What is the benefit of hiring Malachi Marketing?

Written by Sarah J. Grezlik

Many companies today are trying to find ways to trim that fat off their budgets and yet keep their advertising at a progressive pace. That can be very difficult if you are contemplating hiring a full-time employee to handle only the advertising and Social Media aspect of your business. Malachi Marketing LLC offers a solution that many smaller companies have come to embrace.

The typical advertising agency can be out of reach for many small businesses to implore for help with their advertising, and based on the income and the size of the company it may not be feasible. Large scale advertising agencies can offer big companies great exposure on a larger scale nationally and produce top of the line campaigns that a smaller company could never afford. So how does the smaller company keep up and grow when the budget keeps them from progressing to that level?

That is where a business like Malachi Marketing LLC can offer the solution that you are looking for. Because we are independent you are not burdened with normal employee issues that a full-time or even a part-time employee would require the company to take care of.

Now you can hire a company part-time based on the actual work that is handled for a fraction of what it would cost the company to hire a full-time or even a part-time employee. You have the same control over what is happening with your advertising budget as if you were running it in-house without the stress of worrying about another person on the payroll.

With Malachi Marketing LLC you only pay for the work we actually handle. In the long run this saves you money. Money that can be put towards increasing your advertising budget and promoting the company that you love so much.

It is very time-consuming to gather all of the information from each of the proposed publications and various medias that you may be interested in advertising with. We already have established relationships with the majority of the local medias. You then have to figure out which ones are going to hit your target audience and bring you ROI. Because we are already actively using many of these media options we already have a good sense of their demographics and their reach.

There are small things to ask for, that on your own you may forget because you have other priorities that need to be addressed with the everyday operations of your business. Those questions can be delegated to us to find the answers.

When possible we look for ways to help you capitalize on co-op dollars that may be available to your company.  You may have never taken the time to capitalize on this because it can be mind-boggling to say the least. For businesses that have co-op available and are not using it … that is where we can help the most.

Here is a great example where hiring us could have helped you gain and save money at the same time:

Let’s say that last year you carried a brand that offered you $10,000 in co-op funds but at the end of the year when you look back you never filed for a single penny of it.

You may have spent a grand total of $20,000 in advertising last year out of your own pocket and totally let $10,000 slip right through your hands.

That is where we can come in and help you use that money towards your advertising at a fraction of what it would cost you to hire a full-time employee to make sure those funds are used.

At $10,000 in refundable co-op it would not be wise to hire someone full or even part-time to handle it for your company. But there is an alternative. Hire us at a percentage of the over all advertising that we handle for your company, and you will be way ahead of the game at the end of the year.

The services that we offer replace the need to hire an in-house advertising / marketing person but still keep you up-to-date with a regular advertising campaign.

You maintain complete control in-house of all of your advertising invoices and contracts while we take care of helping you fulfill those contracts and file for your co-op reimbursements.

We take the time to meet with you regularly to make sure that we are staying on track with your advertising campaigns and then we take care of designing and getting prior co-op approvals on the ads that are scheduled for publication or broadcast.

The next time you sit down and look over your budget and you are trying to figure out a way to stay on top of your advertising without hiring an employee … give us a call, we will set up a time to sit down to discuss how we can be of service and what we offer in return for our services. The initial consultation is free, so what do you have to lose for asking?

Dennison/Uhrichsville: A History In Pictures

Written by Sarah J. Grezlik

The birth of “Dennison/Uhrichsville: A History In Pictures” took place in 2012 after I met with Joan Haas Devore. I had seen her huge collection of historical photos and old postcards on Facebook and I contacted her about buying a book if she ever published one.

At first I was interested in buying a book if she ever published one. After talking with her I realized that she actually needed someone just like myself that had the knowledge on how to organize getting the book to press and so I offered Malachi Marketing‘s services to help her get this valuable collection preserved for future generations.

