Listen in as the tables are turned and I am on the other end of the microphone with Youtube sensation Melissa Maker as she interrogates me on how I built my speaking business. Grab a pen and paper for this one as I dive deep into the nuts and bolts of what it takes to build a successful speaking career.
Past guest and YouTube sensation Melissa Maker of Clean My Space joins us for a well overdue update, and amongst other things, explains how she got Modern Family star Jess Tyler Fergusson (he plays gay Dad Mitchell) to appear in her marketing free-of-charge … yep … FOC.
Melissa first appeared on this show way back on episode 197. Back then she had a nice little cleaning business in Toronto, that she marketed through some very helpful how-to cleaning videos.
Well, she still has nice little cleaning business has grown into a nice little business with multiple revenue streams well beyond cleaning. If you ever wondered if being helpful in your marketing was a valuable strategy, then here’s all the proof you need.
When Melissa Maker started her upscale cleaning service, Clean My Space, in 2006, little did she know that a few years down the line, she’d be the leading purveyor of online content in the cleaning niche – and making a bucket load of cash from it to boot! A woman after my own heart, Melissa understands the incredible power that content (AKA helpful) marketing can have for businesses large and small. And if you’re a sceptic, I really hope that by listening to this week’s episode, you’ll be inspired to create your own Youtube Channel, blog series, or podcast, and start becoming the most helpful person in your industry.
