Mainstream Marketing Today

You cannot connect directly with your customer with traditional media. You have to buy access through advertising. The internet allows you to bypass the traditional media platforms and go directly to your customer and filter out those not interested in your product and provide content in a targeted fashion.

The internet and all the platforms on the internet are an amazing way to have a two way social stream. Traditionally through newspaper or TV, it’s a one way stream. You receive the news how it is being fed to you.

Now, you can pick and choose who you want to get your news from and more importantly you can communicate back to them directly.

Content Marketing Strategy

Dennis Washington - Content MarketingThe first step is to find your target audience. Not everyone is interested in your product so don’t try to target everyone.

Don’t pretend to be something you are not. Dennis has discovered he is really good at live streaming. He is a content marketer but he’s not the go to guy for LinkedIn or Snapchat.

Dennis has discovered it’s OK not to be the expert at everything, you need to niche down. When you are very specific about what you are good at, your customers will respond more favorably to you.

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.
