Winning With One

2009-11-19 All day

How one-person companies can out-think their competition.

Large multinational companies and one-person shops have one thing in common: They both need a strong brand identity. Corporations recognize the importance of a brand that can help them differentiate their product or service, and they spend millions to accomplish it. But most one-person enterprises, lacking the resources, don’t even try.

But they should. Winning With One, a new approach developed by Christine Howey, focuses on the specific marketing communication needs of one-person companies. By applying proven marketing techniques and positioning strategies, Ms. Howey works with one-person companies to help them develop a unique stance within their marketplace, at a small fraction of what it would normally cost.

Then, she shows proprietors how to communicate their new brand identity without having to invest in traditional and costly media. The goal is to help one-person companies secure new work by getting on the “short list” of vendors being considered by prospective clients, and to reinforce the wise decision made by existing clients.

Ms. Howey is a marketing communications consultant and has been the creative director of four advertising agencies. She has developed brand messaging for companies and organizations such as McDonald’s, The Cleveland Foundation, MetroHealth, AT&T, The Plain Dealer, Honeywell, and many more. She specializes in developing strategic marketing communications plans that help a company speak differently and arrestingly about itself and its capabilities.

Ms. Howey also has an extensive background in theater, having been an actor and director, and is currently an award-winning theater critic for Scene Magazine and her blog, Rave and Pan (raveandpan.blogspot.com). She uses her theater knowledge to help company representatives present their brand, in person, in effective and memorable ways.

You will leave this meeting with a clear and understandable map for making the brand identity journey, so that your one-person company can become a distinct and identifiable entity in your particular field.

    Do you wonder why your photos don’t look like what you expected? It’s such a beautiful world. Why are photos that come out of our cameras so flat and unemotional? It’s because our eyes can see more light than a camera can capture. The solution to capturing the beauty of a shot is HDR.

    HDR is an abbreviation for high dynamic range. HDR photography allows you to create stunning and mind-blowing photos that include incredible lighting, color, and detail you couldn’t otherwise achieve by taking a single photo. An HDR photo displays maximum details for recreating all the beauty you perceived at the moment you took the shot.

    When it comes to editing and creating your HDR photos, Aurora HDR is the world’s most powerful HDR software made exclusively for the Mac (coming soon for PC). Aurora HDR is a joint project developed by Macphun, an award-winning software company, and Trey Ratcliff, the world’s most renowned HDR photographer. Aurora HDR is fast, easy to use, and allows you to create stunning HDR photos in minutes.
