Janelle and Matt’s Wedding and the Marketing Lessons it Offers

On October 8th, in Ogden, Utah, Janelle Page and Matt Misbach will seal their love by exchanging wedding vows in front of a large gathering of family, friends, neighbors and colleagues.

Theirs is not only a story of romance, it’s also a valuable lesson in personal branding and video marketing. Divorced and the mother of four, Janelle was having no luck attracting eligible suitors last year when she decided to apply her business experience - using video testimonials to help her clients generate more leads and make more sales - to the dating game.

Her 8 ½ minute autobiographical YouTube video, #ManHunt, spelled out exactly who she is, who she is looking for, and who need not apply. It worked.

Janelle and Matt share their tale this week on Monday Morning Radio with host and reputation coach Dean Rotbart. As Dean points out, mass marketing is great, but sometimes superfluous. “Whether you’re looking for a spouse, an employee, an investor, or a few new clients, laser-targeted marketing might just prove a perfect match for you as well,” Rotbart observes.

Janelle is the CEO of KickFire, based in Kaysville, UT. Her firm specializes in customized, laser-beam focused marketing campaigns.

Husband-and-wife team Kristie Foster and Ryan Newman share their entrepreneurial tale this week on Monday Morning Radio and disclose their blueprint for making a business splash from mermaid mania.

Dr. Bo Knows: Podcasts Deliver an Audience and Results

Is podcasting an effective marketing tool? 

Bo Bennett sure thinks so. The serial entrepreneur just launched his 7th podcast – The Dr. Bo Show. “Dr. Bo” – who has a Ph.D. in social psychology – finds that podcasts deliver a steady stream of customers for his various ventures, including online courses, public speaking, and ebooks. 

Why? Dr. Bo says many people have brains that are hardwired to be more receptive to audio input than reading or videos. (Where have we heard that before?) Join in this week on Monday Morning Radio and be counted among the audio cognoscenti.

GetOutfitted.com's Julian Flores on Executing Complex Business Operations

"All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dream with open eyes, to make it possible.”

When Lawrence of Arabia wrote those words, he could easily have been speaking of Julian Flores of GetOutfitted.com. Julian’s dream was that skiers from anywhere in the world would be able to rent all their ski gear with just a few clicks on a website – clothing, goggles, skis, boots and even action cameras – and have it delivered to their mountain lodge to await their arrival. 

To make this dream happen by the light of day is a logistical ballet worthy of NASA or Amazon.com. If your dream requires that you execute complex operations with incredible precision, you’ll definitely want to be wide awake when you listen to Julian Flores tell Dean Rotbart how his dream came alive – and went skiing – at MondayMorningRadio.com
