20 Jun June 23, 2014 – Branding w Autumn Tompkins & Sourcing Products w Brandon Rickman
Autumn Tompkins believes that copy should make you say, Wow! She started her own copy-writing shop to create copy that captures your expert voice and generates genuine sales. Autumn can turn maybe’s into most definitely’s, and she also works on grants and marketing efforts. With her mildly sarcastic and down-to-earth approach, Autumn helps get rid of clunky writing that hurts credibility and limits profits. Autumn describes herself as, “a nail-biting, Southern Comfort-loving, poker-playing, adventure-seeking, animal-adoring, tattoo addict who has a way with words.”
Brandon Rickman started in construction as a residential developer. His brother invented a drywall product, and it set Brandon on a new path. He specializes in getting real products produced and distributed worldwide. His products have sold at Bed, Bath & Beyond, Home Depot, Lowe’s, Academy Sports, Dollar General, The PGA Tour Superstore, and many others. He also licensed his patented products to Fortune 500 companies and manufactured and distributed products under license with the NCAA, NASCAR, and Disney/MARVEL. Great info on sourcing from China in this interview! Brandon is also part of the co-working space OHub in Atlanta.
