PMA North Central Division Inc. 2008 Annual Meeting Friday, October 3, 2008 - Saturday, October 4, 2008 Riverwood Inn and Conference Center Otsego, Minnesota My friends, The economy is down in 2008. Your competitors are cutting expenses to the bone. Many won’t survive because, in a recession, a business cannot save its way to proﬁtability. 2008 is also a year to survive and thrive. Wise retailers are proactively adding new customers, promoting new product lines, increasing market share, and becoming the market leaders of 2009. We are bringing in some of the country’s most accomplished photo marketing experts to help you increase sales on a shoestring. You have my personal guarantee that you will take home practical promotional programs and techniques for increasing proﬁtability in 2008. Feel free to enjoy a relaxing time at the Riverwood Inn at a reduced price – play some golf, walk in the woods, sit along the Mississippi, photograph the wild deer, and partake of good food and fellowship. But plan to go home with a plan for increasing sales!!!!

Despite the Economy Speaker: Adrienne Zoble, Adrienne Zoble Associates Inc., Fort Collins, Colo. Are you marketing hard or marketing smart? In marketing, it’s not what you spend but how you spend it.

We will hear Gary Grinaker some practical, doable, inexpensive marketing ideas from marketing consultant and speaker, Adrienne Zoble. Learn which marketing strategies to embrace in today’s economy and which to avoid. Confirm what you’re doing well and how you can improve your marketing effectiveness, i.e., sell more in less time. It’s even possible to reduce your marketing expenses by 85 percent! This is a two-part session you won’t want to miss! Consulting and speaking to business owners and executives of growing businesses throughout the United States since 1977, Adrienne Zoble has guided companies toward marketing strategies that help them work smart, not hard.
