Marketing Podcast with Steven Herz

Steven HerzIn this episode of the Duct Tape Marketing Podcast, I interview Steven Herz, President of The Montag Group, a sports and entertainment talent and marketing consultancy. He is also a career advisor to CEOs, lawyers, entrepreneurs, and young professionals.

Steven’s book Don’t Take YES for an Answer, is a self-empowerment guide to achieving your fullest professional and personal potential. Don’t Take YES for an Answer explains why excessive positive feedback limits personal and professional growth and then teaches you how to embrace hard truths and critical feedback to escape mediocrity and break away from the pack.

Questions I ask Steven Herz:

  • Why are you suggesting don’t take yes?
  • Do people want to hear negative feedback?
  • What is missing, why aren’t we giving feedback?
  • How do you filter the feedback that is qualified?
  • How does authority play a role in not taking yes for an answer?

What you’ll learn if you give a listen:

  • Why no one knows they are failing
  • How the bumper sticker no judgment became the norm

Google Analytics for Small Businesses

Google Analytics for Small Businesses written by John Jantsch read more at Duct Tape Marketing

Marketing Podcast with John Jantsch

Today’s topic is Google Analytics, one of my favorite items to talk about. It isn’t the sexiest topic, I know. But it’s an important one. Closing the loop on your marketing investment, on your channels, on your customer engagement, those are important. This allows you to focus, to spend less money, and to invest in what really works.

Google Analytics I work with a lot of small business consultants and small business clients and this is one of the biggest challenges to get them excited about. It’s a lot like telling people they need to like math. Especially when you go to this tool, one that I believe is one of the best tools on the planet, and it’s free, but it’s really easy to get lost. In this podcast, I’m going to spend some time trying to simplify this.

Listen and learn:

  • Why should you care about Google Analytics?
  • How do I set it up?
  • What goals to have when setting up Google Analytics

How to Outsource Small Business Work

How to Outsource Small Business Work written by John Jantsch read more at Duct Tape Marketing

Marketing Podcast with Nathan Hirsch

OutscourceIn this episode of the Duct Tape Marketing Podcast, I interview Nathan Hirsch, co-founder of OutscourceSchool. Nathan started off selling textbooks his my dorm room before discovering Amazon. Then scaled a 25 million dollar Amazon business selling toys and baby products, but always struggled to hire help. That’s when he discovered virtual hiring.

Through lessons and frustrations while building his virtual assistant army he found a need for a better system. Nathan set out to build a better marketplace that pre-vetted virtual assistants before they were allowed on the platform, quickly matched them up with clients, had 24/7 support in case the smallest thing went wrong, and a no turnover protection where we covered replacement costs if someone quit.

Nathan scaled this business to 8 figures with his business partner, Connor Gillivan, and a team of 35 rockstar virtual assistants. No office and no US employees. The VA team did everything from CS, billing, podcast research, lead gen, recruitment, and more. FreeeUp started with $5,000 in 2015 and reached 12 million in annual revenue in 2019. It was acquired at the end of 2019 by The HOTH.

Once the transition to the new owners was over, Nathan started to be asked by other biz owners if he could teach them how to hire virtual assistants better. That’s how the idea for Outsource School was born.

Questions I ask Nathan Hirsch:

  • Why did you feel the need or call to teach people?
  • Are there things you really need to do to find the right people to manage it in a way that still feels like a business?
  • Do you find that you can overdo company culture?

What you’ll learn if you give a listen:

  • How outsourcing works
  • How outsourcing is put in place at OutscourceSchool
  • The outline of BARF
    • Get your employees to BUY in to your company
    • Show APPRECIATION
    • Building RELATIONSHIPS
    • FAMILY
