What is your business or interest?

I started East Bay Marketing Group w/ my partner Jeff Motter a couple of years ago. We have had the chance to work w/ the most innovative and Game Changing companies in the world. What we do is really 2 fold - we work with well established companies to help them get to the "next level" of their business by first taking a look at their business to determine where growth is a possibility. Then we establish goals and and a step-by-step approach to get to where they want to be. We also have a work with entrepreneurs and small businesses to identify what they can improve. We created 2 online E-Learning Marketing Systems that walk these business owners and do-it-yourselfers through the same process that we walk large companies through. The difference is that this is an online system that we have created where there is really no one-on-one time and we don't have resources dedicated to individual companies. My goal is work with businesses to help achieve success regardless of economy!

What or who is a good referral for you?

The perfect referral is someone who is actively pursuing our services and has their hand raised to want to learn how to grow their business. For our East Bay Marketing clients - these businesses are in the $2 million-$20 million dollar range. And potentially larger. Our perfect client is currently doing a lot of their sales and marketing themselves, are selling a product that is primarily business-to-business, and have disparate systems that are leading to inefficiencies in their output. We help companies find new customers, get more business from existing customers and help them generate more referral business using our Direct Marketing experience. Everything we do is results oriented, measurable and implemented using proven methods that have worked for us in the real world over the last 30 years. It's simple for us, when it comes to marketing for business development; ROI is the only thing that matters.

How do you think Think LOCAL! will be able to help you and/or your business?

I am excited to be a part of Maine Successful Thinkers. I was introduced to the group by Mike Watts in Portland, Maine and am looking forward to the chance to meet a lot of like minded entrepreneurs that are working on their business or larger social issues. I love to hear that "There is no business in Maine" or that the economy here isn't that great - because groups and organizations like this allow me and others to point out that there really is opportunity in Maine. You just have to know where to look and know what you're look for. My thoughts are that there is a lot of untapped potential here and that groups like this help foster and facilitate that type of thinking. I am looking forward to these different Meet-Up Group and getting to know the members.

I just moved back to Maine after living the last 10 years in different parts of the country. I couldn't be more excited to be back where I grew up. There is something to be said about "coming home," and I feel blessed to have had the opportunity.
