So what is it exactly that Reg and his company do? Ahem… the first rule of fight club – you don’t talk about fight club. I can’t believe you already broke the first two rules! My bad, I kind of led you into that trap. Look, I’m not even entirely sure what Reg does. What I do know, however, is that people listen when the man speaks. First, let’s take a historical look at the meaning behind his nom de plume, Zaibatsu, to give you a perspective on what he’s all about.
According to Wikipedia – Zaibatsu is a Japanese term referring to industrial and financial business conglomerates in the Empire of Japan, whose influence and size allowed for control over significant parts of the Japanese economy. So, basically, he’s the Godfather of Social Media.
WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING
“If Howard Stern is the King of All Media, Reg is the king of SOCIAL Media. The guy just gets it, is always ahead of the curve, and happens to be a quality person to boot. If you want to know the first thing or the last thing about social media, if you want to know what is coming next, or if you want to understand how to succeed in the digital era, then find Reg- track him down and just try to get a little karma off of him!”
- Chris McGill, CEO of Mixx.com
“Reg’s knowledge of social media, it’s uses and potential, and his deployment of strategy on all channels, is unparalleled. He generously uses his extensive reach to help others. I don’t think there is any other person at his level of social media who gives as much (or as freely or as often) as he does.
I’m fortunate to call him a friend and feel great joy whenever he receives the recognition he deserves.”
- Terri Nakamura, Author of Confessions of a Graphic Designer
“Having moved 100 million pairs of eyes to content all over the Internet, Reg knows the 18 to 49 demographic like the back of his hand. Though part of his superpower depends on complete discretion about both his clients and his methods, a brief conversation with anyone who has used his services quiets any doubts immediately”
-Tinu Abayomi-Paul, Owner of Leveraged Promotions
A TRUE SOCIAL MEDIA MOGUL
Reg is a guy you want to know, to say the least. I’ve been privileged enough to be an acquaintance of his on FB, Twitter, and G+ so I’ve seen him in action. Many of you already know that he’s appeared in the top 10 on numerous Social Media Influencer lists; which he absolutely deserves to be. What you might not know, and what I find to be one of his most endearing qualities, is that he engages with people from all walks of life. He’ll still reply to your tweet even if you just barely made it into the top 50,000 social media influencer list! I’ve seen the how the other Twitter Powerhouses flock to him, pick his brain, and value his advice. He’s a man of the people and, as you read in the testimonials, he just makes things happen. So, on behalf of everyone in the socialsphere, I’d like to thank Reg for all of his contributions. And for the So G readership, after you leave a comment giving Mr Saddler a shout out, I encourage you to head over to his Klout profile and make it rain +K!
