• Tampa Bay Innovation Center Hosts March TECH Talk Program

    Marketing and Selling Expert Ron Stein Will Discuss a Powerful Way Businesses Can Gain a Competitive Advantage 

    ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. – (Feb. 24, 2017) –Tampa Bay Innovation Center, an innovation and entrepreneurship center, will hold its March TECH Talk program on Tuesday, March 14, at 8:30 a.m. at Microsoft Headquarters offices, 5426 Bay Center Dr., Suite 700, Tampa.

                The March program, “How to Get People to Buy from You Instead of Your Competition,” will be presented by Ron Stein, founder of More Customers Academy and president of FastPath Marketing.  Stein says that prospective buyers are asking, “Why should I choose you over your competition?”  If competitors seem to get all the buzz and close more deals, then it’s time to change marketing and sales techniques – online and offline. His TECH Talk presentation will offer practical strategies, tactics and examples to empower a team with a new way of marketing and selling that cuts across everything the business does, to help the company become the obvious choice in the market.

    In his work, Stein pulls back the curtain to show exactly how he has created targeted messaging, content and selling strategies that have delivered more than $300 million in revenue in his career and raised $10 million in venture backing for a wireless technology company. He also writes a popular column on selling and marketing in Florida Trend magazine and is one of the most-read features with more than 45,000 subscribers. He is also a mentor at Tampa Bay Innovation Center.
