Marketing is great, but sometimes you have to sell something.

If you are like me, you didn’t go into business to be a salesperson, that just happened along the way. So you could probably use a few simple sales tips, and this collection is just what you need.  Some of my favorite conversations with sales coaches and networking professionals.

about the show

It started as a conversation with friends. When someone would drop by Roundpeg, Lorraine would pull out her iPhone and record a bit of banter. From those first, informal interactions with local marketing professionals, authors, and entrepreneurs, More than a Few Words, a marketing podcast was born.

Over the last decade, we’ve experimented with lots of formats including 30-minute live episodes, complete with a call-in number and a real-time Twitter feed. There were half-baked marketing ideas, conversations with marketing celebrities, lots of laughs, and good information along the way.

Today, the ten-minute conversations are heard by business owners around the world looking for practical tips and a little bit of marketing inspiration.
