My Speaking Style
The entire heart of my speaking style is this: I love to deliver value. I love packing as much actionable content and strategies into every word I speak so that the audience will walk away with information that could potentially change their business or their lives. I value the “investment” of their time and attention, so I provide the the biggest return on that investment as possible. That philosophy has led to numerous instances where people have contacted me shortly after the event to share how they implemented something that I shared, which made an immediate impact on their business. That is why I love to speak.
Digital Summit Atlanta
I had the honor of speaking at Digital Summit Atlanta, which is a major digital marketing conference which has featured speakers from the top companies in the US. At the time, I was the innovation manager of digital marketing for Shaw Industries, Inc, which is a multi-billion dollar Berkshire Hathaway company. I spoke about “Email Marketing Best Practices” and shared numerous tips and strategies that people could implement to increase subscribers, open rates, click, through, rates, and conversions.
I also added a cool little twist to my speech. I took my best tips and scheduled tweets to go out while I was speaking. I had the tweets timed to the moment I would mention each tip, so people were seeing the tweets on twitter, sharing them, and the room began to fill with more people who were in the hallways & seeing the tweets. It quickly became a standing-room only session that I was able to share my best tips with.

The Future of Businesses in the Smoky Mountains
I’ve been heavily involved with digital marketing strategies for dozens of businesses in the Smoky Mountains over the years. So, after the Gatlinburg wildfire in November, 2016 traffic and visitors declined in the area. I was asked to speak at an event in April, 2017 to specifically provide ways that businesses could quickly (and free) reach more people and generate revenue through internet marketing strategies. I provided about a 20 minute talk packed full of Facebook strategies that businesses could use that day to immediately generate interest in visiting the area. Shortly after the event, I received multiple messages from people who had already seen an immediate impact for their business.
Below is what the event organizer had to say about my speech:
” I do not say this often, but your presentation today was great! I do not impress easy and today was impressed. 🙂 Really good value you brought to the table today in your presentation. Thank you again for all you do.” – Justin Jones CEO of Internet Marketing Expert Group
