There are so many people that are doing networking wrong or not even doing it at all. Building a network is the reason I haven't had to apply for a job since 1998 and I don't know nearly as much as Michael Roderick. 

Understand the difference between being a "Networker" and a "Connector".

#podcast   #marketing   #smb   #businesstips   #networking

Happy to be part of this great article! Tons of great tips. I especially like the one about not emailing a dead list. I preach this often because you're not only spending $$ sending to people that aren't opening, you're also hurting deliverability to the people that do want your message. #MAXIFY   #marketingtips  
If you're DOING marketing and getting no results, then you're making these marketing mistakes, here's what to do instead.

  • Marketing Group Therapy Podcast
    Host, Producer, 2014 - present
    My favorite part of digital marketing conferences was spending time with other marketers in the halls and after-hours hanging out and sharing our stories. It's a place where we could talk about trials and triumphs, make connections and help each other out. A time of bonding. I came to refer to it as "group therapy". This podcast brings those experiences to everyone. A time to sit down with our peers--real-world marketers--to learn from each other, to be inspired and to make us all better as a group.
