Megaman Daryn Ross Wins Superconference Award
Daryn Ross, also known as Megaman, the super hero of marketing for Excelsior Springs, Missouri-based industry supplier, Megafast, recently won the title of extraordinary marketer of the year at the annual Marketing and Moneymaking Superconference held in Chicago.
Nearly 1,000 marketing professionals and business owners from 13 countries were present. Of the 75 people who submitted their companies’ marketing materials, six were chosen to present, with Ross receiving the award. Ross develops and implements all the marketing campaigns at Megafast, and created the ‘Super Hero’ character called Megaman.
Ross attends six national trade shows a year dressed as Megaman and his marketing strategies have proven effective in an $18 billion industry. Ross called this the most successful self promotion his company has ever done. All of his company’s advertising materials feature Megaman and his goal is to see small business owners succeed.
“Starting a small business, or for that matter, operating your current business without a well-planned annual marketing plan is like attempting to sail a ship without a compass,” said Ross. “One of the main reasons any business fails to grow, succeed, or be profitable, is their inability to intelligently ‘market themselves and their business. Marketing is often the last thing on the list for the average business owner. If any time or money is left, then and only then is when most business owners think about marketing.”
Ross has such a passion for seeing businesses succeed, whether large or small, he recently created another company, Marketing All Star, where he helps promotional products distributors and business owners in any type of industry. Ross says nearly any business can survive in any type of economic climate with the right “message to market match.”
