    Aftercast / The power of a selfie 🤳 and why they'll work for you

    Aftercast / The power of a selfie 🤳 and why they'll work for you

    Have you ever wondered why the word influencer and selfie always go together?  


    I'm not going to dig into the whole influencer world. Rather I want to understand why, for this particular breed of marketer, the weapon of choice is the selfie, or the self portrait.  


    Rationally it all just seems like a boat load of vanity. Why don't they just put all the focus on the product instead of on themselves?


    But if they've got it all wrong - why are they influencers? Why do they have influence? Why does what they do work so well. And more importantly - why isn't every business owner doing it?


    Stick around and I'll tell you.

    How to build a strong freelance personal brand while being an a-list employee

    How to build a strong freelance personal brand while being an a-list employee

    Balancing a full-time role as an agency employee with being one of the best-known freelancers in the world is an incredible balancing act. I know from experience as an agency owner, how challenging it can be when team members also freelance, so this week I caught up with Tony Christiansen to ask him how he pulled it off.


    Tony's area of focus is Facebook ads and while working for one of the U.S's most high profile agencies, he's also very well known in his own right. We talk about this as well as Facebook ad strategies, how small businesses can make money go further and about some simple tactics you can employ today to start winning big.

    Aftercast / What's the best kind of digital marketing training?

    Aftercast / What's the best kind of digital marketing training?

    Digital marketing skills are in demand for a good reason. Money flows where attention goes and most of the time your attention is online. Because of this business small and large are willing to pay for the support they need to compete.


    Specialist digital marketing businesses are thriving all over the world. But often there's a problem. A lot of socialists work in silos and it can be hard for the client to discriminate or prioritise. Software vendors offering marketing automation platforms compete for attention. There are more methodologies, frameworks and hacks than you can shake a stick at. It's a confusing and noisy landscape with no apparent clear path for the business owner.

    How to scale your business without burning out, with Andrew Sillitoe

    Burnout is a something you hear about but would you know it if it hit you? Would you notice if you lost your way and didn't get fired up about what you're doing any more? Andrew Sillitoe has built his business around helping business owners scale without burnout. Yes - scaling a business takes hard work and tenacity - but you can do it without embracing all the stereotypes we all know.


    In this week's episode Andrew walks me through his business, how he built it and how he works with clients and unpacks the four keys to scaling without burnout. I loved this interview and I hope you will too.

    Aftercast / Why people are scared 😱 to post on social and how to fix it.

    Being scared to post on social media is more normal than you'd think. When you open any social media app you'd think everyone was posting but the truth is that the majority of social media content is posted by a small number of people.


    If you're nervous about posting on social media then stick around - this is going to help you.
