If you’re a faithful listener of the show, you probably remember the remarkable episode from a few weeks ago with Christoph Cemper. In that episode, we discussed analyzing your link profile, different types of redirects, and much more. In this second half of the conversation, we spend more time digging into 302 versus 301 redirects. We then go into depth about what to do if you’ve received penalties (whether algorithmic or manual) and how to perform an effective cleanup process. In the lightning round at the end, Christoph offers even more amazing value, including a chance to win a free spot at his upcoming training event in Las Vegas.
Today’s guest, Marcus Sheridan, AKA the Sales Lion, has been called a web marketing guru by the New York Times, perhaps thanks to his sometimes unconventional advice on what sales techniques really work. We discuss deeply valuable information that gives insight into how customers think and behave, and how this relates to what you should do in your sales process. In today’s conversation, Marcus will talk about how to influence the buying criteria of your prospects to preempt their objections, and how to differentiate yourself in a sea of competitors.
My guest, Ephraim Olschewski, is someone who has had a profound impact on my life -- and I hope he will on yours as well. Ephraim is a high-performance coach for executives and business owners, with his rates starting at $100k a year for individuals and $1 million a year for organizations. Despite these high-value deals, he doesn’t use contracts at all. In this conversation, he explains the compelling reason why, and offers insight into how to show up powerfully in your business and the world. I hope that all of my Marketing Speak episodes offer valuable informative learning, but I truly believe that this one can offer transformative learning as well.
We're joined today by Nick Cownie. Nick is an award-winning entrepreneur who specializes in rapid mindset change. He says that there’s one simple trick that builds rapport over the phone faster than any other: using the name of the person you’re talking to frequently through the conversation. Nick shares mindset techniques for overcoming the fear of rejection and turning cold calls into cash. Nick and I met in the Secret Society mastermind group, and I was so impressed with him that I invited him to share his advice for marketing success.

We discuss the key strategies of marketing, including going viral, storytelling, and the art of providing valuable swag.
Today’s remarkable guest is immediately recognizable by his creative title alone: he’s the “Chief Disruptasaurus.” In case you’re not familiar with the title, the man in question is Mike Koenigs. As you’ll hear in our conversation today, Mike is an expert marketer. He offers an incredible amount of insight into topics such as using text messages and videos to capture attention and convert leads. In addition, Mike is a stage 3A colorectal survivor. This experience has deeply reshaped his perspectives on value and time, and he offers an inspirational message that I hope will help you, as a listener, to value your own time more highly.

Now, he shares his wisdom and insight with businesses—and, in this great conversation, with you.
