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...


Stepping Back and Starting Over with Jon Perez KDS: 001

There's nothing like having a conversation with a friend and pulling back the curtain on all the things you've tried, the journey, and lessons you've learned. Jon was one of the first guests I had on The WordPress Chick podcast (one of the first 10 episodes) and I instantly felt like he was my 'brother from another mother'. He is easily one of the people I have the most fun with. We started the episode by rolling back to when we first connected and our first venture together. We were both...


Hello, Goodbye, and What’s Coming KDS: 000

It's been way too long since I've had a conversation with you guys via the podcast. This has been a long time in the works and I have to give a HUGE Thank You to all of you for your patience. Since this is the first 'official' episode of 'The Kim Doyal Show', we'll start with the hello, but this will probably go in a few different directions but I promise I'll bring it full circle for you. Many of you have been listening to the podcast when it was 'The WordPress Chick' podcast, and thank you...


Funnel Hacking Live 2018: Recap, Thoughts, and 2 HUGE Epiphanies WPCP: 177

Last week I went to Funnel Hacking Live, 2018, in Orlando, Florida. This is the annual ClickFunnels conference ( I had attended the first year they did the event, then skipped the last two years). It had been a few years since I had attended any type of marketing event and when the tickets came out for this event it felt right. This will be my future gauge for whether or not I go to an event: if it feels right when I think about going (no wavering), I'm going to go. No overthinking it. The...


Content Creators Summit & Some Updates WPCP: 176

Man. I am SUPER excited to be back for a solo show. It's been a long couple of months and I want to give you a little update before we jump into creating content (and why you MUST be creating content). Since I haven't done a solo show in a while this might be a little longer update than normal, but it hopefully it will be worth it. I will give you a little warning beforehand that this is probably going to be pretty heavy on the mindset and how it can set you up for achieving what it is you...


Tori Reid On Building A Brand With Content & A Facebook Group WPCP:175

One of the things I love most about having a podcast is connecting with my guests. Sometimes it's through someone else I know, sometimes I've just reached out to have them on the show and other times the guest has reached out to me first. The story of how I connected with Tori is a true testament to building actual relationships with people online. Tori has done a lot of writing (you'll hear more about her writing skills and journey in the episode), was writing a guest post on Huffington...


Shark Tank, E-commerce & Alpha Dogs with Arlene Battishill WPCP: 174

The way I connected with Arlene Battishill is a perfect example of the power of what we do online. A friend had mentioned Arlene to me and I happened to catch a live stream she was doing where she was talking about the book, Expert Secrets, by Russell Brunson. Many of you have heard me talk about what a game changer that book was for me (I've read it twice and have gone through all of the exercises in the book, I highly recommend it). Anyway, I hopped on the live stream and simply commented...
