~Message from the Alchemist~

At Hamptons Creative Group, we always want to keep the conversation flowing. So we’re inviting guest bloggers to contribute to Word of Mouth once a month on topics they and we find important. As members of a global creative community, we want to connect everyone – to share ideas about branding, messages and marketing! What better way to do that than by opening our blog up to other voices and ideas?

Meet The Team

These voices and ideas will include the important members of the Hamptons Creative Group team, too. In case you haven’t visited our renovated web site yet, we’ve listed many of our collaborative community. Watch Word of Mouth for our first guest blogger post, coming soon.

~Heard Around The Cooler~

Welcome to a revamped section of the newsletter! Here, we’ll spotlight new members of Hamptons Water Cooler,the first Hamptons only online social network where businesses connect and conversation flows!

~Beach Booty: Tips from Hamptons Creative Group~

Don’t wait until you need a network to build one. Networking is not something to do only when you need a new client or customer. It’s not something you can cram, buy or borrow the night before you need it, either. Networking must be a regular part of your life and activities. Just like friendships, the most authentic and meaningful professional relationships evolve naturally over time.

Need help finding places to network? Let Hamptons Creative Group suggest ways for you to connect – in person or online – to build your network.

~Success Stories~

This month, we celebrate Linda’s success in connecting Hampton Creative Group’s clients to their audiences! As part of this success, we’re proud to be creating the Facebook fan page for Peconic Public Broadcasting. This local NPR station needed help venturing online to connect with their community of listeners and followers. Linda has known Eclectic Café radio host Bonnie Grice and station manager Wally Smith for years. This community minded group does so much for the area, and Linda has supported the station for years. She even answered phones during last summer’s pledge drive.

So when Bonnie invited Linda to talk about her new book on the show last week, Linda was delighted to invite another local author, Ren Dodson, to join her. Bonnie highlighted Linda’s book and Hamptons Creative Group’s work to spread the word about Rens’ writing, too. Making connections between our vast network of collaborative friends and community – it’s what Hamptons Creative Group is all about.

You’ll recall from our last newsletter that Hamptons Creative Group was offering Marketing Makeovers to help businesses make a splash in 2011. We started delivering those Marketing Makeovers in January to eager and excited clients looking to benefit from a customized blueprint or success.

While the Marketing Makeovers do arrive in beautiful blue binders, clients also receive a one-on-one session with Hamptons Creative Group to discuss their binder’s contents, including the calendars, research, and measurement tools. Here’s what one Marketing Makeover client had to say:

“I got a Marketing Makeover from Hamptons Creative Group and I’m thrilled to be working with them to punch up my brand. The makeover gave me concrete ideas and ways to get my name out to my ideal clients, to position myself as an expert in intellectual property, trademark and copyright law, and to enter the world of online webinars. I’m excited about the new possibilities.”
Kathryn Dalli, Attorney at Law, Partner at Twomey, Latham, Shea, Kelley, Dubin & Quartararo, LLP

What do Peconic Public Broadcasting and all of our Marketing Makeover
recipients have in common?
