MoneyLab's Matt Giovanisci on Affiliate Marketing, Blogging for SEO, and Clever Sarcasm...
Ep #83 -Matt Giovanisci, the creator of the website Swim University and the founder of MoneyLab.co, joins Jusitn Womack and Andros Sturgeon this week for a fun and in-depth conversation on all things digital marketing. We had first heard about Matt Giovanisci from a viral email "stunt" that he pulled a few years back which I personally found hilarious and you can still view it at MoneyLab.co/email. We talk about the impetus behind this marketing campaign, how it impacted his business, and we even touch on the use of sarcasm in marketing. Matt is presently focused on affiliate marketing and has launched a new tool called Lasso which allows Wordpress users to create beautiful looking Amazon affiliate links right on their sites. Along with a business partner, Matt created this software from scratch and has now launched it as a cloud-based SAAS product at GetLasso.co.  Beyond blogging, affiliate marketing, and email stunts, Matt also co-hosts the podcasts "MoneyLab" and "Listen Money Money Matters." Both of these shows have developed sizable audiences and provide tremendous value to listeners.  Matt Giovanisci is a wealth of knowledge for online marketing and we had an absolute blast geeking out with him in today's Marketing Geeks Podcast interview. If you're interested in SEO, blogging, media, or podcasting, you're going to absolutely love this interview. Enjoy!

[Bonus] Don't Fake Your Buttons with Facebook Ads - A Marketing Geeks News Update!
Ep #77 - This is a Marketing Geeks Bonus Episode with marketing news updates recorded on October 15th, 2019  First and foremost, we learn today that Facebook may allow for misinformation in political ads, but they do draw the line somewhere. That's right Facebook has started banning political ads from the president and several top democratic candidates, but not for lies. Instead, Facebook has cited the source as profanity and "fake button" for the ad removals. If you're like me, you may be wondering, "What is a fake button?" Well, you're in luck, because our research team here at Marketing Geeks has identified the source of fake buttons as buttons that are embedded within images. So, if you see an ad with perhaps a "yes" and a "no" button, but its embedded in the image, this is high stakes trickery because no matter where you click, you're going to the same destination. So, whatever you do on Facebook, don't fake your buttons. Other stories covered today include print advertising being passed by digital advertising on a global scale, LinkedIn rolling out a new feature for company page admins, YouTube ad updates allowing reserved placements, and South Park triggering its own censorship on the Chinese internet.  Last, we welcome the long awaited return of the sex robot report. It's all here in this very special jam-packed bonus edition of Marketing Geeks. Remember, we love our listeners and want to continue to grow the show so that we can provide even better content and quality going forward.

Zachary Babcock on His Journey from 5 Years in Prison to $20k Months as an Entrepreneur...
Ep #76 - Zachary Babcock, the top rated podcast host of "Underdog Empowerment," joins the Marketing Geeks this week for an in-depth interview on his personal journey from spending 5 years in prison to becoming a thriving entrepreneur generating repeated $20k+ months. Zach now runs his own media production agency where he helps entrepreneurs to launch top-shelf podcasts in five weeks or less. Zach went from living with convicted felons in prison to rubbing elbows with multi-millionaires.  Rather than becoming a victim to his own past and allowing his status as a felon to define him, he transformed his story into a source of power and used it to build a personal brand and podcast that is changing lives while attracting celebrities, professional athletes, and industry leaders as guests. In today's interview, we dive deep into Zachary's journey and identify the source and motivation behind his transformation. We discuss his start as an entrepreneur and his path to building a personal brand and podcast. Zach also describes his experience with podcasting and the impact it's made on how people view him as a business professional.  Zach is on fire right now and his brand is exploding. He has a ton of wisdom to share and we were fortunate to get him for this interview. Enjoy!

Jodi Daniels on Digital Privacy, the GDPR, the CCPA, & What it Means for Marketers...
Ep #73 - Jodi Daniels, the Founder & CEO of Red Clover Advisors, joins the show today. Red Clover Advisors is a data privacy consultancy helping companies create privacy programs, provide operational support to achieve GDPR or CCPA compliance, and serves as a fractional privacy officer. Jodi previously served as SVP of Privacy Compliance at Bank of America and created the privacy program at Cox Automotive. Many marketers are familiar with the GDPR privacy laws that recently hit the European Union. Did you know that California has passed its own new set of state privacy laws that take effect in January 2020? They did and the new law is known as the CCPA, California Consumer Privacy Act. In this interview, we are going to break down the CCPA and analyze just how bad, how good, or how innocuous it really is.  Digital privacy is becoming a growing concern in the lives of everyday consumers and it will continue to expand as an issue. Jodi has a tremendous expertise in the subject matter and we had a great time interviewing her to learn the nuances of these various laws. Enjoy our interview with Jodi Daniels!

