When asked what I do, I used to say, “I sell selling who do not like to see.” For the past few years I say, “I sell selling selling to people who like to do whatt they do but do not like to have to sell what they do.”

Hi, my name is Brian Konieczny and I am the Founder of _______ __________ Shaved Ice. We provide over 80 different flavors of shaved ice, and also have additional products to accompany this refreshing treat.

(13) Stefan (Marketing Magician) Drew says:

This is my approach and it seems to work quite well … it takes a bit longer than 30 seconds but as it is a story people stop and listen ….but I would welcome your comments.

Hi, I’m Stefan, I’m a Marketing Magician and I want to tell you a story.

Last year business owner, Stuart, got on a train in London enroute to his Glasgow office. Having several hours to fill he got out his latop and Googled a search term important to him.

On Page One of Google Stuart found me listed in the organic listing on the left hand hand side of the page …….with a Google ad on the right hand side of the page.

Stuart visited my website, liked what he saw and immediately emailed me. I phoned his mobile and before he got off the train in Scotland Stuart had become my client.

Stuart has now been a client for a year and his business is expanding rapidly despite the economic downturn.

This is an example of how I use low cost marketing to grow my business, and that of my clients, and why the BBC refer to me as the Marketing Magician in their broadcasts.

My name is Stefan, I’m a Marketing Magician … here’s my card … please call me when you need marketing help.

I always wonder how to plant my name into their heads during networking. Exchanging name cards is not helping, they’ll hold your card but doesn’t mean they hold your name in their hearts….

Here is my 30-60 second commercial I would like feedback on:

Hello- My name is Paul Stone
I am a seasoned professional with documented success. I have over 20 years of successful management experience, mostly in healthcare. I help companies start new business units and solve operational and system-wide problems.

At North Kansas City Hospital I oversee 130 support services facilities staff. In 1999 when I accepted my current department-head position, turn-over was 85%. By 2006, myself and a dedicated team of people had reduced that turnover by over 60%.

I have been recognized for excellence in leveraging diversity to achieve common goals. I am interested in expanding my experience into project management in either healthcare or non healthcare industries.

I am intentionally innovative and I have never had an employer experience buyers remorse for hiring me. I would like the opportunity to meet each of you and discuss my unique ability to contribute to the important goals of your company. Thanks again.

while most folks may not realize it we run ads for our radio stations on a constant basis.these range from liners pitching stations to listeners to the radio everywhere ads.
radio is still very alive as music stations we have something going constantly and that is human emotion.sad songs-happy songs-sing along songs and we rent our listeners ears to our advertisers over and over and over.
advertising messages should be clear honest and well composed.
