...understand the "sizzle" approach to marketing
Cynthia Sudor taught us about how to put the “sizzle”/excitement in marketing our ChocolateCovers product to our customers and potential customers. Until we worked with Cynthia, we were all “steak”/just listing product and services. I began to understand the “sizzle” approach after the Strategic Positioning & Planning session we did together and this made a lot of sense to me. Before we were pushing our product by showing sample after sample. It was Cynthia that helped ChocolateCovers capture the feeling of our product. Our brand has changed with this new concept. Our marketing is now “people to people” instead of “people to product”. She has really helped us understand our positioning and how to connect to our target markets.
John Marcucci, President, ChocolateCovers, Hershey, PA
...the driving force behind revitalization
Cynthia Sudor really was the driving force behind ChocolateCovers’ revitalization. It was her energy and foresight that kicked us into high gear. Prior to Cynthia’s presence, ChocolateCovers was in danger of mediocrity. The moment she stepped through our doors, she began challenging us to work toward fulfilling the company’s full potential. She taught us about the importance of branding at every stage of the processes. With her guidance, we now have a uniquely branded company with a visually consistent collection consisting of a marketing kit, website, rack cards, businesses cards, stationary and photo-shoot imagery. As a designer, this cohesiveness makes it very easy to maintain our brand even after our sessions with Cynthia Sudor have been completed. Most importantly, however, Cynthia taught us to think for ourselves. She passed along her own hard earned knowledge from the years she worked in marketing and sales. It was wonderful to work with Cynthia and we highly recommended her to any company looking for marketing assistance.

...brought clarity to every step
I was very frustrated trying to understand marketing and create a marketing concept and plan of action for my new business, Horse Mastership Essentials. After meeting with Cynthia, and allowing her to guide me, the process for my ideas and what I needed to do were transformed. Cynthia brought clarity to every step she outlined for me to do. I now know how successful marketing needs to look and feel after her Strategic Positioning & Planning sessions, by following her “Five Step Plan” and believing in the value of the “Rack Card” and other marketing support materials. Her emphasis on “branding is in everything you do” in your business and learning how to really “sell the sizzle” not just “the steak” in marketing now makes perfect sense! Without having Cynthia Sudor on my team I would not be properly positioned for success.

Ben H. Nolt, Jr., Horse Mastership Essentials, PA

...insights are remarkable
“It is our privilege to partner with Cynthia A. Sudor Enterprises / Cynergy Marketing for all of our marketing needs.  Her insights into Strategic Positioning.

We take great comfort in knowing we have Cynthia as our dedicated marketing expert to go with us into the future.”

...children were very excited for the presentation!
“Cynthia came to North Side Elementary for an author's visit assembly for students at our elementary school. Each classroom had prepared for her visit by reading Adventures at Green Apple Acres. The stories were engaging and fun. Each story taught a life lesson to which students could easily relate. The children were very excited for the presentation and Cynthia didn't let them down. She was wonderful. She showed the kids pictures of the real animals that the characters in her stories were based on. She talked about the writing process and inspired our young authors to keep up their hard work."

...came in, got the ball rolling
“I worked with Cynthia Sudor over the course of a year when she served as marketing consultant to the Pennsylvania Wine Association’s first state-wide wine festival held in October 2005, in Hershey, PA.  One of the reasons we hired Cynthia was her expertise and background in finding suitable sponsors and community partnerships, but her dedication to our Festival – It’s deVine -- was so total that she ended up taking on responsibilities far beyond the original scope of her contract. When we began the project we had no identity, no plans and no real direction for this Festival.  Cynthia came in, got the ball rolling, named the Festival, developed the theme and logo, designed and printed stationery, brochures, posters and programs, planned the ads and media exposure, guided us through the whole process, picked up where others dropped the ball, helped negotiate our site, and worked through the whole Festival itself.  Throughout the process, she was always available, always ready to take  on whatever was needed, totally professional and completely dedicated to making our event a success. It was a pleasure to work with Cynthia on this project and to have learned so much from her in the process.”

H. Lee Miller. Proprietor, Chaddsford Winery, Chadds Ford, PA Chairman, It’s deVine, Pennsylvania Wine Festival, statewide wine festival

...she was a true partner in the project
“Cynthia latched onto the Pennsylvania Wine Festival concept immediately and created the theme line for the event even before we officially hired her!  From day one, she was a true partner in the project. Cynthia worked tirelessly to sign on sponsors and a Food Network talent as a branding element for the Festival, plus developed an amazing Marketing Plan. In addition, she wrote and produced a variety of first-rate materials (posters, tickets, ads, programs, etc.) that earned raves from members, media, sponsors and the public.  Cynthia worked in partnership with the media and the sponsors to create exciting promotions to extend the Festival's hard advertising dollars. Throughout the months of hard work, I knew I could count on Cynthia to complete everything she promised on time and on budget.  Cynthia's contributions toward making the 1st PA Wine Festival, It's deVine, a success were significant, and it was a pleasure working with such a professional.”

Jenny Engle, former Executive Direction, PA Wine Association

...committed to ongoing assistance
“While my wife, Nina, and I were familiar with many of the challenges and needs of adults with disabilities because of our daughter, Miriam’s challenges, we were complete novices in the area of marketing. Cynthia Sudor lent her expertise to help us formulate a marketing campaign and strategy that gained us a great deal of favorable attention. She was instrumental in assisting us to create marketing materials. She stressed the need for a logo with impact and put us in touch with an excellent graphic designer who designed one for us. At the same time, she helped us to write the brochures and counseled us on how to get media attention. Cynthia stressed the need to make our message consistent and powerful to promote fundraising for our charitable cause. She has been committed to ongoing assistance to mentor us through writing proposals for naming opportunities. At the beginning of the process, there could not have been two people more in need of marketing direction. We were lucky to find such an excellent tutor. Cynthia was patient, enthusiastic, and generous with her time and knowledge. Partly as a result of her help, Hope Springs Farm was able to open in October, 2005, with a refurbished activity center serving a number of adults with disabilities.”

...awesome 'people skills'
“Having worked with Cynthia in the community over the past 20 years, I felt confident that when she was selected by the United Methodist Home for Children to conduct our Strategic Planning sessions and Public Awareness Campaign she would analyze the overall project and guide us in laying the right foundation. Her professional expertise in Marketing coupled with her awesome ‘people skills’ guided us successfully through the Strategic Planning phase which was crucial to the development of our concentrated Public Awareness Campaign. Through her patient guidance during these Strategic Planning sessions, she created a climate of respect for all opinions as we tackled the extremely complicated task of designing an integrated logo (for three corporations!) and a theme line to be used in all of our marketing  and Public Relations materials. The outcome was a success and became a vital part of our  Public Awareness Campaign. Patience, integrity and dedication to her clients are all integral parts of who Cynthia is and why she achieves success. It was both exciting and self challenging in working with Cynthia, plus a great sense of fulfillment.”

Nancy Lee Stone, former President of the Asset Board of Trustees United Methodist Home for Children, Mechanicsburg, PA

We shared that Plan with the United Cerebral Palsy of Central Pennsylvania, our partner, and they were impressed with the strategic depth of the results. At the beginning of the process, there could not have been two people more in need of marketing direction. We were lucky to find such an excellent tutor. Cynthia was patient, enthusiastic, and generous with her time and knowledge. Partly as a result of her help, Hope Springs Farm was able to open in October, 2005, with a refurbished activity center serving a number of adults with disabilities.”
