Photo by Charlotte May from Pexels

HubSpot chimes in with links to 27 marketing podcasts.

Should be interesting for you to:
— Track down new ones that speak to your specific needs.
— See which ones you already follow, kind of a pat on the back for being–literally–tuned in.

Some that piqued my interest:

My First Million

The Digital Marketing Podcast

The Market Your Genius Podcast

Again, here’s the link.

Happy Listening.

How could I?

I merrily traipse along sharing good side hustler stuff with you and it took me 280+ posts before I shared something from Marie Forleo?

I’m even reading her Everything is Figureoutable book and it didn’t dawn on me that she should have been one of the first people this blog should have showcased.

If I didn’t have to live with myself, I’d fire me ASAP.

Apologies done, let’s move on to her 322+ FREE Business Tools & Resources.

She shares resources via 9 categories, each of which could qualify as an online course.

1. Make a Plan

2. Create a Website

3. Design Your Website, Logo & More

4. Support Your Customers

5. Market Your Business

6. Collaborate With Your Team

7. Be More Productive

8. Manage Your Business

9. Learn New Things

She also offers this massive blog post in spreadsheet format.

Side Hustle Spark 281: Reach Out to Customers brainstorm list (150 items)

Here is today’s brainstorming list of 150+ ‘Reach Out to Customers’ terms.

You’ll notice it is heavy on the verbs.

First suggestion: Have fun with this content. See what’s helpful, but don’t sweat over it.

Everyone thinks differently. Maybe hand this list over to co-workers/assistants to get their input.

Another suggestion: Revisit the list on occasion. Hey, minds change, approaches change, priorities change.

Possible uses of a list like this…

— Combine terms.

— Find common themes.

— Which terms appeal to sense of humor?

— Which terms communicate a more serious approach?

— Which terms suggest a goal or objective you hadn’t previously considered?

— Find all the terms that relate to ‘customer problems’.

— Find all the terms that relate to ‘solutions to those problems’.

— Find words from which you can use to create your own new words or phrases.

— Find word(s) that speak to pop culture.

— Pare down. Pare down some more. 

— Even better…set a timer and give yourself 10 minutes to generate first-draft marketing or blog copy using list items.

— Can you create a slogan from chosen list items? Check out this link below:

I hope this helps, side hustlers. Let me know how else I can assist.
