What does it say about me that I went into Fresh Market naked yesterday, and today I hunted my garage for a tyvek suit to go into Walmart? 🤣

#covid19 #iveaproblemwithyoupeople
I read an article this morning that repeated, "73% of CEOs think marketers lack credibility." I have to ask, why? Credibility, as in trust? If you have a chief on your executive team that you do not trust, what does that say about you as a CEO?

Trust is important to us (marketers). That our customers trust the content of our ads is a must. Consumer trust is the fundamental criteria that determines our success. Maybe you, the CEO, are the problem and do not understand your customer.

Knowing our customers is a top priority for me to do my job properly. I study them from afar. I study them in-person. I study their habits and activity trends through data.

Armed with this information, I discuss with our owners who have been in the restaurant business for years. I discuss with our GMs who work with our customers 24/7.

I can then formulate the right marketing strategy and plan of attack for success, knowing that anything short of success is a failure on my part.

With the growing popularity of satellite radio, we could get reasonable media rates for local radio advertising before the COVID-19 epidemic.

Now with 90% less people in their cars during drive time, local radio media buys are much more affordable.

But our new variable is a smaller audience. 🤔

Marketing is just as much psychology as creativity.

How well I know my customer directly affects my strategy, my planning, my execution, and the results of my work.

Mo Rocca just told me where the phrase 'blowing smoke up my a$$' came from. Seems that in some dark age, tobacco smoke was blown 'up there' to revive drowning victims. Hmmm. Oh, I think not!
Good ideas are not good ideas just because I think so. Validation comes from our customers.

A/B test. Trial and error. Focus group. Whatever the budget can afford, do it.

"Where do you find the time?" I hear that all the time from small businesses looking to market for themselves.

It's 2nd nature to me -- I like to talk. And I write to document my thoughts.

I love my business. It's 1st nature for me to "talk" about what I do every day. It's really, simple and easy.

I'm putting together a list of companies that could really use some marketing and advertising help, especially now in the middle of the COVID-19 quarantine. I'd like to help our community where I can.

Small and mid size companies are ideal, up to 500 employees, including our local small businesses.

Leave me a note below with their contact info (and the owners if you're comfortable doing so) so we can connect. Thanks!

Update on our restaurant industry in the U.S.*:
- 4 of 10 restaurants have closed
- 8M employees have been laid off or furloughed (2/3rds of restaurant jobs)
- $30B in sales lost in March
- projected to lose $50b in April

*according to the National Restaurant Association
The first thing to wrap your head around when it comes to #restaurantmarketing is that it's not always about the food.

Yes, your food must taste delicious.
Yes, your menu should make your customers' mouths water.

But service, customer experience, and culture are number one (two and three). Right, @Tom?
People need to know you're alive. People need to know what services you're offering right now. And you need to get in front of them properly and strategically, not in that shotgun way you're doing it now. It's not working.

Do you understand people and their likes? Do you understand your community and its patterns? Do you understand consumers, how they determine shopping habits, and why they shop where? These are all questions that good marketing teams study, research, experiment with the results, and study more.

Notice I didn't mention 'guess' in there anywhere. Nor did I mention 'what the boss likes' in the list. Consumer patterns can be gleaned from the right studies with the right questions of the right people, our customers and lost customers.

I've worked for free-thinking visionary bosses, and I know I have these tendencies. One of the management styles I possess for sure is the concept of an open environment welcoming ideas and free discussion.

I mean, why would you not open the floor to the dynamic team that you've assembled around you? Why stifle their great ideas?

Mindmapping ideas as a team is a sure way to flesh out those that should make the cut and head for further planning or R&D.

"All press is good press." Not sure who originally coined that phrase, but they obviously were not a brand manager tasked with managing self-induced bad press.

Don't leave your marketing and/or PR team out of your internal conversations. Take 10 seconds and invite them to your department planning sessions.

#brandmanagement #branding #PR #badpress
What's your goal and how are you tackling it? Maybe more important, does the brand you're creating now for this month's initiatives have staying power?

