Your service business deserves* efficiency in business operations and marketing, I welcome the opportunity to hear your sales & marketing challenges or inefficiencies [mannyo_linkedin(at)]*.* Specifically, I welcome tech b2b/b2c service businesses who want someone to take a look at their service business and bounce ideas. Thanks
B2B or B2C or B2G service business is demanding. It’s more demanding and stressful when you don’t have all the resources you need to do a great job all the time. 

“**Service consist of enormous pressure, deadlines, budget, focus, people, skills, expectations, complaints, safety, risk, legal, quality and sustainability. Probably, a lot much more** bunch of s#%^ .**”**
With all that said, service comes down to efficient management, specifically process-work flow management. Today you and I, will take on process-work-flow inefficiencies and hopefully improve your service business.
For further help. reach out to myself and see what ways I could add more value.


Every business struggles with inefficiencies and workflow inefficiencies. And the painful part is that the perfect workflow will not necessarily guarantee success. It could help.
It’s like having to drink water from a giant bowl without using a cup, your hands and simply use your tongue. Yeah, that recommended eight cups a day is going to take forever.
Inefficiencies is like preparing for your business pitch for a one million dollar seed by waiting the day before. Add to that, then realizing on the day you pitched a VC that couldn’t give a monkey’s ass about your mining gold on Mars ideas.
“**Improving workflow efficiencies will help your team complete more work in less time and standardize how the work is performed, hopefully.** "
Make sure to read ebook, “20 Ways To Eliminate Your B2B B2C Service Business Marketing Inefficiencies”, we covered an overview now we focused it.


Some people say workflow and processes are the same and some argue they are two different things. It is sort of like sales process & sales methodology. I think process is more general explanation of what needs to be done. Workflow is more specific on how the job will get done. In conversation the two could be used loosely.

Process: The process map describes the who, what, where, when and how a project moves along each point within the company, with clearly defined roles, responsibilities, time-lines and accountabilities.
Workflow: The workflow for the project demonstrates how the work “flows” or moves through the project, through different departemetns, or through everything.

Basic Consideration Before & After Creation of Workflows

*If anyone or a reader has complied a tone of business best practice workflows, please give me a shout.* (Also read and pickup the eBook version below)

20 Ways To Eliminate Your Service Business Marketing Inefficiencies - Sponsored By BJ Mannyst

Using Intent Analysis, Quality Traffic, Quality Work-flow, Quality Leads, Quality Delivery

Your service business deserves efficiency in business operations and marketing, I welcome the opportunity to hear your sales & marketing challenges or inefficiencies [mannyo_linkedin(at)]. Specifically, I welcome tech b2b/b2c service businesses who want someone to take a look at their service business and bounce ideas. Thanks

Marketing inefficiencies is like sex with a pillow when two beautiful consensual women are ready to rock-your-world. Marketing inefficiency is doing Facebook ads, LinkedIn ads, Google ads and thinking that’s all the marketing you need. Marketing inefficiencies is following the crowd instead of figuring out what works best for your organization and customers.

Let me share a brief story about a small and growing commercial service organization, doing $5 Million of revenue a year for the past decade, that simply failed to adapt their marketing. 

In the past, most of their business leads came from trade-shows, cold-calling, b2b door-to-door, the occasional flyer on cars tactics, etc. They’ve always seem to do random bunch of things and gotten leads as if it were a miracle. Today, that is not the case, due to the growing competition, review sites, lack-of-differentiation, technology, social change, and lack of modern expertise they are no longer operating.
They have neglected to evolve their processes because they got complacent. They thought things would never change therefore they could keep doing the same things. The take away is that social & economic change is always happening on a micro-macro level and it is important to keep evolving or you will slowly go extinct.

I bet you do know of a business today that does email marketing, content marketing, search engine marketing, video marketing, mobile marketing, event marketing, etc to get to quality-ready-to-buy leads or in some cases stay engage with their customers?
I believe there’s a high chance you said yes!

Do you know that most businesses still struggle with marketing even if they constantly measure, monitor, and adjust?

Do you also know that not many have automated their marketing effort, or adopted agile marketing, machine learning, analytic, data-driven marketing, predictive marketing?

One thing I want to tell you, apart from the subject matter, is that there are many technology tools like machine learning, AI, image recognition, personalization, that will offer, in my opinion, short-term efficient benefit to the early-mid adopters.

