As most of you already know the month of February is National Heart Month. I’m almost certain that Valentine’s Day also had something to do with the selection of February. It was probably a very smart person in marketing who coupled the two together, thereby increasing awareness of how to have a happy and healthy heart.
Recently, I started to update the copy and photos on my Home page at Marketing Communications Group. One offering in particular is our analysis and assessment of a company’s present marketing health. The assessment also includes recommendations such as branding, of being known as a solution provider, employee involvement and interaction, goal setting, and teaching the value of the type of customer service your customers prefer, just naming a few.
Our goal is always to help a company do a better job in their marketing. This analysis and assessment is a critical measure a business should take rather than jumping on the marketing bandwagon with the very latest killer program. It’s costly and rarely works.
This program is a Smart Start for Smart Business. The phrase smart start led me to a lot more servings on the web about our all-important heart. Here are a couple of portions to get you thinking:
Get a smart start for your heart: EAT A HEALTHY BREAKFAST every day. Bananas, strawberries, yogurt and nuts are good for your heart.
Make a fist with one hand and fold your other hand over it. This is the size of your heart. Squeeze your hands together about 70 times in one minute. That’s what your heart does every minute of the day. Your heart beats over 100,000 times a day.
One of my favorite cereals is from Kellogg, appropriately called Smart Start. According to Kellogg their cereal has a lot of anti-oxidants, helps control cholesterol, and a good choice to eat smart.
