    Renee, Once again the ivory tower meets the real world and the approach taught loses. I've never understood why professors look down their noses at the people that make a living by their wits not tenure. One of my ongoing consulting treats is when a client "gets it" and their presentation deck is minimal, primarily graphics and limited words. The information in written form does not have to be the same as the pitch. It can and should include more information but should still hone to your points. Excellent advice.

    #4 My short attention span never afforded me either the discipline or the desire to sit through anything long and tedious. I'm a "just the facts, ma'am" kind of gal. You may have a point about bulk being a hangover of our life in school. I once had a moron on an English prof who actually told us that if we didn't pad our bibliography we would fail. He seemed to think the sign of a good researcher was his or her ability to write bullshit.

    The worst presentations (essentially pitches) I've ever been involved in revolved around people believing "they got it all in there." I'd read their work, wondering why they thought giving clients back their own information was so important. One woman said to me, "Clients like bulk." She eventually headed up the agency and nearly destroyed it. As much as what you say is true, @Renée 🐝 Cormier, people seek protection in "bulk." I remember my students telling me about another teacher at the college asking for huge amounts of information in their presentations. Colleges are full of these teachers and it goes from there. Bulk baffles brains. Thanks for your post. Thanks for the brevity.

    #6 True, @Gert Scholtz. I think my core point is that there is no way to spend the governments tax dollars without matching them two or three to one with your own money — even if marketing or any other expense involved is, in fact, a legitimate tax dedeuction. Cheers!
    Gert Scholtz
    11/11/2017 #6 Gert Scholtz
    @Phil Friedman Your analysis is spot-on, Phil. Spending to save tax is only effective to the extent of the applicable tax rate, and to the extent the expenditure is tax deductible (in this case 25%). The remaining 75% hits the bottom line - at least initially as the extra marketing outlay may have benefits that increase profits. But this would be difficult to correlate with exactitude if the marketing spend is eg, advertising or promotional gifts (not that these don’t have value). I would think that if one applies the extra marketing expenditure in the form of cash benefits/future discounts/coupons as incentive for actual purchases (provided such benefits per product is less than the mark-up per product), then the correlation between additional marketing spend and additional profit would be direct and measurable.

    #3 The short answer, Charlene, is yes, I am going to talk about that in my upcoming eBook on starting and operating a small business. In the meantime, here is a preview.

    Always keep in mind that advice is rarely if ever worth more than you pay for it. Often it is not worth what you pay for it, but almost never the other way around. I know that opinion runs counter to the Social Media ethos that touts a faith in open sharing and mutual help. Well, my experience is that Social Media is a land of virtual (mostly made up) reality, where users constantly create BS personas, backgrounds, qualifications, and purported skills. Not everyone, to be sure. Still, too many not to start out with a healthy dose of skepticism when you are seeking and/or hiring help and counsel. So, what to do?

    Do not accept self-acriptions at face value. Instead, look for letters of recommendation (not endorsements in the LInkedIn sense, which are almost all pure BS) from industry professionals and former clients who are demonstrably real and reachable for confirmation. As well, Google the person involved. If he or she has been in business for any significant period of time, there should be entries returned on a net search that confirm this. And insist on a Skype or other tele-conference, in which you can see and assess someone's facial and body language and see how they respond and explain things extemporaneously. There are never any guarantees, but these steps will eliminate all but the most adept con men. And never, ever pay more than a month or two retainer out front. Sure you can lose that, but at least in such case your damages are contained.

    Come to think of it, this is good advice for all contracting situations. Cheers!

    @Phil Friedman thanks for the heads up. I cheerfully passed along your great advice to my peeps. The bigger issue that struck me last night when I read this, and I still don't have an answer this morning is 'advice on the social media' . This is NOT about digital marketers. This is about free speech parading about as real truth. And I am frankly dumbfounded as to how to combat lies and misinformation without getting into a rant, without being seen as irrational, without being viewed as obscure. In the old days, one never bashed the competition because it was unseemly or ungentlemanly. However, I am finding it difficult lately to enter any discourse and keep it neutral and on track with real honest to god factoids. I fear I have to keep pulling out my phone or call people out on their data to prove to me they are right. And in the process am developing a reputation as a pain in the ass for not letting stupid opinions stand. Serious question. Any plans on addressing the "be careful where you get your information from' in your upcoming ebook?

    Phil, couldn't agree more. One of my clients is, I believe, the top management consultant and coach in the Pacific Northwest. In his book on Succession he said, " Do not manage your business to minimize taxes. Manage it to optimize profits. Buyers want businesses with a record of growth. That way they believe they are getting a going concern and you will get a higher multiple."
