Marketing in 2020 - Think Differently with Mark Schaefer

Marketing in 2020 - Think Differently with Mark Schaefer

December 23, 2019

Sometimes someone comes along who is asking us to think a bit unconventionally... And when research backs it up, you have yourself a pretty darned good book... That book is Marketing Rebellion, and that author is our episode 46 guest Mark Schaefer!

"The most human company wins" is the subtitle to his most recent book, and our conversation in this show centers in part around the need to be HUMAN in business, and get out and actually TALK to people in this digital age.  

Our guest...

  • Mark Schaefer
    BusinessesGrow.com 
    Keynote speaker, marketing consultant, author of Marketing Rebellion, executive branding coach

    Mark’s company offers consulting services, training, corporate workshops, and strategy development with an emphasis in social media, content marketing, and digital marketing strategy.

    His services stand out because of his deep experience across many industries, his ability to connect the dots between strategy and reality, and his background in organizational development, which allows him to design strategies that are practical and achievable.

    He works with a variety of companies ranging from Fortune 500 companies to start-ups and solo entrepreneurs.

You might think poor quality content is a bad idea... But Mark's take is that "there's a business case for crap." Megan doesn't really agree with him on that, and we have an interesting conversation around it. We do 100% agree marketers need to spend more time face-to-face with our customers! 

As you're thinking about how to approach things entering in 2020, this episode will give you some valuable insights to consider!

Guest Dan Gingiss is an absolute pro. His career with customer experience and marketing makes him the perfect guest to speak on this topic!

From his Forbes article"Customer experience and social media are part of a 'continuous cycle' whereby they each feed the other. Offline experiences are shared online, and then a brand's response – and the learnings it takes from customer interactions – are incorporated back into the experience."

Consistent Content Creation with Demian Ross

Consistent Content Creation with Demian Ross

October 28, 2019

This dude has been the picture of consistency for the last (as of this publishing) 587 days in-a-row!! He has recorded and published a video EVERY. Single. Day. Can you imagine doing anything that consistently?! 

He has a lot going on, and we have a ton to learn from him in terms of content development. Plus, he's hilarious... we just might make you laugh more on this episode than on any other one!

Our guest...

  • Demian Ross - Demian was with us on Episode 21 - on being a Digital Nomad

    Road to 1,000 - Rootless Lifestyle - Plan D

    Demian is currently a Digital Nomad, and has been traveling the country in a 42-foot fifth wheel since June of 2017... and has logged more than 40,000+ miles.

    When he started this road trip he was working at Social Media Examiner as part of the sales team for Social Media Marketing World, and decided he needed a creative outlet... So he came up with an idea to record 300 videos in 365 days. He called the series "ROAD TO 300"… And after recording 300 videos in a row he decided to stretch the series to the "ROAD TO 1000" and is was on DAY 583 in a row when we recorded this show.

    Since the last time he was with us, Demian started a lifestyle brand called ROOTLESS LIVING with the goal to help teach and inspire people to embrace the digital nomad lifestyle. He also has a podcast called PLAN D where he talks about his struggles to start a company while living on the road.

    He's also the proud father of 4 adult humans.

Do "subs" matter? Why do we care about vanity metrics? How can you be so consistent on one platform, and not on others? He is doing a lot, and has so much more in store. If you aren't motivated by this show, we will be shocked. Get ready to learn AND laugh.
