Marketing has become a very competitive part of the business as there are just so many new and innovative ways the companies try to woo its target audience. Marketing is what decided the outreach of the firm and helps businesses get an edge over its competitors. If the firm does not emphasize on their marketing efforts, it would sooner or later show in the revenue as well. It is because people consume what they are marketed, and in most cases, the market trends are set by the effective marketing campaigns. So, if your product or brand does not have an effective marketing medium that connects your brand with your target audience, you can potentially lose your clients to your competitors, every single day.

Growth within the tech industry is predicated on putting yourself in the right situation ahead of everyone else.
That is why the work of Jason Hope, founder of SENS Foundation and renowned futurist, has become so important. Hope has been on the forefront of several tech innovations throughout his years in the industry and he is constantly pushing the envelope. Right now Hope is a steadfast believer in the Internet of Things — or simply put, the IoT. The Internet of Things is the tech concept that insists one day we will be completely interfaced with the world around us through the internet.
Take a look at Virgin Atlantic’s 787 Boeing airplane. This passenger plane is wired, each individual piece, to interface with computers in order to monitor for safety. The airplane is never NOT communicating with the internet, thus allowing everyone to stay safe at all times. The Internet of Things, as Hope insists, is already becoming more and more pervasive and in the best way possible. Airline companies are also utilizing the Internet of Things to make even their customers feel better on the ground. Baggage carrying, gate communication, and all levels of customer service are being made easier and more efficient thanks to the IoT.
If you haven’t heard of Jason Hope yet then you might want to start getting familiar. He is the founding executive of the innovative tech foundation, XPrize. He is also a successful entrepreneur with eyes always focused forward, like any good futurist would be.

Banking president and strategist, John Holt of NexBank Capital Inc, provided his unique insight during the 5th annual Texas Bankers’Association conference. Focused on strategic opportunities, mergers, and acquisitions, the conference was held in New Orleans, Lousiana. While the conference as a whole was a great success, Mr. Holt stood out among participants during the Banker Panel discussion on “Reinventing Community Banking: Perspectives on Competing by Innovation”.
As a tenured banking professional, Mr. Holt led discussions on the use of certain strategic principals while staying focused on the importance of innovation. Given this, Mr. Holt’s discussion on NexBank and their planned trajectory carried weight with fellow bank leaders.

In today’s society and world, it is always important for people to look out and watch themselves. They never know when someone might be trying to scam them or rip them off. It is sad to have to live like that, but there are too many stories of things going wrong or people being misled. That is why trust is such an important word in so many instances. With trust, people can relax and know they are in good hands. At one point, that trust was lost with Goettl Air Conditioning, and it looked like it would probably never return. Once it is lost, it can be extremely hard to regain it once again in the public eye.
However, if there ever were a person that could do it, it was Ken Goodrich. He has done it before, so he has the history to fall back on and he has the reputation. With Goettl Air Conditioning, this was a whole new ballgame for him. It was not something he had ever really dipped his toes in before. However, he knew it was something he had to pursue. Ken Goodrich is the kind of man that is very, very driven, even all these years later.
Now, when someone comes out from Goettl Air Conditioning, they know they are going to get the straight scoop and nothing less than that. They are going to get total and complete honesty about things such as maintenance, which is one of the many services they provide. For example, they are not going to do put in a whole new machine just to make money if a machine still has good life left in it. They will help the person keep up with it and make sure it is running smoothly at all times, so they never have to endure unbearable heat.

