Episode 614 – In Order To Change Minds, You Have To Overcome Heard Immunity

10/19/2020
WARNING: This is part story, part lesson, part RANT! It's bad enough that we have to put up with robocalls, political ads, and polls, and just random hang-ups, but when a real salesperson calls and just won't take no for an answer, it's hard not to be angry and rude. I understand that people have a job to do, but I have learned over the years that closing a sale is more about listening than just talking. That was not the case with one call (actually multiple and a LinkedIn message from the...

Episode 612 – How To Help Marketing Build A Bridge To Better Sales?

10/12/2020
Training our new dog Layla (who is 11 months) is a challenge. Luckily, she responds to food, or better yet - Treats! We have multiple treats for different training activities. We have one for when she goes on her walks, one for when she goes potty outside, and one type when she gets to get in her crate to go to sleep at night. The one thing I hate is certain kinds of packaging. Some of the treats have the zip lock style closure, which often takes precision to close and open. One of her bags...

10/5/2020
If we took a way-back machine to December 2019, you probably never would have guessed that you would be networking almost 100% online? Zoom has been a savior and a bain for many, but here we are living in a virtual networking world. One-on-ones are one of the best ways to grow your business, but they are often misunderstood and often end with no real plan or outcome. The best way to conduct one-on-one meetings is to sell nothing. You want to help create a relationship that can help your...

Episode 608 – Finding The Influencers to Make Your Content Go Viral

9/28/2020
In his book, "The Tipping Point", Malcolm Gladwell discusses how viruses spread. We are not only talking about the medical kind, but the ones that influence people and culture. Viruses usually start small and grow slowly, but there becomes a tipping point where it srats to gain momentum to the point where it's hard to contain and control. It's often through some sort of influencer who amplifies the effects. Malcolm explains his theory about three types of influencers who become the creators...

Networking has changed and so have our businesses. If you are like me, we spend a lot of time on Zoom. I am here to tell you Zoom Fatigue is REAL! Meeting online increases our cognitive load because several of its features take up a lot of conscious capacity... and add caring for a puppy or a child into that? Some of the new people I am meeting are wanting me to introduce people to them that are in my network or LinkedIn contact, so they can try to sell them. That can be a bad idea and burn...

9/14/2020
Our last dog (Buddy Guy) never really would destroy his toys. Our new dog Layla is a completely different animal. She believes her purpose in live to find and spit the stuffing out of every toy you give her. She works the toy to find the string she can pull that will unlock the treasure that she considers success... find and pull out all the stuffing, and then move onto the next toy. Customers can be the same. We need to understand that they have a past that affects their current decisions...

Episode 602 – How New Customers Can Be Like Getting A New Puppy

9/7/2020
On a past podcast, I discussed the crazy idea we had of trying to adopt a dog and the lessons learned through the process. Well, a week ago we left downtown Chicago with a new 11-month-old puppy named Layla in the back of my SUV. We have adopted 5 rescue dogs over the last few years ranging from 3 to 11 years old. They were fairly well trained, housebroken, and generally good dogs. Adopting a puppy is a whole different ballgame. I get to walk her 3-4 times a day, so I started listening to...

Episode 600 – How And Why To Build A Golden Rolodex

8/31/2020
Do you remember using a Rolodex? It was a device that was round or a slotted platform that contained index cards with sorted contact information in alphabetical tabs. We used to keep all our important business contacts on those for quick access. Although you may not have one of those on your desk anymore like the old one? You still have one on your desk in the form of a phone or desktop computer. You still want to keep track of four main groups: clients, prospects, vendors, and referrals....

But with everything changing so fast, there was no road map to follow. So he did what anyone would do in his position... he grabbed a co-host and started a podcast. Digital Dads lasted nearly three years and...

Every marketing communications should have a common goal: to create a human-to-human conversation. It could happen online, on the phone, or in person, but that should be the purpose. Sometimes we make that process to complex upfront. Have your methods and systems changed with the changes in the ways we are doing business today? You want to make it simple to start a conversation.
