Jay Hamilton Roth Over 500,000 Points!

Posted by mgoodman on 500 Points
In the last few days Jay Hamilton-Roth managed to slip across the half-million point threshold on this forum. Most of us know what an awesome accomplishment that is.

He has responded to almost 8,900 questions in less than 4 years -- that's more than one question every 4 hours, 24/7/365. And he's had 77.6% of his responses accepted -- reflecting the quality and helpfulness of his input.

Congratulations, Jay, on reaching this incredible milestone. And thank you for sharing your talents with us.

    One question every 4 hours!?! Wow!

    Congrads! And thanks for the answers you've provided to my questions.

    Hey, congratulations! That's a lot of brain power. If only those points came with air miles, huh? Wait -- given the present-day state of air travel, perhaps that would be a punishment rather than a reward ...

    Hey Marketing Profs ... these 500 points should go to Jay, too. After all, he'll need a little something to kick off that "million or bust!" campaign. And maybe after calculating the value of all the hours and intellect he has contributed to make the forum so valuable, it would be reasonable to toss in three or four days at, idunno, the Four Seasons in Maui?

    Just a thought. Congratulations, Jay!

    I think this proves that Jay is not human. No way. He's some kind of robotic carbon unit developed by an unnamed major brand for artificial marketing intelligence, and the Know-How Exchange is a platform for testing his cognitive abilities.

    Love ya anyway, Jay! ;]

    Most people know of Kenichi Ohmae as the head of the McKiinsey office in Japan who wrote the bestseller "The Mind of the Strategist." Quite a few know he has a PhD in nuclear engineering from MIT and now runs his own consultancy in Japan. But far fewer people know he has not written a half-dozen books, but actually over 100.

    You have that same kind of productivity. Have you thought about monitizing your input to MarketingProfs? You have the raw material for a series of E-book marketing books to sell on, Books Nooks (of Barnes and Noble), etc.

    You go through your answers, sort them into subject categories, and select the most interesting questions, best answers. Then you publish the Jay Hamilton Roth Marketing FAQ series.

    You could put together a consortium of other high producing members (mgoodman, among others) for the series, which conceivably could be a MarketingProf FAQ series.

    The E-books could be modestly priced, and, properly done, offer excellent value for the money. Of course organizing the questions into precise categories, cross-referencing and indexing the books, adding attractive images, editing, all take a lot of work. Furthermore one has to market the series as well.

    One of the books could be "dumbest marketing questions of all time," -- no, I am not serious, would not want to offend anyone out there without cause, serves no purpose.

    Obviously working hard is part of your DNA, so am curious as to your reaction.

    Congratulations Jay!!

    Half a million is truly an amazing feat of perseverance over time. An inspiration for all posters to continue to participate.

    Of course now I'm thinking is a million possible? The pressure is on :)
