I help businesses build trust and brand loyalty | πŸŽ™ Podcast: Trust Cast | ⭐️ JMH Media
August 20, 2020

I've been looking forward to this episode for weeks! It's the perfect intersection of SuccessQuest and JMH Media.

Maeva Cifuentes and I nerd out about culture, language, marketing, and content. It was such a fun conversation!

Thanks for being on the podcast Maeva!

Episode highlights:
πŸ‡΅πŸ‡ͺ Cultural exposure is important! If you can, visit another country or learn another language. It will change the way you see the world.
πŸ’° With PPC ads, you have to pay to get traffic. With content, you don’t.
πŸ’¬ Talk to your customer support and sales departments! They talk to the customer every day and can tell you what pain points they have.
πŸ™Œ Content isn’t about promoting your products. Instead, it’s about solving problems.
‼️ If you do content marketing correctly, it’s not guesswork.
🀝 Good marketing and good sales go hand in hand. If you provide value then sales will be easy.
πŸŽ™ Start a podcast! A podcast is an amazing tool that provides so many benefits. It lets you network with people, and it creates incredible content.
βš™οΈ Create systems in your business and document these systems. This will help you outsource and get help.
πŸ‘¨πŸΌβ€πŸ’Ό The value of creating a personal brand. Build relationships!

Enjoy!

🀝 Relationships: the key to business growth πŸ“ˆ

🀝 Relationships: the key to business growth πŸ“ˆ

πŸ’° Do you want to make more sales?
⬆️ Do you want your business to grow?
πŸ”₯ Do you want to build a powerful brand?

Well of course you do! That's likely why you're on a platform like LinkedIn. Let me make it simple for you. Build REAL relationships and the growth will come.

🚫 Don't just connect with people -
βœ… Engage!
🚫 Don't spam inboxes -
βœ… Have real conversations
🚫 Don't be pushy -
βœ… Find pain points and provide solutions

You'll learn that real connections and real relationships lead to sells... and those sells will lead to testimonials, referrals, and more sells.

You got this!

Love your enemies

Perhaps never in our history has this teaching of Christ been more applicable:

β€œLove your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;”

May we show more kindness and love. Especially to those who disagree with us.

My first business was an absolute failure...

❌ My first business was an absolute failure... 🚫

I grew up in a large family. My Dad, a small business owner and entrepreneur, taught me to work hard and dream big. I remember some of my favorite moments with him were talking about business or coming up with new business ideas.

⚑️ When I was 16, I started a business with a goal to sell and install wind turbines and solar panels. I contacted a manufacturer, and even became an official reseller.

😩 I didn’t sell one wind turbine or solar panel.

πŸ™ŒπŸ» That said, I learned valuable skills. I built a website for my little business. Admittedly, it wasn't a great website, but that was the start to the path that I'm still on today.

πŸ€” Was it really a failure? I guess it depends on how you define success and failure. What metrics do you use to measure them?

Tell me about some of your "failures"! πŸ‘‡πŸ»
