Best Marketing Podcast of all time!!!!

Stephan, I found your podcast only a few weeks ago, and I am 100% certain this is the best marketing podcast of all time! Thank you so much for all of the incredibly valuable information and insights. I also enjoy your other podcast (Get yourself optimized) but as a Marketer I absolutely love this one. You’re an amazing interviewer and extremely knowledgeable, interesting, and generous yourself. Thank you, thank you, and keep up the great work!

Great Podcast

I started listening to this show 3 years ago after seeing Stephen’s video presentation for Podcast Movement in Anaheim. I’m not really into SEO which is his expertise but this show is about a lot more than that. For someone like me getting into internet business for the first time, I’ve learned a lot from his show. He has some excellent guests and he asks great discussions and asks really good questions. I recently got into his other show about optimizing health and like it a lot too.

Really enjoyed episode 233

What a fun and helpful podcast. I just stumbled across the interview with Melissa Monte and it was great. They went really deep and shared incredible out-of-the-box ideas for really making marketing work. This is real talk from people who know what they’re doing. Worth a listen.

bmccarthy United States 2020-05-20

Excellent, surprising, real and helpful

A Valuable Marketing Podcast

I read Stephan’s book early in my marketing career and really appreciate that he provides this valuable podcast. This is one of the best marketing podcasts that I have found and am learning a lot of useful SEO and marketing ideas

Powerhouse of marketing info

I’ve been on the hunt for a marketing podcast that really adds value and gets into the granular detail that is oftentimes really needed to understand a concept or idea. For me, Marketing Speak is that podcast. I really feel like Stephan takes the time to dive into marketing topics so that once you’ve listened to an episode you walk away with really valuable pieces of information and insights. Highly recommend!

Amazing guests & insights

This is by far one of the best business and marketing podcasts out there. The guests on this show are the real deal - proven marketers and entrepreneurs with actionable insights to share. Stephan asks great questions and keeps his listeners in mind the whole time. Highly recommended!

T. Basu Canada 2017-03-27

some guests are great..others just want to brag

Rand Fishkin was fantastic, Chloe Spencer was very good. But the episode with Jeni Hott should really be deleted. She bragged about how she makes millions of dollars blogging without ever working, but never gave the name of her blog or even what it's about, or how she built the blog and made all that money. Be a little more selective Stephan, please.

podqueen United States 2017-03-05

Stephen is soft spoken, polite, pleasant and extremely knowledgable...

He has helped many people with his marketing advise. His guests talk about the immense results they've gotten from his advise.

Everytime I listen to him, I find myself writing pages and pages of notes because he keeps dropping gems of marketing info in every episode.

I think I'll start a notebook called THE STEPHEN SPENCER NOTEBOOK!

Allened11 United States 2016-12-26

I've been a marketing professional in the US and internationally for over a decade and I still learn so much each time I listen to Stephan's Marketing Speak podcast. There is no detail too small when it comes to discovering the latest effective marketing tactic - this podcast delivers every episode!

J.D.Back United States 2016-11-15

Invaluable Podcast

Stephan is well connected professional that hosts the best online and digital marketers in the world. I have learned a ton from being a regular listener. You need to add this podcast to your list.

DaveF1985195 United States 2016-08-15


This podcasts includes experts at the top of their field, provided invaluable advice for marketers and agencies of all sizes. I pass on much of the information I glean from them on to my staff, so we can implement many of the ideas, tips and tricks of the trade. With a small agency and staff who is always busy, listening to amazing podcasts like this is an easy way to learn squeeze a lot of great digital marketing info and education into small amounts of time. I couldn’t ask for a better resource. Thank you, Stephan!

Liza Viana United States 2016-07-15

Shawn Collins United States 2016-05-20

Listen to this guy!

Stephan is not only an SEO expert and marketing genius, he’s also a great friend and all around person. If you are in the market for some new podcasting content, do not pass this one by! Lots of amazing guests on this show as well.

ZacJohnsonDotCom United States 2016-03-25

I just finished listening to the podcasts with Nicholas Kusmich and with Jay Abraham. These are beyond inspirational - they offer actionable ideas that I can start using right now, presented and explained in an accessible way. Stephan is a great interviewer, and unlike Ferriss or Altucher, he doesn’t waste time telling stories about himself. His questions are great, and once he gets the interviewee going Stephan lets them roll, only checking in to ask follow on questions or to clarify.

Oh, and did I mention there are no commercials? I started to listen to a podcast this morning from one of the authors listed above, and the first 8:47 was hype for their sponsors and other projects. None of that on Marketing Speak so far ; ).

Keep up the great work.

Floyd Dillman United States 2016-01-12

This Podcast Speaks To You and Your Business

darrell.odonnell Canada 2015-12-18

Totally blown away by the payoff from this

Just listened to my first Marketing Speak podcast, an interview of marketing legend Jay Abraham, and am flabbergasted by the value I got from just that one hour…and it was free! I expect to get maybe one good idea from an hour podcast but this one was chock full! I’m going to need to get the transcript and study it. Such kind words from Abraham for the work of Stephan Spencer too, which I can back up since he has worked with my organization. Looking forward to the other shows!!

Huffy hydrophyte United States 2015-12-18

Gertrude Matshe, Africa Alive Foundation

Extremely inspirational for me because I hadn’t really thought of using advanced search and applying it in really non-standard ways to do things.

I was just talking to Stephan Spencer here about the talk he gave and it must have been four years ago at SMX Advanced, he was giving just slide after slide of power tips on how to search in very interesting and unusual ways and how to apply the idea of advanced search to things I had never thought about link building or how to find a particular site or particular information that you just can’t find normally because you can’t query with that but you actually can learn to do it with all these fancy advanced queries. The cool thing about that was it was extremely inspirational for me because I hadn’t really thought of using advanced search and applying it in really non-standard ways to do things. That changed the way I used Google and think about search and search marketing forever.

