New Internet Radio Interview: What’s So New About New Marketing?

One of the fun things about having written a book about Internet marketing is getting to do interviews. Thanks to Susan Scher of the BlogTalkRadio show, “In Other Words” for the opportunity to take a full hour to discuss why I think that understanding the new dimensions of online communications is so important. Among other things, the interview (linked below) covered topics like “what’s so different about New Marketing,” authenticity, the rise of online video, the empowered consumer, social media marketing, my Attract/Engage/Relate approach to sales funnels, content marketing, and much more. Please enjoy and let me know what think.

Radio Interview: Listen Now to Better Understand the New Marketing Landscape

I was delighted to be interviewed by my friends at the Hoffman Institute Foundation on their Hoffman Connection Internet radio program hosted by VoiceAmerica. It was fortuitous and synchronistic that the interview was scheduled (as it turns out) on September 11th, just one day after my new book, “Internet Marketing: 8 Key Concepts Every Business MUST Know” went live on Amazon (and on what would have been my mother’s 99th birthday.)

The energy was sparkling, it seemed to me, over the course of this hour-long program. With interviewers Hoffman Institute co-founder, Raz Ingrasci, and Hoffman teacher and psychotherapist, Ed McClune, we explored some of the main ideas in my “8 Concepts” including the role of authenticity in marketing (not an oxymoron), the different types of Internet marketing (SEO, PPC and social media), what makes New Marketing different from Old Marketing, how I decided to self-publish the book, and much more.

I hope you enjoy this free audio program and I sincerely look forward to your feedback. Thanks for listening!

Internet Talk Radio Coming of Age?

I had a solid hit of viability listening to some Internet radio shows this morning. I linked through from an inspirational email to Hayhouse Radio and listened to some pretty solid motivational/spiritual content. Then, I picked up on the fact that the provider was wsRadio.com and began listening to an SEO Radio show about search engine optimization. All the wsRadio.com shows seem to be well implemented via an Active X player that worked fine on the Mac and each program is nicely supported by RSS feeds to promote return listeners. Professional quality. Well done. And, a welcome addition to the broadcasting landscape. On-demand radio will ultimately rule.
