— Joseph Heckel

CALGARY, ALBERTA, CANADA, November 25, 2019 / — Marketing for local small business is all about finding customers in your local region that are looking for a business just like yours. You do this by using both offline and online lead generation strategies. These strategies include activities like marketing campaigns, branding, web, social media, and advertising. Marketing for your local small business is basically all about building a strong presence for growing your business.

Step number one for building a strong presence is to focus on a specific geographic region. When this is done well it brings customers in the door. Step number two is clearly showing these customers why they should choose you. When you understand your target market and exactly how you can help them you will have customers that stick around and purchase your products and services.

Below are some tips for marketing your local small business and building a strong presence:

– Tell your story and be authentic while doing so
– Connect with other local small businesses – especially those located near your business
– Sponsor and/or participate in local community events
– Partner with local influencers and media personalities
– Use local directories
– Make sure you have an up to date Google My Business Listing with reviews
– When it comes to social media focus your efforts on only 2-3 platforms, don't try to be everywhere as this will dilute your efforts and use video
– Good old snail mail – Try a targeted mail-out with something unique. Create a letter with something lumpy – a tea bag or Hershey Kisses!

One of the biggest hurdles when it comes to marketing for local small businesses is staying consistent and tracking all of your efforts. Most small business owners have no problem trying out a few marketing strategies but testing and measuring the results to ensure they receive a good return on investment tends to be put on the back burner.


“Wendy, I wanted to reach out to you to give you some feedback with regards to our coaching relationship since 2009. You have been a huge instrument for me and my business growing to where we are today (2019). Your assistance was extremely valuable. You made me aware of multiply tools that I could implement and helped my team see things from the client's point of view. You are a great business consultant and I highly recommend Entrepreneur By Design for anyone that owns a business.

Joseph Heckel, Phoenix, Arizona Broker/Owner of Property Management Real Estate Service

Summary: So if you don’t have a strong plan for marketing your local small business, get to it … it will help you grow. If you are not growing …you are moving backward because no one stands still.

Ecuadorian Tourism Minister Rosi Prado met with investors in the US to seek the development of the tourism sector

"The message we seek to carry out is the government, and the private sector is united," the Minister said to EFE.”

— Tourism Minister Rosi Prado De Holguín

NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, November 22, 2019 / — Torino Capital hosted Ecuador at the Crossroads on November 14, where it took place a conversation with the key actors from the public and private sector defining Ecuador's economic future and investment opportunities. Among the guests were the key Ecuadorian businessmen and Ecuadorian Cabinet Minister Rosi Prado de Holguín.

This event was one of some initiatives from the Ecuadorian Government to strengthen the commercial relationship between Ecuador and the USA. The United States is Ecuador's leading trading partner, representing the destination of 31% of exports in 2018.

Such a meeting put together significant US funds investors and some of the wealthiest families in Ecuador, lawyers, and cabinet members of the Ecuadorian Government to discuss some strategic points regarding Ecuador's economic future. On the one hand, the Ecuadorian entourage showed their perspective, agreements, and goals to make the country succeed, on the other hand, the investors had a unique opportunity to present their concerns, suggestions, and thoughts regarding their vision in Ecuador's market position. "The message we seek to carry out is the government and the private sector are united," the Minister said to Efe.

Torino Capital is genuinely interested in Ecuador’s economic scenario due to new investment opportunities which never happened before in the Andean country. Torino has carefully watched the Ecuadorian government's efforts to bring new investors to the country and improve its economy.

Ecuador’s economy faces a set of challenges that test the capacity of public policymakers to make it possible for the South American country to find alternative sources of income from those of the oil activity. With a level of gross debt as a percentage of GDP that has increased since 2010, the resources allocated to investment in productive and social infrastructure are increasingly scarce.

During the Administration of Rafael Correa (2007-2017), Ecuador's external debt went from 27.2% to 44.6% as a percentage of GDP. Although this debt does not reach 50%, there was an increase in the financing needs of the Ecuadorian economy that, as estimated in the 2019-2022 Four-Year Budget Programming of the Ministry of Economic and Finance of Ecuador, reach an amount of USD 25,070 m.

This situation has led Ecuador, in March 2019, to ask for financial assistance from the International Monetary Fund (IMF), in search of the necessary financing to solve the shortage of dollars in its economy and undertake a state modernization program. Under the IMF financing program, the Lenin Moreno government has implemented a fiscal consolidation strategy, which until now has not found approval by parliament, after two opportunities. Although the IMF has expressed its support for Ecuador, as well as its willingness to make its conditions more flexible in order to guarantee its political viability, the complex political and social environment, as well as the lack of will from the parliament to approve the required structural reforms, have been a significant obstacle for the Moreno Administration.

