Personal Branding Masterclass w/ Daniel Priestley

Great interview on TheFutur with Chris Do.

Daniel Priestley is a very impressive speaker. I highly recommend watching this video.

“The fastest way to grow your business is to build this key person of influence brand then transter that positve energy on to a business brand.”

1. THE PERFECT PITCH
Key People of Influence have a compelling answer to the question ‘What do you do?’. If you can’t pitch your value with clarity and credibility it’s game-over. The perfect pitch
2. PUBLISH CONTENT
Key People of Influence create blogs, articles, reports & books for getting their message out to the world. Publish content
3. PRODUCT ECOSYSTEMS
Key People of Influence turn their skills, talent and ideas into products that people love to buy. Rather than purely trading time for money, Key People of Influence surround themselves with a ‘product ecosystem’ that makes money anytime/anywhere. Product ecosystems
4. RAISE YOUR PROFILE
Being good at what you do is no longer enough. If you want to be a Key Person of Influence you must stand out and be recognised – You are who Google says you are. Raise your profile
5. PARTNER WITH PERFORMERS
Nothing great was ever achieved in isolation. Key People of Influence create opportunities with other high performers so that everyone can achieve more.

Great Conversation with Seth Godin on LondonReal

Great Conversation with Seth Godin on LondonReal

Check out this interview with Seth Godin on LondonReal. The link in the title is the first half of the interview. To get the full version, you need to provide your email address. The interview is worth it. Seth Godin is an amazing storyteller. Here are some of the topics he discusses:

  • Marketing is anything we do that changes the culture for the better.
  • You should blog every day. The idea that there is a blog tomorrow forces you to come up with better ideas today.
  • Why the smallest viable audience forces you to be better.
  • The typical online course has a 97% dropout rate, Seth’s AltMBA has a 97% completion rate.
  • It’s not about more tactics, it’s important to believe you have something to contribute.
  • What is school for? It’s not about learning, it’s about making us compliant factory workers.
  • The work that matters can’t be done by AI. It’s the soft skills.
  • If you optimize a website enough, it will become a porn site.
  • What we want from you is consistency, not authenticity.
  • People have such regret about that phone in their pocket and the three hours they spent online last night.
  • Imposter syndrome is where people feel like a fraud. If you didn’t feel like a fraud, it’s either because you aren’t trying very hard or you’re a psychopath.

Promoting on AppSumo for Massive Exposure

Promoting on AppSumo for Massive Exposure

There are a couple of discussions on IndieHackers now about having your product promoted on AppSumo. Andrew Kamphy has sold over 500 copies of his BetterSheets on AppSumo. At $19 each, it comes to over $10k after four months. @Nscode just got his book accepted by AppSumo. AppSumo keeps 70% of sales, so that doesn’t leave much for the creator. However, it can be a good way to get more customers. I’ve purchased many products on AppSumo including SerpStat, which made $250k in one week with their promotion. SerpStat wrote a comprehensive guide for a Successful AppSumo Promotion.

How to Communicate Your Brand Story with Simple Marketing

How to Communicate Your Brand Story with Simple Marketing

John Jantsch of Duct Tape Marketing interviews Story Brand agency owner and author of Marketing Made Simple, Donald Miller. Don’t tell your story, invite customers into your story. No one wants to hear your story, unless you can help them survive. I like Donald’s simple framework for a marketing plan. You need these 5 things: 1. a good one-liner, 2. a landing page website, 3. a lead generating PDF, 4. an email nurturing campaign, and 5. an email sales campaign. Having frameworks like this in your business is very important. They can sometimes seem obvious when you hear about them all the time, but that is also why they are powerful. Don’t skip the obvious ideas.  I’m at 1 and 2 with IdeaEconomy. Number 3 is coming soon. 🙂
