Ep. #110: ­­Move to a Decentralized, Distributed Branded Newsroom

Season 2, Ep. 110

It's time to move to a distributed brand newsroom. An emergent opportunity for entrepreneurs building companies is to decentralize the content function by moving to what I call a participatory publishing model. Here, your entire team is responsible for content (not one or two marketing people).

In a creator-centric model, the system constraint is the capacity (and limited knowledge base) of the team responsible for creating content. But let’s be honest: most content managers are trained to write for SEO and top-funnel traffic, not for the customer.

With a company-centric newsroom, there is no constraint. Content is guaranteed to be more diverse, more relevant and more value-additive for an audience who’s looking for real, tangible, unbiased stuff that they know they won’t glean from a surface-level blog written by a junior marketing person.

  • 117. Ep. #117: How to Grow CLTV, Drive MRR & Increase Retention

    I want to share three ways to enable monthly recurring revenue and three ways to grow customer lifetime value, regardless of your business model.There are essentially three ways to enable MRR: a full-fledged subscription or membership business; what I call a “perpetual performance-based” pseudo subscription option; or optional add-on recurring products that customers can buy after a one-time initiation.And there are three primary methods to grow CLTV once you do that. You can raise prices incrementally (the quickest but most risky), launch new products (enabling alternative purchase options), and speed up your retention point (the moment customers associate your business with an impulse/need/desire and continually come to you without even thinking).===============📖 𝗚𝗘𝗧 𝗠𝗬 𝗕𝗢𝗢𝗞:🎓 𝗖𝗢𝗡𝗧𝗘𝗡𝗧 𝗖𝗔𝗣𝗜𝗧𝗔𝗟𝗜𝗦𝗧 𝗔𝗖𝗔𝗗𝗘𝗠𝗬:💼 𝗪𝗢𝗥𝗞 𝗪/ 𝗠𝗘:📲 𝗧𝗘𝗫𝗧 𝗠𝗘 𝗪/ 𝗤𝗨𝗘𝗦𝗧𝗜𝗢𝗡𝗦: +1 (978) 792-1466===============

  • 114. Ep. #114: My 8 Marketing & Business Growth Principles

    In this episode, I break down eight marketing and growth principles for business. They include the following:· Delay gratification. Invest in audience, content, and long-term brand equity over vanity metrics or quick cash-outs.· Give more than you get. Maximize consumer surplus to encourage word-of-mouth and grow CLTV.· Attention & trust compound faster than revenue. They are like gold in this new digital economy. Optimize for both.· Business continuity is predicated on genuinely loving customers. Anything less than a raving brand advocate is a loss.· Choose to excel–not to compete. If you remain radically focused on excellence, the competition becomes irrelevant.· Make offers, craft messaging and provide so much excess value that it’s impossible for prospects to say “no.”· Attention has shifted toward micro-content and multimedia. Understand how to use podcasts, YouTube, and Shorts.· To scale, identify your constraint(s), look at: sales (new business volume), CLTV (increasing yield), and retention (reducing churn). Identify the weak link, fix it, then optimize the others.===============📖 𝗚𝗘𝗧 𝗠𝗬 𝗕𝗢𝗢𝗞:🎓 𝗖𝗢𝗡𝗧𝗘𝗡𝗧 𝗖𝗔𝗣𝗜𝗧𝗔𝗟𝗜𝗦𝗧 𝗔𝗖𝗔𝗗𝗘𝗠𝗬:🧠 𝗝𝗢𝗜𝗡 𝗪𝗔𝗜𝗟𝗜𝗦𝗧 - 𝗡𝗘𝗢𝗖𝗢𝗥𝗘'𝗦 𝗦𝗠𝗔𝗥𝗧 𝗘𝗔𝗥𝗕𝗨𝗗𝗦:
