Reload: Create A New Product

Create A New Product!

Reload #2 from Marketing Mercenary

Are you stuck in a rut? Producing but not creating? Selling but not solving?

In this edition of Reload, I’ll share something that gave me a spark a while back, and is generating new business for me now: creating new products.

A while back, the gentleman that was my business coach challenged each person in his group to create a new product in two weeks. He also thought that, since I deal mainly in electronic media services, I should easily be able to create a range of new offerings: low-cost, mid-range, and premium.

I did it, and I sold one of the mid-range products for about $400 a short time later. It was my biggest single sale up to that time! Was it expensive to launch this new product line?

Gallery – Tipton County IN Fireworks

Clear skies and little wind made for a great fireworks display at the Tipton County Fairgrounds in Tipton, Indiana last night (7-3-2011). I hope you enjoy this gallery of photos I shot last night!

[ My blog has been getting hundreds of hits for the schedule for area fireworks displays for the Indiana towns of Tipton, Greentown, Walton, Peru, Burlington and Kokomo. This tells me that the Internet marketing for the official sources of this information could use improvement. If your business or organization is in need of traditional or internet marketing assistance, please contact me: Marketing Mercenary (the About JR page of this blog), or via Best Property Marketing. ]

2011 Fireworks Displays for the Kokomo Area – UPDATED

Tipton Indiana Fireworks

Tipton Indiana Fireworks

Our local paper, the Kokomo Tribune, posted the following times for area fireworks displays yet to happen for the 2011 Independence Day holiday. They are accurate in that I could not find any up-to-date sources that contradicted them, except for the Kokomo Tribune itself. I was able to confirm most of these dates via other sources. UPDATE: Kokomo fireworks were postponed due to weather. Please see red text below.

  • Peru – At dusk Sunday at the town park

  • Burlington – At dusk Sunday at Burlington Park

  • Greentown – At dusk Monday at the Howard County fairgrounds.

  • Tipton – 10:10 p.m. Sunday at Tipton County Fairgrounds.

  • Walton – Monday at dusk, Walton town park.

  • Kokomo – Friday, July 8, 10 PM at Foster Park

It’s our family tradition to enjoy the Tipton County fireworks. The Tipton display will reportedly add a substantial 35% more fireworks to their 20-minute “sky concert” display. Music is provided on the FM country station, WWKI.

Enjoy yourself, and BE SAFE! –JR
