One way to plant the seeds of success is to find high-profile events like the NCAA FOOTBALL National Championship Game and running advertisements that are synergistic with your company and the game. For example you can run a contest where customers choose their team and if the their team wins they get a discount on their next purchase. Leading up to the game you can do special promotions that relate to the game to create interest in your products or services. I am using the game as a fundraiser for The American Cancer Society as I have developed POINTS FOR THE CURE, where people choose their team and at the end of the game they visit http://main.acsevents.org/goto/jdogg1 and donate $.25 per point their team scores. This concept was also featured in The Sun-Sentinel.
The Super Bowl is being played on 2/2/2014 you can plan special promotions that relate to the game and include these promotions in all your marketing plans. For example you are a life coach and you advertise a session based on the total points scored in the game and advertise that for the week following The Super Bowl your 30 minute session will be the total number of points scored by both teams in the Super Bowl. So if 49 points are scored you charge $49 for the 1/2 hour session. If you advertise and promote this properly you will have a high retention rate as well as an increase in new clients. There are many ways to capitalize on The Super Bowl. Every type of business can come up with an idea that ties into the hype surrounded by The Super Bowl. The key is to be proactive and creative.

Each time I see this sign I think why did their seeds not grow? Many times it is because they came from a position of lack and made excuses not to advertise. In some cases it was the fact that they did not support charitable causes and word got out that they were takers and people didn’t want to do business with them. In some cases it was that they had a reputation for bad customer service.
