Interview with Brendan Hufford on SEO & Content Marketing KDS: 021

Brendan Hufford is one of those people... You know the kind I'm referring to. They show up out of the blue (well, what feels like out of the blue) and you instantly like them. Brendan showed up in my Facebook group, Content Creators, and gave a fabulous in-depth response to a question about SEO. I was humbled by his 'give' in the group and instantly asked him if he'd be willing to do a live stream about SEO, to which he said yes. Brendan completely over-delivered on the live stream, it went...


My FOMO, A Physical Product & Kickstarter KDS: 020

I know I can't be the only person who is a little floored that we're down to only 7 weeks left in 2018. This year has flown by (thankfully, it's been a rough year and an amazing year all at the same time). In many ways, I think this year has prepared me for everything that's coming, in a good way. The clarity I have in my business is unlike anything else I've felt, and I know this because of the level of focus I have right now. Victor Hugo said it best, "Nothing is as powerful as an idea...


Scaling Your Webinar with Joel Erway KDS: 019

I first heard Joel Erway speak on a live stream in the Funnelytics Facebook Group and he was talking about something I do and would like to get better at, which is webinars. During that live stream, I immediately commented to Joel that I would love to have him on the podcast, he said yes, we coordinated, recorded... and then my life went sideways. This took way too long to publish but you're in for a real treat. Like many other entrepreneurs, Joel's path to his webinar agency was anything...


Growing A Digital Agency with Paul Lacey KDS: 018

Paul Lacey is one of those people that once you get to know him you feel like you've known him forever (or wish you had). I felt like I could have talked to Paul for hours, but since we're a good 8 hours apart I thought it would be nice to let him enjoy the rest of his evening. Paul is one of the brilliant minds at Dickiebirds Studio as well as creating amazing themes for GeneratePress and now... he's creating something amazing for Beaver Builder! ROWS! We recorded this a while ago and at...


Slowing Down to Get There Faster KDS: 017

I've had a handful of conversations with friends lately who are dealing with frustration and challenges in their business. It feels like they're doing everything right: they're busy, they're doing the work, and yet they're still stuck on a hamster wheel. Tell me if this sounds familiar: You're creating content You're promoting your content You've started building a community You're really good at what you do (you're not lacking in skills) You've put together some offers ... nothing is...


Profiting with Relationship Funnels: Interview with Landon Porter KDS: 016

This is one of those episodes where I highly recommend you get a pen & paper ready or open a note-taking tool, you're going to need it. Landon Porter, of "Getting Clients Without Being Salesy" joins me on the podcast and we go deep into where marketing is heading and why 'old school marketing' methods aren't working the way they used to (can I get an Amen?). Landon and I connected earlier this year and I'm super grateful we did (although it may have been the end of 2017 now that I think of...


Talking Design with Piccia Neri of DesignGeeks KDS: 015

Publishing this episode is long overdue. Piccia and I recorded this months ago (I'm catching up on the backlog). The beauty of this though is that it doesn't matter... everything Piccia talked about is timeless, relevant, and will help you get your design skills up to speed. Piccia and I connected years ago (I can't quite remember exactly... think it was 4 or 5 years ago, but we didn't really get to know each other until this year). Piccia has an amazing background, which I realized I didn't...


Content Repurposing & My Wakeup Call KDS: 014

I think this is the first time I've started writing out my podcast post (for a solo show) without a title. For anyone who writes regularly (or somewhat regularly), you probably have your own writing process and flow for how you do things. For me, I usually have a headline in mind that will dictate the flow of the post. Not today. I have a few things I wanted to talk about in today's episode so we'll see where this takes us. An Update On The Personal Side For those of you who have been with...


More on Chatbots with Matt Staton & Matt Tims of Botpreneur KDS: 013

It's clear I'm getting a wee bit excited about chatbots. I won't inundate you guys with too much at once, but when you listen to this interview with Matt Staton & Matt Tims of Botpreneur you'll understand why I'm so excited. I haven't figured out the right combination of how and when I'm using bots, but I'm determined to find what works best for myself and my audience. Remember, chatbots create a conversation (when done correctly). That's exactly what I wanted to talk to Matt & Matt about....


Messenger Marketing with Mikael Yang of ManyChat KDS: 012

Messenger marketing is here to stay... now is the time to get in. I have to admit that I wasn't thrilled when Messenger marketing started gaining some traction last year. Not because I didn't see the value in it, but because like anything else that's new, people jump in and go 100 miles an hour without looking where they're going. There were a handful of marketers that seemed to be going all in with Messenger marketing but they hadn't really taken the time to understand the platform and how...


