Gail is one of the best.”

“Running a business – especially a small business – is demanding work, and marketing is just one piece of the puzzle,” said Goodman. “The good news is that there are a variety of strategies that businesses can use to reach new customers, keep them engaged, and drive repeat visits– and it’s not hard or time consuming.  I am excited to help the attendees of this year’s Nightclub & Bar Convention and Trade Show understand how to build the powerful customer relationships that will lead to their success.”
Goodman’s keynote, founded on principles she employs every day in her work at Constant Contact, will provide a framework for Engagement Marketing and showcase the advantages in building long-term relationships with customers and creating brand advocates to drive business success. Attendees will learn how Engagement Marketing can become the single most valuable source of new customers for their business. Goodman’s lesson will emphasize the need for great experiences through both in-person and online interactions to make people feel connected. Delivering these experiences and making these connections can then inspire customer endorsements through social media, such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, giving businesses maximum marketing potential.