Brian Piepgras, Internet Marketing Manager, Facebook

Stephan Spencer is both an artist and a technician…

Stephan Spencer is both an artist and a technician… and I didn’t know those were the characteristics necessary to be the world’s top expert in SEO.

Now I do.

His presentation to my Titans Mastermind, some of the most sophisticated direct response marketers in the world, took the group to a new level in this exciting area and gave them a new appreciation of this medium… with actionable results.

Stephan proved conclusively that SEO is a medium unto itself… and that it’s much more than getting to page one on Google.

Aaron Walker, Life & Business Coach, ViewFromTheTop.com

In terms of ROI, it was a sizable investment for us at the time but absolutely worth every penny. He’s certainly a thought leader.

The first thing I wanted to point out was how technical he was, his technical ability, how cutting edge some of the concepts he brought to the table were, the observations that he had. We were facing a lot of technical challenges at the time, and he was really efficient in diagnosing those problems, pointing those out, and giving us a clear path to remedy those problems. He is also very creative in the solutions he came up with. He thought holistically about problems, not just improving the site structure, how things rendered, the conventional stuff.

It was well worth the investment.“

He was key to turning my business from an idea into reality

I will rarely write a review such as this and frankly, Stephan doesn’t need any more accolades, however, he was key to turning my business from an idea into reality. He defined our entire digital strategy (including the blog, podcast and explainer video), and even created our brand from scratch. Going into it, my 18-year company was American Response, Inc. and we didn’t even have a web site.

Provided some good guidelines to us that are still in use today

I met Stephan here two years ago, and we were searching for someone to give us some SEO advice, and what we struggled with then and what we still struggle with today is, who do you believe when it comes to SEO and best practices? You can’t really believe in Google’s saying all the time, you can’t really believe in what a lot of people say. Stephan and his company were actually very helpful to us and provided some good guidelines to us that are still in use today and continue to do a lot. If there’s anyone you can believe about SEO its Stephan.

As a means of raising the profile of The Carter Center and driving traffic to our website, Stephan Spencer suggested that President Carter write a blog.

I recommend Stephan without reservation

Working with Stephan was without a doubt one of the best investments we’ve made.

I recommend Stephan without reservation.

What that actually did for us is put together a strategic plan better than anything that we could’ve ever produced on our own

I’m Steve Spangler and I love to do stuff like this. But there’s no way I’d get invited as a science guy and do any of these cool things on television unless I can get found, unless I had an online presence, unless I had a body of work that people could examine online and truly understand and come to the conclusion that I was the expert that they needed in science education.

How I took Everipedia’s Pinterest account from 31 monthly views to over 3,000,000 in a few short months

Everipedia is heralded in the press as “The new Wikipedia.” However, Everipedia has much more to offer than Wikipedia. While covering everything Wikipedia does, Everipedia’s is fundamentally an Encyclopedia of Everything. Its core strength lies in the fact that it covers many subjects Wikipedia doesn’t (and won’t.) Everipedia uses blockchain technology to help fulfill a vision for a world where all knowledge is available to all people. They have succeeded in taking the Online Encyclopedia into the Modern Age.

John Rampton is an expert in content marketing. If there’s one thing he knows, it’s how to write copy. When he started Due.com, an online payments processing service, he knew exactly what type of content he needed to engage his customers and get them excited about the company. But John is the first to admit that he doesn’t know that much about the technical side of SEO.

Branded Terms Made Up 30% Of This Site’s Traffic—Now Their Conversion Rate Is Through the Roof

AMain Hobbies is a leading online retailer of remote controlled cars, planes, drones, and other toys based in Chico, California. AMain operates an e-commerce site with over 60,000 product pages. As you can imagine, a site that large is a significant challenge to optimize. In 2013, AMain found that although they were receiving a substantial amount of organic traffic, they were not ranking for many key product terms in their niche. In fact, over 30% of their traffic at that time was coming from branded searches like “amain hobbies”.

From Hands-On to Visionary with Graham Robins

The e-commerce revolution has transformed how products move across borders, creating new opportunities and challenges for entrepreneurs and businesses of all sizes. Our guest today is an expert guide through this complex terrain. Graham Robins is the Executive Chairman of A&A Customs Brokers. He’s also the Founder and Executive Chairman of BorderBuddy, which is digitizing the customs clearance process into the USA and Canada for carriers, digital platforms, importers/exporters and customs brokers. Graham is active in the Young Presidents Organization, and in fact, he just finished a chairmanship role of the British Columbia chapter. He is also the host of the Graham Robins podcast. But most importantly, he’s a former client of mine, and we’re going to go behind the scenes on some of the initiatives we implemented on BorderBuddy.com. To kick off the episode, Graham shares his origin story, how he was born into the customs brokerage world with his parents starting A&A in 1979. He joined full-time after high school in 1991, learning the ropes during summers and weekends prior. A&A serves large companies shipping high volumes internationally. But 15 years ago, as e-commerce took off, Graham saw small businesses and individuals needing support, too. So, he launched BorderBuddy to provide tailored services for this market. We’ll hear Graham’s business advice from building two brands with his family spanning four decades, including tactical insights for e-commerce retailers, manufacturers, and service providers on expanding globally. And that, of course, will include how I and my team optimized the BorderBuddy website for better SEO and conversion. So, without any further ado, on with the show!

Link Building in an AI-Driven World with Gareth Simpson

Since AI is in its infancy or pre-teen years, we’re all responsible for molding and shaping its capabilities. So, it is an amazing time in tech and marketing, and in a broader sense, for society at large.
