In This Episode You’ll Learn:
In this episode, Casanova and Mark talk about create better content in less time, so you can really focus on what they love.
Through his podcast show ‘The After Hours Entrepreneur’, Mark helps his viewers learn how to evolve with the new technologies, the new ways to communicate, staying top of mind, building know, like, and trust, so that they can drive more leads.
When Mark started his journey into social media management, podcast, coaching, digital media help; it was all about family. He is trying to build these processes, these systems, build out a team so that he could spend more time with the people I love—my wife, my two kids.
Mark believes that social media is a powerful tool, and if you can stay top of mind, provide valuable information, then you’re going to be the person that they call. For those looking to make their content stick out and valuable, Mark says that it depends on your business and on your goals.
He further adds that what’s really important is that you’re always trying new things, but you’re not obsessed with the new things. If you’re not actually carving out time to try the new thing, you’re going to miss out, you always got to be trying the new thing.
Mark describes that the goal behind creating content should be that you are trying to solve someone’s problem. You should try to give someone a quick win. As a realtor, create content that addresses the common questions and common concerns.
Mark is huge in podcasting, and adds that podcasting and repurposing is another huge way to build know, like, and trust. Now, whenever someone DMs him on Instagram about anything, he directs them to the similar content on his YouTube channel.
Once they go through the videos, and they want to learn more, then maybe they can hop on a call, and go a level deeper. He adds that it takes time for everyone to see you as an expert and it comes with that consistency.
Mark adds that although podcasting has many advantages, you should have an end goal in mind. Mark also focuses on how he can build out the infrastructure from his podcasts. So, a 30-minute conversation could end up being hours of rewatchable, bingeable content for people.
For people looking to start a podcast, Mark says that you can absolutely start a podcast on a shoestring budget. You can buy all of your hardware for less than a hundred, use free audio editing and publishing platforms to get your content out.
To gain credibility, Mark says that you have to be consistent. Furthermore, when it comes to your podcast, you don’t really want to be selling. You also have to be authentic and let your personality shine through.
Mark adds that nowadays, you can target your audience via ads based on demographic, interest, location, etc. Cas adds that he or she, who spends the most to acquire a new customer, then they win, because attention is the new currency.
Talking about the Clubhouse app, Mark says that it’s the same rule across every social media plan form in, you have to create, and on Clubhouse is a little bit scary, because you’re getting on a stage.
If you want success on Clubhouse, it’s about getting on stage and sharing either valuable questions that are going to extract valuable information, or it’s about giving that valuable information.
As for using Clubhouse for podcasting, Mark adds that your content does not remain on the platform. In podcasting, you’re there in perpetuity. You can build up this momentum and if someone hears you on Clubhouse and they want more, they can go binge on your content from your podcast.
Cas says that Clubhouse can be used to generate leads for free. Mark adds that in all of his years on social media, nothing has driven more leads, more people into his atmosphere than Clubhouse.
Clubhouse is a good way of standing out and just really connecting with someone on a deeper level than just an Instagram deal. Talking about something he wishes he had started early to accelerate his journey, Mark says that he wishes he would have started experimenting and trying new things sooner.
His ‘aha’ moment that changed the needle for him was a conversation he had with his grandfather, who shared a binder full of memories with him. Mark adds that for him, it is about legacy and thinking about what you want your binder to look like when you’re talking to your grandkid.
Mark thinks that it’s important to have a vision moving forward, but if you just focus on, ‘I’m just gonna be a little bit better each day’, it’s exponential the way it’s not linear. Focus on how you can be a little bit better than yesterday.
