  1. Get Customers
  2. Keep and

Here’s why you will never see an advertisement on Marketing Made Simple TV. YouTube offers monetization – run an ad and you make a bit. But the video ads have nothing to do with Marketing Made Simple TV and merely take away from the show, so we turn Monetization off. Using it is unfair to guests, sponsors and viewers.

The show also has awesome supporters like Jeffrey Hayzlett and Ted Rubin. Between those two men, they have about 150,000 Twitter followers!