Funnels, Sales, & Marketing with Mike Killen KDS: 011

Every time I talk to Mike Killen I feel like I've drunk from a firehouse of awesomeness. Mike's energy and enthusiasm for what he does are infectious. Mike and I connected 5 or 6 years ago and a lot has changed in his business, which is why I wanted to have him on the podcast (and quite frankly I don't know what took me so long to get him on the show, so sorry about that Mike ;-) ). Like a lot of people, Mike started out freelancing and then moved to the agency side of things. His next step...


Running A Business When Life Goes Sideways… And My Secret Project KDS: 010

I debated about doing this episode... mainly because I'm still in the thick of things and I'm pretty raw. However, I also know that the best way of getting to the other side of things is through it. After 48 years on this planet and a lot of inner work, I've learned to tame the ego a bit and have found a lot of peace in the surrender, even if it takes me a longer than I'm comfortable with. So, fair warning: if this stuff makes you uncomfortable, then now's the time to stop listening. My...


Introducing The New Brizy Page Builder With Dimi Baitanciuc KDS: 009

I have to admit... being a huge fan of page builders, I was pretty excited to see another page builder hit the market. Some people might think we don't need another page builder for WordPress, but I truly believe that competition is good and not every page builder will work for each person. Even though many of the page builders have similar features, the UI and feel to each page builder is unique. What may work for one person will feel clunky or confusing to another. The other benefit of...


Digital Agency Life with Kronda Adair KDS:008

I guess I should give you a little warning with this episode... the audio gremlins came out in full force. The first half of the interview was done with Zencastr, then we hopped over to Skype to wrap things up, so bear with the change in the audio. That being said, I went deep in this interview with Kronda, of Karvel Digital, who shared her journey from retail jobs to getting a degree in web design, being fired for culture fit and then moving on to working for herself. One of the things that...


Why I Launched A Totally FREE Course KDS: 007

It's been a year of changes for me, all of them good (now that I'm on the other side of things, it's much easier to see the lessons and blessings). When I decided to pivot to my personal brand from The WordPress Chick, I knew my focus was going to be on content marketing and pretty much anything relative to content (tools, apps, people... whatever grabs me and is worth sharing). I had done a few different lead magnets about creating content, but they all felt sort of... forced? The value was...


Build Your Audience FIRST KDS: 006

The idea of 'Build Your Audience First' isn't new... yet so many people still think they can grow a successful business without building an audience. This is beyond my own personal opinion (although I don't have data to back this up, I simply know a lot of people who have done this and continue to do it). That being said, I thought I would try something new this week. I hosted a live stream in my Facebook group, Content Creators, with a co-host (my good friend Davinder Singh Kainth)....


Storrito App for Instagram – Interview with Max Weber KDS: 005

Yes, this is another tool I'm using and loving. Before we jump into the interview, let me just say that as much as I love watching Instagram stories, I don't always want to record video of what I'm doing because quite frankly, it's not always that interesting. AND... there's always the added issue of having to 'get ready' to be on camera (if and when you see me on camera with no makeup, it's safe to say I've had a huge growth moment). My other challenge (which I'm getting over also), is that...


When It’s Over Before It Starts & Other Life Lessons KDS: 004

So... it's taken me a little bit of time to process this and figure out how I wanted to go about sharing the news. I knew in my gut that I would probably end up doing a post, but I wasn't sure as to whether or not I would do a podcast. The more I sat with this the more I realized that a podcast episode was the way to go. SO... here I am. I'll warn you that this might get a little personal, but I figure you guys are with me for the long haul, right? I'm also a firm believer in self-awareness...


Miestro Course Platform with Justin Burns KDS: 003

I had the good pleasure of becoming friends with Justin Burns a few years ago in a mastermind. I've often said that the relationships from the mastermind are probably my biggest take away from the time, energy, and money invested. Connecting with like-minded people who wanted to do more with their business, were positive, and in it for the long run. Justin Burns is the co-founder of a new course platform called Miestro (yep, that's how it's spelled). Justin has been in the online marketing...


Growing A Facebook Group: 1 Year Later KDS: 002

I often refer to the state of Facebook Groups today as the second coming of Facebook Groups. My first Facebook Group was started in 2008 (yep, my first year in business). It was called 'The Women of Internet Marketing'. Even though I was really new to online marketing (WordPress was only 5 years old at the time, Facebook and Twitter were in their infancy and YouTube wasn't quite the powerhouse it is today), one thing was very clear... it was dominated by men. Now, here my heart. I have...
