  • Hey David, 

    Thanks so much for having me as a guest. I look at the long list of amazing people you’ve had here and can’t help but wonder what I’m doing on that list :).  We need to get you back over to BlogcastFM for a chat as well. 

    • David Siteman Garland

      Absolutely! And be happy to come back on anytime. Big congrats on the sponsor.

  • I was so intrigued with your convo about  many brands not harnessing the power of blogging or in the internet as a whole. Years ago, my husband was in charge of online media buying for a large ad agency. He definetly agreed that brands that solely wanted the click through “metric” where missing the boat. I wanted to ad that the part not mentioned is that large brands are not doing their own media buying so they hire that out to media agencies for placement. There are some forward thinking agencies out there who understand the power  and ROI that you all where discussing but not nearly enough. SOOOOO what a wonderful opportunity for you both to begin consulting for these agencies or even directly to brands themselves, right? They don’t have the time  (well, they probably do but are not taking it) and obviously they are not plugged into the niches that you all are. Woo-hoo! Like you don’t have enough to do but a fabulous opportunity 🙂 for both of you.

    • David Siteman Garland

      Monica – Definitely some good points and totally get what you are saying (and agree!). I know from my end, my priority in terms of brands at the moment is securing the right partnerships/sponsorships for The Rise To The Top/booking entertainment gigs (i.e. emceeing, spokesperson, on camera work, etc.) as opposed to consulting but definitely a good idea!

      • Oh I know it was just an idea and truthfully your “sweet spot” is exactly what you are doing and I see a bright future for you in the entertainment gig arena…
