What You Need to Know About Marketing on LinkedIn
LinkedIn has about half a billion users worldwide and the chances that your next client are scrolling through their feed right now is likely. The largest B2B social platform in the world has came out with more feature updates in the first half of 2017 than the entirety of 2016.

The point: LinkedIn is catching on like wildfire! (not a Game of Thrones reference either!)

Live With Passion: Remembering 1st LT Lee
There are times in one’s own life that stick out as defining moments that shape who we are, the same way a massive flood can change the Earth’s landscape by carving it into pieces and destroying what was once there.

On April 29th of this year, I received a call from an old Army friend of mine that no one was expecting. He called and told us that Weston Lee had been hit by an IED and passed away the night before.

Guerrilla Marketing Is Very Much Alive
We are used to having information thrown at us everyday, that at some point, we zone out and stop absorbing it all. Guerrilla Marketing is an advertising strategy that focuses on low-cost unconventional marketing tactics. It is about taking the consumer by surprise, making an indelible impression and creating copious amounts of social buzz. 
Solutions Versus Services
How many times have you been called up or emailed about someone trying to sell you on their “services”? Well more times than not, this is turn off for many executives and decision makers. This is the case for a few reasons, so let’s take a look at why:
3 Ways Content Distribution Can Propel Your Brand
Content is King. But Distribution is Queen... And she wears the pants!
 
It can be extremely frustrating to put in the hours that it takes to create amazing content and never see any results. I can remember when I first started blogging more than 8 years ago and see 2 people actually read it. Typically, those two people were my parents... thanks mom!

But the reason why your blog isn't being read is summed up in three words: Distribution, Distribution, Distribution!

Training your Sales Team like the Army

Life in the Army isn’t for everyone. It’s tough, nasty, and brutal at times. The only thing that prepares you for the things you have to do in the military is the training you receive.

The training serves 3 purposes:

1.       Skills

2.       Team communication

3.       Adaptability

My Best Sales Meeting Ever
Just Starting Out:

When I first started out in sales I was basically held to the flame. I had all the training in the world about our product, but zero training on sales. So, I did what anyone would do in that situation, I talked about what I knew. I would walk into a sales pitch, open our sales deck, and my entire presentation would cover every single feature about our brand new “thingymabob”.

Why every marketing team needs a data scientist
Speaking to a Professor at one of America's largest Universities the other day in Atlanta, was an eye-sight into how slow many universities are moving in creating educational programs for marketers to have jobs in the future.

This particular University, isn't sitting by the side-line. In fact, they are leading the way and have added Data Science to the program, and are ensuring that each and every person who does a marketing degree has an opportunity to learn about data science and all that it encompasses.
The cut-throat world of marketing performance
Ultimately companies are looking for two things; increase their brand awareness and more sales. The role that marketing plays in this is pivotal, and as we move closer to understanding marketing analytics across the entire spectrum of marketing, we are realizing that marketing performance is not only getting more cut-throat, and precise, with amateur or lazy marketers being caught out - but it is also getting more 'real'.
I'm feeling nostalgic about Atlanta
Waking up today, I have to say, I am feeling quite nostalgic about Atlanta and all it means to me over the past 5 years.

I came here with little or no expectations, just a desire to try something new. From there, and the people I met, something ticked. For many Atlanta appears from the outset to be quite sleepy, but once you cut through the leafy streets, and the urban sprawl, there is so much more depth.
Increase Sales by 300% With LinkedIn
(2 min read)

I'll have to admit, I've been a big time skeptic. There’s a conversation going around that cold calling is dead, and I just couldn’t bring myself to believe it.

I mean, what happened to being “held to the flames”? My first sales job I was on the floor making cold calls and closing big contracts within a few weeks.

The sales hangover - do you have one?
What a huge week it's been in client acquisition. We are not sure whether summer is officially over and everyone is ready to capitalise on their businesses opportunities that lay in front of them for the rest of the year, or they simply know they need marketing, and are calling the first company that comes up on Google.
What Presentation Platform Should You Use?
Throughout the past few months there has been a strong amount of interest in finding creative new presentation platforms. Everyone wants to use a ground breaking presentation platform that will blow clients and team members away, however; there are some limitations with presentations. Want to know why so many platforms fall to boring old Powerpoint?
The Great American Eclipse
It’s amazing what a scientific anomaly can do to our culture and our businesses. It was a pleasant surprise to pull up my social media profiles and not see endless Trump posts, for or against.  Everyone around the U.S. dropped everything and acknowledged an event much larger than a personal opinion or celebrity story. So just how big of an effect did the eclipse have on the US?
Become A Master of Frame Control
Have you ever gone into a sales pitch and started using old techniques like the age-old SPIN selling tactic to close the deal? I can remember growing up and watching all those old movies from the 80s that featured "go getters" in suits screaming out to each other "Always Be Closing!".
