off. • Use the cover in a three-ring binder sleeve.

  45. 42 - Custom Holiday Cards

  46. 43 - Rewrite the leader’s bio • Use simple English words and expression. • Convey a sense of personality in the bio • Get people interested in the company because they feel something about the leader.
