In this episode of the Transformed Sales Podcast, I had a chat with Rick Elmore, an entrepreneur, sales and marketing expert, former college and professional football athlete. As the Founder and CEO of SimplyNoted, Rick developed a proprietary technology that puts real pen and ink to paper to scale handwritten communication, helping businesses of all industries scale this unique marketing platform to stand out from their competition and build meaningful relationships with clients, customers, and employees. 


Founded in 2018 and based in Tempe, Arizona, SimplyNoted has grown into a thriving company with clients of various sizes across the country including in hospitality, real-estate, insurance, nonprofit, franchise, B2B, and others. Rick has served as the company’s CEO since its founding, for more than three years, and has over a decade of sales and marketing industry experience. Rick delved into the huge sales growth potential of personalizing sales automation by incorporating handwritten notes, how sales leaders can build growth oriented teams with zero employee turnover, what it takes to retain customers long term, and so much more. Don’t miss out.
