Tech Valley Guide

Randall Hogue Sr.

Autonomy, Mastery and Purpose

The New Business Model


TechValleyGuide.com was developed in answer to our customer base having the urgent need to generate new business and focus on target markets for immediate results. With traditional advertising representing only a 1 to 5% response and customers resistance to being SOLD we developed a much needed and more effective approach.

TechValleyGuide.com
arrived on two separate and related tracks first to create a low cost high tech vehicle for the delivery of the most complete transfer of information from clients to their prospects. Second to formulate the best possible first impression through imagination, video and content to the customer for your products and services.

 

We connect your website, social marketing, offline and online networking and traditional marketing together.


Like most Small Businesses and those looking to grow new markets they did all the traditional things as directed. They developed the product or service and sought out competent advice like SBA,SBDC. and other business courses. They then developed a business plan and this included a marketing plan as well.

After the extensive research advice and expense the entrepreneurs embarked on testing the waters by joining the local business groups like the Chambers, BNI and other networking type groups. Most or all of them realized the need and built a website. This did not however produce the response needed toward increased sales.

This is usually when they come to us looking for a way out of the dilemma . These people are the true entrepreneurs, hero's who have invested their lifeblood as well as time, energy, money, and sacrifice into the American Dream.

The current economy reflects that more than 50 percent of the jobs created and half of the new wealth today are from the small businesses with 20 or fewer employees. The market has changed and people do not want to be "Sold"…

Our plan is to give immediate assistance to small businesses and entrepreneurs looking to cross the chasm while developing a strategic alliance network offering tools and encouragement .

Through our work designing client presentations we have produced several winning and simple strategies for success through targeting, lead Generation and message definition co-ordinates your Network and Web based Marketing.

Our Success has produced outstanding results as the most complete and cost effective way of connecting client to prospect with high tech features now available …You only have one chance to make a first impression.

We have seen many Entrepreneurs experience a renaissance of hope, determination and success as a result of our assistance and this more than anything else is our reason for being.

 

Tech Valley Guide fills the need for small business of all kinds to compete on a level playing field with larger and foreign companies for sales online and off. While these local entrepreneurs benefit from the national and global level of technology, exposure, training and resources, the regional economy inherently does too.

 

By asking, “What if we offer a rewarding Independent Business Opportunity with a product that can change lives, supports the local business economy and creates unlimited and increasing business connections for clients. By applying this business knowledge, technical skills and economic philosophy to a plan of action, the Tech Valley Guide was born.

SuccessCARD specialized in Macromedia Flash-based business-to-business video presentations for distribution to potential customers but also made available streaming online.

 

After years of operating SuccessCARD and a noticeable change in the role of businesses on the internet, it became clear there was a need in the Capital Region for professional and reliable website development.
