Over the last 30+ years I've done a lot when it
comes to advertising, marketing and publicity. From jumpstarting new
businesses to devising new ways to grow an stagnant operation. In a
nutshell...I'm great at devising ways to "sell more stuff."
It's amazing what you learn over this long of a period, and what tools you
learn how to use. But my true blessing has been an incredible imagination,
an imagination that can take what I've learned over all these years and
mold, shape, and apply it to your particular business.
Over the years people have known me in different ways.
Some known me as a "Marketing Mechanic" that gives expert
advertising and marketing "tune
ups" that result in more sales per dollar invested..
Some know me as
a "Marketing Shamus," that is great at investigating and evaluating what a company is
currently doing and finding opportunities that are being missed.
To other consultants, experts, and business advisors I've been known as a
"Marketing Guru," someone that brainstorms with them to ignite new
ideas for solutions to problems that they
are having a hard time with.
Some people know me as a business start up "Coach,"
helping to develop marketing skills and know-how and that reduces expensive lessons from common
mistakes. A confidence booster!
No matter what moniker I might be known as, the important thing is that I

given us a number of things to consider,"
"I want to thank you for excellent business advice you gave me--once again.
Others I've consulted haven't really 'gotten' what I'm trying to do. Not
only did you understand my mail order idea, you helped me see and think
through possibilities I hadn't known were there! Its gratifying to know I
have somebody with your expertise and creative imagination in my corner."
"John has been a valuable business coach for my pet-based start up. He
has helped me think through the many possibilities for store design and
build-out. He has provided expert guidance in marketing. As an aspiring
small business owner---John's suggestions and encouragement have been very
helpful. I would highly recommend John as a business start-up coach or for
helping to develop an advertising and marketing plan."

"I have known John Schulte for many years and I have had the pleasure of
working with him on various projects. He is an excellent professional. His
integrity and competence are top-notch. Everyone should consider his
organization, the National Mail Order Assn. (NMOA) to be a phenomenal
resource...especially in today's crazy economy. It is a tremendous honor for
me to call him a friend, an associate and a great entrepreneur. Join the
NMOA and find out!"

"John brought me on fresh out of
college when I was exploring the world of marketing. As his intern, he
taught me the ropes of general marketing principles and also the specifics
of internet marketing and effective writing.
The writing is what really stuck and today I am a journalist.
John is friendly, patient, direct, and knowledgeable. He's a good man to
Your Sales and Marketing Expo was, without reservation, the best expo at
which I've ever exhibited—and I exhibit at a minimum of one a month—and have
done so for 3 years.
It was very well planned, organized, and a productive networking and
prospecting event. The part I liked the best was that, although there were
four of us manning the booth, we were busy visiting with potential customers
all the time. The company management crowd you drew was magnificent. So
often at trade shows, we find that decision makers coming by our booth are
few and far between.
Please feel free to give my name and number, 1-800-992-1377, out to anyone
who wants to visit with a reference about the benefits of exhibiting as I'll
be happy to share my positive, bottom line experiences with them.
