    Season Final - The skill or area you recommend to be prepared to do your best online

    Please note: This is the final episode for season 1 of The Dobcast! We will be back in the next couple of months with season 2...

    We have spoken with a lot of people over the the season so far, discussing their business, marketing and areas of expertise, along with some personal insights as well.
    As we conclude season 1 of the show, we have decided to look back at some of the valuable insights and advice my guests have offered.
    You may recall that Erica asks the same three questions at the end of each interview.
    So over these last few episodes, we have collated those answers, providing an insightful summary of the way each guest approaches them.
    The third and final question she asks - and the one we will focus on in this episode - is what is the one skill or area you would encourage others to develop so they can be prepared to do their best online?

    Our Scout "motto" is be prepared to do your best online, and we aim to instil this in everything we do.

    It is the most anyone can ask of us, and we can ask of ourselves - Do Our Best.
    While you may find there are a couple of areas you may need to focus on, we really loved how my guests took this question on and distilled it into one single recommendation.
    We really loved listening back to these answers, and hope you will too.
    If you have missed any of these episodes, or these grabs pique your interest for a re-listen, please do!
    We would also like to thank you for listening to and supporting The Dobcast. After this episode we are taking a break for a month or so, and will be back later this year with Season 2!

    The first question she asks - and the one we will focus on in this episode - is who or what inspires and motivates you?
    As someone who occasionally struggles with motivation, Erica is intrigued by who or what keeps others motivated.
    (And she is motivated by conversations with others about their businesses and digital marketing, hence this podcast!)
    You will notice some similarities between some of the answers provided, and a lot of variety as well.
    We love the way the same question can incite so many answers.
    If your motivation doesn't immediately spring to mind, we encourage you to take some time to consider it. And if you are really struggling - take some inspiration from these guests!

    Facebook Ads vs Google Ads with Jen Evison

    Facebook Ads vs Google Ads with Jen Evison

    We are doing something a little different this episode, and including the audio from a recent webinar where digital marketer and good friend of the show Jen Evison and I discussed the topic of Facebook Ads versus Google Ads.

    This is an area we are asked about a lot, with people wanting to know which to use and which one is better.
    Spoiler alert: they have some similarities but are also very different, and in this episode we discuss:

    •What Facebook Ads are
    •What Google Ads are
    •Which you should use, when, for what purpose
    •And regardless of which you use, some key considerations for each.This original discussion was presented with accompanying slides, so if you are a visual person, do check out the webinar video recording (link below).
