Time to start thinking about next year!

Frenzy- a word often associated with this time of year; the approaching holiday festivities,fundraisers, fun, feasts and family leave us with little opportunity to reflect as 2009 comes to a close. We encourage you to make time to think about the resolutions you made for 2009. Did you meet them? Do you even remember them? How will next year be different?

Peppershock would love to hear your goals for next year and be an integral part of your success in 2010. If you have a specific objective in mind, or are looking for ways to jump start your business in the new year, give our Director of Client Services Shane Bauges a call (208) 461-5070, or contact him via e-mail.

In her previous working life, she was a mechanical drafter in the aerospace industry. She left to raise her two sons and returned to work in the administrative field five years ago. When not loving life at Peppershock, Cheri can usually be found either at the gym, knitting, reading, baking, or going where the wind blows her.

:: Marketing Gem of the Month ::

Where should you advertise?

Advertise where your clients will find you (online)

Consider that when most people are online, they can go where they want to go and search for what they want with amazing speed all with the click of a mouse. Make sure your name appears first on the list when they Google key terms relating to the service you provide or product you sell. How? A well-optimized blog, web site and e-newsletters with lead capture capability will help. They will generate prospects and potential customers. Make sure you use this opportunity to showcase why you are the best in the world at what you do. This is a great occasion to persuade them that you are the most qualified to meet their needs.
