    Market Hacking with Rosh Sillars

    in Marketing

    Friend of OTDL Rosh Sillars comes to visit on to discuss the tools and techniques of Market Hacking for business.


    Market Hacking is a process to develop new markets for established businesses using creativity, digital marketing techniques and analysis. The process is derived from a method commonly referred to as Growth Hacking, which many startup companies, including Uber, Airbnb and Dropbox, successfully use to grow their business quickly. Market Hacking offers business owners the opportunity to bring new life and growth to their company.


    Join Rosh  for a two-hour seminar devoted specifically to Market Hacking. This information-packed event is held on Thursday, February 11, 2016, from 9:00 am until 11:00 am at the Troy Chamber of Commerce Classroom - 2255 Buttersfield,  (Just off Big Beaver Road, located Behind Maggiano's Little Italy),  Troy, MI 48084.  Admission is $25. Early Bird Registrants may save 20% of the cost. For additional details and to register for the event: http://mh.rosh.com.

    All About Iowa. Do you want the Iowa Caucuses to determine which presidential candidates are 'viable'? In a state of slightly more than three million people, party leaders expect one hundred fifty thousand to show up to caucus, slightly more than in the 2012 cycle. Over the last year Iowans have been sliced and diced by pollsters, pundits, political psychologists, and sociologists. Anyone who attends political events - and there have been hundreds of them since last year - will see famous candidates, film stars, and national TV stars. It's a spectacle, a circus, and a show being put on for one state. As the hours are counting down to the caucus Monday, February 1st, the Bob Davis Podcasts attends a Marco Rubio rally. One side of the room is reserved for the stage, the other for media. In between, are the Iowans, ready to comment when reporters approach them. Of course reporters will approach, like fish feeding at the water's surface. 'Who will you caucus for?', 'What do you think of Donald Trump?'. The answers to these and many other scintillating questions will be filed, dissected, and added to the national story line. All About Iowa. Fasten your seat belts. A rural backwater, albiet a very nice one with very nice people, is about to decide which candidates are the most viable. At least that's how they see this process. After Monday's caucus, the story lines will change, predictions will be adjusted, and some campaigns will never recover. Is this how we want to elect a president? While there is much to celebrate in the American political system, as I attend events and cover the caucus and the events leading up to it, what comes through louder and clearer is the dark and potentially dangerous relationship between big government, big media, politicians, pollsters and the population of a single state that has insinuated itself into the political process in an unprecedented way. All about Iowa? Indeed. Sponsored by X Government Cars and Ryan Plumbing and Heating of

    Rolling The Dice In Iowa. This was a day in which Donald Trump pulled out of the 'sanctioned' Republican debate. Des Moines was beset with a plague of TV trucks, politicians and rallies. Drake hosted two of these events, and after The Bob Davis Podcasts were denied media credentials for the 'sanctioned' Republican debate, we took to waiting in line for our tickets like everyone else. Rand Paul's event at Drake was smaller - no lines snaking around the block - but no less enthusiastic. Paul appeared, and spoke for about 25 minutes about liberty, freedom and The Bill of Rights, saying ideas bring people together, and the concept of freedom seems to be very effective in this effort. Aly Eichman, volunteering for Paul joins the podcasts to talk about Paul's impressive precinct organizing effort, which has netted the Senator as many as one thousand precinct chairs statewide. Remember the Iowa PRECINCT Caucuses? Will that kind of organizing make a difference? Then there's Donald Trump who made sure thousands of people had tickets to an event in an auditorium that accommodates somewhere around 750 to 800. Was it a brilliant move? Will it mean Trump will win Iowa? Standing in line for two hours with Iowans was an eye opener, as well as a hand and feet freezer. Many of the people waiting to see Trump don't plan to caucus for him. It seems they just want to see Trump, like they might come to see Justin Bieber. Here again, we'll see. The more time spent here, the more one concludes this really is rolling The Tumbling Dice. Sponsored by Ryan Plumbing and Heating of Saint Paul and X Government Cars!

    How to Discover Your Talents

    in Business

    A young man in one of my seminars came up to me and said that he was working as a plumber for a large contracting firm. He made good money, but he was envious of the salespeople in his company who made more money, drove nicer cars, wore nicer clothes, and had much better lifestyles.


    He had completed his training, had his journeyman’s certificate, and was at the top of his wage scale. The only way he could earn more money in his current job was by working longer hours. Instead, he wanted to get into sales


    I told him that if he wanted to get into sales, it was up to him to learn how to sell — and then to do everything possible to get his boss to give him the chance to sell the company’s plumbing services. His future was up to him. But he first had to learn how to do the new and higher-paying job.


    A little more than a year later, he attended another one of my seminars… and brought me up to date on his situation.


    He had told his boss that he wanted to get into sales. His boss discouraged him, telling him that plumbers have very little aptitude for the skills involved in selling a service. He then asked his boss what he would have to do to prove to him that he could do it. To make a long story short, his boss helped him learn how to sell the company’s services by recommending that he study manuals and take extra courses on his own time.
