Promotions, marketing, and sales have different, yet interconnected goals. Yet many lump them into a single category. All three are necessary to generate sales that make a company profitable. Promotions identifies the need or creates the desire . Marketing shows why this particular product solves the problem or satisfies the want. Sales closes the deal by asking for the purchase and giving the details of how to buy the product or service.

Please share to help your friends find the answer to the promotional challenges.

Combining two concepts, Never Can sayGood-bye creates an innovative spin on the ghostly genre. With a tagline, “When love is forever, death is only the beginning,” it is comparable to Ghost and The Others.

Imprisoned in her family’s home, the spirit of a murdered child waits for her parents to free her. But they have moved on to new lives as has her killer. Randi must bring them back together, so that they can forgive themselves and make amends. If she succeeds, they will all heal and she will be freed to also reincarnate. If she fails, their need for revenge will damn them all.

#EyeSpecs- Post #1

Are you an author, writer, blogger, book promoter, book marketer, book coach, or publisher? Drop in weekly on the Motown Writers Network site where Eyeology INC will post snippets, tips, and Q/A’s to bring value to whatever it is that you do.

Today’s Q/A

facebook_1473607551451

A.)  First things first, we want to commend you on all of your efforts! It’s not as easy to create brand recognition as you’re probably making it look but you’re doing a great job! Being human, many of us want a return on our investment immediately but it doesn’t work that way. Sometimes it takes quite some time to build brand awareness. The keys however, are consistency and patience. While you’re working those keys here are a few things for you to think about while building your social media presence. Create a story for your brand. Your brand’s story gets potential clients and customers involved and invested in your company because they know “the history” and “the why” your brand exists. Also, be sure to send clear and concise messages about your brand; as it takes time to build your brand’s credibility. Your mission is to be sure that every aspect of your brand coincides. The goal is to build a relationship of trust between you and your potential clients/customers. Hope this helps!
