Orlando, Fla. – January 22, 2009 – JW Dicks, Esq., America’s Foremost Expert on Personal Branding for Business Development, continues to write a series of popular branding and marketing blogs at his website http://www.JWDicksBlog.com. The blogs are timely and efficient tips for entrepreneurs and business owners interested in growing their business or professional practice.
JW Dicks is one of America’s leading experts on using personal branding to build an individual or expert’s media credentials and then growing a business around the personal brand. JW emphasizes branding, and the importance of online marketing and social media to his readers and gives them strategies to expand their business in the current economy.
Starting in December 2009, JW began a blog series based on a recent DMNews article discussing marketing strategies that have been the most effective over the last 30 years, and continue to be. Some of the topics that JW will cover over the next several weeks will include (in no particular order) customer endorsements , continuity programs, loyalty programs, sweepstakes, rebates , coupons, in-billing advertisements , business reply cards, and location-based targeting, among others.
The first blog included JW’s thoughts on loyalty programs. He discusses how loyalty programs are well known, adaptable and clearly successful. JW uses examples such as Best Western®, Delta, Kennedy’s All-American Barber Club® and American Express® to illustrate the different varieties and effective uses of loyalty programs. Along with these examples, JW Dicks asks his readers, “How can you use a loyalty program in your business? What steps need to take place to implement one quickly?”
Over the next several weeks, JW will give his take on some of these marketing strategies with an emphasis on personal branding, branding companies, business strategies and business development.
