    How Can Your Brand Bridge The Trust Gap?

    How Can Your Brand Bridge The Trust Gap?

    There's a trust gap between consumers and brands that has been growing for decades. For some, social media has helped close the gap, but only for those who truly understand the dynamics of social media. For others, the spray-and-pray, blast messages just push consumers farther away.
    Margot Bloomstein is a well-known content marketing strategist who has written a new book about closing that gap. It's called Trustworthy. She joined us on Digging Deeper to help brands understand the gap, how to close it and how to ultimately earn trust from your audiences.

    What happens when a Creative Director leads with social and digital?

    What happens when a Creative Director leads with social and digital?

    The typical advertising agency creative director is someone steeped in television, print, radio, outdoor and the like. They probably went to art school and have spent time building creative strategies. But the world of digital and social media has changed the requisite background for what we call creative directors today.
    Bridget Jewell is one of the fabulous creative directors at Periscope, an agency with offices around the world, but based in Minneapolis. She has developed award-winning social, PR and influencer programs for the likes of Hefty, Trolli and Black Forest candies, Great Clips, Target, the Minnesota Twins, Intuit and many more. She’s joined Digging Deeper to tell us about it and talk creativity with brands.

    Digging Deeper on Influence and Persuasion

    Digging Deeper on Influence and Persuasion

    Brian Ahearn knows a thing or two about persuasion. After a two-decade plus career in sales he started teaching people his techniques. Fast-forward another decade or so and he's a certified Cialdini instructor and author of two books.
    His first book, Influence People, was declared one of the top 100 all-time books on influence by BookAuthority. His latest book, Persuasive Selling, is focused on insurance agents, but has cross-vertical approaches to help everyone. More than anything, techniques Ahearn teaches help bridge the gap that sometimes exists between marketing and sales.
    Jason also discusses the latest influencer fraud statistics and report by HypeAuditor in the episode. Find more about that data at HypeAuditor.com.

    The CEO's Perspective on Marketing

    The CEO's Perspective on Marketing

    Marketers often exist in their own bubble. A select few get some face time outside of that bubble with the CEO of the company they work with or of the brands they work for. We wanted to change that on Digging Deeper, so we invited a CEO in to give us that executive position on marketing, sales, social media and more.
    Ken Romanzi is the former CEO of B&G Foods who now serves as an advisor and principal at The New England Consulting Group. That company produces some of the most well-known consumer brands out there. Crisco, Cream of Wheat, Green Giant, Ortega, Molly McButter, Snackwells, and Weber, among others. His background also includes time at WhiteWave Foods, OceanSpray and he was once president of U.S. Toys for Hasbro.
    He stopped by Digging Deeper to talk about the breadth and depth of B&G Foods, how they were organized, where marketing and sales meshed and beyond. The discuss was a valuable peek behind the C-Suite's curtain for all of us.

    Defining Your Brand

    Defining Your Brand

    Lots of agencies, consultants and experts throw around the word "brand" but don't ever seem to really grasp what it is and explain it in a way you can understand it. Nick Westergaard has spent a career trying to fix that. His Brand Driven Digital agency has done so for many businesses over the years. He's turned that expertise into two books: Brand Now - How to Stand Out in a Crowded, Distracted World, and Get Scrappy - Smarter Digital Marketing for Businesses Big and Small.
    Nick joined us on Digging Deeper to help better define the concept of brand and branding. He also explained what brand storytelling is and how businesses should use it. His ideas can help you understand your brand and what it takes to make it stand out in today's noisy marketplace.

    Hacking Growth Hacking

    Hacking Growth Hacking

    Growth hacking strikes some people as something that computer software companies do. But Shopify's Morgan Brown, co-author of the book Hacking Growth, knows that it's a process any business can leverage to leverage data and efficient budgets of time and resources to grow more effectively, and in some cases, to be more successful than originally planned.
    Brown is a former product director at Facebook and current vice-president for growth at Shopify. He joined Digging Deeper to demystify growth hacking for the rest of us and talk about the future of his company, one of the world's largest e-commerce software solutions for businesses of all sizes.
