Can You Believe 400,000 Points For Jay!

Posted by mgoodman on 500 Points
Well, we knew this day was coming. Jay Hamilton-Roth has passed the 400,000 point milestone here on the MarketingProfs Know-How Exchange.

While the absolute number of points is obviously not the goal, it's impossible to reach a level like that without (a) responding to a lot of questions and (b) having those responses accepted as valuable by a whole lot of the people asking the questions.

Along the way, Jay has set an example for us all -- of creativity, imagination, sound strategic thinking, and a marketing instinct that is most uncommon.

Thanks for sharing your talents with us, Jay. And congratulations on this remarkable accomplishment. It's sure nice to have you around. Think you can make it to half-a-million?

    The question is "when do I give up trying?"

    I remember when I first started posting on this forum. I was in awe of the top 5 KHE experts: Michael, Randall, Chris, Marcus, and Peter. Their postings always reflected wisdom and a sincere desire to help. Years later, I feel humbled to be in such company.

    It's funny that when people ask us how to market a business' anniversary, we often suggest "Don't bother. No one really cares. Instead do something remarkable for you clients/community.". So in the spirit of celebrating my current 100,000 anniversary:

    Tonight (June 10) I'll be chairing an event called: TEDxMarin. If you're not aware of TED Talks, I encourage you to take a peek at the width & depth of amazing presenters ( Our event tonight is independently organized, and locally based. The reason I mention it is it'll be live streamed from our home page ( 6-8pm PST. That's my #1 gift to this community.

    As some of you may know, I also produce/host the TV series Business With Passion ( - which showcases "interviews with people who have successfully transformed their long-term passion into a successful business". My #2 gift is for both of us - if you have the time/inclination to watch an episode, honestly let me know what you think. If you know someone who you think would be a great guest, please invite them to contact me.

    Jay - well done, you continue to prove the value of the forum and the KnowHow exchange to its members, without whom you wouldn't have received a single point so you must be doing many, many things right, leaving a lot of happy bunnies out there!

    Ant chance you could take over corporate PR for BP for a bit? I think that they need you

    Meanwhile I hope that we have a chance to meet up some time

    1. I bet Jay meant that the time for tonight's TEDxMarin event is 6-8 pm PDT, not PST.

    2. If you have not previously seen episodes of Jay's television productions ("Business With Passion"), let me encourage you to check them out. You not only get to see Jay introduce and wrap-up each one, but you get to meet and spend time with some very interesting entrepreneurs. What they all have in common is that they pursued a personal passion in a business or career.

    I dare you not to love any one of the 36+ episodes.

    Thanks for the "anniversary" presents, Jay.
