Episode 163 – Patrick Allmond – Video Marketing

Patrick Allmond (@PatrickAllmond on twitter) returns to talk the ins and outs to video marketing with host Craig Price. Let’s be clear, Craig makes no bones about it when he discusses his dislike for most video marketing. Why do you think he podcasts instead of vlogs?? Patrick talks both technical and practical as he explains what he uses and how he uses video marketing. He goes over the equipment needed (not much) as well has his process from camera to final post online, not only just creating his 3in5 videos but how he repurposes his video for blogs, podcasts, newsletters and more.

Episode 138 – Patrick Allmond – Online Feedback

Patrick Allmond (@PatrickAllmond on twitter) returns to discuss online feedback with host Craig Price.  We all want feedback but are we prepared for what awaits us online? The avalanche of inane comments and spam sometimes makes us wonder if its all worth it! Or worse…nothing at all. We want our tweets retweeted, our facebook posts liked and our blogs commented on. Getting people’s attention and then getting them to act can be a daunting task. Patrick and Craig discuss how to ask for feedback, write posts that get shared and what to do when you get an internet troll.

Of course we love feed back here at Reality Check so leave a comment, email craig@speakercraigprice.com with questions or guest suggestions and follow us on twitter @realitycheckpod

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.
