Your place for community & resources to find or create work you love

We are so glad you're here and ready to take the next step! We created 48days.net as a place for community. For people to encourage each other and help each other in finding or creating work that is meaningful.

But frankly, we've outgrown it, so we're moving to provide you new resources.

48Days.net will be closing as it is today on November 30, 2017. Until then current members can click the button below to access groups and resources.

If you're new to 48days.net, connect here for a close up look at our thriving 48 Days Eagles Community and to get weekly free resources and motivation as you find and create work you love.

Unfortunately, the replay from 12/2/14 had some technical difficulties so the replay is NOT available, however, Tom will be giving a FREE webinar on 12/9/14 that will cover much of the info he and Dan covered. For info on Tom's webinar, please go to: http://inboundmovement.com/48days

11/18/14 Dan interviewed Tom Schwab: Topic is INBOUND Marketing: What it means to businesses like your's and 48 Days.

Here are some of the highlights covered in the session this week, however, we would encourage you to join Tom's webinar for discussion highlights:

  • Interruption marketing doesn't work today.
  • Building trust is key to building our client base.
  • Inbound marketing focuses on serving.
  • Knowing who your ideal customer is crucial to building your business. Also recognizing your ideal client's wants, needs, fears, etc. are helpful in understanding how to serve your customers best.
  • When we try to appeal to everyone with our content, we appeal to no one. Surveys is a great way to gather what content your audience wants.
  • Guest posting, commenting on blogs, and engaging people is a great way to add value versus just trying to sell people.
  • The best way to sell is not to sell, but to be trustworthy.
  • Your true expert in your business is your customer - they will tell you want they want, how much they will to pay for a product, etc. 
Tom's life makes more sense looking backwards as the pieces fit together to explain where he is now.
Growing up in the suburbs of Chicago he hadn't been east of Indiana or west of Iowa until he attended the US Naval Academy.
Once at Annapolis his life changed quickly. The Navy took him around the world running nuclear power plants on Aircraft Carriers
When "peace broke out" with the fall of the Berlin Wall, Tom entered the corporate world for a Fortune 500 medical device company. Rising through the ranks he worked in Engineering, Operations, Distribution, Sales and Sales Management. His last job was managing the State of Michigan for the company.
A decade years ago he started his own distributorship and went into ecommerce in 2010.
Tom's company, Goodbye Crutches was one of the first eCommerce companies to use Inbound Marketing. It took them from a regional player to a national leader in under 3 years.  
Tom now helps other businesses attract, engage and delight customers with a clear strategy on how to use the web. You can see him daily on the Inbound Movement where he features a new company and provides expert advice on how they can use an Inbound Strategy.
