Ways to Enjoy the Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya With White House Marketing

The team at White House Marketing has worked extremely hard this year, and our organization has enjoyed great success as a result. To reward the effort that has gone into our accomplishments, we are excited to send a select group of people to the Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya for the all-inclusive Rest and Relaxation Retreat in 2015.

Built on the pristine Punta Venado Beach, this expansive resort takes extravagance and pampering to rock-star levels. Along with the exotic location, here are a few other things to enjoy while we’re there.

  • Sensational Feasting: There is a different culinary theme at each of the 12 different restaurants, and six different lounges to relax in before or afterward (or both).
  • Outstanding Indulgence: Enjoy golf courses, shopping, and a fitness center, then a massage when you’re done. There are 75 different spa treatment rooms, including hydrotherapy and steam therapy.
  • See Breathtaking Sights: The area in which we’re staying is rich in history, with the ancient city of Chichen Itza and the Pyramid of the Sun both within an easy drive.
  • A Little Slice of Heaven: For adults only, Heaven is an exclusive section of the resort that takes relaxation and luxury to a higher level.

Recognition, team building, and travel opportunities are important parts of our culture at White House Marketing. Our team is world-class, and we look forward to sending our leaders to the Rest and Relaxation Retreat in 2015. Everyone is working hard for the chance to spend a weekend at the Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya.

White House Marketing is Inspired by Warren Buffett

The team at White House Marketing sets a high standard for themselves. It is our ambition to provide the best, most effective experiential advertising campaigns to be found anywhere in Arizona and beyond. This is a lofty goal, and sometimes we look to the accomplishments of great people for some inspiration. One of the people we look to for encouragement is Warren Buffett.

Nicknamed the Oracle of Omaha for his seemingly magical ability to predict market trends, Mr Buffett has a net worth of over $60 billion. He is still the active leader of Berkshire Hathaway, the investment company he started almost 40 years ago, and when he finally retires his responsibilities will have to be split between two people. Yet, despite all his amazing wealth and success, Mr. Buffett still lives in the same house he bought back in the ‘50s for a little over $30,000.

Despite his wealth, Mr. Buffett is famous for openly admitting how tax laws unfairly favour the rich. He has often been in the news for his candid admissions on how little he pays in taxes (proportionally) compared to far less wealthy people than himself. President Obama is working toward the passage of the Buffet Rule, which would lay a minimum 30% income tax on anyone earning over $1 million a year. Mr. Buffett is also an incredibly generous philanthropist, recently pledging to donate the bulk of his wealth to charity after his death.

Warren Buffett is a billionaire with heart, and a worthy source of inspiration for White House Marketing.

How Travel Opportunities Benefit White House Marketing

We appreciate the power of a fresh perspective at White House Marketing. Our organization embodies a fresh standpoint on how to market, after all. So when we have the power to freshen our point of view, we take it. Two of the most valuable ways we have of changing the way we look at the world are conferences and retreats.

There are a number of benefits to be had from journeying to these weekend getaways. One of the first, and most powerful, for us is the revitalizing effect to be enjoyed from a weekend getaway. Time spent relaxing, networking with industry leaders, and strengthening relationships within our own team helps us feel refreshed and energized. Retreats and conferences also allow us to slow down and reflect on our accomplishments thus far, make new goals, and learn what has and has not worked for other high achievers.

This is why we value the opportunity to attend the Rest and Relaxation Retreat every year to honor our top performers. This retreat is designed specifically to rebuild our depleted stores of motivation. The beautiful scenery, pampering at the health spa, and extravagant awards ceremony are all designed not just to reward, but to rejuvenate.

These benefits are also why we send our executives to our quarterly leadership conferences in Texas.  The team building, education, and networking opportunities help us to absorb information and cultivate relationships that keep us sharp and inspired.

Travel opportunities are an investment, but one that provides a high return for the team at White House Marketing.

White House Marketing on Leadership Through Listening








At White House Marketing, we often talk about inspirational leaders. It is fun to discuss the kinds of people who can use their voices to move mountains. However, oftentimes being a good leader is less about speaking and more about listening. Great managers know that their team is the greatest asset. So it only makes sense to listen and use that talented team to its full potential.

Listening as a leader offers a lot of benefits. Taking the time to hear what your team has to say can help you to foresee possible issues. This can be hugely advantageous because you have the chance to address them before they come up. For example, you may learn about a difficulty your customers are having that you can address before they become upset by it.

If you listen to your team’s thoughts and ideas, you can create a culture of openness. Perhaps one of your team members has a new idea for a feature. Or perhaps one of them has an idea to streamline your operations. Even if it never results in game changing ideas, listening to you team lets them know that you value their opinions.

There are a few simple ways to let your team know that you are ready to listen. One of the best things to do is to ask them for constructive criticism. Regularly offering them a chance to let you know how you can be a better boss. Another important step is to openly ask for thoughts when a problem arises. Many times it will come down to you to make a final decision; but asking your team for their input will signal to them that their thoughts matter.

The White House Marketing team is all about listening. Whether we are communicating with our team, our clients, or their customers, we always try to listen more than we speak. This has led to fantastic results; we recommend you try it too.

White House Marketing is Happy, Here Are Five Ways You Can be Too








We all have a different set of goals in life. Some people seek money, some seek fame, some seek power, and some seek something completely different. However, there is one thing that everyone wants out of life: happiness. Unfortunately being happy doesn’t always just happen. The White House Marketing team has compiled the following list of secrets to happiness that we use ourselves, every day.

