Key Takeaways and Actionable Tips:

Intro

 

Podcasting, the Right Way

  • Every day, you’ve got an opportunity to improve your skill
  • No matter what the mission of your podcast is, you can create a connection with your audience and what they care about
  • If you’re gonna be a guest on a podcast, familiarize yourself with the podcast style/audience
  • Doug hopes that everyone who listens has been slightly offended in their own way haha
  • Having guests on your show that you just don’t click with is normal
    • You’ve got the option to not upload a show if you feel it didn’t go well
  • Make sure that you communicate what you expect from your guest and for your audience

 

Closing Lines

  • Saying what’s true may be awkward at first, but it’ll be helpful!
  • Put things into perspective

Show Notes by Production Assistant - Anna Nygren

 

Intro

  • There’s nothing wrong with leading a company culture that is a required taste
  • Yes, there is such a thing as a brand dominatrix

 

Call Bullshit

  • The best brands in the world are the ones that say something unique about their users
  • The essence of branding is the following:
    • What does it say about a person when they use or patronize this brand?
    • How does this brand make itself indispensable?
    • What is the specific role that this brand plays in their life?
  • You are the hero in your own story!
  • People need to feel something emotionally before making a decision
  • You’ve got a brand whether you like it or not
    • Make your North Star your ideal customer

 

Closing Lines

  • Your brand has to be different in a way that makes a difference in a person’s life
  • There’s no PhD required to build a brand with great essence

Ep. 201: Nick Westergaard on Digital Marketing.

Doug- @DJDoug

Strickland- @NiceGuyonBiz

Nick @NickWestergaard

Quadruple Threat Up the Wazoo

  • Nick is a strategist, speaker, author and educator (teaches at Iowa)
  • Daniel Pink said, from a marketing perspective, we live in a David and Goliath world where we are the Davids
  • Publishing today is very tricky today
  • We could all use a few people and a few dollars more
    • Nobody has the marketing budget that they want for everything that they want to do
  • Even the large company guys want to engage on a personal level
  • These are scrappy times
  • The Social Brand Forum (socialbrandforum.com) - a scrappy idea that catapults marketing and community
    • There are a lot of great businesses in the Iowa City area but not a lot of event planning
    • Technology has put marketing on steroids, especially on a conference level
    • An improv mantra Nick applied to marketing:
      • Building things together, one block at a time

Common Theme in Marketing

  • Trying to do everything
    • More content/more marketing is not always better
    • Quality over quantity
    • Do not let a project be lukewarm

Ep. 186: Carrie H. Smith Dropped Corporate Business Like a Hot Potato

Doug- @DJDoug

Strickland- @NiceGuyonBiz

“Smart Marketing Consulting” - Closing the gap between where you are and where you want to be. It is all about the message, the market and then your media.

 How am I Going to Compete Outside of the Corporate World?!

 

  • The purpose of what the corporate world was doing was not fulfilling to Carrie anymore.
  • Instead of wide-net marketing, she jumped into honing in on technology and target that perfect client.
  • If does not matter what the benefits are, if you do not love what you do, it is not worth it.
  • Having a job that you hate, it takes away your motivation and energy even after hours.

 

Passion Search

 

  • Ask yourself: “If you didn’t have to make any money, what would you do?”
  • There is nothing you can do more than display your knowledge and what you’ve done to gain the trust and attention of your niche.
  • Capitalize on people trusting you. It is about creating value and not asking anything from them except for maybe a name and an e-mail address.
  • All too often, people in marketing are going up to people and first say, “Buy my stuff, buy my stuff.” There needs to be progression.

 

There are 3 key ways to grow your business:

  1. Increase the amount of customers
  2. Increase the average transaction overall
  3. Increase the average transaction per customer

 

  • Linkedin? Facebook? Twitter? Do I need to be on that?
    • The better or bigger answer is, “It depends.” Where is your niche?
  • How are you handling current customers? Are you giving value first?
  • WHO are you marketing to? Identify the specifics, try to describe the perfect client. Then use that to advertise smartly.

Jordan talks about topics like relationships, social perceptions, men and women. But as I listen to your guests, I start to get sucked in. Like KimSeltzer and Dr. Welch who was just on. People need this stuff.

Ep. 108: Super-salesman and marketer Butch Bellah and free stuff just for being a listener!

Everyone is in sales. The reason most businesses fail is not because they weren't good at their craft, it's because they aren't good at sales and marketing. Butch Bellah can help solve that.

See below for a link to get your free copy of Butch's book- The 10 Essential Habits of Sales Superstars

Here's what we learned about Butch today:

He has 40 years of sales experience.

His mantra is- Learn, practice, teach.

He wrote a "Dummies" book!- Sales Management for Dummies -http://www.amazon.com/Sales-Management-Dummies-Butch-Bellah/dp/1119094224/ref=asap_bc?ie=UTF8

And some great tips from him:

Customers buy from people they know, like and trust. The first 2 are fairly easy, but trust takes time to earn.

Don't lower your price, build your value.

Even the best in the world have coaches, you need one too.

When you teach, you are learning as well.

He just launched his coaching website http://mybizcoach.biz/

Ep. 103: Ted Rubin is a connector, relationship builder, speaker, and a really nice guy

Ted Rubin has more good advice on business than we could squeeze into 25 minutes, so we let him talk longer. Hell, Doug was begging Ted to stay on the show longer. Amazing info that you have to listen to on The Nice Guys today. The "F" bomb is dropped, Ted gets so passionate.

Here's what we learned from Ted on the Podcast today:

It's all about "RonR" - Return on Relationships #RonR

Focus on who you are and what you're saying, not on how many followers you have.

Look people in the eye digitally- Connect in the same way you would face to face.

Measure the ROI of Trust and the ROI of Loyalty, they both lead to ROI

Brands are from Mars, and consumers are from Venus.

A network gives you reach, but a community gives you power.

Get in touch with Ted:
