We have been searching for someone to speak with about crypto and NFT’s for a while, and it’s nice to circle back around to this subject with Joel Comm. He’s one of the original internet marketers, and he’s a guy who sees trends and has a pretty good hit rate. This is one of those rabbit holes that we’ve gotten into outside of the podcast, and now is a great time to be aware of all the tech and utilities that are associated with a lot of these things. There are so many different ways to use the blockchain technology, and we’d love it if you would let us know if this is something you'd like us to talk about more in future episodes.

Nothing in this episode is financial advice by the way, but it’s valuable to have conversations about it. Joel has been online for years, and he pivots fast and launches on a technology where he can have fun. You will get some great ideas on how Joel approaches tech. The way he explains his pivots is similar to the way we’ve done things as well, as we find little things we are interested in, then we explore it and love to share what we have learned with others. He also dives into the future of NFT’s, so many different ways to use blockchain technology and some of his favorite alt coins. Once you have listened, check out our chats with Mike Koenigs and Archit Batlaw for more insights into what the future holds for technology and business.

I don’t think there’s any true visionary aspect to it, it’s just that way I’m wired, I tend to pay attention to what’s happening and dabble.” - Joel Comm

 

Some Topics We Discussed Include:

  • The secret sauce behind Joel’s successful life
  • The best kept secret in the NFT world
  • Red flags to look out for in the crypto world
  • A new internet network and how you can be a part of it
  • How to find alt coins to invest in
  • So many other options with NFT’s other than artwork

Matt is dropping another solo episode today, and he is going to be talking about some cool conference hacks that will help you with outreach and making connections. Live events are happening again and we just returned from the Traffic & Conversion Summit. He will be sharing some things that we learned over time about how to be the most effective at these conferences and how to get the most out of them. 

He shares a few hacks about how to connect with people and build our influence around the booth. Whether it be with the speakers, attendees, or exhibitors, we really like to network with as many people as possible and do it in a way where you really build a deep connection. Once you’re done, check out chats with Steve Sims that we mentioned and Michael Trainer as well for more insights into making awesome connections to propel your business.

You’ll get their email and once again, you have just opened the door. You’ve just kicked in that reciprocation principle, you’ve just given them a reason to reciprocate and you’ve just given them a reason to remember you as well.” - Matt Wolfe

 

Some Topics We Discussed Include:

  • Connecting with everyone at the event, and not just attendees
  • Why we, as a sponsor, love connecting with other sponsors!
  • How to connect with folks that you might think are unreachable
  • How to use photos and videos for outreach
  • Exporting your contacts for use in future emails
  • How to get people onto your podcast
  • Using the event app - this makes for easy outreach!

It was a true pleasure and honor to have Dr. Robert Cialdini on the show today, author of one of the most well-known books that many of our guests have referenced. When we got into marketing and entrepreneurship, one of the first books we read was his Influence, which explained the principles of how to execute what we put out into the world. Now with this updated, expanded version, it has been blowing our minds in terms of how practical it is, especially with a brand new principle added. Dr. Cialdini showed us how to get the ethical ‘yes’ and use these persuasion tactics in a very ethical way. 

He also discusses the ethical use of scarcity, with limitations on the number of the product, as well as countdown timers. He also talks about how he did not write his famous book for marketers, he wrote it as a book to learn how to avoid being influenced by others. Some other topics we chat about include the Unity Principle and understanding how you look at things differently when you identify with others in the same group. We also talked about the trust factor, and when you take the power away from the buyer by sharing the bad stuff first to create trust and a bond. We have shared our struggles with our guests and on our Therapy Sessions, and we have found this to be very powerful. Lastly, we had an opportunity to ask some questions from our audience, so listen in if yours was included. After you’ve delved into this episode be sure to check out our show that we mentioned about branding as well as our chat with Neil Patel who also knows a thing or two about growing your brand in an ethical way.

People who are successful have recognized how these principles work at some level. What they often don’t recognize is how to optimize them, and the steps to take that not only activate the principle but maximize its impact in a situation.” - Dr. Robert Cialdini

Some Topics We Discussed Include:

  • The universal things taught to businesses in order to be successful
  • Why Dr. Cialdini’s book was not meant to be the bible for internet marketers
  • If you have this one particular kind of authority, no one can beat you as a communicator
  • An interesting study about showing your expertise
  • The magic of sharing your weaknesses
  • How to use this one word to get someone to trust you from the very first meeting
  • How to implement scarcity in situations where there really is none
  • What to tell people if you are early in the game

Mandy McEwen from ModGirlMarketing.com, brought the goods today as this episode has a boatload of tactics on how to connect and showcase your brand on LinkedIn. When Mandy told us that only 1% of users are actively posting on that platform, it really opened up our eyes to the possibilities. While LinkedIn may not be the answer for everyone, chances are your audience is on there. To be successful on LinkedIn, you really want to do what everyone else is not doing, i.e. acting like a human being without constantly pitching. 

Mandy talks about some cool tips to dial in your profile to make you stand out as an influencer leader and how there are different features on the mobile app which you can optimize. She also discusses how her own clients have grown without even posting, but just by engaging. You can create that closed-loop system with comments and posts, plus she got tactical in regards to what the LinkedIn algorithm really loves. There are also some tips on how to post documents, and use LinkedIn Navigator to fine-tune your feed. If you want to get additional reach, connect with the people you want and appear as a thought leader, check out all the ideas she shares. Afterward, round out your networking and LinkedIn know-how by checking out our previous episodes with Trevor Turnbull and Joshua B. Lee.

