What others have said about Josef Katz
"Josef and I were able to connect through social media outlets to discuss how our companies market to our customers. As a startup, it can be very difficult to pick and choose the most optimal methods to target your message to your prospective customers considering you're working with a constrained pool of funds. Reading Josef's insightful content through various media outlets helped tremendously, but it was a one-to-one conversation with him that blew me away. His experience and tactical insights on where to go and what to do has given us invaluable insight (for which I would imagine some experts would gladly charge a high price). Josef knows his company, his industry, and his methods well, and you can see this (alone) through the tremendous success StraighterLine has seen thus far in getting off the ground."
Josh LeQuire, President, LEVELEARNING
“At Franklin Spirko we get to work with many clients but none have been as exceptional as working with Josef. Mr. Katz exemplifies the word "creativity" and brings a tremendous amount of benefit to our relationship beyond just being a client. In our consulting he is an active member of our team and is thus very easy to work with. Viewing the relationship between supplier and client as a true partnership allows us to better deliver results. In our time working with Josef and Trump University I have found Josef to be one of the most exceptional marketing people I have ever worked with. His natural talent is exceeded only by an outstanding work ethic and what I consider an unsurpassed ability to quickly learn and implement new marketing techniques.”
Jack Spirko, President, Franklin Spirko Media
“Josef is a thoroughly proficient direct marketer who knows how to get things done, lead a team, build relationships, and come up with the next big thing. More importantly, he's a terrific person, whose integrity shines through in everything he does.”
Andrew Bein, CEO, Active Inquiry
“Josef brings a lot of insight and know-how to bare on his marketing relationships. Josef's marketing success can be directly attributed to his years of hands on experience. He is a very smart and driven employee whom I highly recommended.”
“Josef is a sharp, forward thinking marketer. In the time we've known each other and worked together I have found him to be open-minded and always seeking new ideas and new applications. He has an excellent grasp of virtually every facet of marketing, both online and off, and a superior knowledge of all database analytics.”
“Josef possesses an excellent balance between likability and expertise. Not one to boast about his numerous years of experience, he lets his work ethic and results sell themselves. I would welcome him on my team at any time.”
