It's about taking your business to the next level. It's about managing resources, time, and money to take advantage of your strengths and your competitions' weaknesses. The goal is to bring out your best and to show customers that they would be ABSOLUTELY NUTS not to do business with you!Phil Stevenson
As a 25+-year veteran in the retail advertising industry, Phil successfully helped to build and evolved USA Drug (a regional drug chain) into a market leader. Taking existing budgets and programs, he increased reach and frequency of the USA Drug's message. The results were increased prescription counts, increased overall customer counts, and increased sales…all during a time of flat to negative same store sales as the norm in the industry.
After increasing shares to the point that Walgreens bought the chain, Phil toook his knowledge to help small shops and businesses market themselves. He planned, budgeted and produced material that branded these businesses, most minimal monetary exposure for the company. By using social media, he was able to increase exposure for these companies, helping them gain added sells.
