Edan Gelt Marketing Strategist, Fitness Blogger. “Miracles are just a shift in perception from fear to love.”, Marianne Williamson Five years ago, my 4-year-old daughter was diagnosed with Leukemia.

At the time, I was working full time and running a side business, while my husband and I also managed property and he worked full time. We had a lot going on and the diagnosis was like being hit by a freight train. I remember the fear in the hospital as we sat up all night, discussing what the long-term prognosis could be and what our lives as a family would look like. I had all these balls in the air and for the first time, I was okay if all my projects crashed around me; everyone would understand – my baby had cancer.

Day two, or maybe it was day three of our hospital stay; my husband and I sat whispering over our daughter. Behance. Edan Gelt Tips for Securing Sponsorships. How to Secure Sponsorship?

North Shore Dads develop Trainerly Offering Last Minute Online Fitness Deal without Membership.

North Shore Dads develop Trainerly Offering Last Minute Online Fitness Deal without Membership

Users of Trainerly can log on the night before or on their way home from work to find an available class deal near them without committing to a membership at a studio or gym. Unlike popular fitness site ClassPass, no membership is required for Trainerly, classes are available based on need, location, and budget. Trainerly founders Berkun and Akselrud decided to launch the platform after finding it frustrating to make scheduled class times.

Whether they were stuck in traffic, in between meetings, racing home after work or driving kids around town, the partners said they often missed scheduled class times at their local studios and wished there was an app that would offer a fitness class near where they were at.

Community Relations is the driving soul of an organization – it is not an afterthought or reactive endeavor but a strategic undertaking for all companies, big or small.

The Importance of Community Relations for Business

When a business commits to community relations as part of its core business strategy, it helps attract and retain top employees, positions itself positively among customers and improves market and brand position. Positive, proactive connections to the community can translate into a boost to the bottom line. Here are 10 steps to Community Relations best practices: 1) Create a written vision statement, which acknowledges the importance of community issues, and the direct relationship they have on your company’s future success. 2) Mainstream this vision statement as foundation throughout the organization. 3) The business leader, boss or CEO must continually communicate and act on the company’s commitment through emails, presentations, websites and collateral to employees and also take a personal leadership role in the community.

Marketing as a Game of Chess – Edan Gelt – Marketing Strategist, Fitness Blogger. What is marketing strategy and what do strategists do?

Marketing as a Game of Chess – Edan Gelt – Marketing Strategist, Fitness Blogger

I feel like I’ve answered this question so many ways but defining it through the game of Chess is my ultimate favorite. Marketing is the act of taking a look at your business from a 500-foot level. In comparison to Chess, the board is your marketplace (or your business) depending on how you want to play, and the goal is to either capture your clients or maybe it’s to remove your competitors (depending on your 500-ft view). So how is Chess like Marketing Strategy? Goal: Checkmate an opponent’s king Strategy: I’ll open with “X strategy of opening moves” and attempt to control the middle of the board.

Edan Gelt - Marketing Strategy Creation. “What is your Role?”: Marketing Directors/Strategists by Edan Gelt.

I remember the first time I told a friend I was going to school to become a “marketer” (over 20 years ago). I was asked if I was going to “hand out flyers”. Yep, that’s me; I’m the flyer distributor. I went off to get my BS in marketing and economics and later my MBA. Even as I progressed throughout my career, people were confused about what I actually did.

I’ve often been on the other side of the table as a client being handed hefty reports filled with stats and concepts that just don’t make sense.

Marketing Psychology: Maintaining Toy Demand Post Holiday Season – Edan Gelt – Marketing Strategist, Fitness Blogger. If you’re a parent, have you ever wondered why you find yourself in a line, expensive toy in hand, after the holiday season? I have. Whether you are loaded with gift cards or cash-in-hand from family and friends, there is always that one big spend after the holidays.

This is not an accident. Toy manufacturers have our number! Toy manufacturers are faced with the dilemma of keeping demand post-holiday. How it Works: Your kids are dialed into toy advertising pre-holiday, whether on an iPad, the Cartoon Network or the flashy toy catalogs that come in the mail. This toy is the primo gift and your child cannot wait to get it.

You go holiday shopping and to your amazement, the toy is out of stock. You look on eBay, Amazon, Craigslist and the toy is 10 times the retail asking price. In hopes of the toy actually being stocked, you wait. A few days before Christmas, you give in and buy something else. In hopes your child will be happy with the substitute gift, you move one.

At the start of my experiment, my goal was to understand the impact of social media and obviously reap the benefits from the exercise but what I also gained was a lesson in the marketing and psychology of fitness.
