Unheard of Way to Monetize Your Podcast

Unheard of Way to Monetize Your Podcast

No more not knowing who’s coming to your website, convert more leads and get a free trial at Leadfeeder.com

My approach to monetizing your podcast is different than most. Not only have I made my podcast a sponsored show (with real money), but I've also helped several other podcasters generate their first paid sponsorship.

This interview was originally aired on Linda Melone's B2B Healthy Copytalks podcast.

Working with B2C Creators for successful B2B Marketing campaigns with Delia Pitu.

Working with B2C Creators for successful B2B Marketing campaigns with Delia Pitu.

No more not knowing who’s coming to your website, convert more leads and get a free trial at Leadfeeder.com

Delia Pitu's approach to B2B marketing is different than most. She's the co-founder of Nude Digital agency. And what I like about them is that they utilize B2B creators to create user generated content for B2B campaigns. But the creators don't actually publish any content. Instead, they take the content produced and test it on Facebook and other channels. 

Results?

Well, they're kickin butt and staying ahead of the curve in this ever changing b2b marketing landscape.

How to throw a cocktail networking party (and make new friends)

How to throw a cocktail networking party (and make new friends)

I share my easy to follow process on how to host cocktail parties that grow your network.

In the past 18 months, I hosted 8 of them across different cities. Most of the guests I had never met in person, but they were all interesting people I wanted to meet. They are a great way to deepen relationships and help bridge connections with other people. You can host one with these simple to follow steps.

The original interview was a conversation I had with Michal Domanski on his Doman Network show.
