  5. 5. History With Great Clients<br />
  6. 6. Proven Solutions<br />A Major Metropolitan Bank Required <br />A More Strategic Media Plan<br />Requires A Better<br />I needed to build a better mouse trap.<br />Working with a restricted budget and client requested media, I created a strategy<br />Improving the use of media allocations based on the brick & mortar <br />bank locations throughout the market. The final strategic plan <br />represented increased reach and frequency in higher performing mediums and <br />eliminated wasted resources due to duplication. <br />The end result was a more efficient reach to the targeted audience <br />within the budget parameter.<br />
  7. 7. Proven Solutions<br />A High Profile Computer Manufacturer Required <br />Better ROI On Their Print Media Allocation.<br />Required An Improved<br />I lead cross-functional collaboration with the<br />regional buying teams resulting in media cost-reductions <br />for this computer manufacturer. The team effort achieved targeted <br />cost-per-thousand (CPM) savings projections. <br />Throughout the timeframe I was working on this piece of business, <br />a savings of over 5% was attained representing about $2 million; <br />making print one of the best ROI driven media options. <br />
  8. 8. Proven Solutions<br />Leading Travel Company Required a High Profile<br />Event To Maintain Market Superiority<br />Needed To Maintain<br />Working with franchise-owners, I marshaled all aspects of a consumer travel event. With a limited budget, the event provided travel consumers the opportunity to learn about travel options, interact with travel supplier professionals, receive exclusive travel pricing and book their travel at the event if they so desired.<br />The one-day event strengthened brand equity, generated thousands of interested consumers and created over $300,000 in revenue with another <br />$100,000 the following week.<br />
  9. 9. Proven Solutions<br />A Clinical Test For A Well-Known Drug Manufacturer Required <br />Finding Specific Type 2 Diabetes Sufferers.<br />Required Specific<br />Provided with a challenging budget, a defined doctor list and the need to find specific diabetes afflictions, I set out to create a strategy that would fulfill the needs required. Using a proprietary software platform, I determine the higher propensity markets for Type 2 diabetes which helped me allocate print and broadcast spend allocations.<br />My efforts were successful by supplying a higher than anticipated ad frequency, meeting the required patient count, and staying within the tight budget.<br />
  10. 10. Proven Solutions<br />Assisting A New Online Travel Prospect On How To<br />Compete With Established Competition And Closing The Biz.<br />Required A Larger<br />Collaborating with a new online travel prospect, we discussed options to generate a larger share of voice with travel consumers. An already competitive category, this entity required strong ROI on their investment. Targeting major travel markets and working more unconventionally, testing reflected initial victories which then became more prevalent.<br />Our collaborative efforts were successful!<br />More brand equity was developed and additional frequency began. <br />Initial year sales volume was strong topping out at nearly $200,000.<br />
  11. 11. Proven Solutions<br />Developing The Right Attack Following A<br />New Merger.<br />Required Announcing<br />When a large logistics company merged with an established large retail business service, new branding efforts would be required. I provided a targeted strategy oriented around creating more brand exposure and driving increased foot traffic. With the client a bit apprehensive, I pressed for a test and they agreed. <br />The initial campaign was small (under $50,000) and showed strong impact. <br />Expanding into additional markets the entire program grew to a $5 million annual spend in subsequent years.<br />
