Hi, I’m Adam Erhart, and I am a…
Here’s the long version: marketing growth strategist that helps businesses and entrepreneurs attract, connect, and convert more customers by using effective 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 leads, customers, and sales with 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 (at least according to my Mom) and free (though still incredibly valuable) marketing content then I’ve got you covered with:
- A YouTube Channel called The Marketing Show: The Marketing Show (YouTube)
- And an (almost) daily email called… yup you guessed it… The Marketing Newsletter: The Marketing Newsletter
I truly believe that marketing is the single most important element in business success (yes, I know 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 Marketing Newsletter (which is where I share some of my best stuff. Seriously, if you’re not subscribed… you’re missing out big time.)
My 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:
- Strategy (think before you act… sounds obvious but you’d be shocked at some of the campaigns I’ve seen)
- Clarity (always prioritize clarity over creativity, a confused customer does not buy)
- Context (what you say is important, but so is where you say it. So make sure you’re saying the right things, in the right place, to the right people and you’ll do fine)
- Preeminence (this one is direct from Jay Abraham, but I firmly believe you should always try to become your client or customers most valued and trusted advisor)
- 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 businesses.
Though it was a rocky start things took off quickly (ohhhh bad pun), 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 9 years, and we have 3 little boys ages 4, 2, and just under 1 (the photo below is our 4 year old son at 6 months looking VERY surprised). We’ve also got a yellow lab because the more the merrier right?
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, with a few trips down to Nashville thrown in there for good measure).
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 3 young boys I spend a lot of time playing lego and trains on the floor. My Lego game is average at best though…)
If you’re like most of my clients and students then you’re a smart, hard-working, and talented professional, entrepreneur, or business owner. You know marketing is important but you feel you may be missing a key piece of the puzzle which is leading to overwhelm, confusion, and frustration.
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!