We all have personal brands, whether you want it or not, especially entrepreneurs. Really anyone with a LinkedIn profile has a personal brand so you might as well start owning it.” - Mandy McEwen

Some Topics We Discussed Include:

  • How to really succeed with LinkedIn (and it’s not as hard as you think)
  • The “Don’t List” of what not to do reach LinkedIn outreach
  • How to be seen as the industry expert without having to create a ton of unique content
  • Leverage these hacks to curate your own content easily
  • Which types of posts LinkedIn prefers the most
  • How to use LinkedIn to make you look more like an influencer
  • A super easy hack to make you stand out
  • Yet another business idea that we would use if you create it
  • The results that you can get just from leaving one comment on a post
  • Mandy’s key takeaways from her Traffic & Conversion talk

BJ Fogg, PhD, author of Tiny Habits and TinyHabits.com is on the show today! We have been immersed lately in understanding changes and our own habits, which have led to some self-sabotage at times. BJ talks about the concept of breaking the chain and how it can be detrimental to your progress. If your habit is too big, it can be hard to build up the momentum to continue. Plus, celebrating micro wins can be a huge motivator and they can come with every action that you do.

BJ talked about his mission in spreading that ripple effect that will pass on to others, similar to how we love having fun while recording. He also gave us some real-life examples of creating tiny habits that stuck, such as how he was able to shed weight easily and how he starts his day in the right way to set his mind up for success. Still want more? Go check out our previous conversations with Anthony Trucks and Erin Pheil for more tricks to get you unstuck with some simple questions and quick tactics.

The best system whether it’s weight loss, sleeping better, or being more productive, is matching yourself with behaviors that will take you to that outcome, and these behaviors should be ones that you already want to do.” - BJ Fogg, PhD

Some Topics We Discussed Include:

  • How one way of raising kids helps them to foster a sense of accomplishment and be goal orientated
  • How emotions create the habits
  • Breaking down the Fogg Behavior Model
  • The Maui Habit and celebrating life
  • BJ’s easy method for weight loss
  • Stopping the derailment of habits when your environment changes
  • The simple act of celebrating even the smallest of actions
  • Breaking the habit myths (hint: repetition does not create a habit)

This episode is going to be a great extension of what we have been chatting about in the last few weeks. Also, since we’ve been talking a lot about branding, we are back to branding these episodes as a Therapy Session once again. There’s been some great opportunities that we have been discussing for a while, specifically in the creator economy. We now see our company as a media company rather than just a podcast. We also know there are those listeners who are not necessarily trying to create a media brand, so we wanted to speak to that audience. If you know that the creator economy is getting bigger, there’s never been a better time to figure out how to sell the shovels to that industry without having to be an influencer. 

We talk about the opportunities that we see in the creator economy and some cool stats that compare it to the gig economy. We also drop some insight into how you, as an entrepreneur can use this opportunity. Once you become aware of where the money and attention is flowing, you can position yourself and ride that wave with the creators. It’s a smart approach and we’ll talk about some ways where it’s not you building the media company, but you can be the specialist to provide your services to those on the rise, even positioning yourself for rev deals and partnership. Once you listened, be sure to check out our chats with Gary Henderson and Travis Chappell for tips on how to make connections and network with influencers on a level playing field.

Position yourself properly and strategically - anyone can do that now with the creator/influencer economy.” - Joe Fier

The fact that each one of these things has so many subtasks, is a huge opportunity for digital marketers who want to go and specialize in one of those. Just look at YouTube, and look at one of the tasks you’ve got to do for YouTube. There’s a business there that you can go and replicate for people over and over again.” - Matt Wolfe

Some Topics We Discussed Include:

  • Examples of opportunities that never existed before, which you can specialize in and build a business around
  • Some interesting stats on where the creator economy is headed
  • A look behind the scenes of how we are building our media company
  • Generalists vs. specialists in the agency world, and how the pandemic has switched things up
  • Ideas on how to leverage the creator economy 
  • Steal one of our business ideas and run with it!
  • How to present a no-brainer deal to a creator, and turn it into a rev share deal

On today’s show, we are chatting with Brian Bogert, of BrianBogert.com, who has a wealth of perspectives, and we’ll definitely do a round two, as he opened up so many loops for us. He’s got so many crazy experiences that have happened and shaped who he is. We talk about podcasting and some things that we didn’t even know which we know you will find helpful. Brian also chatted about his perspective in regards to mindset vs. tactics, and our survey that we put out last year, which we now know is not that cut and dry, and actually has a few layers to those results. 

He’s got such great insights into triggers, and how to embrace the pain to avoid suffering, and gave us some real-life examples. The beauty of this conversation is showing how we can be blind to some things until they show up. We did talk a little about imposter syndrome and how we get it sometimes around tangents on the show if we don’t think we can add to the conversation. Brian was able to enlighten us since we now know to just say what we are thinking and awaken the sleeping giant in ourselves, which is very refreshing. There were so many a-ha moments in this conversation, that we will definitely be having Brian back for round two. In the meantime, you may enjoy our chats with Gabby Bernstein and JaMarr Johnson where we chat about how to get into a flow and get yourself on the best track.   

Typically what’s preventing us from being exactly who we want to be, reaching our potential, and having the impact on the world we desire... guess what - it’s us.” - Brian Bogert

Some Topics We Discussed Include:

  • How the recent events over the last year have created a boom for podcasting
  • The magic of valuable sound bites that convert to attention and downloads
  • Redefining the patterns in your life that have been holding you back
  • When we surveyed our audience on Tactics vs. Mindset and how they are not mutually exclusive
  • Recognizing who we are as humans and defining mental toughness
  • The importance of knowing someone’s prime narrative to communicate with them in the best way possible
  • The stuff that no one is talking about in regards to changing the patterns in our own life
  • Check out Matt’s eloquent thought process on reacting to the metaphysical nature of the conversation
  • A new framework on how to view imposter syndrome
  • Recognizing pain and suffering to go forth to fulfilling our destiny
