“The Brian Tracy Show”, filmed in San Diego, California, features an interview format, with Brain Tracy interviewing business leaders and marketing experts from around the world. Don Orton was one of Mr. Tracy’s recent guests, discussing how he is helping the owners and managers of local businesses take advantage of the mobile revolution to grow sales and increase profits.
“Business is changing rapidly,” remarked Mr. Orton. “There are now more mobile devices in use than PCs. Text messaging and local search are now the way to reach your customers. Text messages are read instantly. And, purchase decisions after mobile searches are made within 24 hours. The pace of decision-making and communication is accelerating. If your business isn't being found on mobile searches, and you're not using mobile marketing to reach your customers and prospects, you're losing customers today.”
For over 20 years Mr. Orton served as an engineer and engineering manager for several large technology firms in the Minneapolis area. During that time he spearheaded a number of technical product innovations, working closely with several well-known Silicon Valley companies.
Subsequently, Mr. Orton served in senior executive roles with three technology startup companies, in the semiconductor, medical devices and healthcare software industries. In 2007, he went into private practice, initially providing broad based business management services in the areas of general management, leadership development, project management and business process improvement. In 2012, recognizing how rapidly the new mobile technologies were transforming the business landscape, he formed Mainstreet Mobile to provide any local business owner or manager the ability to have their own mobile marketing expertise.
The Brian Tracy Show was produced by Emmy Award winning director and producer, Nick Nanton, Esq. and Emmy Nominated Producer, JW Dicks, Esq., Co-Founders of America’s PremierExperts®
