Ep 34 - The State of Marketing in the Education System as Told By the Most Educated Man on the Planet, Bryan McCleod, JD, PhD, MBA, BA, HS Diploma, and Maybe More...
4013

Welcome back to the Marketing Geeks podcast where we do the research so you don't have to. Today, we are joined by, quite possibly, the most educated man on the planet, Bryan McCleod. Bryan has an MBA, a PhD, and a JD along with passing the bar exam. He also has a Bachelors Degree and probably a high school diploma. Bryan has practiced as a lawyer and currently is a college marketing professor in the state of South Carolina. We invited him on the show to discuss how marketing is being taught in an age where technology changes happen much faster than textbooks can be printed. How have things changed for marketing education in the digital age. Bryan will share his philosophy for teaching his students and we will discuss several topics related to how millennials and the youth of today view marketing.

Ep 33 - Fyre Festival Marketing and Why Psychopaths Make Effective Marketers...
3391

You've seen the Netflix and Hulu documentaries, you've read the horror stories, but what really was behind the Fyre Festival and it's sudden rise to prominence. In today's episodes, the investigative reporters known as the Marketing Geeks will examine the influencer marketing strategies and general marketing principles that were utilized to build fast, effective, and massive buzz about the Fyre Festival. The techniques that were exercised were often nefarious and with manipulative intent, but we are simply analyzing why they worked.


Additionally, we will look at Billy McFarland, the man behind the Fyre Festival as well as the millennial black card company, Magnesis. Billy has run multiple shady companies and seems to lack empathy in hurting other people. Based on his patterns, we discuss how he may or may not meet the characteristics of someone with psychopathic tendencies. In fact, research has shown that psychopaths tend to either end up in prison or rise to the position of CEOs. It's a very fascinating topic and we go deep into why they are effective in business and marketing as well as how a lack of empathy can create short term gains, but create bigger long term problems.


As always, there will be geek news, marketing news, and of course, the world famous, number one podcast Sex Robot report in the world. 


Listen in for an amazing episode and incredible content. Today, we are sponsored by both Anchor.fm, a podcast hosting network where this podcast is currently being hosted, as well as by www.bannerseason.com. 


BannerSeason is an awesome card and gift online platform which provides unique personalization and it designed for business owners. Business owners can send personalized cards along with gifts that are custom designed and can include customer names on each individual item. Gifts available are mugs, water bottles, calendars, brownies, cake, golf balls, and more.

Ep 32 - The Art of the Customer Avatar and Why Marketers Dont Want You To Know About Them...
3929

In this episode, Justin Womack and Andros Sturgeon reveal the art and science behind creating a customer avatar. We dive deep into the concepts, practices, and reasons why avatar creation is critical to attracting the right kinds of clients for your business. We even define the term once and for all.

In fact, history has shown that more primitive marketers have tried to bury these techniques from the general public. They have remained hidden from the vast majority of people, at least, until now. The Marketing Geeks have grabbed our shovels and we have unearthed the truth and unlocked the secrets so that you, our audience, can know the truth.

If you are a fan of the show, we encourage you to become a supporter of the show to receive bonus content. Subscribers that contribute $4.99 a month to the podcast will receive replay files for all of our past webinar trainings along with verbal shout outs on the show.  So, if you enjoy the show and want the content, that's an option for you. If you do donate, please contact us as well (info below) so that we know where to send your files.

Also, we have a variety of sponsors this year and we want to feature one of them, BannerSeason.

BannerSeason is a personalized card and gift platform designed for business owners to develop deeper relationships with their clients so that they buy more, refer more, and become raving fans. With this software, business owners can create one-off gifts such as mugs, tape measures, water bottles, or even golf balls featuring either your own logo or the logo of one of your clients. As the platform is designed for one-off orders, it can be very effective to send your clients a mug with their logo or picture on it to develop that relationship. You will be amazed at the wow factor generated from these gifts.

To create an account, go to www.BannerSeason.com and use Invitation Code "START". You would then need to deposit a minimum of $25 to unlock all the features of the software. This money would apply for future gift or card purchases and is only required for activation. There are no required monthly fees or monthly minimums when using the software.

To get started, go to www.BannerSeason.com with invitation code "START."

If you have ideas for a future episode of Marketing Geeks, want to introduce us to potential guests, or want to be a guest yourself, either contact us through social media (links below) or email us at realmarketinggeeks@gmail.com . We are kind of lazy with setting up a more professional URL for the time being so you can use that one for now.
