Today we are joined by Craig Strent from Apex Home Loans. Wait – what does a “mortgage guy” know about Tech Marketing? It turns out…. a lot!
I’ve been watching Craig’s work for the last several years, and as I’ve gotten to know him I’ve been blown away with the consistency and effectiveness of his marketing. Marketing for Craig is no accident. It’s a consistent tool which has been masterfully used to consistently grow his company even through a down economy.
More than that, the tools and processes he uses can easily be leveraged by ANY CEO to grow their company, too.
In this interview, we talk about:
- How to create a system which allows your marketing to happen even without you making decisions about what to do
- How to think about your customer even when it’s not time for them to buy
- Why focus is a key to success in your marketing
