Minding My Business - Digital Marketing Podcast for Local Businesses

By Rwbeckjr
Maybe you feel like you’ve tried everything without success. Or you’ve been putting off trying anything because you just don’t know where to start. My goal is to shed light on what a Marketing Plan might consist of for a local business. The key word (no pun intended) is "Plan"! There are no shortcuts...something I've learned over the last 8 years searching for a "Magic Bullet". It takes a strategic approach, and time.
We collaborate with businesses to put together a road map for their marketing; creating websites, offers (Every business needs to have "offers"!) and tools to nurture leads.

Minding My Business - Digital Marketing Podcast for Local Businesses

1x
Are you an independent professional, e.g. Mortgages, Real Estate, Financial Advisors?
Many professionals that build their own book of business are finding it increasingly important to brand themselves. This segment isn't about "branding", but more about building an audience, and where you might be sending them, digitally speaking. Couple that with the shake up of social media and tech giant censorship, owning and managing your own presence has become so important. We will continue to use social media platforms, but we don't want to beholden to them at the same time. They can change the game whenever they want...you don't own your LinkedIn, Facebook, or YouTube channel, they do.

An Interview with Ian Bethell USHealth Advisors
I had the opportunity to interview Ian to help answer a lot of the questions out there regarding health insurance and how to navigate the maze. With so many folks being furloughed and businesses closing their doors, there are some pressing questions. And for the folks on COBRA plans, there is a short window to lock down coverage for you and your family.  You can reach Ian on his cell by text or call at (561) 307-2356 or email him IAN.BETHELL@ushadvisors.com. There is no cost or obligation to ask Ian any insurance related questions. He is an Advisor and will guide you. If there is a better or more affordable plan for you and your family, Ian can set you up with the right fit.

Direct Response Marketing
If you’re not familiar with the name Dan Kennedy, he’s considered the grandfather of modern day Direct Response Marketing. It is “The Method” for local businesses to advertise. Of course it is a method that needs to be incorporated into our modern digital channels. I’m excited about learning more and digging deeper into this subject. I’ve heard others mention Dan Kennedy, but this is the first book I’ve read....couldn’t put it down. I’ll be getting more of his books for sure!

Introduction: A little background
This is my first podcast. I'm sure it will be evident as you listen. As I contemplated publishing this content, I more than likely would have re-recorded this a number of times. You know, trying to get it "right" or perfect. My mentor hammered me until I admitted, to myself, if I didn't just record and publish...take action, it wasn't going to happen! So, my hope is the introduction won't keep you from tuning in again when I actually get to the meat of the subject I'm sharing, to help our local business owners. Make it a great week! RW
