James Adam – Ruthlessly Efficient Marketing


The Secret 8-step Revenue Breakthrough System

When the pandemic hit, James Adam realized that he was not doing what he loved. Out of his introspection, he co-founded Thirty-Three Percent. James is now dedicated to helping business owners to take control of their marketing and have that great relationship with their working lives. He’s on a mission to help clients achieve what he calls “ruthlessly efficient marketing”. 

Don’t miss these Highlights: 

  • How he became an accidental entrepreneur after a company closed down and he took on some of the clients privately
  • Understanding that marketing does not have to be this huge algorithm nor does it require you to be on every social media platform
  • The psychology of forming emotional connections with clients and thinking like them on an instinctive level
  • The only thing holding you back is the excuses you are making to make the achievements you deserve
  • Don’t make things over-complicated. All processes can be broken down into smaller components that are easily managed instead of looking at the process as a daunting whole

About the Guest: 

James helps destinations of all shapes and sizes drive footfall, increase spend and change perceptions by creating & building brands, developing strategies, and providing creative marketing campaigns. He has had a passion for destinations since starting in retail over 20 years ago, from shopping centers & hotels to towns & attractions – James loves getting people out there and experiencing things.
