Is Your Marketing Really Proactive?

Posted by Corey Smith on Aug 31, 2023 8:54:00 AM

I’ve been working in some form of marketing or sales for almost 40 years. Yes, I’m getting old, but I’m not that old. I sold newspapers door to door when I was throwing papers for The Press Enterprise in Southern California as a young lad. But when I was 16 years old, I really got my initiation into the industry by learning how to run a 2-color printing press for my father’s new print shop in Tempe, Arizona.

Your Sales Pitch Sucks & 5 Tips To Solve It

Posted by Corey Smith on Jul 27, 2023 8:00:00 AM

Let me get to the switch on that bait right off the bat. Your sales pitch is probably okay. What really sucks is your sales approach. But, that might not make you feel any better.

The sales world is changing. In my opinion, the consumer isn’t really changing but, instead, the options available to consumers in they way they buy makes the consumer realize they don’t have to put up with the crap traditional sales people spin. Inbound marketing has changed the way people buy and if sales people are still using the old methods of selling the consumer simply gets angry.

In 2007, I was working for a local company in Boise, Idaho, and really wasn’t happy in my role. I was working for Fisher’s Technology (at the time, it was called Fisher’s Document Systems) as their VP of Innovation. When I was first promoted to that position, I loved it. I was able to use my passion for new things and technology to bring new products and services to the table. I brought document management to their sales team (among other things).

4 Key B2B Marketing Guidelines

We talk a lot about business-to-consumer (B2C) marketing. But what about business-to-business (B2B)? What are the differences in a marketing strategy when selling to businesses as opposed to selling to Tom, Dick, or Harry? Well, I'll tell you what the differences are: not much.
