Quote, attributable to Brian Halligan, CEO and Founder, HubSpot

"Many small businesses miss out on the opportunities that smart Internet marketing affords them because they either don't know what they should be doing or they don't have the time and skill to do it themselves. In OMG's place, Dave was ahead of the game when he started to blog, but he needed a little help to promote it in an effective way and use it to generate sales leads. The results that he's seen are a good indicator for what other companies can realize if they embrace inbound Internet marketing."

Quote, attributable to Dave Kurlan, CEO, Objective Management Group

"When I started my blog, I really viewed it as an outlet for my thoughts. Being a fan of baseball, you could say my theory was 'build it and they will come.' But the marketer in me knew there were things I should do to promote it or at least make sure people who would be interested in what I have to say would come across it. The results more than speak for themselves."

"We rely on resellers to help us generate business and the Internet is one of the best places to recruit new resellers. We want to make sure that people in the business know who we are and respect what we do. Increasing our profile, whether it be through the blog or getting better rankings for our main website on words that matter for us, is a really important way to continue to grow our business."
