The Persona

One of the most critical needs of every business BEFORE they start a marketing plan is a well defined persona.  Without it you are guessing in the dark.  Your potential clients becomes anyone and everyone.  You grasp for whatever person will buy your product or service.  Never being truly satisfied with the business you dreamed…

This was an incredibly fun business to work with. They had been around for many years, even considered a staple in the community. They participated…

Define “Big”

Untraditional Results

I get questioned often, “Liliana, how can you call yourself a full-service agency when you have such a small staff and some partners? Isn’t that untraditional?” That would be correct. Our business model is untraditional, but so are our results. Our model works. Really well. Just ask my clients, they will happily tell you. So…

Drying Paint

Just because you watch the paint dry doesn’t mean it will dry any faster. The same is true with marketing. It’s a process, and it can’t be rushed, trying to do so will only ruin your final project. Ever been a part of painting a room in a house? Fascinating isn’t it? That one room…

Your Custom Home

If you have spent any time looking for a Media and Marketing agency you know what to expect. You have been taken to the pretty offices, you have been schmoozed at the nice lunches, you have heard about their expensive accounts.

The Magic Bullet

If marketing was a magic bullet, I would sell it. I would be rich beyond rich. Unfortunately, there is no magic bullet. There is, however, a recipe that, when followed time after time, will produce results. I know this from growing up in Iowa. No, I did not grow up on a farm, but my…

Plan B Marketing

We fix what others break. It started as a joke several years ago but somehow it stuck and it comes up often in our LGM meetings. We fix what others break. What does plan B mean to us? The same thing it means to you. Your plan A for growing the business didn’t work. Turns…

Horton Hears a Who…Do You?

Do you hear your clients? Marketing in the digital space can feel like our friend Horton who was trying to connect with Who-ville. The big-hearted elephant couldn’t see the tiny city of Who-ville and had to rely on the things he heard. In the end, he navigated the crazy jungle and brought Who-ville to the…

The Little Screen Strategy

Today it’s all about owning real estate on the little screen. Do you carry your radio with you everywhere you go? Your TV? Your computer? Yes, actually, you do. Your smart phone is with you every moment of every day. The same is true for almost every potential client you connect with. That said, ask…
