FREE QUIZ: DO YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO BE AN ENTREPRENEUR?
FREE QUIZ: WHO ARE YOU… REALLY?
When it comes to establishing your personal brand and determining who you really are, it all boils down to: Why should I work with you, do you understand my needs, and can you help me? So why is your personal brand so important vs. just your company’s brand? Because when you are an entrepreneur – you and your business are the same. Do you really know who you are and what your personal brand says about you?
FREE QUIZ: WHAT SHOULD YOUR BRAND COLOR BE?
How consumers feel about a brand has more pull than what they think about a brand. We know certain colors evoke certain emotions and voila: your brand colors have the ability to impact your sales or performance even more than the products you offer. Your brand colors should also represent you as well and how you want your customers to feel. Take this quick quiz to find out what color best represents your brand!
FREE QUIZ: DO YOU REALLY KNOW YOUR IDEAL CLIENT?
One of the most important elements of a marketing strategy is the development of an ideal target customer profile. Knowing your ideal customer allows you to build your entire business, message, product, services, sales and support around attracting and serving this narrowly defined customer group. Even if you are just launching, having a defined ideal client from the very beginning will save months of trying to be all things to all people.
I recently had the pleasure of attending one of Cindy Donaldson’s LinkedIn training for human resource managers. I found Cindy’s presentation informative and full of valuable content that will be useful for me in my business. She clearly is very knowledgeable and is a real master of her trade, Also, I was extremely impressed with her availability after the training in answering everyone’s questions. I found her to be very personable and engaging in my conversation with her. If you are looking for a social media consultant, I highly recommend that you hire Cindy.
Cindy – it was great to meet you at the Connecticut Bankers Association – Women in Banking event and glad I had the privilege to be with you briefly in the breakout session! Your presentation was amazing!!
Your presentation at the Connecticut Bankers Association – Women in Banking event was the BEST part of today’s conference!! SO REAL!!!!!
I enjoyed attending the Connecticut Bankers Association – Women in Banking event today and listening to you. Fantastic!!
Our company was in need of marketing support from product launches to setting yearly initiatives. We came upon Red Barn and thought they looked like a perfect partner. Cindy and Jenn connected with everyone on our team to understand how we got to where we are and what we want to project into the future. Working with Red Barn was a great experience from the start.
They work to complement what our current marketing team can provide and helped us connect with new areas of the market. Red Barn has enabled us to branch out or our comfort zone, pushed us to challenge timelines, and helped us accomplish more than we could have imagined. Cindy and Jenn are great at what they do, extremely responsive, and have delivered items on time every time. We have seen an increased email click-through rate and overall more email engagement as well as more traffic on our social media.
Our experience thus far has been great and we look forward to seeing what else we can accomplish this year with their help!
I currently manage operations for two Executives over 6 companies. So, let’s just say I value my relationships and building my network. I recently had the opportunity to work with Jenn at Red Barn Consulting. I had 3 projects to oversee – Team Zak, Metro Property Management & Danny’s Dump Runs. All my needs were met promptly, with individual care and well, the detail/outcome you can just see for yourself on any of the three websites. I would highly recommend working with this company for all brand marketing projects.
I have worked with Red Barn Consulting for almost 2 years now. During this time we have done some major website changes. Not only was everyone we dealt with at Red Barn a pleasure, but also knowledgeable and timely. Jenn stayed on top of everything and kept us in the loop during this important project. Cindy’s big picture attitude and vision was just what we needed. All of us at DiMatteo Insurance loved working with their team during this process.
On another note, Cindy’s unfiltered wisdom with her Monday and Thursday morning briefs keep us all engaged and force us to think out of the box and take action. Her ability to get folks motivated and feel the success is second to none. I have also had the pleasure to work with Cindy in a very relaxed coaching environment and she truly makes you think and see the light. We are more than blessed to have found Red Barn Consulting as a working partner.
