Today’s quote of the week comes from Gary Vaynerchuk:
“The best marketing strategy ever: Care.”
1. Gold Mine for Marketing Knowledge
The Marketing Millenials post marketing advice daily that could save a failing marketing team, if implemented correctly. Their recommendations are especially relevant for one-man businesses, where you do everything yourself. This makes it easier, but even more crucial, to have the right fundamentals in place.
Definitely worth leaving a follow for regular reminders, and fruit for thought, on how you should think about and execute your marketing.
Here are 2 examples of their posts – one with educational theory and one with entertaining inspiration. That’s what you can expect from them, always delivered in a bite-sized and fun format.
2. The Best Talk I’ve Ever Watched
Alain do Botton is the deliverer of one of my favorite talks ever. Alain runs the School of Life, and is a modern-day philosopher, writer and speaker.
This one-hour talk focuses on emotional education, which goes deeper than any professional field and touches on the human experience at large. I would recommend this talk to absolutely everyone.
3. Inspirational Podcast for Car Rides
Recently, this podcast has got me excited about commuting, as it enables me to enjoy another one of their episodes.
You’ll get the perspectives and experiences of people from all corners of the business and creative industries—the vibe is the perfect mix of case studies and chats with a friend.
You’ll hear powerful stories from makers, marketers, and leaders like the CEOs of Zoom and Patreon, execs from Adobe and Disney, and creators like writer Tim Urban, comedian Sarah Cooper and photographer Chase Jarvis.
I also appreciate Jay’s “One-Shot” monologue episodes where he tackles a single topic for 20 minutes or less in a single take.
4. Life Cycle of a Company of One
This fascinating story from Justin Welsh greatly encaptures the life cycle of a one-person online company. He covers finding a niche, pivoting, and building different (automated) income streams, all while continuously growing an audience and increasing revenue.
In many regards, he did it the smart way, but he also admits that during many phases, he didn’t have full confidence in what the next step should be. So he trusted his gut feeling, winged it, and things worked out. They usually do when you stay persistent and work hard. They won’t if you never start or quit.
Read the story below; I certainly found inspiration from this.
See you again next week.
