Another blog in a blogosphere of over 8 million (at last count) is not noteworthy; HOWEVER, it is my hope that this blog will be a useful addition because of the content it will offer.
That content will consist of practical, "how-to" marketing/business development information specifically for professional service firms and the professionals within them. One of my life's passions is helping people reach their goals. I'm fortunate to work for a company (Mercer Capital Management, Inc. www.mercercapital.com) that believes in sharing information. If we share with you, you will share with us, and we'll all grow together.
A bit about Mercer Capital. We are one of the leading business valuation and investment banking firms in the nation. We serve a national and international clientele. I have over 20 years of experience in professional service firm marketing and having been the second employee at Mercer Capital, I believe an important part of our growth and certainly a witness to what marketing, leadership, learning, and a continual focus on excellence can achieve.
This blog is called "MarketingU" because it is designed to be a mini-marketing university for professional service firm marketers. It is also designed around the "Brand You" concept (thanks Tom Peters) for the professional who is seeking to raise his or her profile.
Enjoy and feel free to contact me with any questions or comments you might have.