The root cause of marketing inefficiencies sometimes is not tools like social media or email, it is likely failure to address fundamentals.So let’s attack marketing inefficiencies however be prepared to handle new inefficiencies.

There are fundamental reasons so many service-based businesses try traditional and digital marketing only to experience little to no success, and state marketing or advertising “is a waste.”  What some of you and businesses don’t realize is that not only does ROI takes the right: time,money, and effort. It also takes getting the whole marketing mix, marketing strategy, workflow, messages, IT systems, target, lead generation processes, traffic, problem, etc right

Marketing Automation 101: For The Not Too Tech Professionals, Freelancer, Construction Services, SMB - Sponsored BJ Mannyst

For a moment you might be thinking hasn’t someone or a company like SalesForce / Marketo/ Hubspot/ Oracle / etc. covered this topic before? Or Why would you want to read this content instead of googling all day long for educational material? My unconventional side would say, "I don’t write and educate like everyone". And my conventional side would say, because I’m not overly educated and exposed to this subject, I can provide a fresh and simpler view for people not too tech literate. And because setting up and maintaining automation systems should not be taking lightly if you value your bottom line.

I present these information due to the fact the world, organizations, founders need ways to analyze which approaches help them acquire opportunities and which ones are just a waste. Also helping anyone to maintain the relationships they already have.

Like many of you, you may have delayed full scale marketing automation or delayed exploring the new ways of doing business because you weren’t ready or because it involve a lot of headaches.

The reality today is that without some form of marketing automation you are just leaving your business future success to chance or to unproven processes. Just hoping your marketing and your sales will hit home runs when you stepup to bat is just childs talk, all fantasy.

How To Use Killer Keywords to Boost Sales - Leads -Engagement - Sponsored BJ Mannyst

If you have written content, sent email, wrote descriptions, created headings, titles, or even spoken at an event, you might have forgotten the benefit of using the right words. Steve Jobs could be speaking to a room full of general consumers, I’m sure there are some words he would avoid saying so that he would not  scare people from buying goods and some words that will reassure people they are making a good decision.

The thing about modern consumers is that they **scan more often than they read things** thoroughly. They will scan the back of a book, a can of  beans, magazines, articles, packaging, ad, landing page, instructional manual, even legal agreement when they are about to use Facebook or other services.

**The point is the right words that grabs their attention will either get them to consider you over the competitions. And the wrong words will just not appeal to some. For example, the words “fast-sport-car” suggest a little bit of thrill while a words like, safe-reliable-sports-utility-vehicle suggest good for families and quality conscious consumers.**

So in the world of content marketing, email marketing, social media, SEO, press release and pretty much any medium you can shape the opinion and thoughts of someone else.

It is important to have a keyword game plan (PLEASE USE FOR GOOD).

**IMPORTANT NOTE**: Anyone who might consider applying the insights in this content / ebook should realize that there is an art and science to this. You may have to consider culture, age group, city, current events, meanings, confusions, sensitivity, educational level, religions, experiences, etc.. So please get help from people who know marketing, content, dealing with your target audience. This content is made possible by the kind support of BJ MANNYST & FOUNDERS UNDER 40 GROUP

And FYI, both have no desire  to support groups that promote hate. We just played with the words. ENJOY!

Learn To Generate More Leads & Focus Your Lead Generation Effort For Service Businesses - Sponsored BJ Mannyst

I will bet you that in an organization of thousands of employees, majority of employees will be indifferent to how their company generates the leads that then convert to paying clients which then pays their salaries.
I say this because the people that have to hunt for sales are facing more stress, pressure, change, and urgency to deliver the results. It’s even several times harder if you are a freelancer, small business owner, solopreneur, mompreneur, independent rep, professional service provider.

So I, Manny, and the BJ Mannyst team (marketing service provider) thought lets just put together a really simple lead generating ideas for service providers.

We also realized that the more simple it is the likelihood it would create more competition in the marketplace. Clearly, it’s still a mysterious mapping procedure to precisely know what factors lead to quality leads.
Maybe the A.I, Machine Learning, Marketing Automation can help get to more gold treasure chests instead of the still unpredictable outcome situations.

