Imagine receiving 90% more leads from your website! That’s what Miller’s Mini Barns reported this spring. And what do you think caused this jump in leads? It happened after Rosewood Marketing rebuilt their website.

Of course, your results may not be identical. You may already have a website that performs well as a lead-...

Marketing Channel

Jim groaned. Turning in his chair to face his accounting manager, he said, “I just heard another dog food producer is starting up over in Ohio. With our sales being flat for the last two years, I’m afraid they are really going to hurt us. I wish we could find more dogs who like our product. That would help us out a lot.”

As you can guess, for Jim to overcome this new challenge, he doesn...

Residents of a gated community in Glen Carbon, Illinois, had a problem—their backyards lacked sheds. They were in a deadlock with community management over getting a shed brand approved for the community. Even after multiple attempts by residents, no approval was forthcoming.

Let’s leave the gated community for a bit, and jump to...

Sand Siding Bridge in Swatara State Park, PA

After nearly crashing the quadcopter at the Acrigg's waterfall, we tried again here at this new bridge on Sand Siding Trail in Swatara State Park.

There may be several reasons business owners would want a quick and easy answer to this question. They may simply want a shortcut to success. They may assume a...

Dream Buildings logo

Dream Buildings contacted Rosewood last year, looking for a solution to their advertising woes. Aaron, the owner, and Martha, the secretary, had determined that managing their advertising was more than they could handle. When publishers called, sometimes they couldn’t remember if they were even advertising in that particular publication. Their ads were not consistent in appearance or content....

The Conestoga River at Kurtz Road, Ephrata PA

This river-side farm scene, the May picture in Rosewood's 2016 calendar, was shot with our DJI Phantom 3 drone.

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.

While this sign is obviously a joke, consider this underlying truth: a customer’s...

Sequel to “Garden Bed Photography in December”

In October 2015, Matt and Roy met with an energized Sam from YardCraft to discuss YardCraft’s plans to sell raised-garden beds in Costco stores. Could Rosewood help design a box meeting Costco’s specific and detailed requirements?

To get an initial feel for what those requirements might be, Matt and Roy went to browse the aisles of...
