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...


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...


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...


2017: The Year of Self-Awareness, Content & Goodbyes WPCP: 173

This is one of those years that felt like it dragged on and flew by at the same time. Although I think by the time December rolls around I seem to say that every year... how about you? This was probably one of the biggest years for me in my business in terms of what has changed, which is pretty exciting. It was also the least amount of income I've earned in a long time... as well as being the most fun I've had since I started my business. Why is that? Let's jump into the Self Awareness...


Photography & WordPress with Scott Wyden Kivowitz of Imagely WPCP: 172

I know I keep saying this, but this is one of those interviews that probably should have happened sooner. I've been following Scott Wyden Kivowitz for a while and finally reached out to have him on the show. Scott works for Imagely, formerly known as Photocrati. If you're not familiar with Imagely, it's the premier company supporting photographers with WordPress. You're probably familiar with one of their most popular plugins, NextGen Gallery. I remember when Photocrati purchased NextGen...


E-commerce, WordPress Summits & Watches with Jan Koch WPCP: 171

Talking with Jan Koch was one of those interviews that seems like it should have happened much, much sooner. I've been following Jan Koch for a few years on social media, we have quite a few mutual friendships and for one reason or another, we simply hadn't connected sooner. I'm so glad we finally made this interview happen. AND... I'm going to go ahead and give a little bit of a prediction here and I think we're going to be hearing a lot more from Jan as an authority/influencer. But...


Personalized Marketing with Matt Barnett of Bonjoro WPCP: 170

I have a confession to make before we get into the interview with Matt. I was SUPER hesitant about using Bonjoro when I first came across it because I was still in my "I don't want to be on camera" phase. For the longest time, I didn't really think I needed to video, or should I say, be on video. I was used to doing screencasts of tutorials and never really thought about doing video with me on camera (I won't bother trying to dissect that in this post). Fast forward to this past year and...


Content As Equity & An Update on Life WPCP: 169

It's been way too long since I've published a solo show and I miss you guys. Even though life has been a little crazy I knew I needed to stop and take the time to publish a solo show and update you all on what's been happening. I know I've been a little quiet lately and I'm super appreciative that you guys have stuck with me. Before we get into Content as Equity, I think I'll start with the update on life and what's been going on that has created my semi-absent state. I'm warning you now...


Brian Kurtz on Advertising, List Building & Relationship Capital WPCP: 168

I was having a conversation with my friend Lee Jackson the recently on a Facebook live stream and we were talking about how sometimes it feels like we're 'cheating' when we're podcasting because we get to spend an hour with these brilliant minds and it's almost like getting a one-on-one mentoring session with them. That was exactly how I felt the entire time I was talking with Brian Kurtz. It's been a long time since I've connected with someone new, who I instantly respected, and thought...


One Click Upsells for WooCommerce with Chris Mason of WooCurve WPCP: 167

I have a little confession to make before we get into the podcast with Chris Mason of WooCurve. One of the products sold through WooCurve, Handsome Checkout, was something I had thought about creating with my LeadSurveys business partner, Gordan, about a year and a half ago. Then we pivoted to LeadSurveys (which is good because I'm super excited about LeadSurveys, but that's another conversation). Needless to say, WooCurve has created two amazing products for WooCommerce users that are...


Creating Content with Kyle Gray and The Story Engine WPCP: 166

I was introduced to Kyle from my friend Tom Morkes (who I need to get on the podcast still, he's brilliant at what he does and is a stellar connector) and responded like a little kid with who was just given a new puppy! Because my happy place is content and content creation, I was thrilled to get to talk to Kyle who has a brilliant book and was also partly responsible for growing WP Curve with their content strategy (he took over for Dan Norris when Dan got too busy). The more I dig into...


Creating Systems & Processes with Jürgen Strauss of Innovabiz WPCP: 165

This episode is brought to you by my sponsor, Content Snare This podcast interview is long overdue (we recorded a few months ago) and I'm excited to finally share this with you. I had the good fortune of connecting Jürgen Strauss a few years back through a mutual friend. Jürgen is one of those people who instantly makes you feel at ease and is a true pleasure to talk with. He also has a brilliant understanding of processes and systems, how to grow a team (through outsourcing), and how to...


Content Bottlenecks and Designing to Delight with Christine Thatcher WPCP: 164

This episode is brought to you by our sponsor, ContentSnare Anyone who has ever worked with clients to create their website can tell you that the hardest part of the process tends to be getting the content from the client to put into the website. My guest today, Christine Thatcher, and her business partner, Michelle Hunter, have solved this problem and are now showing other people how to do the same. What's fun is that I connected with Christine through our mutual friend (and sponsor of...


Live Streaming Success with Ross Brand WPCP: 163

I have a confession to make. I was SUPER hesitant to jump into live streaming. For a few reasons. The first reason was that I would have to "get ready", as in, do my hair & makeup every day (O.K., technically I don't have to do that. I get that most people really don't care if what you look like if the content is good, but this was my hang up). Another reason was that I didn't want to just jump on at talk at people. I wanted to have a strategy, plan it a bit, and make sure I had some time to...
