On March 16, my guest will be Oguz Konar. Oguz is a serial entrepreneur, best-selling author, speaker, lead generation and marketing expert who started his first business at age 7 selling water in the flea markets in his local town. After witnessing his father’s small business fall apart due to financial and marketing illiteracy, right after September 11, he decided to take action and learn the secrets of sales and marketing to keep other small business owners from making the same mistakes. He’s the author of two best-selling books on Online Marketing and Marketing Automation. Oguz is the founder of four different companies that he’s currently running and he spends most of his time consulting his clients on implementing effective, productive and no-nonsense marketing strategies to maximize their income in the shortest amount of time. He’s in love with automating lead generation and sales process, so the business owners can focus on what they do best instead of worrying about where the next sale will be coming from. Besides his best-selling books, Oguz received many awards and accolades and has been featured on numerous publications and major media channels for his time-tested and results driven marketing strategies. He has generated more than $4 million for his clients and has been coaching both small mom and pop businesses, as well as multi=mullion dollar corporation on business development and marketing automation.
