Hi, I’m Adam Erhart, and I am a…
Here’s the long version: marketing growth strategist that helps business owners and entrepreneurs attract, connect, and better serve their customers by using online marketing strategies (which means a lot more profit and a lot more happy customers and clients!)
Here’s the short version: guy who helps people get more traffic, leads, and sales with online marketing.
I own a digital marketing agency, an advertising consulting agency, and a marketing training and coaching company (basically I do a lotta marketing!)
If you’re looking for awesome (according to my Mom) and free (though still incredibly valuable) marketing content then I’ve got you covered with:
- A YouTube Channel called The Modern Marketing Show: The Modern Marketing Show (YouTube)
- A podcast called The Modern Marketing Podcast: The Modern Marketing Podcast (iTunes)
- And I write a daily email called… yup you guessed it… Modern Marketing Newsletter: The Modern Marketing Newsletter
The good news behind all that time and effort is that a few simple principles have enabled me to help myself and my clients build and grow value producing and highly profitable businesses.
I truly believe that marketing is the single most important element in business success (yes that’s a bold claim), and that strategy should always (Yes… ALWAYS) form the foundation of any marketing campaign.
It’s my goal to share what I’ve learned over the years with you, and so I write and speak primarily about marketing, (but also a little on entrepreneurship, personal development, productivity, and business, as they all tie in to one another at some point or another)
If you’re like me and LOVE marketing, you can subscribe here to the Modern Marketing Newsletter (which is where I share some of my best stuff. Seriously, if you’re not subscribed… you’re missing out big time.)
Modern Marketing Principles
Owning and operating a marketing agency has given me the inside scoop on what worked in the past, what’s working now, and what’s going to work in the future.
With years of experience, countless thousands of campaigns run, hours and hours of study (ie countless books, audios, courses, and seminars) I’ve been able to distill a few simple marketing truths.
And it turns out, they weren’t as complicated as I had originally thought.
My Modern Marketing Principles are:
- And…. a few more top secret ones 😉
I’m a former Executive Business Jet Pilot who has had the privilege of serving some of the world’s richest and most powerful individuals (aka, I flew uber-rich people, royalty, and celebrities all around the world).
From Forbes billionaires to world leaders, foreign diplomats to senior executives, and religious leaders to royalty.
I’ve seen the entire spectrum of success (and a whole lotta “un-success”… or “not-success”… or I guess as it’s more commonly known… “failure”)
While flying business jets around the world was an amazing experience, after years of flying I found myself unfulfilled and unhappy.
From the outside I appeared successful, but on the inside I knew I wanted something different, something more.
So with the support of my family (though most of them thought I was nuts) I gave up flying, committed myself to an even deeper study of marketing and business and started my first business working as a marketing consultant for small businesses.
Though it was a rocky start, thanks to the guidance of some amazing mentors, coaches, consultants, and friends… I now get to spend my time helping others improve their marketing, grow their businesses, and follow their dreams. Good times.
I’ve been married to my wife Natalie for 8 years, and we have a 2.5 year old son named Benjamin (the picture below is him at 6 months looking VERY surprised), a 6 month old baby boy named Alexander, and a yellow lab named Jake.
We live most of the time on Vancouver Island, in British Columbia, Canada, (it’s about as far west as you can go) and spend a healthy part of each year travelling to our favourite places, currently Hawaii, and Tofino.
In my free time I play guitar, read, attempt to cook (though I do make a mean chicken, bacon mac and cheese), and workout regularly. (Also thanks to having 2 young boys I spend a lot of time playing lego and trains on the floor.)
If you’re like most of my clients and students then you’re a smart, hard-working, and talented entrepreneur or business owner. You know marketing is important but you feel you may be missing a key piece of the puzzle. If that’s the case… I may be able to help.

But due to my travel schedule (and the fact that I’m really bad at checking my post office box), email is definitely the best bet!
