Welcome to my new blog! I am creating this blog to start sharing the business development lessons I have learned working with federal and local government, within corporations, and as an entrepreneur.

A little about my business background: RoseAnn is a business development professional with 30 years of corporate and entrepreneurial experience in hi-tech online, imaging/ animation hardware/ software product management, marketing/ communications, operations and strategic planning. Her career includes participating in building the first intra-preneuring spin-off venture within Bell Labs, the AT&T Epicenter (Truevision); co-founding a spin-off of Pixar as President/CEO of The VALIS Group, Inc. and managing a successful 2D/ 3D graphics/animation international software publishing company and the multi-million dollar sale of proprietary technology to Adobe Systems. RoseAnn managed Business Operations for OneWorldJourneys.com (sponsored by Seiko/Epson) to produce online educational photo-documentaries of expeditions by famous wilderness photographers whose commitment to conservation have inspired the protection of special wilderness areas and threatened species. RoseAnn has developed and manages the economically successful tourism marketing program for Island County, Washington and is also a Biz/Dev Online Consultant for Transitioning to Green. ralspektor@transitioningtogreen.com.

Content Management Systems (CMS)Consulting: Cost-saving tip:If you are developing a new or upgrading an existing website, there is a lot you need to know about what features you will need in the back-end content management system to  update your website’s content after it goes live. It’s critical to identify and include these editing features as you are building or upgrading your website since they are inextricably tied into each part of the site. Adding major editing features later is quite costly. Contact me with your questions about what else you should know at valisgroup@earthlink.net.

Tourism Marketing Consulting: Guerrilla marketing tip: Take advantage of online calendars on websites that attract your target audience. They are FREE and are always looking for appropriate events and announcements. Yes it’s time-consuming but it’s free PR!
