Bent Business Marketing & Advertising

A marketing and advertising firm implementing small business promotional tactics that work. http://bentbusinessmarketing.com 815.441.2219

I have a confession to make. When I started Bent Business Marketing back in 2012, I was seriously wet behind the ears. I just came home from a huge marketing conference in Texas. I met hundreds of successful marketers who seemed to have this “game” all figured out. They dressed nicely, their hair perfectly coiffed, and their watches were the size of dinner plates. Back then, I was amazed by such success. And I had to have it! I had just left eleven years nestled in the financial safety of Uncle Sam’s bosom. My pay arrived predictably on the 1st and 15th of every month. Why did I leave? I grew to become a cold person. My jovial spirit was exhausted. I had dreams of living a life where I could dedicate myself to the betterment of humankind. So in November of 2011, I punched out of the military, and sought to answer the ever-so pressing question…What do I want to be when I grow up? If you are a friend or connection on Facebook, you will notice that this profile summary is a re-write. The old words painted a picture of some dude with swagger overload just looking to make a fast buck. But that wasn’t me! I was blindly following the lead of people I didn’t even know. And it lured me into a world where I was expected to give very little value but request a ton of cash in return. Every time I sat across the table looking at some young start-up entrepreneur in the eyes, I yearned to share every bit of my knowledge with them, but struggled with what to ask in return. I was incapable of charging someone $500 for a logo designed online for $5. This action may be viewed as a bad business decision, but I felt like I just wasn’t giving more than I was going to receive (thanks to the book the Go-Giver!). So I continued to study marketing, but began concentrating more on personal and leadership development. Another book, StrengthsFinder 2.0 completely changed my life, and now I am pursuing the goal of becoming a Certified Gallup Strengths Coach.

How Loud Is Your Bullhorn?

What’s the big idea? What makes your product or service different? If you sell Product A and three other places sell Product A and there’s no definitive difference, you need to create one. You need to sell me your passion and uniqueness…not just your product. “Need electrical repair? Call Bob.” Okay. That’s great, Bob. But why should I call YOU, and not your competitor?
