MEET TOM AUGENTHALER
Hi, I’m Tom, I strive to help you forge connections with social media influencers so you can grow your business. That’s what inspires me.
I’m an internet marketer, and I’ve had the privilege of working with some of the most powerful brands in business including HP, Dell, TIME, Oxfam and others. I’m also a speaker, coach and aspiring author.
When I’m not working, I try to experience as much as I can of life since we are all given a limited amount of time here.
About 2007, I got my first taste of historical European martial arts after stumbling across a website.
If you’re someone who gets excited about history, visiting historical places and learning how people in the past developed martial skills to survive, then we have a lot in common.
When I’m not sword training with my colleagues, I’m spending as much time with my family as possible. I know it might sound rather simplistic, but helping my son with his homework or helping my wife improve our home are some of the best things in life.

In fact, I still work with clients he introduced me to years ago. If you want to learn how influencer marketing is done well, take Tom’s course and you’ll learn actionable skills and information that will make your own influencer marketing campaigns a success.
Tom has a talent for understanding influencers and brands and facilitating so each side benefits. By including me in many of his campaigns, I got access to information and people not normally available. I’ve been able to forge relationships with brands and help them better understand their customers so they can market to them effectively. Take his course if you want to learn how influencer marketing is really done.
I’ve been a client of Tom’s for several years and he helped my former company establish a B2B influencer program that is still going strong. With his expertise, we set up a strong program including strategy, process and people. “He led us to set up a number of innovative campaigns that vaulted our marketing ahead of competitors and engaged customers like never before. Our physical corporate events gained virtual exposure way beyond expectations. Tom’s experience and guidance also helped our business stakeholders and highest executive levels to understand influencer marketing and its value to business goals. This program had not been done in the company previously. By taking his course, you’ll learn how to do it as well as any Fortune 500 company.
The downside of being thought of as an ‘influencer’, is the deluge of fakery, if you will from marketers trying to reach out. They are basically clueless. What they don’t understand is that synergistic success between marketers and influencers boils down to just one single thing: relationships. It’s the relationships, stupid! Tom Augenthaler understands this. I have worked with Tom from the time he was at HP to when he led the HP Enterprise practice for Ivy Worldwide. He knew how and when to reach out, and he made sure the influencers who worked with him on projects were a good fit. The campaigns I was a part of helped me develop new relationships that have continued to help me immensely. Better than that, he helped us grow in reach, and most importantly, in influence. It is with pride, that I attest to Tom’s marketing, influencer shepherding, and social media skills. I heartily recommend him. Without reservation.
What impresses me about Tom is his desire to work with influencers as content partners, and to create content that truly resonates with their audiences. This leads to productive relationships where both sides benefit ... influencers and brands.
