SPI 760: Series Marketing is Serious Marketing

#760 "If you like this, smash that subscribe button!" We always hear this nowadays. But people don't subscribe because they enjoy a single piece of content. They subscribe because they see value in what's coming next. Most creators get this wrong! In this episode, I want to share a strategy that's working really well for me right now. This is a great way to grow your audience as a podcaster, blogger, YouTuber, or creator of any kind. Once you understand the thought process behind getting new subscribers, I'll need you to do one specific thing. The next time you're coming up with ideas for content, consider creating a series. That's right—think about a sequence of posts on the same theme. There's a right and wrong way to do this, so tune in today for the tips that make all the difference!

SPI 752: How to Convert Followers into Customers with Jeff Gargas

#752 Many of us would hate to come across as too salesy. In fact, we often overcorrect to the point where it's difficult for people to buy from us. But here's the thing—if you have a good product, you're doing your audience a disservice by not providing simple opportunities to access it. You're also not doing yourself any favors because making money allows you to stay in business, serve more people, and do more good! So, how do you create a clear and easy pathway from your free content to your paid products? Jeff Gargas of TeachBetter.com is our guest host today. In this Teaching Friday session, he will run you through a powerful exercise to show you how to convert more than ever without relying on sleazy marketing tactics.

SPI 750: Why You Have to Bring People Together

#760 Hot take—the algorithms are breaking our brains! You see, before we each had personalized feeds on every platform, people were more or less tuning in for the same cultural events. The series finale of M*A*S*H had over one hundred million viewers, and seventy-six million people watched the Seinfeld finale. That's crazy! Is losing this connection with one another contributing to the loneliness epidemic in some way? I brought this up in my [Unstuck] (https://www.smartpassiveincome.com/unstuck) newsletter because it's an important topic. If you haven't already, make sure to subscribe to get my quick weekly updates! So, what can we do as leaders and creators to bring our people together? As you know, this is the focus at SPI with the online communities we're running. But I want to help you do something similar for your audience.
