INSPIRED TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
Experienced Sales/Marketing Technology Executive, Brand Strategist, Analytics Guru & Entrepreneur.
I grew up doing sales. When my father failed as an early NuSkin distributor, my summer as a 12 year old was spent going door to door hawking samples of NuSkin products. I have made my career as a sales and marketing professional with successful startups that I grew from no revenue to millions per year. I enjoy breaking down and understanding the process of successful sales workflows. My recent focus has been learning and mastering digital marketing with an emphasis on content-driven inbound marketing. I love optimizing marketing and sales systems and creating improved efficiencies that unlock revenue potential in organizations. In today’s sales environment, marketing is critical to the sales process and old mindsets of sales being driven by top-shelf closers is an unsustainable and archaic strategy for scaling revenue. Marketing and sales don’t exist in separate silos and should flow into each other and support one other because when they align and complement the other and are enabled by automation technology that’s when I see skyrocketing results that are truly scalable.
I am a strong advocate for keeping the focus on your customer. It’s crazy how many organizations lose sight of who their customers are and what drives customer purchasing behavior. Knowing your customer’s buyer personas and their pain points is a must-have for successful marketing and sales execution.
I am a growth hacker, a marketer, a salesman, a strategist, a team builder, a trainer, a coach and an educator who focuses on defining strategic product positioning, bridging gaps between marketing intent and actual sales results. My experience is primarily with small to medium size business dealing with B2B/B2C SaaS and E-commerce.
SALES, MARKETING & CREATIVE.
I have a unique skill set that combines successful experience in not only sales and marketing but also in the creative aspects required to successfully execute a beginning to end revenue solution.
We live in a world where everything is now digital. Websites are the heart of company identities and because up to 70% of the buyer journey is completed before a buyer ever reaches out to a company — digital engagement, branding, design, strategy, content and purpose needs to be a top priority.
I grew up with old-school interruption marketing as the primary strategy to engage perspective customers. After an immersive education and practical experience of creating, managing and evaluating dozens of digital marketing campaigns and learning from the data-driven feedback — I am now a strong advocate of permission marketing that recognizes the effect technology has had on the evolution of the buying process. The buyer is in control with 70% of the buyer’s journey complete before a buyer even reaches out to sales (SiriusDecisions).
Effective sales is about delivering solutions that solve problems. The easier you can solve a problem, the faster you’ll generate sales — love your customers and they will love you; there is no more powerful sales asset than having customers act as brand ambassadors for your products and services.
