Episode 81 – Patrick Allmond – Internet Marketing

Patrick Allmond (@PatrickAllmond on twitter) checks in to set host Craig Price straight about Internet marketing. Internet marketing is more than just social media. Sure that’s a big part of it, but as Patrick explains it’s also email lists, web pages, pay-per-click ads and more. Patrick focuses on using analytics, utilizing squeeze pages (or landing pages is if you prefer) to get conversions versus just plain old web traffic and how to utilize keywords for both search engine optimization and YouTube videos.
As per usual, Craig is marketing adverse, especially when it comes to the internet and social media, thankfully Patrick brings a real grounded approach toward internet marketing, readily admitting there are some suspicious people (Craig calls them weasels) out there calling themselves experts. Patrick offers practical advice to all people regardless of how familiar you are with marketing, webdesign or the internet in general.While Patrick and Craig cover lots of ground in this podcast, it really is just the tip of the digital iceberg.

Episode 80 – Eliz Greene – Speaker Strategy

Eliz Greene (@ElizGreene on Twitter) returns to talk about her new venture as a Speaker Tactician.
She offers insights, speaker strategy, and if necessary professional nagging! Eliz  and host Craig Price talk about the need for master mind groups, how to put a master mind group together (hint: Eliz can help!), what makes a good speaker website (pretty is okay but it better get you WORK!) and the most important need of all personal accountability.
Eliz Greene will keep you on course, on schedule, and consistent with the speaker you are on the platform.  She delves deep into your business to provide insight on what you may miss because you are so busy working your business.  More than a speaker coach with a cookie cutter plan for you to follow, Eliz provides individualized insight and attention as well as crafting facilitated mastermind groups to propel your success.
She’s so good at speaker strategy and branding that I had to tell people:
“Eliz Greene was of immeasurable value while creating my book “Half a Glass: The Realist’s Guide”. She didn’t just proofread it and offer grammatical changes. She pointed out highlights, suggested deletions but more importantly gave her reasons for each. I was expecting a few notes yet she had a thorough nine page document that shaped the final product so it was aligned with my business and brand. She’s kind but direct, thoughtful and whip-smart. I would recommend her without hesitation to any who want to improve their business, marketing materials or products.”  – Craig Price

Bill uses his award winning radio and TV experience to talk about breathing (Craig’s been doing it the wrong way!) controlling your voice so you can control a listener (like hypnosis only completely and utterly different), glottal fry (not to be confused with the Eagles Glenn Fry) and the vocal differences between accents and generations. If only there was a way to convey all this information to you (SPOILER – it’s your mouth!)
Improving your voice can improve your self-esteem, how people perceive you and how successful you will become. Bill Patti coaches people from all walks of life.

Are You Afraid of Fear?

  I have always appreciated fear.   Fear does many things: It motivates, it keeps things in check, it stops you from doing stupid things, and it can show that you care.   Yet, most people see fear (especially when seen in others) as weakness. This is not accurate; fear is a natural response for …
