#025 – Effective email marketing - The Marketing Menu Podcast

Email marketing should be an essential part of any business marketing strategy. But many people struggle with knowing how to do it or what to say to ensure their emails are opened amongst all the spam. Recent research states that open rates for promotional email still averages 22-25%. This is, of course, good news as it means that email is still a powerful marketing channel you can use to communicate with your prospects or customers. In this podcast, we share our experience about: why email...


#024 – Why entering awards is good for business marketing - The Marketing Menu Podcast

As businesses, we all like receiving recognition from our customers that we are good at what we do, and it may come in the form of testimonials, recommendations or verbal thanks. But how about taking it a step further and actually entering for an 'official' award? The marketing potential for being shortlisted for an award, even if you don't win, can be a great way to raise your profile and be seen amongst your business peers and/or competition. In this podcast, we discuss: What business...

#022 – Using Video Marketing In Your Business - The Marketing Menu Podcast

We have talked about the rising importance of using video marketing as part of the marketing toolbox on several podcasts. So we thought it would be good to go into a little more detail about why video use is growing, what type of content could be included and what equipment people may need and how best to plan for video marketing in business. We bring in our resident expert, Andrew Plant of Andrew Plant Photography, to share his expertise on how to make a professional looking video. In...

We're delighted to welcome Mark Gracey here to today's podcast and he's going to talk to us all about GDPR, which is General Data Protection Regulation and how GDPR affects marketing.

Guide to podcasting – 20 - The Marketing Menu Podcast

Today we’re going to give you a quick guide on how to set up a podcast channel. So Liz why are we talking about this today? Well, I was at a networking event last week and interestingly I was talking to someone about our podcast and she mentioned that she’d been interested in doing one but had decided not to do so as it was so expensive. So I went on to explain how podcasting isn’t costly, which is one reason why we got into it in the first place. But I did have to explain how time heavy...


Creating a Savvy Social Media Policy – 019 - The Marketing Menu Podcast

Hi everyone, and welcome to the Marketing Menu with me, Liz, and Nicky. And a slight change of plan listeners, we had planned to talk about radio and TV advertising this week but in light of Twitter's announcement, we've decided to talk about why your business should have a Social Media Policy and how to create one. Yes, we're not convinced, are we Liz, about the Twitter 280 characters? No, but we'll reserve judgment until we see how some of the bigger players operate. My fear is that the...

How to marketing your scrummy book – 015 - The Marketing Menu Podcast

Well, as I’ve been busy writing an e-book, and I also took a call from a new author the other day, I thought it may be useful to talk about how to market a book. I imagine a lot of listeners have thought about writing a book and as we both have experience in this area, it would be good to share what we know. Great idea! So, writing the book is just the start. There is so much more after that. But firstly, we need to look at why write a book in the first place. I have heard it said, and I...


Tasty Brand Stories – 014 - The Marketing Menu Podcast

We thought following on from Podcast 007 which was all about Building a Brand, we’d have a look at some good, and bad, examples of this and what we can learn and take away for our own businesses. Let’s get started then and perhaps it might be useful to just recap on what a Brand is? Branding is your statement to the customer about what you do. You want people to know what they can expect not only from you and you need to think how you want your product or service to be conveyed. It's...


Writing A Creative Brief – 013 - The Marketing Menu Podcast

What are we talking about in this week's podcast? Now, I thought it'd be a really good idea to talk to listeners about how to brief a creative, by which I mean how to ensure you effectively get what you want when you are designing a new website, setting up some videos, or even doing some design and print. I don't know about you but a clearly defined brief can have a host of benefits to a) the person commissioning the work and b) the creative working with that client. Copyright The...


Gaining Fabulous Feedback – 011 - The Marketing Menu Podcast

In our previous podcast on customer service, we talked about the importance of maintaining your customer service levels. So, I thought perhaps we could keep on the theme by thinking a little more about how to check in to see how well you are doing from time to time, and then how to use this information in your marketing activity.

Cracking Customer Service – 010 - The Marketing Menu Podcast

This week, we're focusing on what makes Cracking Customer Service - one of our favourite subjects! Yes, it’s true, we’re a bit ‘passionate’ about it, aren’t we, to quote that overused phrase. But we are in all seriousness, as listeners will gather as the podcast goes on. Excellent customer service should be at the core of every business, and there is no excuse in this day and age for falling at this hurdle. Yet so many businesses do, don’t they? Yes, they do, and it drives me nuts. I’ve...


Peachy Public Relations – 009 - The Marketing Menu Podcast

In this week's podcast, we're talking about Public Relations. Let's start with clarifying exactly what Public Relations is and where it sits with marketing. Interesting you should say that actually because when I was studying for my PR qualification, the tutor said that PR people say marketing is part of PR and marketing people say it's part of marketing. So which is it then? OK, this is a bit lengthy but this is how the Chartered Institute of Public Relations explain it: "Public Relations...


Scrumptious Social Media – 008 - The Marketing Menu Podcast

We're talking social media which weirdly eight podcasts in you may have thought we have concentrated on a bit by now. But I guess we know our listeners are familiar with social media as it is now central to business. So first I'd like to talk about the differences between using these tools for business and in a personal context. Then I'd like to explore damage control and finally look at small business social trends and highlight some tools listeners may like to consider. Wow, that seems...


Building A Brand – 007 - The Marketing Menu Podcast

This week's podcast which is all about Building a Brand. The word ‘brand' is talked about so much now but I think there is still confusion over what it actually means, particularly for people who are just starting up in business. So, perhaps we can help clarify what brand is exactly and what branding actually means. Great stuff. I know several of my clients have thought that having a logo was the brand. That's right, a lot of people do. But there is so much more to it than that. A logo is...


Listeners Q & A – 006 - The Marketing Menu Podcast

Today’s Marketing Menu Podcast is so exciting – we’ve had questions from the listeners themselves! Brilliant! That’s what we’ve been encouraging everyone to do. Let’s get straight into it then. What’s the first issue? Right, so we have a question from Leanne. How much should you spend on a marketing budget? Copyright The Marketing Menu 2017 | All rights reserved | If you wish to copy of distribute this content please get in touch with Good question! And one that...


How to network and build trust and rapport – 005 - The Marketing Menu Podcast

Today’s Marketing Menu Podcast is all about the sometimes thorny area of business networking, and how to get it right so that you build trust and rapport with potential clients and contacts. Why’s it thorny? Well, I think it terrifies an awful lot of people so I guess I’m really keen to either help listeners who have yet to try it out or to help those who still feel uncomfortable. I know it took me a good few months to actually say I enjoyed it. Certainly, the networking world has exploded...
