About Peter Radizeski
I put my BS in Chemistry to use for 6 years working as an R&D Chemist for BIC and Oil of Olay and as a Pharmaceutical Chemist for Bayer and Glaxo.
When I met my wife, I moved from NC to Tampa – 10 years ago – and went to work for my buddy in the LAN business. His company built and maintained Novell POS systems worldwide. Lots of backup and modem support.
Then I was introduced to telecom in 1999 by a BellSouth Agent I played volleyball with. My niche was the Internet Provider industry. Originally, I helped ISP’s offer DSL in the BellSouth region. As my client base expanded, I added other carriers to become an independent agent selling for 20+ telecom companies including Level(3).
The Service Provider companies I was working with needed assistance not only marketing and selling DSL, but finding their niche – their profitable focus. At times, I would be selling for them. So my business shifted to consulting. A couple of companies use me as a Sales QB for their sales team. I have done compensation plans, hiring, firing and sales management.
MarketingIdeaGuy.com came about because I was planning Guerrilla Marketing tactics for clients. When faced with a giant competitor like Verizon (or Wal-Mart or Home Depot), small business needs to make noise through a different channel – using a different megaphone. There are many ways to do that within a reasonable budget. This is actually full circle for me as I used to market, consult and manage clubs and restaurants in my twenties.
I also help Internet Service Providers with business strategy. I’ve always been a problem solver and thinking outside of the box has been my mainstay since high school. I am a firm believer in coaching as well as in the Laws of Attraction: Energy attracts Like Energy. As Zig Ziglar says: “You can get everything in life you want if you will just help enough other people get what they want.”
I’m here to help you market your idea or business.
