Why So Serious? Earning Loyalty, Advocacy & New Customers through Humor

Last week, a UK based travel company received an interesting Facebook post – a user posted a screenshot of a travel itinerary that listed a layover of 413,786 hours (or roughly 47 years).

Video Marketing: Let’s Get Musical!

Building Rapport Before the Lead Is the Way to Win the Sale

In my last blog article, I discussed the importance of building rapport with leads through the use of “Why Buy From Me” and “Lead Response” videos personalized for each customer.

Branding 101?...Not Until You Understand And Have A Brand

What is a brand? If reputation is a brand, a visit to a dealer ranks below one to the dentist.
