Hi, I’m Mike Root, Founder of Get Customers Right Now, a marketing company that focuses on direct response marketing dedicated to getting customers into your store right now. I’m also the President of Furniture Sales of Mid-America, a furniture wholesale company in the Midwest and Rocky Mountain states that has been recognized by numerous national furniture factories for sales excellence including Salesman of the Year more than 10 times. I currently serve to the Executive Committee of the International Home Furnishings Representative’s Association (IHFRA).

My career has been spent as a retailer and trusted adviser to major retailers studying, testing and teaching marketing strategies and techniques that bring results. There are incredible opportunities for our industry to make a difference in people’s lives. It will be my intention to share with you whatever positive stories I hear from around the country as they relate to running a successful marketing campaign. Get Customers Right Now is not specific for one industry, but hopefully the message will resonate with all businesses who want to Get Customers Right Now.

My perspective is one of a third generation furniture guy and marketer. My father, Emmet Root, is still active as a rep after over 50 years. I myself have been a rep since 1994. I have also been in furniture retail, wholesale and rental for over 10 years. I’ve seen just about all sides of the industry, and I love every bit of it.

Over time, I have won numerous awards all pointing to a strong emphasis on sales, marketing and taking care of the customer. These awards include:

  • The Small Business Administration’s Young Entrepreneur of the Year.

  • The Greater Omaha Chamber of Commerce honor as being one of the Top 25 Fastest Growing businesses in the state for three years in a row.

  • Glazer Kennedy Insider Circle’s Marketer of the Year Finalist

My background of sales and marketing has led the past several years to extended studies in direct response marketing to help my customers sell more with less effort.
