Brand You Personal Branding

It's that special time of the year to look back, reflect on your year, and set your sights towards the next year ahead.

I experienced a lot of changes this year: my marriage, major business decisions, and moving for the time being to Florida. Through these many transitions, I've learned:

  1. Life is short but the longest thing we’ll ever do. Eat good food, spend more time with loved ones, and never pass up a good adventure.
  2. You can influence almost anything, you control almost nothing.
  3. The greatest awareness is self-awareness.
  4. I connect far more with people over our vulnerabilities and vices than I do our victories. Victories are short lived. The battle over our vices and vulnerabilities rages everyday and this is why it’s so much easier to connect with others.
  5. Relationships are for a reason, a season, or a lifetime.

My hope is that these takeaways will help you head into the new year with grace, vision, purpose, and energy.

Josh Pies is a real-world video marketing expert. If you’re ready to learn how to use video to market your business and look good in the process, then you need to stay tuned to this episode. 

I've gotten to know Josh over the past year because we're in the same mastermind group, and I asked him to come onto the show to share how you and I -- everyday non-video people! -- can use the tools at our disposal to share better content on social media video. It doesn't matter if you use video for fun or for a business, you'll get some great insight on best-practices for social media video.

Some questions I asked Josh:

  • What tools do I need? I feel so behind compared to all these in-home studios that these other creators have.
  • Everyone talks about DSLRs or other high-end cameras. What are your thoughts on that?
  • Where do I even shoot videos in my house?
  • How do I know what to say in my videos?
  • What is the best "roadmap" for video creation?

Josh has a suite of resources available here: smbfilmschool.com

Joseph Bojang’s kids would say he’s the best dancer in the world, but he says his best moves are creating PPC and Facebook ad campaigns that actually help businesses make money. 

Joseph and I spent a few months in a mastermind group together, and I just knew that one day the time would come when he and I would work together. That time is now.

Recently I took on a very large client contract and needed someone to steer the ship right when it came to Facebook and Google advertising. Joseph was my guy, and the results have been nothing short of amazing: a 90% decrease in spend for leads, way higher opt-in rates, and a happier client.

I had to bring Joseph onto the podcast to track this journey I’m on with him in real-time. You may not do a lot of online advertising yet, but this episode is here to help you get some initial insight on how these platforms work. A few questions I asked Joseph in this interview:

  • “How can a business or brand know whether Google Adwords or Facebook Ads is best for them?”
  • “What are the elements that make a Google Ads campaign successful?”
  • “When you are running a campaign, how do you determine the budget?”
  • “What’s your process of creating search ads?”
  • “What are some of the biggest mistakes you see in Google Ad campaigns?”
