She needed graphic design and advertising, networking opportunities and public appearances, social media and e-mail marketing. Except her only marketing contract was with a PR firm for specific PR services.
Instead, the firm – Schwartz Media Strategies in Miami’s Coconut Grove – added value to the contract. It distributes e-mail blasts to 3,000 broker and tenant recipients each month. Executives there regularly seek out and schedule networking events for Blanca and her team. The firm is currently working on the client’s Web site, stationery package and logo design.

That said, given the economy, value-added services are truly of value to clients who are savvy enough to invest in marketing.”
