Hey everybody! My name is Max Zaron, and I am really excited to be blogging on SpecialDatabases.com. I’ve got so much to share with you in terms of advertising and sales and marketing strategies designed to drive your business into the stratosphere. I’m an expert in business branding and sales force motivation, but before I get carried away and my inner “marketing manager” takes over, let me tell you a little bit about myself.
I really am a Marketing Manager, and I have been in the marketing industry for over a decade. I graduated with my Bachelor’s Degree in Marketing in 2000, but being the glutton for punishment that I am, my bachelor’s wasn’t enough, so I immediately dove into my Master’s studies. I earned that, too, moved to New York City, and quickly began my career. I am currently working with SpecialDatabases.com, sharing my advertising and business expertise.
Although I live in the Big Apple and truly love it, I’m a Boston boy at heart. I was born in Boston in 1979, and I have two younger siblings. Being the oldest had its advantages. I learned to take charge at an early age, and I learned the importance of setting a good example. Both of these qualities really help in advertising and sales and marketing, and I have embraced my “take charge” mentality and used it to help my clients throughout my career.
Another quality I learned in my youth was the value of creative thinking. My dad was an entrepreneur in the promotional product industry, and he taught me to always think outside of the box. It is no wonder I have found myself in marketing, as I was always surrounded by marketing, and I learned how to best utilize it at an early age. And for the record, creative thinking comes in very handy when you live in New York City, yet remain a BoSox fan – you can take the boy out of Boston, but you can’t take the Boston out of the boy!
Even though I remain a Boston Red Sox fan, I have completely embraced New York City, and I love living here. NYC is definitely the most remarkable city in the world, and you want for nothing… except maybe some space! No matter the food, sport, or entertainment, you’ll find it in New York City, and it’ll be bigger and better than anywhere else. My wife, Rebecca, and my daughter, Addison, truly love it here; so much so, my wife and I plan to retire in NYC… and still root for the Sox!
As you can probably tell, marketing is my passion, but I’m not an all-work-no-play kind of guy. During my “me” time, I enjoy sports, such as pretending to be my favorite Red Sox and playing baseball or taking a run through Central Park. I also craft my own beer – of course I do, I’m from Boston! – and it’s pretty darn good if I do say so myself!
So, that’s pretty much all there is to say about me, except that I truly am looking forward to blogging and passing on all I know about advertising and sales and marketing to you. Our goal here at SpecialDatabases.com is to provide you with the best tools possible to engage and empower your sales force. Now, please comment and tell me about yourself. I look forward to “meeting” you all!
