My article two weeks ago, “The Diversification of Search (and Your Marketing Budget),” seems to be coming true faster than I had anticipated. In this marketing podcast with Dave Weatherholt, I detail the recent news of Microsoft increasing user privacy in the new Internet Explorer 10– and how that will impact business’s search engine marketing campaigns, like Google AdWords.
Listen as Dave Weatherholt and I discuss small business marketing with Yelp. Since “Getting Down to Business” airs in Alaska, we focus on the Anchorage Yelp market, but these marketing tips can apply to any small business in any city. Here’s what we cover:
What Yelp is and what it does
The kinds of people who leave reviews on Yelp
The local pages Yelp provides for each city
What marketing opportunities Yelp offers your business
For the first “Getting Down to Business” of 2012, Dave Weatherholt and I teamed up to talk small business planning. Dave covered some important financial steps every small business should take, while I focused on marketing tips to get your marketing plan in shape for the coming year. I’ve linked to the entire show, so enjoy an hour of Getting Down to Business!
In Alaska, the Pebble Partnership has been marketing into the headwinds, faced with stiff opposition. This partnership is owned by two mining companies and is investigating the feasibility of mining one of the most significant discoveries in North America of copper, molybdenum and gold.
In this marketing podcast, learn how the Pebble Partnership addresses their opposition with a positive attitude and how it can help your business think about your competition. And get some great tips for growing grassroots marketing supporters, too.
In this marketing podcast, I talk about word of mouth marketing- the marketing strategy for getting referrals. Word of Mouth Marketing is the most powerful way to get new customers. Why do I think that and what can you do to improve your referrals? Listen to find out!
Recently, my colleague David Weatherholt sponsored a young 4-Her raising a pig. He brought her on his radio show, “Getting Down to Business”(in Anchorage on Fox News Talk 1020), to discuss the adventures of young entrepreneurialism.
This topic inspired me to do my Marketing Matters segment on farm marketing. Just like with 4-H, farms need to keep their marketing fun and creative. I’ve had some experience with marketing farms. My brother’s family owns Legacy Farms Boer Goats, my niece and nephew show animals, and several of my acquaintance are farmers. In my podcast, there are many interesting tips that you can start applying today.
You don’t need to own a farm to enjoy this show, though. I’ve included David’s interview with Grace, the 4-Her, and many of my marketing ideas apply to any small business.
On David Weatherholt’s radio program “Getting Down to Business,” I explored further the concept that marketing is everything. Every interaction customer have with your business affects your brand. But what does “brand” mean?
A synonym for “brand” is “reputation.” It’s as simple as that. Everything you do, whether it be a traditional marketing interaction or not, affects your reputation. To your customers, marketing is everything you do.

Keeping your small business marketing approach current with your customers
You know that the marketplace changes rapidly, and you have to change your business model with it. But how do you know which changes to make? It’s simple. Ask your customers.

Russell successfully changed his marketing approach- and company name- to fit the needs of his marketplace. I detail how all small businesses can keep their fingers to the pulse of the marketplace by conducting simple, thorough research with their customers.
