    People Buy From People - Jonathan Bentz - Hard Corps Marketing Show - Episode # 321

    How much information should you give your clients? We have just the episode for you! Today we have Jonathan Bentz, Marketing Manager at Direct Online Marketing. Jonathan discusses with Casey Cheshire that it is important to give as much information to your clients about what your company does rather than leaving them in the dark. He also talks about how important it is to not stretch yourself out thin. You want to be able to have enough time and energy to help your clients. Jonathan gives us his tips on how to stay humble in your company. Tune in to this educational episode.
     
     
    Busted Myths:
    Stop hiding information away from people who want and need that information. 

    Takeaways:
    It is important to give as much information to your clients about the company as you can. Hiding information away from them, within reason, when they ask can break the trust you have built. 
    If you control the conversation, you're gonna be top of mind for people and you're going to be there when your prospects are ready to raise their hand. This will create a deep trust between you and them.
    If you format your website correctly to show potential clients your own brand, then customers won’t need to ask what your business does. Make sure your website is clear about what your company is all about. 
    Jonathan’s favorite book currently is “Word Before Work” by Jordan Rainer. Jonathan uses this book to help tie his faith and work together. The author's content has been influential for Jonathan over the last 18 months to help bridge that gap.
    Jonathan believes that if you leave things on the table, then you're probably potentially leaving prospects on the table as well. Jonathan thinks that marketers should be humble and teachable because if you don’t, you're going to find yourself in a bad place. 
    Try not to stretch yourself thin. By doing this, you may not be able to invest all of your time and effort into making your platforms successful.

    The Barrier To Entry Matters - Josh Sweeney - Hard Corps Marketing Show - Episode # 319

    The Barrier To Entry Matters - Josh Sweeney - Hard Corps Marketing Show - Episode # 319

    Do you want to scale upwards in your company? We have just the episode for you! Today we have Josh Sweeney, President of FounderScale and Founder of Epic Culture. Josh discusses with Casey Cheshire how Most marketers will delegate and ditch as soon as someone is hired for their position. He also talks about the differences between demand and lead generation in the workplace. Josh gives us his tips on how to build scalable revenue, not lucky revenue. Tune in to this educational episode.
     
     
    Busted Myths:
    Scalable revenue is built, not bought.

    Takeaways:
    In order to have scalable revenue, you have to build it up first and then you can augment it. You can use those services and leverage them to scale upwards.
    Before you jump up to another level in your job position, what you should do is delegate and elevate for a year or two. Most marketers will delegate and ditch as soon as someone is hired for their position rather than helping the other elevate up to their level and then move on.
    When you are building yourself up, look at what has already been working for you and go up from that. It is key to build on what's already working and see how much further you can go.
    Demand generation is about building engagement with your audience while lead generation is closing that sale with your audience. You need demand generation to happen first before you go to lead generation. 
    It is very important that your webinar presentation is engaging. If you don’t feel excited about the webinar, why should the audience feel the same? Engage with them and get them excited.
    With every million, the complexity of your problem goes up and the time it takes to solve that problem goes up too. It is always key to take a step back and relook at the problems you have.
     
     
    Quote of the Show:
    “It's all about engaging and educating in order to build the pipeline.” (10:11)

    Optimizing Your MarTech Strategy - Darrell Alfonso - Hard Corps Marketing Show - Episode # 318

    Optimizing Your MarTech Strategy - Darrell Alfonso - Hard Corps Marketing Show - Episode # 318

    Do you have a good marketing strategy? If not, we have just the episode for you! Today we have Darrell Alfonso, Director of Marketing Strategy and Operations at Indeed. Darrell discusses with Casey Cheshire how to make your MarTech strategy tie with your marketing strategy. He also talks about how you don’t need to buy a tool to make your company better. It’s all about having a good marketing plan. Darrell gives us his tips on how to focus on your customers. Tune in to this great episode.
     
     
    Busted Myths:
    You can fix bad marketing by buying a tool.

