About the Host
Host Name: Craig Garber
This is a little lengthy, but you probably want to know who you are dealing with, so read or skip at your leisure:
I’m 54 years old and have been working for myself for the last 20 years. As someone who grew up completely in love with music, and in particular, the guitar... this is, by far, the most fun and exciting project I’ve ever worked on. And as you’ll see in a minute, I’ve definitely been around the block.
I’m originally from NYC and currently living in Tampa, Florida for the last 14 years. Graduated college with a degree in Accounting, worked as a CPA with a Big 6 firm, got into sales, then ran my own Estate Planning and asset management firm from 1994 to 2000.
In 1999, I got heavily into learning about direct-response marketing and since March of 2000, I have run a marketing consulting firm. I’ve worked in over 108 different industries - consulting with businesses on generating leads, building sales funnels, developing marketing systems, and writing ad copy.
My strengths are lead generation, maximizing customer value, and lowering customer acquisition costs. Published a book on marketing, sales and writing ad copy in 2009, called How to Make Maximum Money With Minimum Customers.
For 10 years, I also published a monthly, paid for subscription newsletter called “Seductive Selling.” This newsletter came with a packet of inserts (ads, other marketing strategies and items) which were discussed throughout the newsletter text. It also contained a monthly interview I did, with either one of my clients or a peer, discussing marketing strategies.
I have written literally thousands of ads, emails and sales letters, selling items from a $20 book... to $5,000 seminar seats. I have a great track record and would be happy to share specific performance results with you, if you’d like. I’ve also been involved in loads of side projects during this time, from e-commerce businesses selling supplements... to running seminars and teaching loan officers how to market their business... and several other things, in between.
Which means if you need help developing your ad for the Everyone Loves Guitar podcast, or with your marketing in general... I am also available to help you.
Most important: You will NEVER have to deal with any kind of “sales junk” when you’re working with me. I’m not pushy one little bit. If it’s a fit for you to advertise on Everyone Loves Guitar, that’s great. And if it’s not, that’s totally fine, as well. I hate being pushed around in any way, myself - which is why I’m so cognizant of this when dealing with others.
I’m also very stable - you’ll always be talking to the same “Craig.” Doesn’t matter if you call me at 5pm on a Monday afternoon, or 9 am on a Thursday morning. Been with my wife for 26 years - we have 3 children (2 boys and a girl) & 1 grandchild.
I’m in great shape, have a tremendous work ethic, and hobbies include playing guitar, working out, traveling, photography, fishing, good cigars and good coffee. I love being an entrepreneur and I’m always looking for new projects and side hustles, when I have the time for them.
Lastly, because of the intensity and length of the show, listeners have a very good rapport with me, as well. They know, like and trust what I’m saying. We get daily fan mail from listeners who are incredibly enthusiastic about the show. Many of these messages make mention of “favorite podcast,” “listened to so many episodes I didn’t sleep,” “Great interviews” and virtually all of them mention the uniqueness of this particular show, how deep it goes in terms of getting to know the guests… and how it’s not like any other podcast they’ve ever heard.