Seek New Experiences: It is hard to feel happy when you feel stuck. Routine and monotony lead to boredom. If you are always searching for new and exciting experiences, you will be more likely to find things that make you happy.

Force Yourself to be Positive: You probably don’t realize how much control you have over your own feelings. By simply reminding yourself to think positively, you will soon find each day seeming a little brighter.

Nurture Your Relationships: Humans are a naturally social species. We enjoy, and in many ways need, regular interaction with others. Although you shouldn’t maintain detrimental relationships, you should make sure to nurture relationships with people who make you happy. After all, being able to share your journey with others is always fun.

Look for Meaning and Pursue It: Whether you’re the type of person who finds fulfillment in your career, with your family, in religion, or in some other way, it is important to recognize this and pursue meaning. If you’re in a job you dislike and have always dreamed of a different career, it is worth investing the time to pursue that dream.

Help Someone In Need: Altruism can help to satisfy both our social and fulfillment needs. It is hard not to feel good when you spend time help someone less fortunate. Try to regularly find time to help someone who needs it.

Everyone wants to be happy. At White House Marketing, we have realized that happiness is in our reach if we actively seek it. Use these five tips and you can start making yourself happy too.

White House Marketing Discusses Four Tips For Impactful Public Speaking

Personal interactions are the cornerstone of White House Marketing’s business. So if you walk into our office, chances are you’ll find quite a few strong speakers. Unfortunately, this skill doesn’t come naturally for everyone. So, we’ve identified these four tips that can help make you a more impactful speaker:


  1. Before You Speak, Think About Your Audience: Before you say anything, you should be sure to understand your audience as well as you can. The best speeches and presentations are always tailored for the people listening to them. You can’t do this unless you first spending time analyzing those people. Be sure to ask yourself who they are and why they will be interested in what you have to say. From there, focus what you say on the parts that are most engaging for your audience.


  1. Hook Your Audience From the First Word: This may seem obvious; and frankly, it is. However, it isn’t something you should take for granted. The first couple of minutes of your presentation are crucial. You should spend the most time considering your first few words to ensure that they will immediately make your audience interested in listening to the rest of your speech.


  1. Always Include a Solution: In every speech or presentation, you should be addressing a problem that is relevant to your audience. Always make sure that you are offering a solution to that problem during your speech. This is the crux of persuasive speaking.


  1. Ask Your Audience to do Something: Every presentation should include a call to action for your audience. If your speech has made an impact, they should be inspired to take some sort of action. However, if you neglect to tell them what you want them to do, you will be missing a significant opportunity.


At White House Marketing, we have repeatedly leveraged these public speaking habits to our benefit. Keep these four ideas in mind when you are writing your next speech or presentation. Hopefully you will find that you are far more impactful and persuasive.

White House Marketing Discusses Productivity, Time Management

The White House Marketing team is an extremely energetic group. One of our favorite topics of conversation around the office is productivity hacking. We have all tried a variety of different tips and tricks to get more done in a day; some of which have been very useful, others not as much. Interestingly the most universally effective productivity secret we have found is also one of the simplest: work on the most important tasks during your most productive hours.


This is based on the fact that everyone naturally has a certain period in the day when they are their most productive. When and how long this time is varies from person to person; but we all have that point in the day when we get the most done. It is only logical to focus on our highest-leverage tasks during this period. That way we can be super productive when working on more impactful work, and save the other stuff for the rest of the day.


Unfortunately, identifying that certain time of day is not the easiest thing to do. We’ve found that there are a few steps that you can take to efficiently map out your productivity flow throughout the day. The first trick to this process is choosing a relatively light day; if you try to identify your most productive hours on a day when you have no time to rest, you won’t have the necessary control over your schedule.


The next step is extremely simple: keep track of what you do in a day and how you feel while doing it. With that data in hand, start to analyze the patterns. You should begin noticing times when you feel in the groove and get a lot done. Once you’ve identified the best time, use them to accomplish your most important tasks for the day.


If you are still struggling to find you most productive hours, try asking others for their observations of your flow throughout the day; they may notice something that you haven’t. If you take advantage of these tricks, you can greatly increase your productivity each day.

White House Marketing, Inc., Shares Four Tips to Make That Conference Count

Removing yourself from behind the virtual wall of your digital network is often intimidating. However, White House Marketing, Inc., sees conferences as networking and learning tools you cannot replicate easily. Make conferences work for you with these four tips.


1. Define Objectives


Know what you want from the conference. This will be a big outlay of time and money and if you cannot define your objective, it may be worth skipping. Know your goals ahead of time whether it is to get a specific message across or network with a particular group of people.

3. Design a System to Track Your Connections


Use a spreadsheet or other tool to track who you talk to and how to reach them. Add a few details so you can remember them better. You will like meet hundreds of people and you want a system to keep them all straight.


4. Follow Up After the Event


Send thank you notes to participants. Ask to connect through social media, whether that is LinkedIn or Facebook; keep the momentum of the connection going and help it evolve to something more significant for your career.


With a good plan, a conference can be very productive if you can avoid social pitfalls. Attend that conference with specific goals and be prepared to meet new people. That winning formula will make the time and money a good investment.
