Revenue Accelerator with Jennifer Best

Season 2021, Ep. 812

In this episode of the Revenue Accelerator Podcast, we have invited Jennifer Best. She is a senior marketing leader with proven success in developing and executing interactive marketing strategies for a startup, mid, and global organizations. She has leveraged her advanced knowledge and application of user experience, web design, and Search Engine Marketing throughout her career to build effective marketing strategies that drive lead generation and conversion. Jennifer is also an analytical leader who can identify opportunities to streamline operations, automate processes, and create cohesion across teams, brands, and at all levels of the organization. Today, Jennifer talks with us about the challenges of virtual events and building relationships during the COVID-19 pandemic.


Digital Marketing in the COVID-19 Pandemic 

[3:02]

Digital marketing as a whole is always going to be the powerhouse. What's happening with the pandemic and the work-from-home setting has thrown many marketers into a loop. They lost the ability to go on-site and do sales calls. They lost the ability to do direct mail campaigns, and everybody is now inundated with email. Everybody is pushing email because it can be accessed anywhere and is relatively inexpensive in marketing to people. It really should be more reactive and have more to do with people expressing an interest and then hitting them with communication that is relevant to what they're asking about.


The Secret to Longevity 

[4:19]

All American Entertainment is trying to focus on building relationships. With successful companies, they know that relationships are the secrets to longevity. The best price is not always going to get you loyalty. It's always going to be the relationships you build, the service you provide, and the trust and brand that will extend your relationship. That longevity of having a consistent recurring customer costs less to keep a happy recurring customer. 


Importance of Relationships 

[15:50]

Building relationships will help you better understand what makes your clients tick. That is the secret to building that long-term relationship. If you understand their pain points, you're one step ahead of them, and then you can help solve them.



Creating the Right Following 

[22:47]

It's also important to know and make sure that you're getting the right following, which can be challenging. You're selling or trying to market to people and you're trying to bring in new customers to make sure you're getting the right customers. With social media, you want to get the right followers. But remember that more is not always better if they're not the right followers.



Keep Practicing 

[34:54]

Do not skip the practice step. You want to make sure that all your speakers' tests are ready, that you know the people on the other end. Do not just assume that your speakers are going to know how to get on your platforms. Prepare and practice before the day of your event. It is challenging, but the greater likelihood of success happens when those practice sessions happen.

Revenue Accelerator with Nina Froriep

Season 2022, Ep. 728
In this episode of the Revenue Accelerator Podcast, we have invited Nina Froriep. She is an expert in the film and video production industry. Nina participated in various commercials, shows, and films and the producer and director of the Emmy Award Winning documentary film “Abraham’s Children.” Nina also helps coaches and entrepreneurs utilize video marketing for their businesses and services to gain clients. In today’s episode, she discusses video marketing and how to use it to gain clients on LinkedIn.How Nina started in the Video Industry[1:10]Nina has always been talented and an all-rounder in terms of creativity. Being curious about technology, she always tries something new, just like how she tried to invest in Cryptocurrency when it was first introduced. Thirty years ago, she discovered filmmaking and chose it over other professions because the filmmaking field has it all. Once she entered the industry, she slowly climbed up to the top.Video Marketing[3:36]For the last four or five years, Nina has been focusing on teaching video marketing with a focus on LinkedIn. They use the platform to gain clients, targeting business and service coaches and entrepreneurs. They help their clients produce content for their video marketing. [7:05]Consistency is the key that helps in monetizing on LinkedIn. As time passes by, change has been happening, especially in technology. What works now may not be appropriate in the future. Nina shared her experience on how their company boomed during 2020-2021; however, she emphasized how 2022 differs from before. Inbound Marketing[11:19]Nina values relationships a lot. When it comes to getting clients, they try their best to avoid outbound marketing and focus on inbound marketing; video marketing, after all, is part of the latter. Having great content could help people decide to reach out to you, and Inbound clients liked your content which led to them contacting you. Nina shared how she keeps track of where their clients come from – whether from a referral, a repeat client, an inbound client, or an outbound client. In her case, the clients are primarily referrals and repeat clients; otherwise, it’s an inbound with a few outbound. Strategy and Call-to-Action[13:36]In content creation for video marketing, you must first have a strategy. Determine what your purpose is, your target audience, etc. Make sure to also use call-to-action. You also need to find out your video personality. Nina shared that they have created a video personality quiz to help clients more in creating content. It will help your video to convert, and your target audience will see your sincerity as it aligns with your values. Recommendations on Content Creation[21:12]Nina recommends having a strategy and a content calendar. A content calendar can be composed of current promotions and activities of the business, events in the world, or society. Nina shared how they are currently promoting their Bootcamp. Aside from that, she makes sure share something about the video personality test once a week or thrice per month. Creativity[25:05]It’s essential to have a structure in creativity because it creates boundaries. If there are no boundaries, then there is no creativity. You should also be flexible with your content. Closing Remarks[29:58]You don’t necessarily need fancy equipment to shoot a video for marketing purposes. You can use your smartphone to start things off.Learn more about Nina by visiting: https://clockwiseproductions.com/