Misti Barnes on Curing Baldness, B2B Marketing, and Overcoming Rejection
Ep #67 - This week on the Marketing Geeks Podcast we are joined by Misti Barnes, a hair loss expert that is attempting to tackle the issue of hair loss and baldness. Misti is an author, a trainer, an Associate Trichologist, Collagen Restoration Therapist, Medical Micropigmentation Artist and licensed Esthetician. Together, with a leading biochemist in hair science, she developed Cellustrious® Hair Follicle Rejuvenation™,  a patent-pending, non-surgical treatment for hair loss, which uses plant-derived peptides and growth factors to target hair follicles. It's an ambitious undertaking and an inspiring one that we wanted to discuss on the show. During our interview, we dive into Misti's backstory and even her early journey finding clients. Misti has recently transitioned away from targeting a consumer market and rather is adapting to B2B (business-to-business) marketing strategies.  As a B2B marketer, Misti does all the hard things that most business owners don't want to do. She literally visits doctor offices and clinics to pitch her hair loss solution in person and over the phone. We talk a little bit about how this has been for her and how she's responded to rejection and ultimately overcome it. Hint: She had a lot of it early on. Misti Barnes has a relatable story and an inspiring one. She is making big things happen and gave us an amazing interview. Enjoy.

[News Updates] FB Gets a $5B "Slap on the Wrist," Elon Musk Wants Computer Chips in Your Brain, & the MCU Phase 4 is Coming...
Ep #61 - Big updates are coming to The Marketing Geeks Podcast this week. The release of this episode marks the beginning of a major show format change where we will now be splitting our episodes into two types of categories: current news and update & expert interviews. At the beginning of each week, we will be releasing a "news and updates" episode [category name subject to change] which will feature your normal show hosts, Andros Sturgeon and Justin Womack, waxing intellectually about marketing news, tech releases, and current events. You can also rest assured that all listeners will receive a full helping of geeks news, movie updates, and the latest of what's happening in a certain robot niche market segment. In this episode, we have a whole lot of marketing news to cover which begins with the "slap on the wrist" that Facebook has received in relation to their data scandals. Apparently, when you're as big as Facebook, the government can fine you $5 Billion dollars (with a 'B') and people will think you got off easy. Even the stock market is reacting favorably to this small five billion dollar fine.  Also, Elon Musk's startup Neuralink, which aims to install computer chips into all of our brains, is getting closer to a first generation market release. For a while, I was considering being among the inaugural brain chip cyborg class, but after reading about the benefits, which we will discuss in the show, I think I may have to wait another decade or so. Other topics covered include the celebrity shout out app, Cameo, why Andros believes we are living in a simulation, and plenty more.  We conclude the episode talking about the big news out of Comic Con last week when the Marvel Cinematic Universe's Phase 4 film lineup was revealed. If you don't know whats coming, get excited because we have major updates to announce. ******* The Marketing Geeks are Hosting a Live Webinar Training Called "The Podcast Launchpad" on Wed, July 31st at 11:30am PST Reserve your FREE spot to this training at www.PodcastMasteryCourse.com  Even if you can't make it live, sign up because we will be providing a limited run of the presentation replay for those of you that register If you can make it live, we will be taking live questions during the session so start thinking about how you can stump us now REMEMBER, ANY SUPPORTERS THAT DONATE AT $5 OR MORE TO THE SHOW WILL BE GRANTED TO ACTUAL REPLAY VIDEO FOR DOWNLOAD  ******* Connect with the Marketing Geeks on LinkedIn:  Justin Womack: https://www.linkedin.com/in/justinwomack1/ Andros Sturgeon: https://www.linkedin.com/in/androssturgeon If you would like to support the show with a donation, please click below to submit a contribution: https://anchor.fm/marketing-geeks/support 'Donate $0.99 per month to get a featured shout out on air.  Donate $4.99 per month to get a shout out + access to all webinar recordings.  Donate $9.99 per month to get all of the above + a private group coaching call once a month for one hour with the Marketing Geeks.  Want to be a guest or suggest one?

Ryan is a hugely accomplished guest and his achievements are incredible. He is the Inc. 500 CEO of The ASK Method® Company, and the #1 national best-selling author of "Ask," which was named by Inc. as the #1 Marketing Book of the Year and by Entrepreneur Magazine as their #2 Must-Read Book. The ASK Method® Company was ranked among the Fastest Growing Companies in America by Inc. Magazine two years in a row. Ryan Levesque's work has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Forbes, and Entrepreneur and over 250,000 entrepreneurs subscribe to his email newsletter offering business advice. Additionally, he is the co-founder and an investor in bucket.io®, a leading marketing funnel software entrepreneurs are using to build interactive quizzes, assessments, and surveys to segment their audience into buckets and create a tailored buying experience online. Ryan will discuss this software during our podcast interview and how it works. His latest book "Choose," helps readers avoid making the single biggest mistake when starting a business and guides people through answering the all important question: What type of Business should you start? In many respects, "Choose" is the prequel to his book "Ask," and it was created after listening to the needs of his fans and clients. Starting a business is hard. Most people fail, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Of the millions of people who start their own small businesses, about 20% fail in their first year and 50% fail in their fifth year. While many factors can affect a business’s success, the single biggest mistake new business owners make all comes down to one thing. And THAT is the subject of this book "Choose"… We are excited and honored to have Ryan Levesque join us on the Marketing Geeks Podcast and he has a ton of wisdom and value to pass down to our listeners.

