Happy 2018 Everyone! Welcome to the Marketing Forward Podcast! I’m Seth from Goldstein Media, with me is David Birnbaum of Tasty Fish Marketing, Ashley Owens of Ashley Assists!
Since this is the New Year, we thought we’d talk about how to get started on the right foot with your marketing and business networking.
The beginning of the year is a great time to review 2017. What did you do right or wrong? What can be improved upon? What one thing do you wish you could do better this year?
If you haven’t been out to some business events,
We've changed our name. Instead of Tasty Fish Marketing Podcast, we're now the Marketing Forward Podcast. In addition, Dave, Seth, and Ashley decided to combine the Business Networking Tips Podcast and the Marketing Forward Podcast.
So, welcome the networking goddess known as Ashley from Ashley Assists.
As promised here's the link to sign up for Ashley's weekly newsletter (scroll to the bottom of the page to sign up) and Seth's monthly News You Can Use newsletter. Also, here’s the link to visit David at Tasty Fish Marketing.
In this episode David and Seth talk with Bob Taraschi, the Founder of Milestone Ideas, about finding your target customers—and learning from them to improve your products.
Bob is an artist, comedy writer, professional facilitator and author. Bob has served the needs of over half of the Fortune 500, and is credited with strategic roles in over 90 new product introductions. He has helped organizations, including Procter & Gamble, manage the process of innovation, strategy and tactics.
At Milestone Ideas, Bob helps companies foster the type of creativity and planning that fuels growth. He understands the forces that swirl around brands to make them interesting, surprising and unique.
We’ve made it past episode 1.
Today, David and I want to address a topic that we need to discuss before we dive deeper into the podcast. Why do you need marketing? What exactly is marketing?
I guess we should start out with how we each define marketing is and why it matters to your business. We’re going to do our best to keep it to 30 minutes, because both of us could talk about this topic forever!
