“Powerful women! Powerful speakers! Powerful stories!”
Pam Perry, Chief Visionary, Ministry Marketing Solutions, Inc

Ashamed No More

Every woman needs a safe place… She needs the support of sistahs who won’t cringe at the honest truth, who are willing to walk by her side, who will listen to her stories, and who will offer balm to heal her wounds.

SistahFaith …true stories of women of women who have not only survived, but who have triumphed! Stories of addiction, abortion, rape, abuse, incest, suicide, teen pregnancy-stories of hope that shine light on the path to healing.

Most women endure in silence – afraid to tell the truth, held captive by shame. But in SistahFaith, women tell the truth and show their scars…share their testimonies so that others can overcome.

Among the women who share their stories of redemption, hope, and new life are Bonnie DeBarge of the famed Motown group DeBarge, award-winning author Sharon Ewell Foster, and author Claudia Mair Burney.

Share SistahFaith: Real Stories of Pain, Truth, and Triumph (Howard Books/Simon and Schuster) with the sistahs in your life and let the healing begin!

10 Ways to Reject the Recession and Build a Thriving Business

Synergy Energy - Mag ad-half-v3-Final

In a time when the lead news stories focus on business downsizing, the rising costs of gas and groceries and general economic turmoil, it is hard to avoid feeling the “recession depression.” But as business owners we have two choices: we can let the media send us into panic mode or we can view the economic downturn as an opportunity.

This is a time in the economy when millionaires are made. While some businesses are giving up and closing their doors, their competitors are seizing opportunities. Which side would you rather be on? Now is the time for you to rise above it—to stay a step ahead of your competition and Reject the Recession!

Here are ten ways to thrive in tough times:

1. Keep the Marketing Wheels in Motion
Though your first instinct may be to cut costs, this is the worst time to cut back on marketing. Studies show that businesses that continue marketing through a slow economy are the ones that come out ahead when the economy begins to turn. Make sure you have a marketing plan and stick to it. If your current marketing efforts aren’t producing results, try new strategies. When done correctly, marketing is an expense that should pay for itself. Find the strategies that work and then keep doing them.

2. Don’t Be Afraid to Discount

The reality is that consumers are holding on tighter to their wallets. The key to unlock their dollars is in discounts. Take a cue from the big department stores—they are holding incredible sales and offering more coupons than ever. Reevaluate your pricing strategy and offer discounts off your most popular products and services. This may also be a good time to lower your prices across the board and then advertise your “New Lower Prices!” You can always raise them again later.

3. Leverage the Internet

Are you selling products and services from your website? Can you expand your sales channels by selling on eBay or another online venue? Are you reaching your customers with e-mail marketing? Is your website optimized for the search engines? It doesn’t have to cost a fortune to implement an online marketing and sales strategy. Even if you simply add gift certificate purchases to your website, you could uncover a whole new revenue stream. Seek out an online marketing expert and evaluate the opportunities.

4. Form a Mastermind Group

Get together with your staff or assemble a small group of people who understand your business and brainstorm opportunities. When several people get together with a blank slate and some good energy, magic can happen. Ask for ideas—you might be surprised by the results.

5. Tap into a New Niche
Is there a niche that you have been meaning to focus on? Can you uncover a new market that makes sense for your business? For example, a florist that specializes in weddings could pursue the corporate market, a residential real estate agent could go after the investor community or a virtual assistant could decide to specialize in serving the unique needs of financial planners. Pick a new market and then develop a plan of attack.

6. Reach Out to Your Customer Base

One of the most overlooked business opportunities comes from your existing and past clients. The fact that they have already done business with you makes it far more likely that they will do business with you in the future. Make sure you are marketing to them, reaching out and reminding them that you are there. Ask them for referrals and offer a powerful incentive such as a cash reward or gift card for referrals. Never let a referral go unnoticed!

7. Make Improvements
This is an ideal time to evaluate all of your policies and procedures. Do they make sense in this economy? Is your customer service team delivering up to your standards? Could your sales team benefit from some additional training? How can you help your company perform even better? What are steps you can take to improve customer loyalty? Look at your business through a magnifying class and seize the opportunity to improve it across the board.

8. Survey Your Customers
Much can be uncovered by reaching out to your customers and asking them for feedback. Develop a short list of questions that include ratings on your products, services and staff. Ask specific questions such as, “How can we improve your experience with us?” Tools such as http://www.SurveyMonkey.com can help you accomplish this easily. Once you receive the survey results, evaluate them and take action to make improvements. You will undoubtedly find themes in the answers such as, “It takes too long to get a call back.” Let your customers know that you heard them and share what improvements you are making as a result of their survey responses.

9. Keep an Eye on Capital
What goes down must come up and the economy will rebound, though it may be awhile. If business is slower than usual, form a plan for getting through this period. You might need to open a line of credit, visit your bank and apply for a loan, seek private funding or even bring in a partner. Running out of capital can quickly kill a business. Make sure you assess how much you may need before you need it and have a plan for forging ahead.

10. Get Help and Keep Your Eye on the Prize

Now is a great time to sharpen your own skills. Take classes, read books and network with others in your industry so you can learn from them. Get involved in your trade association and make sure you are on top of your game. Look for joint venture opportunities. Make yourself more efficient by outsourcing services that consume your valuable time. For example, if you are doing the bookkeeping for your business, hand that off to someone else so you can have more time to focus on what you do best. Also, determine your priorities. Where should you be spending your time? What can you do to make your company bigger, better and stronger? Leave the worrying to your competitors and instead seek out opportunities and stay positive. When you put the right energy and focus into your business—despite the economy—the results can extraordinary.

AACM – The African American Christian Market and Pam Perry

July 4, 2008

Ministry Marketing Solutions Predicted The Gospel Boom In The African-American Community

By Dr. Gail Hayes


Pam Perry, founder of Ministry Marketing Solutions
(pictured here with T.D. Jakes)

Detroit, MI (BlackNews.com) – Post 9/11 days and natural disasters like Hurricane Katrina have made most people in America stop and say a prayer. Books like The Prayer of Jabez, by Bruce Wilkenson, The Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren and the first-time author Joel Osteen’s Live Your Best Life have toppled the prestigious New York Times best-seller lists and have paved the way for more Christian books.  

Christian information is at its peak and there is a great revival sweeping the land. In the African American community especially, where the spiritual heritage is deeply rooted in the culture, there are more gospel artists, plays, movies, television programs, radio ministries, magazines and books than any other time in history.

The African American Christian community has produced some of the largest churches – noting that it is not church as usual – it is MEGA. National ministry leaders such as Bishop T.D. Jakes and Juanita Bynum have also become best-selling authors in the AACM (African American Christian market) opening the door for many more to come behind them.

 

Ministry Marketing Solutions, Inc. (MMS) was the vision of Pam Perry, of Detroit, because of her desire to market the message to the masses through the media. What message? “The Gospel of Jesus Christ,” says Perry. “The first two letters of the word gospel is G-O and that’s what I have been called to do. To go to the media to tell the story of Christian authors.”

Perry’s public relations and advertising career spans over two decades. The first ten years she spent working in ad agencies and secular media. The last ten she has dedicated to ministry marketing. Her first ministry job was with The Salvation Army as P.R. Director.

“Although I grew up Christian, my commitment to God really changed after I starting reading Christian books and was exposed more to Christian media. It was like an explosion in my soul and my purpose was clear,” says Perry.
