Q: What’s your favorite part of being a CMO? A: Since PostcardMania (PCM) founder and CEO, Joy Gendusa, brought me on in 2004, it’s always been a delight to serve PostcardMania’s central purpose: helping small business owners grow their companies. It’s been enjoyable solving the marketing puzzle for different industries. We started off primarily serving real estate; these guys contributed to almost half of all revenue. When the housing bubble burst in 2008, PostcardMania really had to grow and pivot our focus to helping everyone we could with direct mail. I helped Joy dive into our available data to see how much...

Peppercomm PR: A Profile

Humor is a HUGE Strategic Differentiator Tell me a bit about Peppercomm’s founding. I need to know where the “Pepper” part came from!

I decided that I had it with big agency life, foolishly thought I was just as... Read More >