Cindy is a Force! A force of creativity, curiosity, commitment, insight, energy and practical, expertise. And she’ll be the force behind you, beside you and ahead of you – every step of the way.I wish I’d known about Cindy from the start of my business! Her marketing expertise has taken my social media presence – and me – to an entirely new, authentic and relatable level. And that’s the thing. When you work with Cindy, your marketing presence will grow, but so will you. And that where Cindy really distinguishes herself from the competition.I contracted with Cindy to revamp my website. She presented me with what she calls a 3-month marketing “sprint” to accomplish these goals. Here’s what I didn’t know that came with the package: Cindy as my marketing coach.Cindy listened for the authentic me – and then formed it into words. Then she pulled, persuaded and cajoled me into new places so that clients would see me – know me – choose me – if we were the right fit together.I took some work. I chickened out numerous times – so much change….But Cindy’s positive energy is positively contagious. It’s impossible to get stuck in the weeks with her because she’s fun – and very funny, making everything lighter and easier. Laughter is part of Cindy’s secret sauce.She’s also fantastic writer and OMG the beauty she creates on a website. She took the muddle of ideas in my mind and made them concrete and assessable.Like any good coach, no question, no concern, is too big or too small for Cindy. She’s genuinely interested, commitment and devoted to your success – to my success.I have a quote in my bathroom: Leap and the Net will appear. We entrepreneurs understand this well! Cindy will guide you through the leap to a new you with your social media presence, and she’ll also be the net to catch your every detail and every need.I recommend Cindy to absolutely every committed entrepreneur ready to take the next steps.
“Cindy and her team are amazing!” Even when you think you have a good marketing program, they may make suggestions that are outside of your comfort zone, however, if you trust them, the recommendation are always “spot on”!
“Cindy is a marketing and insurance expert.” The Horton Group began working with Cindy at Red Barn Consulting a little over a year ago on digital strategy, content planning and development. She has an impressive level of knowledge about effective strategies to build and promote your brand across multiple channels.
“Red Barn has taken our sales process to the next level. Their creative marketing ideas helps differentiate us from our competition.”
“Cindy Donaldson of Red Barn Consulting acted as the marketing arm of our insurance agency for several years.”
We are not large enough to warrant a fulltime marketing person and Cindy has filled that role nicely. She keeps us apprised of the latest marketing techniques and constantly is making suggestions to improve our sales efforts. Particularly adept at social media advertising, her firm has managed to keep our name out in front of potential customers for minimal cost. Some of her duties and accomplishments include direct mail target marketing to affluent prospects, design and updating our web site, regular newsletters to our clients, organizing client/prospect seminars as well as planning and running social events for clients and prospects. She is always willing and very responsive to jump in and help us with any project. She has been invaluable to our firm.
“The team at Red Barn was tenacious about deadlines, deliverables and assigning responsibility…” The Bank’s legacy Website was obsolete and the technology was limiting the economic value to the Bank for addressing the needs of our customers and prospects. Red Barn Consulting was engaged to develop a new website; including the right integrated digital strategies to deliver our marketing messages, products and banking functions. Red Barn Consulting has the subject matter experts to understand the banking industry, technology platforms that best fit our needs and the creative staff that delivered function as well as great aesthetics. In the end, the new Website was delivered on time, on budget and all of our expectations were met
“Cindy Donaldson and the Red Barn team are an indispensable resource to Aartrijk. A true trusted partner.” We have enjoyed working with Cindy for years. She always does the right thing by the customer. Super positive attitude. Fun to be around. And really savvy about what must happen in marketing and communications to reach today’s insurance consumer.
February, 2018 I started working with Red Barn Consulting to start my marketing business. In April, 2018 I left my 9-5 job to pursue my business.I’m not sure where the end of 2018 will take me, but I’m so looking forward to seeing so many more positive changes…
RBC gets people talking about you and your business…they create a buzz which gets the phone ringing!
I could not have done it by myself. I am extremely grateful for Red Barn Consulting, who has helped me along this journey.
I have been thoroughly impressed with their responsiveness, marketing expertise and enthusiasm…
