ME Network Ep 44: Scott Salkin of Allbound Explains Everything About Channel Marketing

Meet Scott Salkin of Allbound, an experimentalist switching from an agency to a software company.

You can say Scott has been around the marketing block, from an agency owner to a start-up software founder who recently acquired funding.

Allbound is right in our Silicon Desert backyard, so we invited him over to LeadMD Central to chat.

Allbound originally started as an agency before switching to a software company less than a year ago after everyone and their moms were sitting in a coffee shop trying to develop agencies of their own.

Salkin also drops facts and other key takeaways regarding channel marketing, an area that doesn’t always get the spotlight it deserves.

Things are never as hard as they seem. Scott gives some easy and helpful suggestions.

You always, always need to learn and pickup new techniques,” he said, “things are always changing and it’s important to adapt. Disrupt normalcy. Change the status quo! Break the expression, “I’ve always done it that way.”

To Scott, that’s a recipe for failure.

Scott gives some quick and concise points on four key areas:

Content Focus on the content. Who is being marketed to? Is it reaching them effectively?

Collaboration The team needs to work together. Everyone should be on the same page.

Customer The customer is sometimes forgotten after the transaction. It’s important to follow up.

Culture. The above C’s need to be synthesized together to form a cohesive community. Putting them into effect produces a culture of success.

According to Scott, even the most advanced tech is useless if not taught properly or personalized for the user.
