Vocal Marketing Group

All campaigns were promotional, guerrilla marketing campaigns, with specified event locations and responsibilities.

They varied in length from 4 months to 1 day, and included incentivized commission opportunities, which were always met or exceeded as a team.

As project manager I was the communication triangulation point between my "marketing street team" and VMG campaign managers in California.

As team leader, I selected and managed a 5 person street team, and was accountable to provide them with hours, schedules, and pay; as well as coordinate event specifics and attend all campaign events.  On completion, I was expected to return all promotional props and residual product to VMG via mail, or was further instructed to donate them to a local cause.

  • Distributed 3 tons of Caesar's Product and promotional fliers at local dog park venues
  • Utilized Facebook marketing tactics to increase event turnout and hype
  • Targeted the "dog owner market" using knowledge of Dallas and various other personal Dallas networks (ex.

Fear is Real-Television Promotion

  • Coordinated events, team schedules, and determined event venues.
  • Data collected at promotional events allowed for VMG to quantify a 6% increase at Fear is Real-TV première ratings.  VMG credited this to successful guerilla marketing and VMG team promotion.
  • Team members were awarded iPod Shuffles for far surpassing dates and goals necessary for incentives.
