The Networking Goddess

Helping businesses, nonprofits and professionals achieve outstanding results through networking and marketing.

For more than 20 years, Julie Yusim has been helping small business owners to develop effective marketing strategies and differentiate themselves from their competitors. Julie has found that the most successful marketing campaigns include a dynamic networking component. Julie’s unique coaching techniques provide her clients with the skills to combine marketing and networking to reach more customers, increase sales and form strategic partnerships.


Networking Strategy

Is your networking more like “notworking®?” IdeaMax will identify where your networking efforts have derailed and get you back on track with best practices. We will identify the best networking venues to reach your target audience, strategic partners and referrals. We will provide coaching to you and your team, equipping you with a dynamic “elevator pitch” and strategies for meeting people, following up and building trust.

Marketing Strategy

Has your marketing stopped sparkling? Have customers and prospects stopped responding to your marketing? Let IdeaMax inject a boost of creativity and clarity into your branding and messaging. We will also help you build a marketing strategy for a new audience, product or service.

Presentations & Group Workshops

Does your team lack experience in networking? Bring IdeaMax in to conduct a 90-minute networking workshop for your employees. This training is ideal for those who are new to business development or professionals not used to having client contact – i.e. accountants, attorneys, IT service providers and the like.

Are you looking for a unique and effective gift for your clients? Consider giving them an IdeaMax Power Hour® creative session or workshop!

Networking for Job Seekers: In today’s fierce job market, it is more important than ever for candidates to incorporate networking into their job search strategies. Effective networking enables job seekers to connect with professional contacts and mentors on a more personal level that often leads to interview opportunities. Julie leads a 90-minute workshop that will teach your talent pool how to weave networking into their employment searches to increase success.

Nonprofit Advisor/Interim Executive

Are you the executive director or on the board of a small nonprofit or association? Have you found that enthusiasm, support and donations for the organization have begun to wane? Let the IdeaMax team put its 20+ years of nonprofit experience to work for your nonprofit or association. We’ll advise on strategy, branding, messaging, event planning, and increasing awareness, as well as coaching your leadership team.

Additionally, in the event that your organization is temporarily without a leader, IdeaMax can fill the void by serving as your interim executive. Our team is familiar with almost every aspect involved in day-to-day operations of small nonprofits so we are able to step in and “keep the door open” while you conduct your talent search. We are also able to help screen candidates to facilitate your search.
