Bob Burg, Author of The Go-Giver

A highly sought-after speaker at corporate conferences and entrepreneurial events, Bob Burg is best known as coauthor of the business parable, “The Go-Giver”.  Bob is an advocate, supporter and defender of the Free Enterprise system, believing that the amount of money you makes is directly proportional to how many people you serve. And, he is also an unapologetic animal fanatic. Bob has written four books that have sold over 250,000 copies each.

Having a marketing calendar 2015 saves you from making a common small business marketing mistake…or what I like to call…spaghetti marketing. The throw it at the wall and see if it sticks approach to small business marketing is a real killer. And here’s why.

It’s very easy to make a wrong decision based on anecdotal evidence. We tend to hang with other people who reflect our values, likes, dislikes and habits. In fact, funny enough, if you were to write out an avatar or profile for your ideal client, you would notice that they start to resemble…YOU!
