Influence Marketing Book Interview with Danny Brown

Influence Marketing Book Podcast Interview Danny Brown

This week I had the great opportunity to interview Danny Brown on his new book co-authored with Sam Fiorella called Influence Marketing. Danny in my opinion is a Thought Leaders’ Though Leader – an awesome no BS resource for what really works in social media marketing.

The book launched yesterday globally and you can get it on Amazon in hardcover or Kindle format. According to HubSpot Danny Brown’s blog (DannyBrown.me) is the #1 Marketing Blog on the planet. Danny and I have been Tweeting and emailing each other for almost four years and we finally got to connect and do this podcast together

Here were some of the key take-aways from the podcast interview with Danny Brown:

  1. Most concepts of influencer marketing (especially through social media) are incomplete or focused on the wrong audience
  2. Good influencer marketing doesn’t start with social media gurus or big influencer, it starts with mapping out what your customer persona is and then identifying who impacts your customer buying decisions
  3. Klout and the many apps like it are great for identifying macro influencers but in many cases aren’t helpful identifying the actual micro influencers that directly impact your customer’s buying decisions
  4. 5 steps to to start doing your influence marketing right

We covered so much in this podcast that you’re just going to have to listen to it to get all the information.

Here’s a great InfoGraphic on Influence Marketing Sam and Danny just released that really demonstrates how many organizations are struggling with or don’t understand the importance of Influence Marketing  (Click here For the High Res Version):

Why Community is Still Number One in Social Media Marketing

Community building and social media marketing

Community in social media is still number one. I posted the following tweet a couple days ago on Twitter and it received quite a bit of feedback and a few retweets:

Social Media Tip: social media scales through community, community grows by relationship building. Focus on people.

I then realized that I needed to expand on the topic. Here’s the basic outline of what I cover in todays podcast:

  1. Why community is vital if you want to leverage your social media marketing efforts and get your content and marketing to expand well beyond your own sphere of influence.
  2. Relationships build community, numbers alone don’t make a community. People who have an emotional connection with you and your brand are more likely to share your content and interact with you.
  3. Focus on people, even PR has changed. Bloggers and community influencers have now become gatekeepers of communities and your content won’t flow into those communities until you connect with those gatekeepers.

6 Reasons You’re Silently Failing in Social Media

social media facebook fail failures

Most social media failures aren’t big public train-wrecks on the internet. They’re silent failures, people and brands that never rise above the noise and get noticed. Today’s podcast focuses on 6 reasons you may be silently failing and what you can do to turn things around.

The 6 Reasons You’re Silently Failing in Social Media:

1)  Your content strategy is too safe

2)  Your reach is minimal

3)  Your conversation strategy is weak

4)  The right people don’t know who you are or they don’t care

5)  You have no social media plan

6)  You’re not integrating social media

7 Steps to Building a Social Business

I have been a little too busy over the past 3 months. 20 seminars and training sessions, a half-dozen new clients for our social media agency and of course family time! I have a number of new podcasts in the que for you over the next 60 days but I thought I would re-ignite my blogging efforts by sharing a new video I just posted called “7 Steps to building a Social Business.” Also you can also check out our Socialized! Agency Blog for new and breaking news on the social media space. Enjoy!

Also Consider Gannon University Online MBA Programs as another way to build success in the business world. Before you get social a business foundation really helps.

5 Social Media Lessons From Wizard World Comic Con

Social media for comic con with socialized! social media agency

At Socialized! our Social Media Agency we have had some incredible opportunities over the past year to work with brands such as the Ford Dealers Association of BC and Alberta, the Certified Management Accounts, CGA BC, CGA Canada and the Make-a-Wish Foundation. However…even producing the week long event “Social Media Week Vancouver” did not prepare us for the passionate, loyal and often opinionated fans at Wizard World Comic Cons. This is a relatively new adventure for us but this podcast reviews 5 social media lessons I have learned (or re-learned) so far:

5 Lessons (Listen to the podcast for a full explanation):

  1. Tapping into a Tribe is much better than building one
  2. When people know you’re listening they talk, share, tweet, like and follow
  3. Amplify the moment
  4. Run contests to find influencers
  5. Partner to expand influence

Here are some of the links and resources mentioned in the podcast:
