About The Marketing Agents

If you’re a small business owner or marketer looking to reach your ideal customer, you’ve come to the right place.

At this blog you’ll find expert interviews, easy to follow how-to articles, and success stories from people just like you.

The Marketing Agents is all about helping you find and engage your audience through social, search and mobile marketing.

Whether you’re just realizing that the world changed while you weren’t looking, or you’ve been using inbound marketing techniques for a while, you’ll find great, usable content on how to:

  • Build and engage an audience on any social media platform,
  • Rank higher at the search engines so your audience can find you, and
  • Use mobile marketing to be in front of your customer when they need you most.

This blog is written for small business owners by small business owners. I know what it’s like to have to balance marketing with writing proposals, making sales calls, managing co-workers, investing in new technologies and office chairs, cutting checks and making coffee.

I’ve been doing all that and taking out the garbage for over fifteen years!

It’s going to change your business forever.

About Rich Brooks

Hi. My name is Rich Brooks and I’m the founder and president of flyte new media, a web design and internet marketing company in Portland, Maine.

I’m a contributor to FastCompany.com and SocialMediaExaminer.com, one of the most popular social media sites today. I also run their Small Biz Networking Club, a popular forum for small business issues about social media.

After three years of running and selling out Social Media FTW, a social media conference in Maine, I started a new gig: The Agents of Change Digital Marketing Conference, an annual conference on search, social and mobile marketing. The event is both in person and online.

I’ve been interviewed by Inc. Magazine, CNN.com, The Huffington Post, and many other news sites, looking for insight into online marketing for small businesses.

I teach a Web Marketing and Social Media for Small Business class at the University of Southern Maine.

I’m also the “Tech Expert” on 207, an evening news program on WCSH and WLBZ, the NBC affiliates here in Maine.

I love sharing ideas and showing people how they can successfully market their business through social, search and mobile marketing, no matter how busy they are!
