Barry Moltz, Author

“Marketing is not a sometime thing”

“Marketing isn’t something a small business does when they have no business. It is an all the time thing so they can be there when their customers are ready to buy. It is critical for growing companies to have a systematic process where they are always marketing their company.”

Barry Moltz is a radio host, entrepreneur and author of three best-selling business books. 

Kevin Lao, Google

That’s a lot of prospective customers who are searching for the products and services offered by your business.

Christine Landry, Dex Media

“Strike a balance between scheduling and real-time social media posts.”

event-speaker-photo-christine-landry“Planning and scheduling posts will make social media more manageable, so it’s a key component and will likely be the majority of your posts. But leave yourself open to spontaneous posts too that might include trending hashtags, smiling customers or funny employees.”