Pat is the founder of the website, SmartPassiveIncome.com, and he also runs 5 podcasts (that's right 5) including Smart Passive Income, Ask Pat, and even one about food trucks. Pat regularly does multiple six-figures in income each month which is really not too shabby. Pat happens to be a massive super-fan of the "Back to the Future" franchise which we discuss on the show. In fact, we talk about what it means to be a super-fan and Pat shares that he has a new book aptly titled "Superfans" which releases in August (a total coincidence). A super-fan in business is a loyal customer that listens to all your podcasts, reads all your blogs, buys all your products, and raves about you to their friends and family WITHOUT being paid. Pat credits his super-fans as a key reason his business has reached the level of success it has.  When you listen to this episode, you will get a full breakdown of what it means to be a super-fan, you'll hear tales of Back to the Future, and we may even discuss Pat Flynn's upcoming live conference called, FlynnCon.

Dave Gerhardt, VP of Marketing from Drift, Talks the Importance of a Congruent and Authentic Brand Personality
Ep #49 - Boom! Today on Marketing Geeks we are joined by Dave Gerhardt, the VP of marketing from Drift, a conversational marketing platform that connects you with the people ready to buy now.  Drift has been absolutely exploding over the last couple of years and the company continues to produce innovative tools that help to communicate and target ideal prospects and customers.  Dave Gerhardt sits down with Justin Womack and Andros Sturgeon for an interview to discuss his role at Drift and his thoughts about what makes an effective marketer in 2019. Many of the old rules of marketing have either changed or are changing and Dave believes that we are about to enter what could be considered the most difficult era yet for marketers. The tools and tactics that used to bring marketing success are now just "table stakes" to join the game. Dave believes that today's effective marketers need to show a level of congruence by being the same person when speaking on behalf of the company, talking on a podcast, writing an article, or sitting at home for a family dinner. He believes that the era of false brand personalities is ending and that people, more than ever, are connecting with authenticity, transparency, and direct, upfront messaging. It's a great interview with lots of key insights so listen in and enjoy!

Fyre Festival Marketing and Why Psychopaths Make Effective Marketers...
Episode #33 - You've seen the Netflix and Hulu documentaries, you've read the horror stories, but what really was behind the Fyre Festival and it's sudden rise to prominence. In today's episodes, the investigative reporters known as the Marketing Geeks will examine the influencer marketing strategies and general marketing principles that were utilized to build fast, effective, and massive buzz about the Fyre Festival. The techniques that were exercised were often nefarious and with manipulative intent, but we are simply analyzing why they worked. Additionally, we will look at Billy McFarland, the man behind the Fyre Festival as well as the millennial black card company, Magnesis. Billy has run multiple shady companies and seems to lack empathy in hurting other people. Based on his patterns, we discuss how he may or may not meet the characteristics of someone with psychopathic tendencies. In fact, research has shown that psychopaths tend to either end up in prison or rise to the position of CEOs. It's a very fascinating topic and we go deep into why they are effective in business and marketing as well as how a lack of empathy can create short term gains, but create bigger long term problems. As always, there will be geek news, marketing news, and of course, the world famous, number one podcast Sex Robot report in the world.  Listen in for an amazing episode and incredible content. Today, we are sponsored by both Anchor.fm, a podcast hosting network where this podcast is currently being hosted, as well as by www.bannerseason.com.  BannerSeason is an awesome card and gift online platform which provides unique personalization and it designed for business owners.

The Art of the Customer Avatar and Why Marketers Dont Want You To Know About Them...
Episode #32 - In this episode, Justin Womack and Andros Sturgeon reveal the art and science behind creating a customer avatar. We dive deep into the concepts, practices, and reasons why avatar creation is critical to attracting the right kinds of clients for your business. We even define the term once and for all. In fact, history has shown that more primitive marketers have tried to bury these techniques from the general public. They have remained hidden from the vast majority of people, at least, until now. The Marketing Geeks have grabbed our shovels and we have unearthed the truth and unlocked the secrets so that you, our audience, can know the truth. If you are a fan of the show, we encourage you to become a supporter of the show to receive bonus content.

With this software, business owners can create one-off gifts such as mugs, tape measures, water bottles, or even golf balls featuring either your own logo or the logo of one of your clients. As the platform is designed for one-off orders, it can be very effective to send your clients a mug with their logo or picture on it to develop that relationship. You will be amazed at the wow factor generated from these gifts. To create an account, go to www.BannerSeason.com and use Invitation Code "START".
