Every business, from new startups to local stores and established companies, places an emphasis on their marketing strategies. But what exactly does “marketing” mean? We know the obvious answer: to get the word out about your brand. However, is that where marketing ends? No! The most successful businesses use marketing to solve problems before they even arise – “fall in love with the problem, not the solution.” Take your business to the next level!
When it comes down to it, some marketing is better than no marketing, but also…if you want to take your business to the next level, you should consider putting those traditional marketing techniques on the back burner and branch out. There are easier and less expensive ways to be unconventional. Try utilizing guerrilla marketing, handing out wacky business cards, or redesigning your website; whatever you do, just make sure to invoke curiosity by being unexpected. Not only are new strategies fun and exciting, it can also be a journey.
Trying out new strategies will be a learning experience: some things will work and of course. some things won’t. In addition, when you come up with an idea that no business has tried, you’ll already have a significant edge. The best marketers go beyond the typical strategies, and that’s exactly what our guest, Morad Fiki, has made equally important alongside typical marketing strategies.
Upon honorable discharge from the U.S. Navy in 2013, Morad Fiki has tackled the high-end luxury Houston residential real estate market. Morad has always strived to use Innovative and unorthodox marketing strategies for high-end Luxury residential Properties. Equally, he is constantly thinking “outside of the box,” as well as consistently using enhanced Social media techniques to target online buyers for his high-end listings. He strives to be on the forefront of the “Next New Thing” and has thus been dubbed as the Future of Houston Luxury Real Estate. Morad Fiki has been named in the latest issue of Houston Luxury Magazine as one of “Houston’s Top Luxury Real Estate Professionals.”

Eric Troutman is one of the country’s prominent class action defense lawyers and is nationally recognized in Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) litigation and compliance.
He has served as lead defense counsel in more than 200 national TCPA class actions and has litigated nearly a thousand individual TCPA cases in his role as national strategic litigation counsel for major banks and finance companies. He also helps industry participants build TCPA-compliant processes, policies and systems.
Eric has built a national litigation practice based upon deep experience, rigorous analysis and extraordinary responsiveness. Eric and his team feel equally at home litigating multibillion dollar telecommunications class actions in federal court as they do developing and executing national litigation strategies for institutions facing an onslaught of individual TCPA matters.
They thrive in each of these roles – delivering consistently excellent results – while never losing sight of the client experience.
While many firms now tout TCPA expertise, Eric has been there from the beginning. He built one of the country’s first TCPA-only defense teams and began serving as national TCPA counsel for his clients nearly a decade ago. This perspective allows him to swiftly develop the right litigation strategies for dealing with recurring problems, without wasting time on tactics that are bound to fail.
Eric’s rich historical perspective and encyclopedic knowledge of the TCPA landscape also make him an invaluable resource to institutional compliance teams struggling to comply with the shifting regulatory landscape. No task is too small – or too big. Indeed, Eric and his team have helped build TCPA-compliant systems and processes for some of the largest and most complex corporate entities in the country.
He commonly works with in-house compliance counsel to build and implement enterprise and business-line specific TCPA solutions, performs TCPA audits and drafts and reviews proposed TCPA policies and procedures. He and his team also have the technical expertise necessary to assist call centers seeking to develop TCPA-resistant call path architecture or to modify existing telephony and software integration to better insulate from potential TCPA exposure.
Eric has built a reputation for thought leadership. An avid blogger and speaker, he has been at the forefront of the industry’s effort to push for clarity and a return to sanity for the TCPA for years. He was selected to advocate for the financial services industry on important TCPA issues before the Federal Communications Commission and co-authored the nation’s only comprehensive practice guide on TCPA defense.
Eric leads defense teams representing banks and other financial services companies in consumer finance litigation matters. He has experience representing clients in UCC, TILA, RESPA FCRA, CCRA, CLRA, FDCPA, RFDCPA and FCCPA claims, as well as in fraud and bank operations issues.
