Being popular as a social media influencer never converts. Having something compelling to say that connects you to your target audience in such a way as to convey you “get” their pain points, you have a solution, and you care…that’s what converts. Trust converts.” – Tamara McCleary
#1 social influencer: (Documented by third party analytics) 2016 conferences including: IBM Amplify, DistribuTECH, Enterprise Connect, Channel Partners, RSA, NAB Show, Subscribed, Gartner Security, and IBM Interconnect.
Marketers today are challenged to become knowledgeable technologists. It’s CMOs today who are making purchasing decisions on CDN, not the IT department. In a world of Digital Transformation where companies must become digital to the core or bust, the rules have changed. Silos are challenged, and the ‘who does what’ lines are blurred. Today a digitally savvy c-suite and board are imperative to withstand the futuristic winds and shifting tide.” – Tamara McCleary
