My name is Rich and I consider myself a marketing professional specializing in demand generation and lead management. I learn so many interesting tips, tactics and strategies every day and I feel a strong desire to share them. There are 3 reasons I feel I can deliver value to my readers:
- I’m an entrepreneur and have started a variety of businesses; currently I help run my wife’s career coaching business.
- I work on the demand generation team for a large high-tech company where I get to apply my craft everyday.
- I help other small businesses not only with digital marketing but also with operations, sales and strategy.
My focus is on small to medium-sized businesses because this is where I’m needed most. Enterprise-level demand generation and lead management is a different animal because of the budget those firms have. Small and medium-sized businesses need to learn about demand generation and will see the most dramatic gains from what they learn.
