About Spencer X Smith's Services
Are you getting results from your digital marketing & social media efforts? Are you paying for vague services without knowing what really works?
Clients work with me when they want to achieve measurable increases in revenue from their social media and digital marketing efforts. I help you build the strategy to grow your business first, and use plain English to help you understand what methods are worth doing – or not doing – with your business.
What makes me different? Everything I teach is based on things I’ve actually done. The ideas I share are what I use every day in my businesses, and only through experiencing the success and failure of these ideas can I confidently advise on them. Want to see real-life versions of any of the ideas I ask you to implement? Just ask and I’ll share them.

The business experiences that have shaped Spencer
Playing drums in, and managing a rock band
The band, Myopic Son, released three albums, toured extensively for six years, and had the opportunity to play many awesome venues, including Milwaukee’s Summerfest, a dream for Spencer since he grew up watching bands perform there.
Once Myopic Son played Summerfest (the World’s Largest Music Festival) they could play almost anywhere else they asked. Why? They were vetted by the best. Spencer has written extensively on how to develop The Summerfest Effect for your business. Hint: it starts with developing your one-of-a-kind brand by becoming the best teacher in your industry.
Participating in over 3,000 face-to-face sales meetings over the course of seven years
This taught Spencer the power of teaching those who would become your clients, and why you can never make things too simple.
Have you ever been in a situation where you’re competing based on price? In Spencer’s experience that happened when his solution was simply seen as a commodity. To avoid this situation, we need to be seen as the expert. We need to teach our potential customers not only what they should know, but also what questions they should be asking.
Building and selling a technology company
Now, since data is available on literally anything we do online, how do we determine what’s important and what to measure? Spencer has shared exactly what data to ignore, and what to watch with earnest.
What’s the reason the company had value? The company evolved from a break/fix technician-style model to one of an ongoing consultative relationship. Spencer would love to show you how to create a subscription-style model with your business as well.

Founding and operating a real estate investing company
What’s the best thing about investment real estate? Predictable, recurring revenue every single month. Is it easy? No way. Over the past 17 years, Spencer and his team have implemented systems to streamline operations and assure consistent experiences for our residents.
When we work with you and your team, and ask you to develop systems, know that it’s because we’ve seen the value in them. Interested in learning more about the value of systems? Read What Is Your Business Really Worth?