    Takeaways:
    Your MarTech strategy has to be tied to your marketing strategy. Your marketing strategy needs to be focused on what's best for the customer and what's best for the business.
    When wanting to understand your marketing strategy in your business, ask yourself these questions, what's the path of a great customer journey/experience and what tools do you need to get there? This will help better construct your MarTech strategy. 
    In most businesses, there's the idea that if they buy tools it makes their company successful. When in reality it's not, it's their business strategy and it's the way that they think about delivering value to their customers.
    To engage more people with marketing, you need to move, compel, and persuade them in order for them to be more interested. A way for this to work is by storytelling and knowing your audience. 
    As a marketer, it is important to think about how to be customer obsessed and how to really think about the customer. Put yourself in the customer's shoes and see how your marketing strategies look from their point of view.

    Building Trust With Your Customers - Edith Väli - Hard Corps Marketing Show - Episode # 317

    Building Trust With Your Customers - Edith Väli - Hard Corps Marketing Show - Episode # 317

    Do your customers trust your company? How can you build trust? We have just the episode for you! Today we have Edith Väli, International B2B Marketing and Corporate Communications Consultant. Edith discusses with Casey Cheshire how to build your brand and how to correctly advertise your company. She also talks about how it is important to get to know your competitors and customers to help your company stand out above the rest. Edith gives us her tips on how to build trust with your customers through your website's professional looks. Tune in to this great episode.
     
     
    Busted Myths:
    People think that building your brand requires a lot of money, but it doesn’t. Everything is doable, even without money.

    Takeaways:
    When reading papers or seeing advertisements, you see companies encouraging people to spend a bunch of money. In reality, you don’t need to. You just need to figure out what is best for you, what works for you, and what doesn't work for you before you spend so much money.
    When starting your business, you want to ask yourself these basic questions: What is your product? How does it fit the market? Why are you doing this business in the first place? Asking yourself these questions can help narrow down your goals for the company.
    You want to know exactly who your competitors and customers are when starting your company. Get to know them on a personal level and figure out why they are selling this product, and why the customers are buying this. Collecting this information can help your company stand out above the rest.
    Make sure your PR team is promoting your company by making blog posts and reaching out to new/existing customers. Having your PR team do this will create deeper relationships and community with your customers. This will also help your business's name get out there. 
    When you start out at the beginning of your company, it's good to have professional photos and professional videos up on your website/social media. If you don't have money, then do it yourself. It is better than just using your random stock photos because stock photos will give customers a feeling that this is a fake company. You want to build trust.

    Behavior Graphics Is The New Thing - Pardees Safizadeh - Hard Corps Marketing Show - Episode # 316

    Behavior Graphics Is The New Thing - Pardees Safizadeh - Hard Corps Marketing Show - Episode # 316

    Privacy is key. How do we keep our privacy to ourselves even through the internet? We have just the episode for you! Today we have Pardees Safizadeh, CEO and Founder at Albaloo. Pardees discusses with Casey Cheshire the best place to track customer flow on the internet is actually offline. She also talks about how customer flow is more based on what marketing should have been from the beginning instead of stalking people and gathering their data when they didn't consent to it. Pardees gives us his tips on how to be a better marketer and how to avoid getting your phone tracked. Tune in to this great episode.
     
     
    Busted Myths:
    Offline is the new online. It doesn't take $10,000 to make it happen.

    Takeaways:
    The best place to track customer flow on the internet is actually offline. You can look at different behaviors. It's more based on what marketing should have been from the beginning instead of stalking people and gathering their data when they didn't consent to it.
    If you don’t want your phone to be tracked, don’t connect with free wifi services that require an email to sign in. You can try downloading an ad blocker when signed onto a free wifi or a VPN. 
    At Starbucks, you're able to actually link your device with the app reward system which makes it more like an experience for you when in reality they are tracking your phone just like the Target app, Walmart, etc. 
    Today, when you download any app, the app will sometimes ask you permission to track your phone. You have the option now to select no instead of it being tracked without your consent.
    In today's economy, the limited partners today are losing money because the stock market's going down. Some of them saw their net worth have left, which made them fund the venture capitalists. This will make it so they can't have as much money to spend on the startups they wanna spend it on.
    You need to remember to like your new, old, and incoming customers even if they are difficult to work with. Having a good relationship with every customer will collect a better backlog of new potential customers and more money through your business.