Quick Tip: If any or all of the following sucks in your lead generating effort, get help immediately: content marketing, copy-writing, ads, website, apps, email marketing, call-to-action, A/B testing, branding, images, strategy, company name, product name, service proposition, market size, events, sponsorship, landing pages, lead process, service delivery, moral-compass, forms, database, crm etc

Quick Reality: See the thing also is that B2B, B2C, B2G, etc. world is filled with numerous choices. There are thousands of flavors for MarTech, FinTech, CRM, ERP, CMP, Cyber Security, HRTech, SocialTech, Graphic Designers, Photo Editing, Video Editing, Data Management, Hosting, Events, Apps, SaaS, PaaS, Cloud, Social Media providers, hair-stylist, restaurants,etc that decision making has become a game of finding “Mr. Right”. No business wants to get it wrong. No consumer wants to get it wrong.

Quick Thought: Maybe the future way to, unfortunately, beat out the competition is by purchasing more access or purchasing more competitive advantages. I know for sure the simple tips listed below would be helpful however the smart money is saying if I tip the beautiful waitress prior to my ordering I may be able to guarantee a great experience for myself and my clients. If I help enough people achieve their goals, I will achieve my business goals. If I buy the Washington Post, I can promote my best selling goods, cloud services, spaceship, and Prime membership far cheaper over time than my competitors.

Our Milkshake Brings All The Founders & And Tips For Getting More From Our Milkshake – Sponsored GreatestFounders™

There’s a lot of milkshake happening around the world,…everyone loves milkshakes. As many have noticed, most founders don’t just want any milkshake.

How Founders Can Create Alliances and Belong to Communities - sponsored Founders Under 40™ Group + BJ Mannyst

Amazon, Berkshire Hathaway, and JPMorgan Chase announced a new alliance in early 2018. In the last two years the formation of alliances has grown. The need and demand for forming alliances and being a part of a business / founders community is becoming a norm. Everywhere you go you will notice how technology, politics, money, environmental, culture, communities,values, gender, ideology are just disrupting everything at a much rapid pace. And the reality for many founders and business managers is that it gets tougher to hold your ground, maintain relationships, find better contacts, etc while continuing to build healthy traction for yourself, your family, your team, and your business. 

The solution, I have come to realize, is the strong need to form good alliances and be in the right communities.

I, BJ Mannyst (marketing services) team + Founders Under 40™ Group (unconventional founders community) have put this invaluable resource together to quickly help start-ups, founders, freelancers, professional service providers, small medium businesses, etc quickly identify, associate, belong, and form lasting healthy alliances.

Sell & Market Better Founders With 25+ Strategies and Insights For 2020 & Industry4.0 eBook - Sponsored by BJ Mannyst + Founders Under 40™ Group

Usually times like these, end of years, are a great time to reflect and do better in the future. I’m betting everyone and every business wants to sell better in 2019 , 2020 and forever. So I, Founders Under 40 Group team, BJ Mannyst team took sometime to assess what is working, what to keep doing, and what to start experimenting with to help stay competitive.

But I also,note, that i'm fearful that most modest businesses will not have the next generation expertise like expertise in industrial 4.0 to stay competitive. I do fear if you or your freelancer biz / gig biz/ smb business are not highly tech savvy and educated in tech there’s a chance growth might stall for many.

In the near future, there will be solutions providers like Amazons Web Services, Google, Microsoft, etc who are going to dominate more IAAS (Infrastructure As A Service), PAAS(Platform As A Service) but what then happens in five years is that the advance-profitable-tech businesses become more lucrative for a few and less tech/ old tech businesses get turned into commodities. Just as companies like Uber have commodity-fy car transportation.

In the end what I’m saying is to take the time today to see what functions of your business  is essential, which once are true competitive advantages and what parts can you delegated, what can be evolved because industrial 4.0 evolution is going to happen. In the mean time here are my thoughts, other people's thoughts and tips for selling and marketing better 2020 and forever.

What Founders Can Take From Dolce & Gabbana Founders, Branding, Society, & Racism

The reality is not many consumers care what their favorite brand stands for or what it’s founders say or are involve in. The founder of a real estate empire can be womanizer and a slave driver - - - And yet most consumers can separate the founder from the product. And there are always going to be some who will not stand for it. The example that comes to mind is Tiger Woods and the numerous women he had consensual sex with while married. No harm done but some companies pull their sponsorship dollars.

