Dustin is the CEO and Founder of HIVE Digital Strategy and BUZZ On Demand Marketing. He leads engaging and educational sessions and keynotes focused on digital marketing, marketing strategy, inbound marketing, and entrepreneurship.
His mission is to educate and support small and medium sized business growth through solid strategy and execution with their online marketing. He believes that there is a lot of misinformation in the world today that leads marketing professionals and business owners down the wrong path when it comes to their marketing and sales initiatives.
"We can do better - better for our companies, our families, and especially better for our prospects and customers."
Personally, Dustin is engaged to be married in August 2020 (hooray for pandemic weddings!), a dog dad to Arrow (a boxer-pitbull mix) and Kobe (a miniature pincher), and was a semi-professional football player for 10 years in the Colorado Football Conference making the All-Star team three times.
The way that we think about website design and development is broken. We build websites to the preferences of the business leaders and/or the website developer - instead of our customers. On top of that, the typical website project ends up being three weeks late and far over budget. Through this talk attendees will learn:
Digital marketing sales aren't won by accident. All the sales power has shifted to the consumer because they can do their own research online. In fact, 57% of the sales process is complete before the average consumer reaches out to a company. In order to reach the right prospects at the right time through the right medium, you need a strategy. Through this talk attendees will learn:
Consumers don't need sales pitches. They get it - you have a product or service for sale that you want them to buy. That doesn't move the needle for them. And it is no longer about having a better widget or customer service. The companies that win do so through educating their prospects and customers. They hold nothing back, pull back the curtain, and are completely transparent in their processes and knowledge. Through this talk attendees will learn:
There are a lot of questions, misconceptions, and myths out there about digital marketing, marketing strategy, website development, advertising, content marketing, and more. With over 15 years of experience developing winning strategies through all of these tactics, Dustin is an open book willing to lend his expertise and experience to support your digital strategy questions. Dustin doesn't believe in holding back secrets or tips that have worked in the past for clients and his own businesses. Ask anything, he'll answer.
