  • 11 Rules You Must Follow to Be a LinkedIn Marketing Master October 17, 2014
    At my company, Fusion Marketing Partners, we have a policy of not spending money on marketing or sales. We are “pull” (inbound) marketers to the core and this philosophy has served us well. Of course, we do lots of “push” (outbound) marketing for clients, but we try to move them in the direction of pull marketing in order to drive ...
  • Should You Market to Pain or Persona? October 3, 2014
     I just had an interesting conversation about campaign targeting with a really smart client. We were discussing the best way not only to attract prospects, but also to set up a lead nurturing campaign that will convert the largest number possible into paying clients. The technical definition of persona is “the way you present yourself to the world.” But in m […]
  • Important Lessons for Working with Channel Partners September 26, 2014
    It can be a compelling proposition to have external companies working for your success without the heavy investments necessary to build, equip, and train an internal sales organization – particularly if you need to reach a broad geographic area.

  • How to Use B2B Marketing to Propel Rapid Sales Growth September 16, 2014
    I just listened to an interesting podcast featuring my old colleague Heidi Melin. Heidi is CMO of Plex Systems and is a well-respected marketer.

Naturally, as a former CMO of, and current ...
  • Do You Need to Recombobulate Your B2B Marketing? September 5, 2014
    Bear with me a bit and I will explain the odd title of this post. I read an interesting tweet from Moira Geary, who gave herself the moniker of “Recombobulator.” While I had actually heard of this term previously, I was not sure of its exact meaning. Intrigued, I looked up the definition and found it was short and sweet: ...
  • Commerce Interrupted – Four Barriers That Stop Your Prospects from Becoming Customers! August 25, 2014
     There are three primary objectives of a marketing campaign: Find qualified prospects (potential buyers). Create desire within these prospects to purchase your product or service. Remove all barriers to the purchase process. Many B2B and B2C companies do a good job at the first two objectives. They know where to find prospects, or better yet, they help prosp […]

  • Can We Please Tell the Truth in Our Marketing Communications? August 5, 2014
    This post was inspired by a negative marketing event. I received a personalized letter in an official-looking envelope from a company called: ABC Shareholder Services (real name not used to protect the guilty). The letter claimed that since I was a holder of shares in a certain mutual fund, they needed to speak with me about a “very important matter.”  ... […]
  • Do Multiple Authors Create Better Marketing Content? July 25, 2014
    I just read an interesting newsletter article titled “Copywriters: should you guarantee your clients results?” written by noted copywriter Bob Bly. I enjoy reading Bob’s writing because he usually offers opinions that are both practical and frank. This article was no exception because it brought up a delicate and important subject. Bly’s main point was that […]