Think long term achievement, with short term milestones. Thinking big picture will allow you to incrementally celebrate successes along the calendar.

How often do you study results? Shotgun advertising is tough to swallow when it's your money to track.

Is a "bible-based" church the right way to describe the multitude of Jesus followers, no matter the religion/denomination label?

Early side note: this is not a religious conversation!

In today's age of trying to be politically correct, is "bible-based" offensive to you or descriptively specific and okay with you?

Does "bible-based" include all Catholics, Baptists, Presbyterians, Methodists, Jews, etc.? What other groups does "bible-based" include? What groups does it not include?

This COVID-19 quarantine sucks, really sucks! Yesterday Nicole and I set out on a venture. We decided to visit our semi-local immediate family in Norfolk, Hampton, West Point, and Newport News while still keeping our social distance.

The 9-hour trip was long, but well worth it to see our family. Even though we couldn’t hug our babies, the satisfaction of seeing them in-person will help get us through another few weeks of this misery.

Stay safe friends. And do call if you need anything.
This is an ugly time right now for local restaurants and essential businesses. It's no one's fault; it is what it is. But what it is not, is time to stop marketing and advertising.

Yes, income has dropped. Yes, some glaring expenses remain. But now more than ever, your brand needs to stand out among the noise.

People need to know you're alive. People need to know what services you're offering right now. And you need to get in front of them properly and strategically, not in that shotgun way you're doing it now. It's not working.

Let's make that happen for your restaurant. Give me a quick shout.
This is our new reality during the COVID-19 quarantine — a face mask. I've never owned a face mask. I don't think I've ever worn a face mask in public. Times have changed. How will we look back at this era? Has this changed us forever?
According to Spectator Index, "[a] man in Florida buys a bottle of bourbon for $40,000, which is double its original price, to help keep a restaurant in business."

I'm guessing this guy will be drinking free at that restaurant for a long while. But the hidden message is, that bottle of bourbon cost $20,000?

It's five o'clock somewhere, right? I had an extra tablet laying around the home office, so I reformatted it and set it up for success. Now I know what time it is all around the world. Just ask me. I know. I'm such a tech dork!
Certainly our lives have changed during this COVID-19 quarantine. We both work from home now. We both eat every meal at home now. We both spend our leisure time at home now.

So when we get the opportunity to enjoy today's world, I can't think of a better place for lunch than on our 72° front porch in the springtime.

Enjoy the little things. They are fewer and farther between now.

Please excuse my rant for the week. It's my website and I can say what I want.

The worst thing you can do is give advice to someone else on how to live day-to-day through this horrible COVID-19 quarantine-induced economic recession.

Everyone does not live in the same shoes you live in (millionaires on TV). 75% of our country lives week-to-week on their paychecks.

Everyone can’t 'not go to the grocery stores'. The right answer is to require the grocery stores to sanitize more efficiently and enforce the 6′ social distancing, among other things.

And everyone can’t 'buy enough necessaries for the whole month'. That’s naive advice for 75% of our country. It’s just not financially possible.

Stop scaring the crap out of people. Stop scaring the crap out of my 80 year old Mom. Tell the news. Give us the facts. We don’t want your high-and-mighty opinion on how we should deal with this terrible situation, <#insertnotsonicewordforyouhere>.

For years now we have been led to believe that Netflix, Amazon Prime Movies, Disney+, etc. are slowly driving the movie theaters out of business. Horse-puckey!

The President of the National Association of Theatre Owners just mentioned on CNBC that movie theaters across the U.S. hit an all-time high of $15b in revenues in 2019 — $11b from ticket sales, $4b from food sales. Hmph.

Propaganda sucks.
Working at home within the constraints of community quarantine is challenging. Leading a team while indulging in social distancing is daunting.

Deadlines loom. Project requirements grow. Customer expectations remain constant. And the management style that excelled last month is no longer effective, or relevant.
Weren't we recently having the conversation that http://amazon.com was putting these retailers out of business? Seems Walmart and Target have had something to say about that.
