is your to-do list overwhelming you?
Is your personal workload holding back your entire company? Two days in a row I had the same conversation with two different clients. They weren’t completing simple tasks related to key marketing projects, and as a result, were holding up the entire workflow on the projects. All they needed to do was invest a half hour of work, but in the past three weeks or three months they hadn’t gotten to it.
Take a look at this list. All of the following concepts share a common characteristic. Can you identify it?

GPS gave out - car is on the rocks
This summer my family and I packed our car, fueled up, and left Pennsylvania for a vacation in which we traversed several states. Each day we made plans to arrive at our destination at a specific time. We used a GPS to plan our daily excursions and stay on schedule. One feature of a GPS is calculating an estimated arrival time. But somehow, our actual arrival times were rarely what the GPS initially told us! In fact, we often arrived much later. Has this ever happened to you?

Imagine that your product was so unique and popular that it practically marketed itself, many people were excited about its features and performance, and orders were pouring in. Such is the case for Tesla, an electric vehicle manufacturer. But now imagine that you can’t manufacture your product quickly enough to meet demand—not even quickly enough to meet your promises to...
His tone was desperate: “How can we increase sales? We’re losing money and are almost out of cash. If something doesn’t change, we’ll be forced to close.” How would you respond? I could offer heartfelt sympathy, but what good was that? The owners seemed to expect me to hand them a miraculous formula to bail them out of their dilemma. Their business did not reach this low point...

Baystate Outdoor Personia Pool House
In 2017, Baystate Outdoor Personia shifted their brand positioning from selling prefab sheds to custom-designed sheds and outdoor solutions. After coming to Rosewood Marketing to do a rebrand, Baystate hired Rosewood to build the new website and manage all aspects of their online marketing, including their pay-per-click (PPC) campaign.
Diving in the Action
“The podium leaned at 27 degrees.” That’s the first sentence to a story. Well, really it’s the middle of a story. Let’s start at the beginning. A few years ago my coworker, Matt, and I participated in a story writing class at the Writers & Artists’ Conference at Christian Light in Harrisonburg, Virginia. Samuel Coons helped us hone the skill of crafting captivating opening storylines.
Buying habits are changing
Our tagline at Rosewood Marketing is “Are You Growing?” Every day, we work to help our clients grow. But growth means change, and change can be difficult. Sometimes change pushes us out of our comfort zone, and into new frontiers. We encounter change everywhere—at home, at work, at church. Maybe you have wished things would stop changing. Or maybe you have wished something would change and it didn’t!
How to Align Your Marketing and Sales for Better Results
Jim, an experienced retail furniture salesman, just walked in the door at his new job, a brand-new furniture store. Unfortunately, the store owner failed to do any marketing before opening day to bring people in. Not even a sign above the door! At least the store is located in the town square, which could prove to be a good marketing move. But to draw customers into the new store will take work...
Prices subject to change according to customer's attitude
This sign hangs in the office of a local tire shop: “Prices subject to change according to customer’s attitude.” Anyone in sales or customer service can understand the frustration that inspired the statement! Sometimes we feel like charging certain customers extra because they are so difficult to serve.