In December, an IMF Executive Board meeting will take place, in which the issue of Ecuador could be addressed. However, if the parliament rejects the tax reform again or its approval presents a delay, the next disbursement, planned at USD 500 mn, could be committed. It is important to note that the first policies implemented in the framework of the IMF financing program, such as the removal of gasoline subsidies, found a social rejection that put political governance at stake in Ecuador. This situation led President Moreno to abandon this measure, on October 13, 2019, initiating a dialogue process with the social sectors that raised their voice of protest.

The facts described leads to the need to explore alternative sources of income, which allow increasing the room for maneuver of the Ecuador government to effectively meet the enormous social demands of its population.

As an alternative source of fiscal income, the tourism sector in Ecuador has made significant progress in recent years as a result of the implementation of a set of public policies that have contributed to generate the appropriate incentives to achieve its sustained growth. Today, tourism activity in Ecuador represents one of the largest sources of non-oil income, after shrimp and bananas. According to data provided by the Ministry of Tourism of Ecuador, 2 out of every 100 dollars produced in this country. Although it still does not represent a significant contribution, it is essential to note its sustained increase in its participation in total productive activity in recent years.

Likewise, it is appropriate to point out the increase in non-resident tourism consumption, which began to be higher than the tourism consumption of Ecuadorians abroad, since 2012.

Tourism in Ecuador has registered an important advance as an alternative source of income for the public finances of that country. While its current contribution to GDP is around 2%, it has shown significant potential as an alternative source of non-oil revenues for Ecuador.

It is crucial to give continuity to the set of public policies that have taken place from the tax area, as well as to promote the country's brand strategy. Also, within the receptive tourism strategy, it is important for the authorities to stimulate the reception of new airlines, for the increase of Ecuador's connectivity with the rest of the world.

Costa Rica: a role model for Ecuador?

The successful Costa Rican model is based on the harmonious integration between the ecosystem and the hotel infrastructure. Likewise, the development of the sector is supported by an innovative Certification System, which guarantees the standardization of the quality of the tourist service throughout the country. Its innovation characterizes this System, both of the processes and the products offered, taking into account a constant interaction with the client through evaluation instruments.

Tourism, as an economic activity, contributes 6.3% of Costa Rica's GDP, representing the highest level of income within the services sector. Meanwhile, Ecuador records a contribution to GDP close to 2%.

Ecuador has a vibrant natural ecosystem, which includes destinations as exotic as the Galapagos Islands, or of remarkable historical and cultural importance, such as Quito. Innovation emerges as a factor of high relevance to improve tourism processes and products that Ecuador could offer to the world.

Ministra de Turismo de Ecuador se reunió con inversionistas en Estados Unidos

"El mensaje que buscamos trasmitir es que el gobierno y el sector privado están unidos", dijo la ministra a Efe”

— Ministra de Turismo Rosi Prado De Holguín

NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, November 22, 2019 / — Torino Capital recibió a Ecuador en Crossroads el 14 de noviembre, donde tuvo lugar una reunión con los actores clave del sector público y privado que influyen de manera determinante en el futuro económico de la nación suramericana y sus oportunidades de inversión. Entre los invitados se encontraban importantes empresarios ecuatorianos y la ministra del gabinete ecuatoriano, Rosi Prado de Holguín.

Este evento fue una de las diversas iniciativas del gobierno ecuatoriano para fortalecer la relación comercial entre Ecuador y los Estados Unidos. Estados Unidos es el principal socio comercial de Ecuador, representando el 31% de las exportaciones en 2018.

Dicha reunión convocó a importantes inversionistas de fondos estadounidenses y algunas de las familias más ricas de Ecuador, abogados y miembros del gabinete de ese país, para discutir algunos puntos estratégicos con respecto a su futuro económico. De igual forma, la comitiva ecuatoriana mostró sus perspectivas, acuerdos y objetivos para que el país tenga éxito. Asimismo, los inversionistas tuvieron la oportunidad de presentar sus preocupaciones, sugerencias y puntos de vista con respecto al posicionamiento del mercado ecuatoriano. "El mensaje que buscamos trasmitir es que el gobierno y el sector privado están unidos", dijo la ministra a Efe.

Torino Capital está realmente interesado en Ecuador, debido a las nuevas oportunidades de inversión sin precedente que están ocurrido en el país andino. Torino ha observado cuidadosamente los esfuerzos del gobierno ecuatoriano para atraer nuevos inversores al país y mejorar su economía.

La economía ecuatoriana enfrenta una serie de desafíos que ponen a prueba la capacidad de los hacedores de políticas públicas para hacer posible que el país sudamericano encuentre fuentes alternativas de ingresos a la actividad petrolera. Con un nivel de deuda bruta como porcentaje del PIB, que ha aumentado desde 2010, los recursos asignados a la inversión en infraestructura productiva y social son cada vez más escasos.

