Ep 08: Nice Feet, Event Marketing And Nobody Likes An Advertisement! Inbound Marketing Is The Start of The Trust Cycle

img_3717 In this episode of The Ryan Holtz Show, I talk about nice feet and how that could be a way to gage someone’s character. I also give three tips to use social media and digital marketing to increase “foot” traffic to your next event. I would love to know what you think and if feet are really that important what they do actually say about a person. I also chat about how nobody likes an advertisement and the trick to great marketing is inbound and position your product or brand to be in front of the client or customer when they are in the market for your product or service.

My Interview On 401 Radio’s Biz Talk With Corrine Dayman Talking About Feet, Social Media And How People And Businesses Are Communicating Via Web, All in Toronto!

So refreshing is the words I would use to describe my most recent radio interview while I was in Toronto to speak at The Canadian Jewellery Expos and Canadian Jewellery group shows. Corrine Dayman had opened up the show by telling me how she came across my article in the Canadian Jewellery Magazine.

We talked about how social media needs to be sexy and fun. In 2015, the way humans are communicating both personally and professionally has changed immensely, therefore the way we market our business has to match the context in which we communicate. I absolutely love what former CEO of Burberry Angela Ahrendts does with brands allowing their story to be told through digital mediums, it is quite amazing actually. Owners of businesses, whether they be jewellery store owners or car dealership owners are all struggling to find that grasp on how to properly tell their story with good content in a digital context.

Some advice I would give to business owners is to take your time and before making the first move, figure out what your current story is and most of all, who your current customer is.

Ex: If I am selling cars and I figure out that my current car buyer is shopping heavy using digital and third party websites to do their research, I would then try and match that path to purchase by gently tapping them through my digital arm whether it be Facebook, Google, Twitter, Instagram or whatever!

We are mobile, we are on the move, we have less time, we have more choices, therefore if we are in business, we must keep up with our customers or risk not being there when they need us. Remember, the customer is in complete control, not us!
