Story

Using Technology to do Business the Old Fashion Way!!
Introduction

I have completed a Doctoral Degree in Business Administration with a concentration in Online Marketing Adaption Strategies.

The dissertation work was focused on Interactive Marketing as it pertains to Local Business. The purpose of the study was to measure the effectiveness of interactive marketing techniques on an organizations revenue.

Current research is on Technology Adaption and Continuance.  The value of new technology can only be realized if the company effectively integrates the systems into the current processes and procedures.

Thanks.............Jim

Your clients use the Internet to research their purchases. How easy are you making it for them to find you online?
 
72% of B2B buyers used social media to research their purchase decision in 2014.

Still think #SocialSelling doesn't matter? The data doesn't lie:
If you're a salesperson who hasn't started incorporating social media into your process, now's the time.

Have you considered 'social sharing' as the most important aspect of Social Media Marketing? If so, 83% of CMOs agree, and Google+ is built to share!

In the exhibit world, we constantly have to juggle between "right brained" and "left-brained" thinking. The challenge is developing a creative idea and managing all of the small pieces on a timeline. #tradeshow #planning #management 
In Event Planning is left brain or right brain thinking more important? The left brain is characterized as logical, realistic and task focused. The right brain is known to be creative, emotional and intuitive.

Rob McClure of Smith Bailey is such a great guy. If you have been unfortunate to have some property damage due to fire, water, or some other disaster, call their office and they will fix you up. They are experts at repairs, but Rob is also a person you can trust to take be there for you when disaster hits. Very professional!! Jim
