Brad “B-Rad” Elliott of Showalter Flying Service, Orlando (ORL) is our guest this week.

We talk about:

  • “B-Rad’s” experience with online marketing
  • Social media as an icebreaker for in-person networking or sales.
  • Showing you care about your “family” – customers, employees, former employees, etc.
  • Using social media as a conversation, not a billboard
  • Using different social media tools and strategies for different reasons & results
  • Helpful, engaging content, including Hurricane Tips and Questions of the Month
  • Really good (and really bad) examples of trade show marketing.
  • How great marketing shows your personality and your company’s culture.  It can’t be faked and there is no substitute for having a great team that really cares about customers.   Showalter “hires for attitude and trains for experience” to ensure that the attitude is consistent and shines through in every customer interaction.
