The Ability to Crack the Code
Diversity in Industry and Culture
On Time, Effective, on Budget
WHAT I BRING TO THE TABLE
I help clients to “crack the code” on the revenue engine driving their business by tuning up and aligning client’s customer strategy, marketing, and sales… to take ideas and work through the creative process to produce marketing materials - from ads and collateral to trade and VC road shows which inform quickly what the client has to offer whether it be a service or product.
Over 45 years of experience helping new and established businesses alike to dynamically expand their presence in the marketplace thru graphic design and online communication.
START-UP COMPANY EXPERIENCE
After working for one of the most creative agencies in Minneapolis I started my own company contracting with Twin City and Chicago based agencies to create major campaign promotions. A specialty became helping startup companies creating Venture Capital Road Shows to help them go public. Companies who made it to NASDAQ were Famous Dave’s and CIMA Labs.
Clients quickly learn we need to work together in creating "their story" to develop sales and marketing campaigns which improve revenue potential, increase selling effectiveness, and give customers a compelling reason to buy. I don't sell products, I inform people as to why they want them.
I create a simple messages which are on target by listening to the needs of the client and then passing information on to the potential customer. I do this by finding Key Words and figuring out “how influencers express to others what they think about your product.”
SEASONED MARKETING PROFICIENCY
Am an expert in working to create ... handling all the advertising, collateral, and packaging needs for some of the nation’s best known companies - Famous Dave’s BBQ original marketing and retail, ITW North America Coatings and Electronics Divisions new business development and product labeling, and Control Data Corporation new Super Mini Computer introductions. You get a seasoned veteran... I am up to speed.
VENTURE CAPITAL ROAD SHOWS
In that time frame I have worked with start-up companies such as Famous Dave's BBQ and CIMA Labs not only creating marketing materials, package design, and advertising but also created their Venture Capital Road Shows to help bring them public.
ON-LINE TRAINING PROGRAMS
Well-trained employees are the key to your small business success. Studies have shown that the most successful, productive employees are those who have received extensive training. They’re the cream of the crop, often having the strongest stake in the company’s future.
We provide a diverse business background with 30+ years executive experience developing management, human resource, and safety programs.
GRAPHIC DESIGN & PRODUCTION EXPERT
Having been brought up producing work for some of the country’s top creative, I understand how to not only build files which run thru pre-press with zero issues but am an expert in typography and the Adobe Creative Suite along with superb “keylining” skill.
Odds are you’ve seen my work. I have created, produced, and purchased multi-millions of dollars in printing from retail and display cases to product labeling and cartons. My files are correct, run smoothly, and pre-press production, as well as clients, love me for taking away their pain.
MY GOAL IN LIFE IS TO... “TAKE AWAY YOUR PAIN”
I do this by creating compelling stories through digital media - an example would be my print files which run through pre-press first time, every time. Having an intimate knowledge of pre-press my clients are assured of a quality production every time.
The reason to work with me is simple. Those in pre-production love me, creative doesn’t need to give me lessons on how to build a file, and I am a stickler for on time on budget. When you need to communicate an idea COMO-BRAM will help you find your solution.
