Alright. Time for the ole switch-a-roo. As you know, this week is a special week on RISE as my book, Smarter, Faster, Cheaper: Non-Boring, Fluff-Free Strategies for Marketing and Promoting Your Business, is officially for sale everywhere online and offline TODAY (December 7th).
Normally, as you know, I bring in the most passionate, interesting, and unique entrepreneurs in the world to share their story so we can all learn from them. Someone came up with the idea of me being interviewed on my show to teach lessons from the book, so I decided to go with it for today’s episode.
For today’s RISE episode, the camera is turned on me by Danielle Smith. Danielle is an extremely talented entrepreneur (she will be back on the show to tell HER story in January), former news anchor, web host, and video blogger (Extraordinary Mommy). She has a new company launch in January called Danielle Smith Media – definitely worth keeping an eye on. You can connect with her on Twitter right here.
In this interview, Danielle grills me about lessons in the book that hustling entrepreneurs like you can apply right away. We talk about many things, including:
- A walkthrough of an example of smarter, faster, cheaper marketing with tips on how you can apply the principles.
- How to become a trusted resource online and off.
- The 20/80 rule of online content.
- Details on how The Rise To The Top started and grew to over 100,000 viewers a month in less than two years.
- …and much, much, much more.
As always, would LOVE your comments.
In honor of the book launch officially being today, we have put together some goodies for you right here on the launch week special page. If you nab the book today, you can win all kinds of cool stuff. And of course, you can get it on Amazon right here or at your local bookstore.
Thank you again for supporting the launch. It means a lot. And your business (and you) will be VERY happy that you did it.
