Leveling Up: Simple Steps Marketers Can Take To Move Their Careers to the Next Level
Eric Siu likes to say he was never successful athletically. And while he might have struggled between the lines, there was one arena in which he thrived: the digital one. Eric always found comfort when it came to video games, where for years, he dominated as a successful esports player. For Eric, success in gaming was rooted in the mindset that failure was his and his alone, but that regardless of the struggle, the next level was always within reach..That mantra is something he still follows today. _“I think marketers have to understand that there are levels to everything, and _there are_ levels of your career, _there are_ levels to when you're working out, and _there are_ levels of games. If you can reframe life into a game, if you can reframe business into a game, it just becomes a lot easier and a lot more fun.”_ Eric is an investor, founder and advisor to companies. He is also the Chairman of the digital marketing agency, Single Grain. On this episode of Marketing Trends, Eric dives into what it means to have a leveling-up mindset and some of the steps that marketers can take to move up in their careers. Plus, Eric details the two key areas marketers should be honing in on when it comes to optimizing their website. Main Takeaways: * Built for Speed: When you’re trying to optimize your website for search, you have to be thinking about the things that matter most, which are content and links. Part of having good content is having a great user experience, and that means having a fast website. Always be thinking about how you can make your website faster and easier to consume. * The Right Mix: It’s important when you are sourcing talent to find the right mix of employees who can excel in multiple areas. It might sound simple, but it’s not. Most marketers are not great product people and the same can be said for product personnel. Look for people who can manage both sides of the coin. * The Long Game: At the end of the day, you have to always be thinking about long-term success and not what is happening in the short-term. Constantly be thinking about where you can get the most untapped potential and then leverage that into something that will benefit you in the long-term. --- Marketing Trends podcast is brought to you by Salesforce.

The Power of Audio with Audioburst founder and CEO Amir Hirsh
On this 248th episode of "Marketing Today," host Alan Hart speaks with Amir Hirsh, the chief executive officer and founder at Audioburst. This AI-powered audio discovery platform helps connect content consumers with relevant audio clips. Our conversation starts with how people have a tendency to call Hirsh crazy due to his innovative and forward-thinking. Hirsh discusses how 2020 acted as gasoline on the audio fire and how "audio connects people much stronger and creates brand affinity." In the last year alone, the podcast industry more than doubled in size as more and more people crave content that doesn't hurl visuals at their eyeballs. We then dive into Hirsh's company Audioburst and how it has "built an AI engine that listens to that vast amount of content," analyzes, and cuts it into short clips to make it more discoverable on the internet. Hirsh explains the massive opportunities that await marketers who can create or participate in their own audio content, as well as sponsor and attach their name to the audio content of others. The power of audio lies in the fact that "it can pretty much follow you throughout your day without interrupting whatever it is that you're doing at that moment in time." No matter how many people call him crazy, Hirsh sticks to the guiding principle that has gotten him here. "As long as you are true to yourself, you'll be a happier and more contributing person in life." Highlights from this week's "Marketing Today": As an entrepreneur that has spent his life in innovation and forward-thinking, Amir has been called crazy plenty of times. 1:13 2020 saw the audio industry explode with more people connecting via audio and technology than ever. 2:20 Podcasting doubled to 5.5 million podcasts in 2020 alone as more and more time has been spent at home. 2:54 Consuming content through the ears rather than the eyes frees up the consumer to do so much more. 3:40 Though Amazon was a little bit late to the audio game, it has positioned itself to be the 800lb gorilla in the room. 4:27 Voice penetration through Alexa will allow Amazon to push audio content at an entirely new level. 5:36 It's vital for marketers to think about audio as it becomes more available in all industries. 6:40 People can connect with brands at a much higher rate through audio than just being bombarded with visuals. 7:10 If you are not moving your ads into the audio dimension, you miss out on half of the consumers' attention span. 8:00 Amir started Audioburst to help podcasts and other audio connect with internet searchers. 9:27 By adding as much metadata as possible to the audio clips, Audioburst makes audio much more discoverable. 11:00 Other than making it accessible, Audioburst aims to make audio easy to use on many different platforms. 11:42 Currently, Audioburst partners with the likes of Samsung and Hyundai to integrate into multiple industries. 13:31 Rather than answering questions with an automated voice, Audioburst provides an audio clip from an expert in that field. 15:15 Audio finds its power in its ability to follow you around throughout the day without interrupting your activities. 16:44 Brands and marketers should be open to opportunities both in audio and on audio. 17:56 Opportunities in audio involve brands and marketers creating their own audio content, whether producing or being interviewed. 18:24 Placing a brand around a playlist, podcast, or audio event is how brands can participate in audio. 19:28 Amir attributes all the ups and downs that created his personality as someone that remains true to himself. 22:00 Looking back, Amir thinks it's important never to lose your inner child as you go through the ride of life. 24:26 It's important to actively care about the world you live in and the people around you. 27:30 There's still time for brands and marketers to get in on the audio pie, but the longer they wait, the more they risk missing out. 29:00   Resources Mentioned: Audioburst Amir Hirsh $1B M&A Audio Market Amazon Music, Audible, Alexa Spotify launches audiobooks   Subscribe to the podcast: Listen in iTunes (link: Listen in Google Podcasts (link: Listen in Spotify (Link: ) Connect with the Guest: Connect with Marketing Today and Alan Hart:   Support the show: See for privacy information.

How To Raise Successful Kids To Be Winners
Check Out: My Integrated Life Micro-Doc - -- As a 3x successful business-owner and founder, my biggest fears about having kids were: * I would be an absent father * I would accidentally raise entitled kids Those two thoughts made me sweat. I was terrified. I was good at business... but what about being a good father? What if I messed it up? I thought maybe my obsessive drive meant I shouldn’t ever have children. Kids aren’t something you can quit if it goes wrong. So when my wife Renée fell pregnant, it lit a burning need in me to get good at the one thing I felt afraid of. I NEEDED to be an authentic and present father for my children. I had to get good at this. I hired the best mentors, coaches and parenting experts, I took the classes, read the books… I trained. Hard. And I’m not perfect. Many of my lessons weren’t taught to me from a book, they were learned from mistakes. But today I’d like to share a new video with the most valuable lessons I can offer you. Here is how to raise successful kids to be winners. My kids are the biggest blessing that’s ever happened to me. I wasn’t expecting it… I was so afraid about not giving them the right life that I never stopped to think about how much love and light they would bring into mine When Renée got pregnant, we were living in San Francisco and I had just closed a round of $1.6M in funding for my company Clarity. 3 months after the birth of our first son we found out we were having another. Max and Noah are 11 months apart, and I LOVE my boys with all my heart. That’s why this video is so important to me. I’m proud to say I overcame my fears and I am 100% a family man AND an entrepreneur at the same time. But the only way I got there was by truly living the lessons I discovered and shared in today’s video. Check it out and drop a comment with your best parenting advice. We all could use it. -- Dan Martell is a serial entrepreneur, an investor in 40+ startups like Intercom, Udemy, and Unbounce and the creator of SaaS Academy, helping over 500 B2B SaaS founders scale faster.
