  • Find out who is doing big things in your industry and get to know them
  • Use your network to introduce you to clientele
  • Take it upon yourself to educate people in your industry
  • Don’t wait until you’ve got the certification or that diploma, engage in your community now
  • Make yourself visible and present at every industry event you go to

Ep. 185: Doug says Carlos Gil knows that Marketing People Don’t Know Shit, your Customer Knows Everything

Carlos- @CarlosGil83

Doug- @DJDoug

Strickland- @NiceGuyonBiz

Carlos Gil, Self-Taught Marketer - “Marketing People Don’t Know Shit, it is Your Customer that Knows Everything”

  • In this generation, most marketers are force feeding their agendas to customers. They are not aware of the conversations that are happening on social media.
  • You build character when you get told, “no” but you also gain a lot of relationships.
  • How do we get people to think like a customer?
    • Think: “Would your own sales tactics drive you to buy anything?”
  • People are the true marketers, so teach them about the value that your product can give them. Brand Loyalty.
  • A lot of marketers see social media as a way to force feed content. Even with this new school avenue, old school rules STILL APPLY. People really want to engage with their friends on SOCIAL MEDIA, not to see what your new special deal is.
  • The key word in social media is “social”, you have to have conversations. This form of connections give businesses an opportunity to LISTEN.
  • Social media is like a piggy bank - interactions are like the pennies, nickels and dimes. The free value that you provide  for others are the larger bills that will add up long term.
  • Content needs to be informative, engaging and fun.
  • Think of your snapchat as your own private Youtube channel! Over 14% of U.S. snapchat users are over the age of 45.
  • There is no one out there better than the next guy, it is all about putting in the time and the work. Be a practitioner.
  • The best thing to do is to be open and upfront. It is up to you to train yourself to reach the next level.
  • If an employer is not supportive of your growth and development, that is not the right place to be.

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.

Ep. 24 Your Social Media Campaign. 5 Essential Elements

In order to be successful, any business, no matter the size, should focus its attention on building a social media campaign with the following components in mind:

THE LIST- It’s a great idea to start here because any campaign, even an awesome one, will go absolutely nowhere if there is no one to promote a product or service to

BRAND- Would I know who you are if I saw your logo? Do you have a signature saying or slogan that’s easily recognizable?

CONTENT- What are you doing to be an expert in your industry? If you become the expert, others will point to you and they will promote your products as well.

CALL TO ACTION- When you create your message or your content, you must tell people what you want them to do.

HUMAN ELEMENT- Above all else, people like to feel as though they are connecting with other people, not machines.
