Plus I take you behind-the-scenes of my most successful Facebook post ever. Let’s go!
Jeff Bullas may well be Australia’s leading expert on how businesses can embrace social media marketing. No longer do you, the motivated small business owner, need to view the likes of Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIN as evil, bright shiny objects that distract us from getting on with business. Social media marketing can be effective. Can generate leads. Can help you build a tribe. In my fireside chat with Jeff, you’ll discover exactly how this impossibility is actually possible.

It’s the Big 200th episode! If you’ve been listening this whole time, thank you, and if you’ve just joined us, welcome to our little community that revels in marketing GOLD. Along the way, I sure have learned a lot about marketing and small business myself, and I’ve had the opportunity to interview some of the most astoundingly talented marketers on the face of the planet. But this episode is extra special because I’m joined by the guy who started it all with me from Episode 1 – Luke “Lukey” Moulton. Listen up!
In this week’s episode, I ask the age old question – Does sex sell? And you will probably be unsurprised to know that the answer is a resounding YES – at least, if your brand is relevant to the occasional flash of flesh. And one brand that certainly is relevant is frank coffee scrub. I speak with Jess and Erica from frank, and they talk through their astounding growth to 350,000 Instagram followers, why a little bit of cheekiness never hurt anyone, how they commit to such a strong identity throughout all their branding, and the benefits of having a low price point. Let’s get started!
Are you making any of these mistakes when marketing to women? Women make up 51% of our population, yet most businesses are doing it all wrong when it comes to marketing to them. See, what women really want is to feel heard – and understood (sound familiar). They’re looking for meaningful long-term relationships with brands. NOT just a quick trade of goods or services. Today I’m joined by Amanda Stevens, who debunks the age old myth that “sex sells” and explains the one HUGE mistake that men make when trying to market to women.
“Do we really need another social media channel?!” That was the premise I went in to this interview with.
“Yes we do!”, is my view following this chat … on the proviso that it’s easy to manage and provides a commercial return.
The guy who convinced me is Jason Miles – the co-author of the best-seller Pinterest Power, VP of advancement at Seattle’s Northwest University and co-founder (with is wife) of Liberty Jane Clothing – a six-figure online business successfully selling designs for doll’s clothes.
As the head marketer for Liberty Jane Clothing, Jason is successfully using Pinterest to drive traffic and rank highly on Google.
Listen in as he explains exactly how he does it.
