Marketing is easy when you’re already famous. All you have to do is be bold, a bit controversial and, ideally, funny. But what do you do if you’re not already famous? How do you build an online following if you’re just an ordinary person?
David Mitroff knows how to leverage technology, events and online tools to generate traffic, both online and off. His level of expertise is exemplified by his own career path. David came from corporate America and left a good job to start his own consulting firm. Since then, he’s amassed an email list in the tens of thousands, held hundreds of business events and attracted clients from all around the world.
The problem with most Keynote Speakers is that they don’t acknowledge the scrappy “tips and tricks” that generate real results. Instead, they talk about strategic marketing objectives and refining your corporate message. Yes, those things are important, but the real results come from hacking into the digital leadership and entrepreneurial mindset and giving people incentives to share your content, ideas, brand and more. In the end, your customers (and your team) have to embrace your brand identity voluntarily. They have to carry your torch by choice. Why do people embrace one brand over another? It turns out that there are specific things you can do to create that impact!
Dr. Mitroff includes tons of practical examples that are designed to make an impact in his keynotes. It’s clear that he built his own online identity from the ground up, and now he’s sharing that approach with the world. Having said that, he delivers on structure and strategy as well. He shares his considerable experience, allowing attendees to formulate sophisticated marketing strategies while maintaining an entrepreneurial approach.
