A world-class network from Marketing Made Simple TV and the BMA

Marketing Made Simple TV was an awesome show created and hosted by yours truly.  But it also gave me a world-class network.  Let me share an example.

By the way, the domain was “stolen” while I was hospitalized. The domain expired while I was in an induced coma and someone else took it.  Unfortunately, www.marketingmadesimple.tv isn’t even working now.Marketing Made Simple TV

I recently moved down to the Tampa Bay area and I wanted to publish with the Business Marketing Association. But there were none in Florida.  Let’s create one.

So I sent an email to the Executive Director.  A few days later I got a reply, but that is where it ended. I got no more emails.  I emailed him and never got a reply.  He’s an older man, so email might not be the best.

Needed to talk to him on the phone, so I needed his number  But who has his phone number?

Then I realized my good friend and Chief Marketing Officer Sandra Zoratti would undoubtedly have it, as she has blogged about the BMA in Denver  So I sent a text message to her mobile phone and in seconds I got the reply “Yes, I have his number, Jeff. Let me look it up.”

Soon thereafter, I had the Executive Director’s mobile phone number.

I called him the next day and we had a nice chat on forming a chapter of the BMA.  He said they are working on new paperwork and need two weeks, but start forming a Board of Directors right away headed by me, Jeff Ogden of Find New Customers.

If I had not created Marketing Made Simple TV, I would not have known Sandra and I would not have gotten the mobile phone number of the executive director of the BMA.

What do you think? Love comments here.
