How I Landed on the New York Times and What It All Means

by Marcus Sheridan

I’m taking a break today from “marketing stuff” to share some personal thoughts and reflection on these last couple of weeks. If you’re uninterested in the personal, tune back in a few days where we’ll be talking about some incredibly effective and innovative local SEO techniques for content marketers. Until then, here goes:

A Series of Fortunate Events

Thursday January 24th 2013, 12:10pm: I’ve just finished speaking at the Vistage International Conference in Dallas Texas. The session seemed to be a huge hit, and among the people that approached me afterwards was a very kind employee of the New York Times, Loren Feldman, saying he wanted to possibly do a story on my swimming pool company’s success from content marketing and also my transition from “pool guy” to “marketing guy.” Although the idea sounds wonderful, I don’t anticipate anything will come from this.

Tuesday January 29th 1:37pm: I just received an email from Loren and he says a reporter will be contacting me soon to do a story. Honestly, I still don’t expect much, as my experience with newspaper reporters up to this point when discussing marketing never seems to be too exciting, but we’ll see.

Friday February 8th 6pm: I just got off the phone with New York Times reporter Mark Cohen. Expecting the call to be just a few minutes, we ended up chatting for over an hour about my entire story and the unusual things I’ve done with content marketing to find success. He was especially interested in my willingness to discuss the competition and answer every single question we’d been asked as pool guys. I didn’t know reporters could be this fun to talk to.

Thursday February 14th: I got an email from Mark Cohen today. He says Loren from the Times loves the piece, and that they’re going to be sending a photographer down to my swimming pool store as well. Now things are starting to get interesting…

Friday February 15th : A very cool freelance photographer, Jay Paul, came down to my store today and took a bunch of photos of me holding my laptop while standing next to one of our fiberglass pool shells. He tells me the story should be running in the NY Times website in about a week, but isn’t sure as to whether or not it’s going to be in the paper version of the Times as well. Not wanting to make a mistake and give false information to anyone, I decide to wait to tell any friends about the possibility of the story.

Wednesday February 27th 10am: I get a Google Alerts that the article has run in the NY Times web version of the paper. Throughout the day, more and more people are starting to contact me with kind words of congratulations. Even better, I find out the story is running in the actual paper tomorrow as well. The article is only about 20% of our actual conversation, but it turned out great, and I’m finally allowing myself to be excited.

Thursday February 28th 10:30am: I’ve just gotten off stage after speaking to about 300 internet entrepreneurs at the Underground Conference (tremendous event btw) in Washington DC. Feeling great about how my talk went, I sit down and find a barrage of emails in my inbox. One of them is from Seth Godin’s literary agent, and she tells me she believes the story needs to be told in book form, and would like to represent me going forward.

Oddly, I feel tears running down my cheeks. I read the email twice to make sure I didn’t read it wrong the first time. Yep, it’s Seth Godin’s agent.

I’m finally one step closer to getting the book (or should I say series of books) published that I know is very much inside of me, and am overwhelmed with gratitude.

Sunday, March 4th 12:10am: Here I now sit, writing this little blog post. This last week has been incredibly surprising. The article in the Times was a hit, one of their most read business articles of the week. And with record traffic on the TSL website every day, hundreds of emails have come in and almost 1000 people have subscribed to the blog.

At the same time, what this last 4 years has taught me is to not get too high or too low with any event. Often, “big breaks” aren’t nearly as big as they initially appear, and those “huge disappointments” are equally not as bad as we often perceive them.

Life works in funny ways. For the first 12 months of The Sales Lion, almost no one read or listened. Those were tough times.

Today, people are listening—and although it may not be the biggest or best blog in the world, I feel a deep sense of appreciation for all the progress that has been made, to all those wonderful people that have helped get me there,  and at the same time know this is just the beginning.

NYTimes? Marcus, ask me if I’m surprised?! LOL… You’re partner Jason predicted this three years ago when we first met at Inbound 2010 (HUGS) after I commented on your performance in the speaker’s panel. I’ll paraphrase here “Marcus has a God-given talent to share his story with others. His will be a force in this industry. His passion is both genuine and infectious… He has a real gift.”
I couldn’t agree more with what Jason said over three years ago. You have unselfishly shared with others who will listen, the road map to inbound marketing success. You have created an inbound army that benefits from your common sense approach to marketing. My heartfelt congratulations and thanks to you my good friend…
Rock on!