Malachi Marketing LLC was still fairly new and I was not sure that I wanted to take on a project of this magnitude, but at the same time I really wanted to be a part of something that had this much historical significance. Plus, I also realized that since I myself was a huge history buff that I would take a more personal interest in the project being done well.

Being a history buff, what I saw was a history that was irreplaceable, and of huge importance to future generations that wish to research their family tree. Many of her photo’s showcase the local businesses and events that took place in the late 1800’s to the early 1900’s.

Joan started collecting Dennison and Uhrichsville memorabilia many years ago and has amassed a huge collection of not just postcards and photo’s but also High School programs, city directories, bricks and clay products from the huge brick industry that was a major part of what built these two towns. Her knowledge of the two towns would make her an invaluable speaker at any local function that would like to know more about Dennison and Uhrichsvillle.

We started out by having a staff meeting and working on the idea of selling advertising to help sponsor the publication of the book since finance’s was one of the main reasons that publishing the book was not feasible. Sevilla Pankuch went to work right away on talking with area businesses about sponsoring advertising in the book. The response was very positive and the feedback once the book was published was wonderful. Many businesses that did not get to participate in the advertising called and asked about being contacted if we ever publish another one in the future.

After coming up with a plan and a few ideas we went to work on the sale of the advertising while our graphic artist, Cheri Hutson went to work with Joan on gathering the photo’s, postcards and historical information to go with each picture that was to be used in the publication of the book.

As a group we decided to name the book Dennison/Uhrichsville: A History In Pictures. We wanted the name of the book to reflect the two towns as well as let the public know that it was a pictorial view of the two cities.

We started focusing on the book in January of 2012 and by the end of May 2012 we were at the press with our first run of 300 books. By the end of July we went back to press and published another 50 copies.

Currently we are taking orders for the next run and when we hit a total of 25 orders we will go back to press again.

For more information on how to order your copy please call either myself, Sarah J. Grezlik at 749-269-2705 or Joan Haas Devore at 740-922-2843.

Welcome to the Malachi Marketing LLC Website!

By Sarah J. Tatman Grezlik

In 2010 I had a goal, to have a website for my new company Malachi Marketing LLC. After much anticipation and thoughts about how to go about setting up a site the day finally came when I made the purchase of a domain name.

The domain name www.malachimarketingllc.com was purchased more than a year ago, but for some reason I never found the time to dig into setting up the site to go along with it. Then in September of 2012 I met a wonderful young man named Joe Leavers at the Tuscarawas County Fair. Joe has taught me a lot about websites since that time frame.

Joe and his wife Kori have a site www.ZijaExtreme.com where they tell the story about Kori’s near death experience and how a special nutritional supplement saved her life. You can read all about her life changing experience at ZijaExtreme.com.

I sat down again with Joe this evening and we went over a few essential changes to the site for Amish Shop Online and then before we parted ways he helped me set up the new website for Malachi Marketing LLC. I left our little meeting at the coffee shop so excited to get home and get started on the design of the new site!

After getting home I found myself digging through and trying to activate the new WordPress site and chatting online with my host to find out what I was doing wrong. Well my whole problem boiled down to the fact that I needed to register a new account. I’ll bet my friendly little chat guy … Scott L., must have thought he was on chat with a crazy woman. But he was very patient and helpful and in the end, like I said … my whole problem boiled down to merely registering a new account and abracadabra … the magic genie jumped out of the WordPress site and whipped me up a great looking site.

I had no idea how easy this whole process has been made. It’s absolutely smooth. They have the links set up already and all you have to do is select the ones you want and drop them in the box and the whole world of Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Google +, Printer buttons, and even email buttons just magically appear. Best of all when I set up a new post it will automatically post to all of the sites that I have selected for instant notification that I have a new post.

So now I’m all excited about the new site and learning how to make this site exciting and user friendly. Keep your eyes on us over here at Malachi Marketing LLC … we are growing with leaps and bounds!
