Marketing Made Simple TV is the show I created and hosted before I took my huge fall and was divorced and we had great guests on the show, which I want to share with you.
The show stared when I did a webinar on marketing with Act-On Software and VP of Marketing David Applebaum loved my passion and contacted and invited me to do “Phase 2.” with them. Host a TV show called Mad Marketing TV.
I had never interviewed anyone or been on camera, but I said “Yes, David.” Mad Marketing TV was Act-On Software’s show. But David left to become the VP of Marketing at Moka 5 and the new CMO, Atri Chattergee pulled the plug on the show.
Talked to my good friend Jim Burns of Avitage,who’is a content marketing expert and great friend. Jim said “Jeff, you created the show. Why do you need Act-On Software?” Jim was right.
The new show needed a name, a logo and I wanted to make it better and better, so Marketing Made Simple TV was born I worked hard to make it better and better for the show viewers and guests, like making it shorter and getting into the show faster..
Craig Yaris of Social Ribbit directed all the shows too and I booked awesome guests. That was so much fun, but I had a major fall and nearly died.While I was in the hospital, the domain of http://www.marketingmadesimple.tv expired and someone took it.
My accident story was featured in a great article published by Salesforce,com called The Importance of Attitude, Check it out.
I lost my TV studio and moved down to St, Petersburg, Florida, which is much warmer than New York City.
It is a very nice place to live, but let me introduce you to the top 10 of our wonderful show guests, because we had a lot of great ones. That is the reason I am the President of the Business Marketing Association of Tampa Bay as you will see by checking out my LinkedIn profile at the top right.