Marcus Sheridan March 4, 2013 at

You’re so kind Owen. I remember that event. And Jason, my best friend in the world, continues to make me believe in my gifts to this day. Had he and Jim not pushed me to chase my dreams, I wouldn’t be here. I’m so very blessed to have met them, and can’t thank you enough for the kindness Owen.

This is a great story to read first thing Monday morning. The fact that a man who has no experience writing can one day start answering his customers questions about pools would eventually be featured in The New York Times. Yet another inspiring post by you Marcus. Thank you and congratulations.

Reply

Marcus Sheridan March 4, 2013 at

Yep, it has been a most unique journey Keith, and I’m grateful for all those folks like you that have shared a part of it with me.

At one time, I was a pretty bad writer. Today, I’m a little bit better. But the work– that’s the great divide between getting there and not.

Thanks again for your kind words,

Congratulations!

Oh, I’m sure they do Marcus! As a mom of 3, it was the first thing that popped into my head. I watched my kid win 1st place in a school talent show the other night and all I could think was, YES! Finally someone gets what they deserve! Got the same feeling when I read your post. I can picture you beaming like my 8th grader. So happy for you :)

No one deserves it more, Marcus!

Reply

Marcus Sheridan March 4, 2013 at

Believe it or not Deb, you have a big, big part in this and you don’t even know it. I wasn’t able to add all the details to the complete chain of events in this post, but the whole reason I spoke at the Vistage conference was because a Vistage member, who was in my session at Blog world LA, recommended me.

And the only reason I was at Blog World LA was because one Deb Ng recommended me.

Had she not done that, this whole thing never would have happened.

You’ve had a huge impact on my life Deb, thank you :-)

Marcus – I’m so super excited for you, the success you’ve achieved and everything that lies ahead for you! It couldn’t happen to a better guy. :)

Thanks for sharing your story and reminding people that success doesn’t come overnight. When we see people burst on the scene or achieve massive success, we rarely see what it takes to get there. Success rarely happens overnight. It takes months or even years of hard work. It means sticking with it when things are tough and not giving up when you’re not getting traction. You did that and it has paid off. I hope this helps inspire others to stick with their efforts too.

Way to go! Here’s to many more wonderful things ahead!

Reading your story here, not surprised it was sparked by a speaking gig; you just crackle w/ energy and enthusiasm on stage, hard not to sit up and take notice. Congrats.. and can I have your autograph? ;-)

Marcus, it’s been awesome watching your climb to the top… In the grand scope of things, you really are just getting started.

With fame and wealth comes great responsibility and the resources to impact the world as much as you have a vision for…

I have a feeling you will be in this exclusive group of awesome entrepreneurs who are changing the world for the better.

I do have one more observation though; have you gained weight since we first met?

You better get on a pool digging crew once a month to keep that girlish figure :o

Hey Marcus,

In my mind, the NYT is just catching up to the fact we already knew – you’re the genuine article (said with a Southern Virginia twang) man!

It’s a real treat watching the way you work and the consistency of your intentions – more great things are in store I’m sure!

As much as anything else, Marcus, your humble approach to something so huge is the most impressive part. Those of us who’ve got to know your story through the blog first can feel lucky that we’ve been able to benefit from your insights and passion for more of the journey (though obviously not those first twelve months of tumble weed!)

Thanks for doing what you do and keep doing it with that humility that we can all learn from.

p.s. I found out about this through the music industry’s Lefsetz Letter. You clearly impressed Bob, which is arguably harder to achieve than landing in the NYT ;-)

Fabulous. I’m happy for you Marcus. It doesn’t happens all the times but giving freely sometimes gets paid back, and there is an enormous amount of information in this website and without having to pay for a course. :)

After all isn’t a demonstration that hard work and being wise plus surely a particular point of view (correct I would say) brings benefits and goals achieved?

Forgive my English but I guess you know what I intend to mean.

These are one of the things that make people happy just by reading about them.

Great job Marcus.

I have been blogging for the past two weeks, but it is good to know that it will take a long time to become a success and that I need to keep moving forward each and every day. I appreciate the sharing of your personal success. That is so cool. I hope the book writing is going well.
