7 Unconventional Ways to Learn Marketing | Ep. #167  

In Episode #167, Eric and Neil discuss the 7 unconventional ways to learn marketing. You can learn in more ways than just reading a Dummies Guide or checking in at the next university. 

Time Stamped Show Notes: 00:27 - Today’s topic: 7 Unconventional Ways to Learn Marketing 00:33 – First is by watching conference videos on Youtube like Inbound 2016 by Hubspot 01:14 – There’s a lot of marketing content on Youtube 01:35 - Second is by networking with individuals 01:40 – Sharing a drink is a good way to do it 02:40 – Individual marketers from other companies share their tactics 03:00 – Third, strategize how to get the most out of conferences 03:19 – Check who’s attending and the influencers that will attend 04:00 – Fourth, practice on your own website 04:25 – The plugins on Wordpress can help you execute what you’ve learned 04:50 – “You have to test it on your own site to be very good” 04:55 – Fifth, access a mastermind 05:03 – There are digital marketers you can pay for about $25/month 05:09 – “There’s a lot of great masterminds out there and they do provide value” 05:34 – You can host a dinner at your house or a zoom meeting to talk about marketing/business issues 06:20 – Sixth, people have more perceived value over information when they pay for it 06:30 – There are free marketing materials, but if you really want to learn, paid information IS better 07:21 – Lastly, start a podcast 07:35 – You learn a lot from the people or from guests 08:08 – Pat Flynn has great information on starting a podcast 08:18 - That’s it for today’s episode! 3 Key Points: Youtube is probably one of the best sources now for everything, including marketing. Grow your network by inviting people to dinner or for a drink—you’re not only learning something new but you’re also building a relationship. People tend to value what they learn more when they pay for it.

The Devil & Mr. O - The Chest (12-01-42)  


The Chest (Aired December 1, 194)
After Arch Oboler left the show (1936), Wyllis Cooper created his horror "by raiding the larder." For the purposed of Lights Out sound effects, people were what they ate. The sound of a butcher knife rending a piece of uncooked pork was, when accompanied by shrieks and screams, the essence of murder to a listener alone at midnight. Real bones were broken - spareribs snapped with a pipe wrench. Bacon in a frypan gave a vivid impression of a body just electrocuted. And the cannibalism effect was actually a zealous actor. Cooper left the show in 1936 and Oboler was given the job. Oboler lost no time establishing himself as the new master of the macabre. Between May 1936 and July 1938, he wrote and directed more than 100 Lights Out plays. To follow Cooper was a challenge: he was "the unsung pioneer of radio dramatic techniques," but Oboler had passed the test with his first play. His own name soon became synonymous with murder and gore. THIS EPISODE: December 1, 1942. CBS network. "The Chest - The Story Of Mr. Maggs". Sponsored by: Ironized Yeast, Energene. A meek little man buys a locked trunk at an auction...and finds it filled with horror! Network, sponsored version. Arch Oboler (host), Frank Martin (announcer), Jane Morgan, Joseph Kearns. 32:15. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.
