What is the Kokoro system?
- Lifecycle Marketing Master Plan: If you had a magic wand and could change your marketing, what area would you change first? When you look at your company, what holes are in your business and where are the best opportunties? What changes would move the needle most? (See Lifecycle Marketing Master Plan here.) We’ll work together to define the goal(s) and create a plan to make it happen. What are the first couple of projects you’d want to do? Here are some favorites: get more leads, follow up on leads and contacts you already have, use webinars to get more customers, use white papers and guides to educate your customers, prioritize which prospects to call first, and more. There are 7 marketing basics that are like magic and we’ll put them to work for you!
- Your Customer and Your Message: We’ll work with you on what to say to your prospects and customers so you can get more business. We’ll dial in messages for your perfect customer, looking at their pain points and how you solve your customers’ problems.

This is where marketing automation is leveraged for you (See an actual campaign here) and ensures that follow up is happening and money is coming in while you are sleeping or while you are on the road!

A bit about Cindy
When I was a kid, my parents both worked in TV and I loved to go on basketball and hockey remotes with my Dad. Fast forward – I ended up selling and marketing hardware and software to TV stations. At this point I’ve worked in high tech for more than 20 years.
During the time I was selling and marketing equipment to TV stations, one thing I observed was that many companies were reluctant to use technology in their marketing systems because they were afraid it would make them seem impersonal. They’d always sold a certain way and felt worried that a system would change the organic way they were doing business and figured it just wouldn’t work.
However, I noticed that the really amazing companies were using systems to augment what the sales people were doing, to create success, and to help customers. I realized that really good sales and marketing systems create repeatability and success. Plus, leads and other crucial things don’t get lost.
I’ve also observed people at small and medium-sized companies working terribly hard, regularly putting in 12+ hour days. But these great people miss out on working smarter because they are too busy to stop and make their company better. I’ve seen first hand that systems can really determine the success of a company – the difference between good and great.
