As you read this I’m en-route to my old home town of London, England. I’ll be attending Chris Ducker’s Youpreneur summit, picking up on his ideas about building personal brands, while working and strategizing with one of our VIP clients. Super excited for many breakthroughs and learnings—and most importantly, for the relationships that spark by showing up and investing and being part of meaningful intensive learning. It got me thinking about just how many ways we’ve grown to serve our clients and help them double down on their marketing strategy. It’s our 15th year in business and we’ve declared this year our year of giving back! Looking to make a big impact in your marketing or even your industry? Here are 3 ways we’re showing up, giving back, and marketing through helping others: Keynote Speaking I had the joy last week of delivering the closing keynote to the Canadian Water Quality Association at their annual conference. My topic was “Social 2020—What every business needs to be doing as we go into 2020 to maximize their online visibility.” It was met with an overwhelmingly positive response and has already lead to multiple requests for our help. Do you attend association conferences? Know any that need a Keynote Speaker next year? We’d love to share the stage and inspire your colleagues too. Just send a note back or check out my speaking website: jonathanchristian.ca. Guest Spots I love being asked to share what we’ve learned in business. Recently I was one of the early guests on HubSpots’s new podcast, “HubSpot Sprocket Talk.” A geniusly short (15-minute) podcast and YouTube video series. I shared one of our core teachings: 21st Century Relationship Building. It's a unique way to use social media, and has been my practice since the beginning—I’d love to know what you think about it. Check out the episode and subscribe here! There are many other great 15-minute episodes from other great marketing minds from around the world. Webinars and Training Perhaps the greatest secret to our success, being to help so many entrepreneurs is what we call Live Leverage. Over the past 3 years, we’ve developed 4 live courses that we deliver in sequence around the calendar year. This has been the best value that we can offer, as the price of our training and consulting is divided across the whole group. People pay a fraction of our 1-on-1 consulting fees but still get direct access to me and our team and get the perfect balance of group support and laser coaching. We just started our 3-month Power Content course. Lindsay and I go deep each week on you can use Content Marketing as your key strategy for getting known, inspire others, and drastically reduce your sales cycle. Leading up to this course, we had 100 registrants for our free live training session. People love connecting via video—it creates a great feeling of community and contribution.
