B2B Lead Generation | Laugh and Learn Episode 30 | Thank an engineer

In this episode of our weekly B2B marketing show, Jeff Ogden, President of Find New Customers shares a valuable marketing lesson using wit and humor.

In this episode, we show how a company can make fun of world without their products. As we like to say – a dose of personality is what B2B companies really need, so “let your freak flag fly!”
