    It’s a challenge for entrepreneurs to figure out where to invest their precious marketing dollars in a cost effective way.


    Tune in as host Hanna Hasl-Kelchner welcomes digital marketing pro Steve Hamm who will help us make sense of the on-line landscape and prioritize what’s realistic for small and mid-size businesses to accomplish with their digital marketing dollars.


    Steve has a deep background in marketing and business development. He was a standout contributor from his early days in marketing and sales with $28B GlaxoSmithKline, having compiled a consistent record of personal achievement in developing growth strategies, revitalizing mature product lines, launching new products and generating increased sales and profits for his employers and clients.

    His education includes an MBA in Management and Marketing from Wake Forest University and a BS degree in Microbiology and Biochemistry from East Tennessee State University. He’s currently rolled up his achievements and experience as the owner of MaaS Pros Raleigh Durham, helping small to medium sized businesses "get found" online, convert visitors into qualified leads, and convert those leads into sales for your bottom line.
