Way too many companies cheat. Marketing is easy when you have the right strategy.

TeXchange Houston announced its dinner seminar series a success, after last week’s event for Houston technology and emerging business community was a standing success.

Speaker’s for last week’s event titled: Revenue Opportunity Management Part A: Marketing Technology & Tactics for Growth included panelist Bret Star, Managing Partner from The Starr Conspiracy and Daniel Lynton, CEO and Founder of LytnonWeb, as well as moderator Garry E. Meier, Ephor Group Founder and TeXchange Chairman.

“Beyond the practical how-to advice on the latest marketing technology and tools for cost-efficient revenue success, what had people standing up for the Q&A was our panelists insights that the CEOs were able to take back and apply to their companies immediately,” commented Garry E. Meier. “The metrics, tools, and processes shared at TeXchange are the fundamental tactics we’ve seen distinguish market laggards from leaders in the institutional investment community and Bret and Daniel gave TeXchange the playbook for success.”

“Marketing success is not only about technology tools or content,” remarked Daniel Lytnon. “Reaching success requires online marketing technology solutions directly connected to business growth strategies.”

“Way too many companies cheat,” said Bret Starr when asked about why small businesses are not successful marketers. “Marketing is easy for great brands. Marketing is easy for great writers. Marketing is easy for small business when you have the right strategy, focus and approach.”
