Owner & Chief Thank You Economist at Relational Equity
Van Baird is a small business entrepreneur that loves helping other entrepreneurâ€™s. Heâ€™s been in the Financial Services world since 1999 with companies like Northwestern Mutual and State Farm. After dumping “traditional” marketing efforts in his State Farm office for 100% Social Media and referral driven marketing, his revenue increased 60% and his closing ratio went from 25% to 80%.
Based on that success, while maintaining his State Farm office, he created Relational Equity. Believing that advocacy for your clients is the ultimate form of engagement online, they teach small businessâ€™ and churches how to leverage what their people are posting online in order to drive retention at a relational level. Their companyâ€™s clients include Leadercast, Hive Atlanta, Connexus Church, Keller Williams Realtors and the SoCon14 Social Media Conference. Find Van at http://relatioanleq.com.