Durante la administración de Rafael Correa (2007-2017), la deuda externa de Ecuador pasó del 27,2% al 44,6% como porcentaje del PIB. Aunque esta deuda no alcanza el 50%, tuvo lugar un aumento en las necesidades de financiamiento de la economía ecuatoriana que, según lo estimado en el Programa de del Presupuesto cuatrienal de 2019-2022 del Ministerio de Economía y Finanzas de Ecuador, alcanzó un monto de USD 25.070 millones.

Esta situación llevó a Ecuador, en marzo de 2019, a solicitar asistencia financiera del Fondo Monetario Internacional (FMI), en busca del financiamiento necesario para resolver la escasez de dólares en su economía y emprender un programa de modernización del Estado. Bajo el programa de financiamiento del FMI, el gobierno de Lenin Moreno ha implementado una estrategia de consolidación fiscal, que hasta ahora no ha obtenido la aprobación del parlamento, después de dos oportunidades. Aunque el FMI ha expresado su apoyo a Ecuador, así como su disposición a flexibilizar sus condiciones para garantizar su viabilidad política, el complejo entorno político y social, así como la falta de voluntad del parlamento para aprobar las reformas estructurales requeridas, ha habido significativos desafios a la administración de Moreno.

En diciembre, la Junta Ejecutiva del Fondo Monetario Internacional llevará a cabo una reunión, en la que se podría abordar el tema del Ecuador. Sin embargo, si el parlamento rechaza nuevamente la reforma tributaria o su aprobación presenta un retraso, el próximo desembolso, planeado en USD 500 millones, podría comprometerse. Es importante señalar que las primeras políticas implementadas en el marco del programa de financiamiento del FMI, como la eliminación de los subsidios a la gasolina, encontraron un rechazo social que puso en juego la gobernanza política en Ecuador. Esta situación llevó al presidente Moreno a abandonar esta medida, el 13 de octubre de 2019, iniciando un proceso de diálogo con diversos sectores sociales que hasta ahora ha contribuido a estabilizar la situación política y social ecuatoriana.

Los hechos descritos conducen a la necesidad de explorar fuentes alternativas de ingresos, lo cual permitiría aumentar el margen de maniobra del gobierno ecuatoriano para satisfacer efectivamente las enormes demandas sociales de su población.

Como fuente alternativa de ingresos fiscales, el sector turístico en Ecuador ha logrado un progreso significativo en los últimos años como resultado de la implementación de un conjunto de políticas públicas que han contribuido a generar los incentivos apropiados para lograr su crecimiento sostenido. Actualmente, la actividad turística en Ecuador representa una de las mayores fuentes de ingresos no petroleros, después de los camarones y las bananas. Según los datos proporcionados por el Ministerio de Turismo de Ecuador, 2 de cada 100 dólares producidos en este país provienen del turismo. Aunque todavía no representa una contribución significativa, es esencial notar su aumento sostenido en su participación en la actividad productiva total en los últimos años.

Asimismo, conviene señalar el aumento del consumo turístico no residente, que comenzó a ser mayor que el consumo turístico de los ecuatorianos en el exterior, desde 2012.

El turismo en Ecuador ha registrado un avance importante como fuente alternativa de ingresos para las finanzas públicas de ese país. Si bien su contribución actual al PIB es de alrededor del 2%, ha mostrado un potencial significativo como fuente alternativa de ingresos no petroleros para Ecuador.

Es crucial dar continuidad al conjunto de políticas públicas que han tenido lugar desde el área fiscal, así como promover la estrategia de marca del país. Además, dentro de la estrategia del turismo receptivo, es importante que las autoridades estimulen la recepción de nuevas aerolíneas para el aumento de la conectividad de Ecuador con el resto del mundo.

Costa Rica: ¿un modelo a seguir para Ecuador?

El exitoso modelo costarricense se basa en la integración armoniosa entre el ecosistema y la infraestructura hotelera. Asimismo, el desarrollo del sector está respaldado por un innovador Sistema de Certificación, que garantiza la estandarización de la calidad del servicio turístico en todo el país. Su innovación caracteriza este sistema, tanto de los procesos como de los productos ofrecidos, teniendo en cuenta una interacción constante con el cliente a través de instrumentos de evaluación.

El turismo, como actividad económica, aporta el 6,3% del PIB de Costa Rica, lo que representa el nivel más alto de ingresos dentro del sector servicios. Mientras tanto, Ecuador registra una contribución al PIB cercana al 2%.

Ecuador tiene un ecosistema natural vibrante, que incluye destinos tan exóticos como las Islas Galápagos, o de notable importancia histórica y cultural, como Quito. La innovación surge como un factor de gran relevancia para mejorar los procesos y productos turísticos que Ecuador podría ofrecer al mundo
