Starting a new business is incredibly exciting, but a bit scary too. I remember years ago being completely inspired by an advertisement that was placed by in the New York Times about why 50,000 businesses choose to start up in New York each year.
Every year during March and April the March Madness NCAA Basketball Tournament is watched admittedly by millions. Since 1939 this popular tournament has gained momentum without turning back.


The NCAA, a non- profit organization, has mastered marketing of the March Madness tournament. From office tournaments, to hard core fans, to first time watchers basketball buzz is in full swing.


Advertisers and Marketers are using this sporting event to capture viewers and learn lessons of how content marketing can be leveraged. Through commercials, gear, word of mouth, brackets and more March Madness is the talk of the month due to successful marketing and advertising.


This tournament is an Advertisers and Marketers dream. That being said, us experts can learn a few new tricks from this tactical approach. Below are a few important lessons we all need to learn.
Out of sight, out of mind — it’s an old saying, but it’s especially true about customer relations. We have all been given something with a logo on it, and we often use them every day. But how do you know that what you are doing with your marketing placement is working? How do you continue to ensure that your brand is at the forefront of a customer’s mind, and how do you stand out from the competition? Here we give you 10 good reasons why we believe that every marketing strategy can benefit from including promotional products as part of the overall campaign.
Without doubt, every company has a marketing problem. 
For years, Marketing Eye stayed with the same brand messages and continued to push through to the market key points that we believed were different to what everybody else was saying and doing.

The problem is that when you are online everyone can see for themselves what you are saying and doing, and for competitors to copy, it really is quite simple.

All of a sudden, prospects where ringing up and saying "oh, you do the same as such and such".
When asked today what I think a Marketing Executive would need to have that they may not have needed a few years ago, my answer was simple. "A Marketing Executive must be a social media expert."
Does your eco product, sell as well as your other brands? If not, it;s time to think about the way you market it.

Marketers and businesses are treating eco brands as ‘brand extensions’ the way Coke treats it’s Zero and Diet products.  But eco, green or ethical products cannot be treated in this way.  Coke’s eco plastic bottles still contain a beverage with a long list of health impacts – and people looking for healthy, sustainable alternatives will never reach for a bottled soft drink.

Life is about story telling. It is about story creation. It is about living life like there is no tomorrow. Even when life slows down, when children take a chunk of your patience and when time seems limited, life is there to be loved. Love your children, your family, your friends, work and colleagues and tell the stories of how each and every one brings out the best in you.

Your life is your brand. You can direct it in in any way you choose to deliver your personal message.

A few years ago, I began traveling internationally once a month. While the jet lag had me struggling to keep awake in meetings, it was only secondary to my concern of swollen ankles which eventually extended right up my leg. It would take days to go down and I started experiencing pain that wouldn't go away.

I had a problem.

We hit the road running in Atlanta and haven't looked back since.

In just six short months, we have embarked on changing the mindsets of many small businesses in Atlanta, that have been pressured by the Global Financial Crisis and are reluctant to ease their way out and invest in marketing.

As we know, many companies that increased their investment in marketing during this period grew significantly. It's just like when everyone is walking one way and you are walking the other. You all of a sudden stand out and people take notice of you. If they like what they see, then you make connections.

The past few months, we have been working with one of the most impressive companies in the US - Accretive Solutions. They provide consulting, staffing and outsourcing solutions to companies and have 11 offices throughout the country.

What impresses me most about Accretive Solutions is their people. If you ask any of their clients, they all say that it's their people that set Accretive Solutions apart from competitors. They don't hire juniors, and instead invest in people with experience and passion for doing challenging, interesting work.
