Let’s start with thoughtful definition!

No need to explain Marketing or should I? I’ll get down to this into another post

To me thoughtful marketing defines the type of marketing I do with the companies I work for.

Thoughtful marketing is approaching all marketing communication showing consideration for the needs of the customer at the very beginning and thinking of marketing as a wholistic approach to give the right communication to internal stakeholders and customers alike.

Behind every word, every sentence, there is always a meaning, and behind a personal statement there is a declaration of intentions. I define myself as a Life Enthusiast and I have recently been asked about what I mean with such words. The power of these two put together is somewhat unique in me.

Anyone who uses a tagline, to be somehow self-defined, should elaborate their own meaning. I strongly recommend the exercise of thinking deeply and writing down self-statements instead of just saying them out loud, in this way, you will build words to live by.

This statement to me works like a mantra, my personal motto or as a reminder to live life at its most.


It has been my pleasure to be part of DES 2016 Madrid and part of Salesforce Essentials 2016 Madrid, and Barcelona — That was a fun part of May / June this year, and the best of it is not just being in front of an audience to talk about what you have achieved so far and how great the products you are reviewing are, but the best is the journey where you learn and achieve something to talk about.

Becoming and advocate is not an easy path, it is about mastering at a product, service, tool, knowledge area…, so people listen how they can ease their journey thanks to your expertise. But expertise does not come easy. Before and while achieved (or sort of), it is the time to learn, watch, listen and re-imagine what is possible. …

After 1.5 years at VSN I have the feeling and I am certain that we are ready to take one step forward, but before that we need our sales people aligned, and have a great 2016. Bonus track, see below the video to learn how align a marketing and a Sales Team.

I know marketing is doing great, analytics tell us so, and competitors as well, which is good. Competitors have started copying us which means that we are doing something right, really.

If you see your competitors are copying you, keep on this track — You are doing great!

Want to see how each of our sales directors see the future ahead of us? They might be eloquent and optimistic, but they are the ones that must be, the ones that chase and get out on the field to make our dear customers better thanks to our technology. …


Oh well, 2015 is almost over.

It was a year full of projects and life changing events. Here are a few in order to have them in a safe place to remember in the future.

In a brainstorming exercise we can see that marketing became more personal, big data kept booming, and science made a step forward in various fields. However how did I keep improving? or at least tried to.

First things first, personally speaking, some of the habits that I built-in this year and want to keep in 2016:

  • Take good care of family and friends, connect and reconnect with them as much as…

There is only one way to address this question successfully and it is with asking yourself another question:

What is your target audience when blogging?

There is a goal behind any blog, from keeping a diary of your life journey, to help dozens of people on a specific topic. Whatever the goal is, the targeted audience can be from yourself, to a specific region or worldwide distribution. If this last one is the case, it is well known that english is the business language to transact all over the world, and the main language used when traveling. …


After following Steli at Close.io for some time it is time to actually recommend him out loud.

Steli is the guy that sends me an e-mail every day (Sat and Sun included) at 2pm CEST — or what’s the same, 9am EDT (NYC time) — to shoot me with a quote that will push my day forward.

It is not just a quote, it is a video in HD, with a few suggestions and a call to action that makes you want to do more and take the most from the day ahead. …

It’s typical for entire families to celebrate the month of August by shutting down the computer and skipping to towns and resorts. From a raw numbers perspective, this counts as lost work (as I used to think). But that’s a short-sighted view, psychologists now say: In fact, by serving as the least productive month for millions of workers, August unexpectedly serves as a productivity-booster.

Today, 1st of September, seems to be the not so celebrated Back To Work International Day. …
