Molander & Associates Inc.
CEO, 1997 - present
Molander & Associates Inc. is a boutique education and training company showing professionals across the globe how to make social media sell for their business. We produce live events and publish books, audio CDs and online training programs that help business people sell more products and services, more often, using the Internet.
Founder, Jeff Molander is the authority on making social media sell and a sought-after corporate trainer to small businesses and global corporations like Brazil’s energy company, Petrobras. He’s an accomplished entrepreneur, having co-founded what is today the Google Affiliate Network. He serves as adjunct digital marketing faculty at Loyola University’s school of business and is author of Off the Hook Marketing: How to Make Social Media Sell for You, the first book to show how any business can make social media produce leads and sales, starting today.
Jeff is different from most social media experts because he brings a view like no other. If you’re looking for a speaker who shows chief executives, marketers, students or business owners how to make social media sell Jeff Molander is for you. Audiences come away from Jeff’s speeches, workshops and products with greater clarity on how to create more leads and sales using a practical, hype-free approach to creating sales with social media marketing.
