Episode 673 – How Using Mixed Emotions Can Emotionally Charge Your Marketing Messages?

Literary theorist Christopher Booker adheres to the school of thought that there are 7 basic plots to all stories including movies, play, sitcoms, and more. They all tend to cycle the viewer through a range of emotions. But in our daily business marketing, we don't have the time or attention span to develop a plot or characters. So you can take an abbreviated mix of emotions to lead people through a journey, and get them to take action. You first have to know your audience, and what...

Episode 671 – Why You Should Treat Your Marketing Like Choosing A Winning Stock?

At one point, I thought it would be a good idea to try day trading... BOY was I wrong? I did not understand the basic concepts of how good stock purchases take targeted research.

Those are just a few of the KPIs professionals use to evaluate potential winners and losers. What I do understand is that we can use research to help...

Episode 669 – Vanity Fair, Unfair Vanity, and Vanity Metrics

I had a meeting with someone on Lunchlub named Holly. She works at Vanderbilt Medical Center in Media. We discussed how they are changing their methodologies to an email newsletter, educational content, and even Podcast to communicate with patients, doctors, and staff.

Episode 664 – Why Online Ads Can Be More Of A Gamble Like A Slot Machine?

Gambling can be a fun personal activity but has perils when it comes to business. But all too often, businesses use advertising as a way to attract customers without realizing the full concept that they may be gambling with their profits.

Episode 660 – If You Want To Grow Your Business – Network Better

During the last year and the world of working from home, I was blown away at all of the networking groups I was able to find online. Some of them had upwards of 100 people at a Zoom meeting. Networking has been a tool that I have used for years, but it's taught me lessons about which groups constitute great and profitable networking, and which are just wish marketing.

Meetings and Networking? Notifications From Social...
