Into B2B Interactive Marketing

127 Brian Basilico The Bacon SystemBrian started his entrepreneurial journey at the age of 18. He started with a recording studio at his father’s basement. Eventually he went to work for various ad agencies and production companies.

When he opened his company 16 years ago, social media was not yet around. Business card CDs were his primary products. But, he constantly reinvented himself as the years progressed.

I help companies find their ideal customers online to generate more sales. I show you why and teach you how.” -Brian Basilico

His experiences led him to become an expert in B2B interactive marketing. But, he understood that B2B interactive marketing is not easy. That was why he wrote the book to help people.

Not About You

127 Brian Basilico The Bacon SystemBrian’s first book was It’s Not About You, It’s About Bacon. It taught people about the importance of social media in relationship marketing. BACON is actually an acronym which stands for Building Authentic Connections Online Networking.

The thing that we do is that we really grow by teaching other people.” -Brian Basilico

He considered individuals who were most successful in their pursuits, and created something that teaches others how they can also be successful.

The BACON System

127 Brian Basilico The Bacon SystemThe BACON system is a 12-step program for those who tried things and failed. They may have tried social media, Ad Words, and other things to grow their business but did not succeed.

The right audience was the one that had the desire to make change, the passion for what they were doing, and the money to make it happen.” -Brian Basilico

To help them out, the program has 3 main pieces that they can apply. The first piece is called the home base, where they figure out their ideal avatar.

The second piece is about having a killer website. Brian saw the need for business owners and entrepreneurs to understand how websites work nowadays. You too can find out what is really happening in the industry, and come up with good solutions for your company.

About Jaime Jay

Meet Jaime Jay – a man who wears many hats, and wears them all admirably. He's a master connector, an entrepreneur extraordinaire, and a published author who knows how to get things done.

Before he found his way to the business world, Jaime served his country as a brave paratrooper in the U.S. Army. But that's just the beginning of his many accomplishments.

He's the founder of the renowned Bottleneck Distant Assistant Services firm, and his book "Quit Repeating Yourself" has become a must-read for entrepreneurs everywhere.

When he's not busy building his empire, you can find him on his beloved Harley Davidson, cruising through the countryside and taking in the invigorating effects of Uitwaaien – a Dutch practice that involves facing the wind to boost health and relieve stress.

He enjoys spending his free time outside building stuff with his wife, Nikita the dog and their two kittens (for now at least) Tommy and Tater.

He is ‘over-the-moon’ happily married to his wonderful wife Sara, his amazing daughter, Jessica, who is serving our country as a United States Army soldier. Jaime and Sara are the proud grand parents of two beautiful little girls.
