STOW, OHIO (January 12, 2015) — Professional organizer and Wholly Organized!® LLC founder Lynne Poulton is the proud recipient of the 2014 Distinguished Sales and Marketing Award® (DSMA®), sponsored by the Akron/Canton, Ohio affiliate of Sales & Marketing Executives International (SMEI). This honor recognizes the outstanding accomplishments of sales and marketing professionals in the Akron/Canton area.

“It is an honor to be nominated by my coach and recognized with this award by the Akron/Canton affiliate of Sales & Marketing Executives International (SMEI). I am continually inspired by my clients who welcome me into their lives and want to live in organized spaces,” explains Lynne. She will receive her award on February 24, 2015 at SMEI Akron’s 43rd annual gala event held at the Tangier in Akron.

Poulton’s success comes thanks to a carefully crafted business and marketing plan with the help of her coach and others in the organization. She outlined goals for her marketing efforts, with succinct processes, structures and plans. These pieces included a company website/brochure/newsletter, implementation of a CRM program, customer appreciation program, prospecting program, strategic partner initiatives, and a social media plan. As a result of these efforts, she has realized consistent month-over-moth and year-over-year income growth, and an 18% overall increase in client service hours. Lynne adds, “Being open to guidance, expertise, and wisdom from fellow business leaders has provided me the foundation to build my business. The belief that my combined social work skills and love for empowering others had value, and having energy and excitement around the holistic view of Wholly Organized! and how I could have a significant impact on the quality of life of people that I serve all play an important part in my success and continued growth.”
