In October 2011 I was invited to deliver the keynote at LA2M.Org. Since LA2M stands for Lunch Ann Arbor Marketing, I knew I needed something in the marketing genre. Over the past year I have been playing around with “Relationship Marketing” as an all encompassing term for social media, online networking, business networking and everything else having in this area.

I put this 84 slide presentation together and managed to deliver it in under 30 minutes. While the audience received a ton of benefit from it I believe this should be at least a 75 minute talk. I look forward to delivering it again.

There is a link to this presentation on the LA2M site. Unfortunately the slides are A LOT pink. Even more unfortunate is after the talk ended a couple of smart guys worked with me on the laptop and figured out how to change it and make it regular color. Better late than never.

Here is the presentation information (you can also click on the link above to see this text and the video):

We all know how important it is to show up on page 1 on Google. But did you know that most everyone “searches” the same spot before they even log on to their computer when seeking a solution? They go to their brain. You want to make sure that your brand is the first thing they think of when they hear an opportunity for your industry. This fun and fast paced presentation will:

* Define relationship marketing

* Teach you effective personal branding you can use both online and off

* Show you how to create concise and specific branding messages

* Help you leave a positive imprint on everyone you meet

* Discuss techniques on how to be the best conversationalists people will meet
