You’re in a quandary with your marketing choices; not sure what to do, where to go, or how to spend your marketing dollars. What’s effective, what isn’t, where am I wasting my hard-earned dollars? It’s a tough question, especially in this new age of instant information and gratification.

Instead of asking yourself these questions, why not ask an expert in marketing your business?

Robin Riddell is someone you really need to talk to. With over 30 years in the business, Robin has a vast knowledge in many phases of the art of marketing. She is the founder and principal behind Next Stage Marketing.

Robin began her media career as a buyer at an advertising agency, moved on to television advertising account executive where, not only did she sell “time” she produced and wrote the commercials as well. She even won a Silver Addy Award. Not too bad for a top-producing sales rep!

Not satisfied with being just a sales person, she moved up to management in a National Sales capacity. From there to consulting, expo and event planning and promotion, magazine production and promotion and now internet marketing.

That’s a lot of collective experience to share with her clients.

Robin is also an accomplished speaker and trainer. She is recognized twice by Toastmasters International as a Distinguished Toastmaster. You can see her speaker’s bio here. If you need a presenter or facilitator for your next professional gig, contact her to see what she is currently presenting.
