Tampa Bay, Florida
Michael J. "Mike" McCormick started using LinkedIn in 2007 upon seeing the benefits of business networking on LinkedIn. He was a senior level manager in specialty retail and also served for a number of years in the Learning & Development community as a facilitator and training manager. While comfortable in his roles and positions within the organization, he saw the potential of online networking for expanding the company's business through the use of an online networking site.
In 2012, Mike founded Retail Consultants of Tampa Bay in order to offer business and management consulting to the small to midsized retailers that did not have access to the information or training programs available to the larger retailers.
Beginning with a focus on leadership and organizational development training, along with retail specific finance, human resources, sales, operations and time management programs, the services offered now include using social media, especially LinkedIn, for marketing and job searching strategies.
Mike has a weekly blog, an expanding Twitter base, and serves over 100 clients a month. He offers webinars on topics useful for the job seeker, and the business wanting to venture into online marketing within the social media platforms. This includes aiding the individual seeking additional recognition through the use of Media Authority.
His client base includes all of the C-Level positions (CEO, CFO, CIO, CMO, COO), as well as the VP, Director, Senior, and Manager levels of organizations large and small. The success of his clients is documented! He operates with the "heart of a teacher" and ensures that the client understands the power and use of social media as they go forward in their individual endeavors.
Mike has a LinkedIn network of over 25 million on LinkedIn and the network is continuously growing. His client base growth rate is exceptional and driven by the many referrals that he gets from past clientele. His goal is to give personal service to each client and at a fair and reasonable investment.
Mike is in the process of writing a book on strategies and techniques of using social media effectively. He will share the ideas and concepts that have made his business a success.