NuoDB is a memory centric, ACID compliant, elastic SQL transactional database management system. NuoDB has been used by companies such as Dassault Systèmes, Kodiak, Alfa Systems and UAE Exchange. NuoDB uses a distributed object architecture. The SQL databases can be scaled out by adding new servers. And by creating new servers, the database runs faster. This is much easier than having to replace or upgrade hardware. Many have referred to database style as NewSQL. By using a three-tier archetectural structure with administrative, transactional and storage tiers, NuoDB can work without loose coupling applications, and run cloud database based applications with encumbering them.
NuoDB divides data elements into software individual objects. These objects are referred to as “atoms.” These atoms are then stored in a database built around a cache. These in-memory caches support cloud elasticity without partitioning, sharding or compromising data objects. All data objects stored using NuoBD remain safe and secure, while still allowing the elasticity that comes with cloud databases.
You don’t have to be within the industry to know that Talk Fusion has become one of the biggest video communication firms on the internet. Talk Fusion was founded by CEO Bob Reina way back in 2007. Reina hadn’t been able to find a platform he believed in so that he could market his products via videos embedded in emails. So Reina did the thing that every entrepreneur should do: he created the service he needed. Now, ten years later Talk Fusion is a hit and they are being awarded for their hard work. Talk Fusion was recently awarded the Communications Solutions Products of the Year Award by the Technology Marketing Corporation.
Rich Tehrani is the CEO of Technology Marketing Corporation and he was the first person to give a shout out to the award winners. Tehrani stated, “It gives me great pleasure to honor the recipients of the 2016 Communications Solutions Products of the Year Award.” Tehrani went on to call Talk Fusion a true leader within the industry and a representative of the “best of the best products and solutions available on the market today.” Tehrani’s words weren’t empty, either, as they came at the behest of Talk Fusion’s coveted Video Chat application.
Talk Fusion received their award thanks to the hard work put forth on the Video Chat application. The Video Chat app was designed to interface multiple people from any mobile device in the world so that they can communicate via video. The Video Chat application can be acquired from the Google Play Store as well as iTunes and can be received completely for free. Not a bad price for something that can be seen as a game changer, right? Talk Fusion on Facebook.
Talk Fusion CEO Bob Reina isn’t one to let a chance to speak highly of his workers go by. Reina said, upon receiving the award, “This is just the beginning. Our talented IT team has big plans for the future.” Reina went on to praise how his team focuses on staying ahead of the curve and ahead of the competition. Looking at the results, we can’t argue with that.
In 1998, Dr. Clay Siegall founded the Seattle based biotech firm called Seattle Genetics. The firm’s focus is the creation of specific therapy drugs that target various diseases. They started out as a small startup company with just a few employees but are now a dominant company in the cancer research field.
Dr. Siegall believes that the old ways of the harsh chemotherapy drugs are going by the wayside. Instead he believes that targeted cancer treatments are the new and improved way to fight cancer because they are more tolerable and effective for patients.
In a recent interview, Dr. Siegall was asked a number of questions about his company. He was asked how he started and what inspired him to start his business. His answer started off simple by saying he was always interested in medicine. He said that the first time he really became interested in cancer research was when a family member got sick; he saw the brutal treatment regimen this family member went through and knew there had to be a better way.
Next he was asked a couple of questions about how his company makes money and how long it took for them to become profitable. In short, his answer was that it took ten years to become profitable; and that they make money by the drugs they sell, partnerships, and by licensing technologies.
Next, Dr. Siegall was asked how he got his first customer and what his marketing strategy is. Simply put his first sale was made by being a salesman. He said that their marketing is pretty simply in that they have dinner meetings that’s are spent negotiating.
Dr. Siegall is a strong leader and helped Seattle Genetics get multiple licenses with companies like Genentech, AbbVie, GlaxoSmithKline and Pfizer. These various licenses have brought in roughly $350 million dollars to date. He has also led the company to several capital-raising activities making them more than $1.2 billion through public and private financing.
Prior to starting Seattle Genetics Dr. Siegall worked with Bristol-Myers Squibb Pharmaceutical Research Institute, the National Cancer Institute, and the National Institutes of Health. He has won a number of awards that include: University of Maryland Alumnus of the Year for his work in Computer, Math and Natural Sciences; the Pacific Northwest Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the year. As if Dr. Siegall isn’t busy enough, he has also written and had published more than 70 articles and has 15 patents.
