We at VisionPATH work hard to provide the best possible advice and service to our clients. We have worked with more than 100 small business owners, giving them an outside perspective to help them solve problems and work on their business instead of in their business. Recently, we took the next step in providing excellent business solutions to our client base: we became a certified duct tape marketing affiliate.

Jody Gouge, owner and founder of VisionPATH Business Solutions, attended training with Duct Tape Marketing in Kansas City, MO, the Duct Tape Marketing Headquarters, in early 2016. The training consisted of in-depth marketing strategy and training intechniques for the quickly changing world of online marketing.

What does it mean to be Duct Tape Marketing Certified?

When you hire a certified Duct Tape Marketing Consultant, you are getting years of ever-evolving marketing experience at your fingertips. You gain access to a proven process that has worked on clients of all sizes over and over again, and your certified Duct Tape Marketing Consultant will use it to ensure success for your business.

Duct Tape Marketing was developed over 20 years ago as a way to install a turnkey marketing system into small to mid-size businesses. John Jantsch, its founder, has written several books and earned accolades from Forbes, CNBC, the New York Enterprise Report and even reached the Wall Street Journal bestseller list. Jantsch’s Duct Tape Marketing blog was chosen as a Forbes favorite for marketing and small business and his Duct Tape Marketing podcast was called a “must listen” by Fast Company magazine. Jantsch has delivered keynote speeches to organizations such as American Express, Microsoft, Verizon, HP, and eBay. He also is the featured marketing contributor to American Express OPENForum.
