Oh..........The Awkward Introduction

How exactly do you begin with the introductory blog? Do you begin with the traditional AA intro, Hi my name is Garret and I am in a social media class, or the online dating profile?

I worked for the local COOP in Hinton, OK when I was 16.  The manager of the COOP’s name was Mike. Mike could barely even spell Internet more or less use it. That being said, Mike is one of the best people I know and is a pretty good hand when it comes to marketing. His marketing strategy wasn’t gimmicky or focused on keywords it was focused on a few principles that are easy to say, but not so easy to accomplish.

Be the expert
Establish a network of loyal customers
Be that person everyone wants to be around
