In this episode, I’m shaking things up and taking my turn in the hot seat. And what better way to do it than with the intelligent, insightful questioning of the brilliant Jay Abraham! On the off chance that you haven’t already heard of him, Jay is a legend in the marketing world. In fact, he’s known as the godfather of marketing. He’s the CEO and founder of the Abraham Group, and has written two books: Getting Everything You Can Out of All You’ve Got and The Sticking Point Solution. It’s fitting -- and only fair -- that Jay gets a turn to ask me questions, since he was the guest on one of my earliest Marketing Speak episodes. Once you’ve finished listening to this episode, go listen to that one too so you can hear his brilliant take on things.
In this episode, I had the pleasure of talking with the brilliant Dan Kennedy, the godfather of direct marketing. Dan has shared stages with other luminaries like Tony Robbins and Zig Ziglar. He's worked as a marketing advisor and consultant to business owners and CEOs of businesses ranging in size up to $1 billion. He reached this professional pinnacle by the depth of his knowledge of marketing, which he generously shares in this conversation.
Roger Dooley co-founded the extraordinarily popular College Confidential and now writes a regular Forbes column, Brainy Marketing as well as his own blog, Neuromarketing. If you have any doubts about its validity, though, you need only look at Roger’s accomplishments to see how well it works. After you’ve heard today’s conversation with him, check out his book, Brainfluence: 100 Ways to Persuade and Convince Consumers with Neuromarketing for even more of his insights.
Today I’m fortunate enough to have an incredible guest. Michael E. Gerber is the mega-bestselling author of 28 E-Myth books, including The E-Myth, The E-Myth Revisited, and his newest book Beyond the E-Myth. In our conversation, Michael gives some fantastic insight into what it takes to create a truly great (and successful) business. He emphasizes the importance of a solid foundation, and of creating something with the potential for success rather than trying to fix something that’s broken.
Brent provides information through speaking at conferences (including SMX and Pubcon), giving interviews (such as for Entrepeneur.com), and writing articles. In this episode, we’re lucky enough to have him sharing his wisdom with Marketing Speak listeners! You’ll learn all about using images in marketing, and gain some great insight into various social media strategies and platforms.
