I’m at the Growth 2.0 event put on by Entrepreneur Magazine and exclusively sponsored by The UPS Store. In fact, sponsor may not be the right word – they are more like benefactors as they have made the event entirely free for entrepreneurs and small biz owners. This is unheard of in today’s economy and something that boggles the mind when you think about the kind of speakers and effort they have put into this event. I’ll be filling in the blanks after I hear some of their talks.
Jay Conrad Levinson is the keynote. One of the best known and admired names in marketing.
He left us with 20 “ENT” words to make your marketing successful:
7. Convenient Time is NOT money. Time is LIFE. Do not waste it.
8. Subsequent to the sale
9. Amazement Stories, we love stories
12. Dependent (look at affiliate marketing)
13. Armament (equipment to wage and win battles)