Several different circumstances can cause people's procrastination. But to get past procrastination, one has to push through the reasons one gives themselves.Negative Events Affecting Success[05:47]Trauma is a persistent cycle that runs through a person's head, preventing them from discovering or developing the potential inside them. As a result, trauma is one of the most significant reasons why individuals procrastinate.[06:45]Some are born leaders and others who are born followers. Some may have heard that they are overwhelming. However, consider it a compliment because that particular characteristic may be what attracts potential clients.Working Things Out[10:29]People have diverse life experiences at different ages.

Revenue Accelerator with Alison Tedford

Season 2022, Ep. 726
In this episode of the Revenue Accelerator Podcast, we have invited Alison Tedford, a business consultant and author specializing in inclusive communications. She did work in the public service around creating inclusion for indigenous people within the federal prison system. Today, Alison discusses inclusiveness and communications, their respective origins, and how they interact.Telling Someone’s Story[00:45]When you think about storytelling and the role of a storyteller, you have to recognize the historical relationships that your subjects have had with who tells their stories, how they're represented in media, how their narratives are framed, and what level of consent they've experienced when their stories are told. It's important to consider when you're telling stories about people who are either different from you or share your identity. Writing Isn’t Just Writing[03:54]It involves relating, mediating, translating, and interest-based negotiation. Sometimes, you have to be able to come back to a subject and say, I understand why these things are important to include. We need to figure out how to share that with an audience who might not have the same frame of reference and knowledge base. [04:50]Things can be factually accurate. But the aspects of a story that are emphasized and how things are positioned can make a difference in how people feel.Inclusion Value[08:19]When you are inclusive, you create many more opportunities for people. It's important not to engage in perfectionism to the point where you continue to exclude people who haven't had opportunities. You need to do the best that you can to create a space that is going to accommodate people.[10:31]What are your values? Who do you want to include? If somebody comes across your website if somebody comes across your work, experiences, your services, how would they be able to see those things? If those things aren't things you can articulate, or aren't built into your processes or language, then that's something to evaluate if things need to shift and research what people need. And how might you need to do things differently?[16:02]It's good to be clear about where you stand and understand who your people are and what they care about. Diversity Inclusion Statement[22:19]It's something that should be a living document. It shouldn't be something that you copy and paste because the way you include people might change over time because norms and expectations can change. Technology can change, and there are lots of different aspects that will change over time. So it's important to be current with your statements so that people know what to expect.Conclusion[25:10]Regarding diversity inclusion, sometimes people are afraid because they think they will be lectured and made to feel bad about themselves. It's not about guilt; it's about growth. We're all humans conditioned by our environments, and there's a lot of messaging out there that we internalize just being people. When we know better, we can do better.Discover more about Alison Tedford by visiting: http://alisontedford.com/
