    5 Secrets to Getting Elected by Your Best Customers

    5 Secrets to Getting Elected by Your Best Customers

    This week on the Podcast, Dan and Mike dove into the wild world of politics and what it can teach entrepreneurs about getting loyal "voters" - aka customers!
    You're not going to believe some of Dan's insights. Like why he says politics is pure entrepreneurship... the slim margins that tip elections and how those apply to sales... and the major difference between how liberals and conservatives see the world.
    And you'll hear the fascinating story of Mike's friends, Kurt and Kristen who worked on multiple presidential campaigns and raised over $500 million... and how they're channeling that political sorcery into a new business helping entrepreneurs grow!
    Now before you tune out because you “hate politics” - hear them out. What they realized is that political campaigns operate VERY similarly to a business startup.
    They have to capture attention, mobilize action, and drive "transactions" (in their case - votes and donations) with very limited resources in a short timeframe. Many of the strategies and tactics can be applied to grow YOUR business.
    A few highlights from the episode include:
    Why Dan believes political campaigns are purely entrepreneurialHow the Trump campaign leveraged technology and metrics in ways other candidates didn’tThe key mindset shifts Dan noted after advising a team that has helped elect a President, 14 Senators, 15 Governors and 88 Congressional membersHow political psychographics can help you understand and activate your perfect customersWhy there is MORE money available in politics than business (and how to access it for your company)And more surprises!Beyond the practical lessons, it gave Mike a whole new appreciation for the political process itself. Love it or hate it, the “game” of politics taps into raw human psychology and emotion.
    So tune into this meaty episode if you want a crash course on political psychology from one of the best strategic minds on the planet!
    Key Takeaways
    (03:46) Husband and wife team's successful political business.(06:55) Elections, ballots, and campaigns simplify political decisions.(10:40) States compete for businesses with tax deals.(17:09) Twitter conversations measured, issues tailored to excitement. Tech usage, unforgivable, humiliating, explosive impact.(19:11) First to use SMS/MMS for political campaigns.(23:35) Creative strategies mobilize behavior and sway elections.(25:38) Primary commentators on politics overlook emotional determinants.(29:49) Understanding depth and strategy in marketing evolution.(33:14) Unique business story, action takers, free money.(37:20) Prototype AI tool finds money, hooks audience.(40:44) Conservatives rely on various powers, not politics.(45:20) Almost 60 years of political involvement and interest.(48:01) Tribalism's power and entrepreneurialism's international language.(49:43) Prosperity leads to peace in history.Additional Resources

    5 Presidential Election Strategies You Can Use in Your Business Today

    5 Presidential Election Strategies You Can Use in Your Business Today

    Mike has BIG news about today’s episode of Capability Amplifier.
    He sat down with two of the most fascinating and brilliant folks he has come across in a long time — Kurt and Kristen Luidhardt. They are THE masterminds behind getting presidents, governors, senators elected through clever marketing and messaging.
    We're talking half a BILLION dollars raised and dozens of high-profile politicians helped into office.
    But here's the crazy part — they took all their political marketing mojo and created a system to help NON-political businesses reinvent themselves faster and find "hidden money" just waiting to be snagged.
    We're talking about uncovering secret revenue streams, optimizing your messaging to create buzz and engagement, even spinning off new products and services from within your existing business.
    Their system is pure gold and they break it all down in this episode. The stories of sleeping in their car while selling fireworks, expanding to a massive tent operation in Philadelphia (nearly getting arrested!), and exploding onto the political scene are epic.
    You've got to hear Kurt's hilarious story of splitting his pants wide open right in front of President Bush! It's cringe-worthy and hilarious.
    And their passion for helping American small businesses reinvent themselves comes through loud and clear. Mike was pumped up and ready to take on the world by the end!

ItsWhatYouSee ,

You’ve helped unlock something inside of me!

Ever since high school, I have heard the phrase, “you have so much potential,” which I have viewed as a thinly disguised way of the deliverer telling me I’m not working hard enough. These podcasts, particularly the one with Bryan Howard, CEO of Mercury Performance Group, are helping me understand that it’s less about working hard (although that’s still important) and more about finding the right alignment with values, goals, and perspective.

Specifically, the inchworm concept that Bryan described out resonated with me because I realized I may have been ahead of the curve at one point in my career but my leaders were uncomfortable with my methods and suppressed them—and therefore me. (Spoiler alert—I no longer work for them.) Through Bryan’s description, I had an aha moment that I now have the privilege of leading at least one inchworm right now and that requires a different leadership approach than someone who may still be developing their skills. I owe it to these talented team members to do better than my previous leaders and be open to their ideas, then support and advocate for them as they change the organization for the better.

Thank you for your perspective and vision through these podcasts, and keep bringing the terrific content!
