Nobody Trusts Anybody Anymore

Episode 121 - Nobody Trusts Anybody Anymore

Nobody trusts anybody anymore. At least that's how it seems.

I recently read a ridiculously awesome article on Heidi Cohen's blog about five marketing trends, one of which had to do with the erosion of public trust.

Unfortunately, this lack of trust can have a negative impact on the success of your marketing and sales efforts. The less people trust, the less likely they are to support brands and businesses unless they're already loyal customers.

That's where social media can help. Social media makes it possible for you to build mutually beneficial relationships with those on the receiving end of your messages.

Social media gives you the opportunity to show that you have a personality, not just a pulse.

The more people learn about you on social media, the more likely they'll be to trust you. #SocialMedia #Marketing #Branding

Being Incessant on Social Media

Episode 120 - Being Incessant on Social Media

Incessant creating. Incessant sharing. Incessant listening. Being incessant in everything you do on social media is one of the keys to success there.

In the documentary, “ZZ TOP: That Little Ol’ Band from Texas,” the band’s lead singer and guitarist, Billy Gibbons, talks about the “incessant touring” they did in the early stages of their career and how that helped them become so popular. The rest of their story, of course, is history, as they went on to become iconic, international superstars on the music scene.

As it was for these ridiculously awesome rock musicians, it is for you, me and anyone else who wants to perform successfully on social media. We have to be incessant. #SocialMedia #Marketing #Branding #ZZTop

Episode 119 - Put on a Show

Chris Brogan is on to something.

In an article he recently published on LinkedIn (, he said he was going to be changing his title to “Showrunner” and that he would be helping companies turn their business into a show.

Chris is perfectly suited to do just that for his clients. He's a master communicator, whether he's hosting his daily video show, The Backpack Show, keynoting a conference or writing a blog post. Imagine what he can do for your digital brand if he does just a little of what he does for himself and others already.

I concur with Chris completely.

With the emergence of #SocialMedia years ago, we said that every brand was a publisher. I say that they’re now broadcasters, too.

Whether we’re talking about independent consultants and contractors or big and small companies, creating a variety of content on a regular basis and sharing it publicly is the way to go in the new year ahead.

Every business should be employing people who are capable of communicating compellingly in front of a camera, behind a microphone and in writing.

To stand out among the clutter and compete successfully against the competition, every brand should be putting on a show in 2021.

Episode 117 - Being Inspired and Impressed by Debbie Bean

In this episode of my marketing show, I don’t talk about marketing at all.

Instead, I talk about overcoming challenges and coping with crises with a friend of mine from Franklin, the town in which I grew up, Debbie Bean.

Debbie, 66, has experienced more than her fair share of health issues, the most severe being the loss of her hands and feet due to a very serious case of streptococcemia she suffered in late 2006. She was so sick at the time that the doctors were telling her family to say goodbye to her because she was not going to make it.

Says Debbie now about that incident, “It changed my entire world. Instead of being so darned independent, I found myself dependent on everyone for everything. But every day thereafter, I’ve tried teaching myself how to do what I need done. I try to reinvent the wheel to make things work for me.”

Not only did Debbie survive that terrible scare, though, she also has beaten cancer and undergone a handful of other successful surgeries. And as if all that weren’t enough, both of Debbie’s parents’ lives were cut short tragically, her mother’s due to cancer and her father’s as a result of an auto accident.

Today, Debbie works as an administrative assistant, attends the Franklin United Methodist Church on Sundays and drives herself around town, enjoying life as a single mother of two daughters and a grandmother of four.

Her attitude is as positive and optimistic as anybody’s you’ll ever know, which makes you feel good all over just being around her. She says she can either laugh or cry, and she chooses to laugh. I say I’m sure you’ll love listening to our conversation as much as I loved having it. Get ready to be inspired and impressed by Debbie Bean.

Episode 116 - The Secret of Success in Marketing and Elsewhere
Empathy. It’s one thing we could all use more of if we want to be more successful in both our professional and personal lives.
Yup. Think more about others and less about yourself. It's that easy. That’s the secret to success in marketing, the field in which I earn my livelihood, in business in general and in life itself.
When you walk in someone else’s shoes, you learn a lot about how they think, feel and live. You gain an understanding of their needs and wants, their shortcomings and strengths, their wins and losses. You can relate better to them and vice versa. It is easier to establish a mutually beneficial relationship with them.
Empathy towards others – friends or family, colleagues or clients, teammates or neighbors, even complete strangers – leads to much better outcomes and many more solutions, far less division, dissension and disappointment.
Ask those around you how they are doing today. Ask them for feedback. Ask them how you can help.
This is just some of what I took away from a ridiculously awesome article I read recently written by Michael Brenner, which you can check out for yourself in its entirety here…