So the current situation with Dolce & Gabbana founders is another example how values and money conflicts in reality. As a person who markets, helps manage a fast growing founders community, and assist founders, I wanted to help myself and fellow founders learn from Dolce Gabbana founders.

Hey VCs Are Employees Who Have No Dreams of Their Own Better for Startups and Their Founders? - - -sponsored by GreatestFounders™

Original Title: Should startup founders look for employees who have no dreams of their own?

[Hello VCs, Founders, Employees, and Angels. I recently came across this content which was originally written by a different author. If anyone is interested in sharing their thoughts about the idea of profiling the ideal employees for startups, that would be awesome. P.S. Just sharing the article not sure who wrote it. ] - Manny of Founders Under 40 Group (

Many founders lament the struggles of finding and retaining staff that are just as passionate and committed to the startup as they are. In fact, losing a foundational employee is often perceived as betrayal – an understandable reaction when you consider the arduous ‘trial and error’ process of recruitment that founders undergo in the early stages of their venture.

But based on many interviews and casual discussions with bootstrapped startups, it appears some founders feel quite possessive of their employees, with one describing an employee departure as “inconsiderate” and “leaving a big hole in the business”. Other sentiments include “they clearly didn’t understand what a startup is about, it’s hard work with little return for a long time” and “it’s such a shame because if they stayed, they’d know that the benefits outweigh the interim struggle, they would have been rewarded substantially”.

Are VCs Really Looking For Founders With Emotional Intelligence? - - -sponsored by GreatestFounders™

I'm curious to know from the founders and venture capitalist if they sit in meetings wondering if this founders team's  E.i. is off the charts, . . .we better not let this bastard get away?

Logic tells me it might just be one other way to evaluate a founder. But how would they even do this evaluation anyway?

Based on what I've read  it seems observation might be the only way to find out. I guess it would consist of the following.

If Venture Capitalists Don't Like A Founder, Is That a Deal Breaker? - - -sponsored by GreatestFounders™

I was just wondering how much does likeability play a role in which founders get funded and which don’t?

Are likeable founders more successful than non-likeable founders?  I’m not really sure. I was hoping some VCs, founders, employees and the general public would be able to answer that via a new platform.

Obviously a VC not liking a founder might include: their questionable character, bad work ethics, questionable past, an unethical moral compass, lack of signs of significant accomplishment, lack of community involvement, no financial discipline, etc. . .those are clear deal breakers.

Like I mentioned, there are many factors that play into whether people generally like you or dislike you.  In this age of growing social tensions it could be your:

 gender, religion, skin, school, background, education level, breath, personality, beauty, height, dress,  sexiness, etc.

You Are An Efficient Founder When You Find The People That Allow You To Do These Three Things - - -sponsored by GreatestFounders™

Almost every founder is going to go through terrifying moments when they have to let their baby operate fully without their presence. The fact is there are steps to take to ease the transaction.

Founders want to know they can travel the world and leave the operation to capable and trustworthy people. After all, most founders have made some serious sacrifices just to get to a point of putting normal hours instead of extreme hours like Elon Musk. Wait a minute,. . . I believe Elon has five boys and still puts in sixty hours work week.

The point here is to build a business that can run great with or without you.

Founders Like Jeff Bezos Can Change The World But Can They Make It A Better World? - Founders Under 40™ Group Sponsor

It’s always great to want to be founder or person that changes the world however the question many founders fail to ask is…is the business for the better of the world or as a founder are you just creating new problems?

The truth is, there’s no founder on this planet that doesn’t aspire to change something, create something, or tweak things except maybe you were a small cannabis dealer. However since the time of innovations, entrepreneurs have been altering the world with their creations with a huge blind optimism. Some founders have made life some-how better but one sometimes wonder why do we still face the same social & economic problems that were present in the stone age, bronze age, dark age, religious age, industrial age, etc. The purpose of this exploratory content is to see if founders do really change the world for the better or just change it.

We still live in a world of have mores and have nots. We live in a world whose foundation is based on the co-existence of opposites but what if founders could fulfill people’s desires with little downside to a person’s life? Love, ecstasy, fantasy, all delivered in a matrix like world. Clearly would be a better world.

Simply using STEM to eradicate factors that cause human suffering around the world. “Instead, as of this century we have manage to create kings and queens out of founders who still haven’t figure how to change the world or solve problems without a lot of side-effects.” says, Manny of Founders Under 40™ Group
