If you love sweets, which do you think would be a better option: practicing and developing willpower by keeping a bag of candies in the house but only allowing yourself to eat one a day, or not bringing candy into the house at all to avoid expending your willpower reserves? While this podcast is about marketing rather than dieting, this is a perfect analogy for social media in terms of having apps on our phones and constant easy access. In today’s episode, Gavin McGarry and I take differing stances on this question as part of a conversation that covers social media, various types of groups, the differences between generations, the future of augmented reality, and much more.
This is a very exciting episode for two main reasons. First, because it’s my first-ever Facebook Live podcast interview! I always do these as audio-only, but since today’s guest is the Facebook king, we’re making history here today and doing things in a new way. The second reason this is an exciting interview is because of the guest himself. Nick Kusmich, who I’ve known for a couple of years, is an absolute genius at Facebook advertising. He knows the ins and outs of Facebook ads and campaigns, and puts this knowledge to work to get his clients the best possible results. In this conversation, Nick talks about his new book, Give. He shares several formulas and frameworks that he uses successfully, including the four Ms (message, market, magnet, and mechanism) and SAGE (short, actionable, goal-oriented, and easy). In short, he shares a splash of that secret sauce that he uses to achieve success for himself and his clients.
