Get Traction, not Spin

We can spin in circles forever if we let all the buzz about marketing get to us, so sort it out.

Your marketing plan gives you traction when you capture your new contacts and flow them into your ongoing messaging.

Your market determines your best marketing channels.

Triangulate your personal and virtual relationships and discover the power of knowing other people and making sure that they know you. Get to know people and reach out to them virtually and in person. Take advantage of this huge opportunity. Make your virtual connections real by reaching out and shaking hands with the people in your virtual networks. It may be one of the fastest ways to position yourself as an expert in your field and get traction for your service and business.
