What makes an organization select and retain an agency to assist with its marketing strategies and tactics? For agency management and new business development teams, that is the million-dollar question (and often even more). A report released this week by the Agency Management Institute gives a glimpse into just that.

Agencies that are trying to develop new business and retain clients they have, have to be able to address the real needs of their prospects and clients, says Drew McLellan, head of AMI and an agency owner himself. This report is a look under the hood of what truly motivates marketing agency partnership decisions and their longevity. Its not reading minds but its definitely a first-ever quantitative look at what they are thinking.

Often, agencies look at marketing decision-makers and their organizations from a demographic perspective, says Susan Baier, whose company Audience Audit conducted the segmentation research. But we found that their attitudes are much more relevant than their demographics when it comes to the roles they want their agencies to play, how they find and choose the agencies they work with, and the aspects of agencies they find most valuable (and most frustrating).

The research, engaging 271 decision-makers in organizations with marketing budgets of $ 1 million or less, resulted in three segments:

New Book Explores How to Improve Weight Loss Results Which Are Complicated By Physical, Mental Issues

Rock Hill, South Caroilina (PRWEB) September 30, 2014

Treatments for both physical and mental disabilities can sometimes counteract weight loss efforts, according to Dr. Nwe, an obesity medicine specialist and co-founder of the Ace Medical Weight Loss Center in Rock Hill, South Carolina. Her new book, Fat Me Not, is available in coming holidays.

Dr. Nwe has treated thousand of clients with obesity and obesity-related conditions, and personally counsels a growing number through her efforts at the Ace Center.

She reminds readers in her book that many common medications used to treat mental illness like depression and anxiety can directly effect a patients body weight.

Many times when a patient isnt in a balanced frame of mind, Dr. Nwe writes, they simply arent able to take care of themselves in a way that can truly help them lose weight.

Dr. Nwe covers several ways those with physical and mental disabilities can continue to slim down while maintaining their treatment, all with clear instructions on balancing the concerns of each condition.

Fat Me Not also looks at specific treatments, including patients who are treated with steroids, often used as muscle pain reliever with weight gain as a common side effect. Food allergies, sleep disorders and thyroid issues are also covered in her book.

As doctors we have to remember to treat the patient as a whole, Dr. Nwe explains, to always look at the big picture. Even great doctors can sometimes only see what falls into their narrow speciality. Its just human nature.

People trying to lose weight need a plan that factors in everything, she adds.

Nwes book hopes to reconcile that frequent disconnect, examining weight loss across a broad range of complicating lifestyle issues. Living with stress or even nursing a newborn, she says, are elements that may require appropriate adjustments to a patients weight loss strategy.

Dr. Nwe is a board-certified obesity medicine specialist who has appeared in several TV and radio segments promoting healthier lifestyles and more educated decision-making in terms of diet and lifestyle.

Evanston, IL (PRWEB) October 03, 2014

Caring Transitions of Chicago and North Suburbs owner Erin Marcus was just recognized by The North Shore-Barrington Association of REALTORS as the organizations Affiliate Member of the Year.

Marcus joined the association two years ago when she launched her local Caring Transitions franchise. Marcus business specializes in managing senior moves, downsizing, and estate liquidation. Full service projects include everything from helping to choose what is going to the new home, to liquidating items no longer desired and getting a house ready for market and for closing.

I was completely surprised by the award. I sponsored the luncheon and was running around beforehand trying to get organized and talking to people and I wasnt really even thinking about the actual awards. Being recognized hadnt even crossed my mind. It was a nice surprise, Marcus said.

Being part of the organization isnt just about building my business its about being part of a community. Ive become very active in the group since I joined two years ago. Im on the board of the Women Council of Realtors in charge of membership and I head up the NSBAR workshop revitalizing the affiliate program. I also met my two primary go-to vendors through the group, she said.

Marlene Rubenstein, Chair of NSBARs Awards & Recognition Committee, said she & others work with Marcus, recommend Marcus to their own real estate clients, especially if they are working with elderly clients or families that need an estate sale.

I think Erin is absolutely terrific personally as well as professionally. She genuinely loves what she does and it shows. As a service provider she does an outstanding job. She always goes over and above the call of duty If the client has special needs or is particularly fuzzy, she is resourceful and creative and will offer an online sale as an alternative. She simplifies the process and makes it seamless from start to finish, Rubenstein said. Not only does she always get the most value for furniture, furnishings and personal possessions, she gets them picked up, delivered and cleans up when the sale is completed. My clients love her and she develops a beautiful relationship. As a professional, it is a pleasure to recommend Erin from introduction to exit she makes the caring transition with love, passion, commitment, ease, respect and success.

In addition to the work Marcus does with the association and with her own business, Marcus also works with new Caring Transitions franchise owners, she has opened her business as a training center and shes built a network of franchise owners who work together on projects throughout the year.
