- AMS shows where the leads are coming from – social sites and google.
- Important to look at where you will be getting your leads in the future – making video, investing in blogs, increasing mobile apps.
- Do everything you can to make google happy, it’s your number one referrer.

- “Doers are the people that do things”
- “There is no doubt, hands down, we are getting our leads from online”
- “You never want to be looking at right now, you want to be looking at where the puck is going”
- “Do everything you can to make google happy”
- “How do you take that customer experience and really energize it, load it up, inject it with steroids so that it actually separates you from the other people?”
- “It’s about finding the job owners rather than the job renters, it’s the culture you set”
