We have compiled results from the over 48 surveys submitted by participants since the inception of this program in July; and are proud to share the results! 90% of the respondents rated the classes as Excellent, 70% attended multiple classes within the series, and 97.3% said they would recommend classes to their friends and colleagues.
Each class covers a specific topic and is focused on teaching ways that small businesses can market using leading-edge technology without “breaking the bank” or having to hire a large staff to execute the plan. The classes (Blogging, Social Media, Two Mails: Direct Mail | e-mail, and Search Engine Optimization) are limited to a maximum of 8 people to keep interaction at a high level and allow for personalized teaching. For details and registration on the remaining classes, click here.

Our valued graduates let us know that they are looking for additional class offerings as well. We are currently creating content for the most requested subjects and will offer continuing education in the first quarter of 2015. The new curriculum will include more guest lecturers and expanded content from the our original series. In case you missed one of the original sets or would like to recommend someone, we will continue to offer the introduction of Marketing For Small Business Series once each quarter in 2015.

Houston, TX-News agencies continue to report that we are in economic recovery and that commerce is booming. As a business owner, I’m still uncertain it’s going to stay the course. A recent survey conducted by CNN-Manta polled 1,500 small business owners nationwide and the economy remains the number one concern (28%)
It’s hard not to be a bit skeptical however, we are seeing some very positive trends. Many of our clients & partners businesses have grown this year. We too have enjoyed growth in our business for 2014.
21% of participants of The CNN-Manta survey said that growing sales is their number one concern. As a full service marketing production company, we appreciate that concern. The questions surrounding how exactly a company goes about growing sales is daunting. Hiring additional sales people, adding expensive equipment or investing in expanding your marketing strategy are all viable options.
Marketing to grow sales has changed so radically over the past 5-years and it continues to evolve. Data is crucial to the success of any marketing strategy and data compilation is one of our core competencies. As many of you may remember, we compiled the Harris, Travis, Dallas and Tarrant County Business Guides for over 30 years.
Today, we are one of the largest Consumer Banktruptcy Data compilers in the United States. Our over 20 million record database contains information on the chapter, filings and discharges. We gather data directly from courthouses across the nation daily, then enhance the data using the USPS Coding Accuracy Support System (CASS) Software.
We also offer consumer, business, and residential data and provide an amazing tool called The Snapshot. It is a comprehensive data analysis used to identify trends within your customer base. It will help to identify criteria that will allow you to search for more new clients, and ensure your marketing messages “speak” to your audience. Read more about our data expertise in this issue.
Over the summer we conducted a Seminar Series on how to market your business. We held four, 1 hour classes that educated participants on blogging, social media, search engine optimization and the two mails, direct mail & e-mail. Each of the classes sold out quickly. We received tremendous reviews and have been asked to offer the classes again. We listened. Details about Fall seminars can be found by clicking here.
We hope that the economic recovery continues for the long haul and we are thankful to our clients and partners for their business. Have a great fall season!
