The future of digital marketing… Seriously?

Yep, it’s revealed in this podcast. And if you don’t believe me, decide for yourself.

 

About Pete


2 mins
the future of digital marketing

Pete is a normal guy. 

Band Nerd. 

Majored in music… and then decided to quit before finishing. 

He did the odd job, then tried more college degrees. 

And finished in the most exciting career path known to man…

No not astronauting…

Accounting!

He found the American dream and jumped straight into the script, only to find he was miserable 🙁

And so he did what everyone else does (or do they?)… 

Blogged.

 

Why do Some Projects not Work? 


14 mins

 

Pete tried loads of blogs/ business ideas (around 50 in 10 years!) So he has a good idea of what does and more importantly for us… what does not work.

Main lesson:

He found that he didn’t give his blogs the time to grow. 

 

It takes more time than you think.

 

As a general rule, you should plan what you expect to happen and times it by 3!

 

Breaking the $10k per month barrier!


20 mins

 

14 months into Pete’s current website, Do You Even Blog, he made over $10K in one month (November 2018). Here is his $9,663 July 2018 report.

 

He’s now working on funnels to be more personalised and automated to create more passive income. This just so happens to be a sneak peek into what WILL help you stand out like Shaquille O’Neil at a midgets convention.

Pete is a big fan of creating his own products.

However, if you are just starting out then creating paid products is not the way to go.

 

With the right audience you can do anything

 

Your focus should be on growing your audience. 

To do this you need to tell the same story on everything!

 

To monetise a website early on you can use advertising (this is not recommended for some niches i.e. digital marketing can detract trust) and affiliate marketing.

But one of Pete’s regrets is focusing on monetising his website(s) too soon.

So let’s just reel these off:

  1. Get fast internet
  2. Turn the sensitivity on your trackpad/ mouse to the max! 100% DO THIS!!
  3. Type faster- if your typing speed is under 75 then improve this (Pete’s is over 100… mine is 48 aka new challenge for me this week!) click here to test yourself
  4. Make your content hyper personalised and timely (check out Brennan Dunn’s stuff doubleyourfreelancing.com)

 

Main takeaway:

The future of digital marketing is going to be HYPER personalised and timely.

 

You heard it here first! (well I did anyway)

Confronting Self Doubt

There’s no easy answer here but I think Pete did a great job:

  1. Receive real feedback- although you can’t plan for this!
  2. A close group of people that are doing what you’re doing i.e. a mastermind group

 

Finding people that are doing what you are doing is SOOOO important. Because it’s unlikely that many people you know will be doing something exactly like you. 

It helps for motivation, accountability and sanity!

Find them, engage, stay in contact.

The Future of Digital Marketing Summary


There are so many little gems in this chat with Pete. I highly recommend listening to the section on optimising your time from 31-46 minutes if you’re looking for some game-changing results with your digital marketing. 

 

Here are my top 5 takeaways from this chat:

  1. Optimise your job- you don’t have to quit straight away you can have a side hustle and security. 
  2. Build a community- it doesn’t have to be massive even a few people that you really help!
  3. Mastermind group- find like-minded people doing the SAME thing
  4. Make content personalised and timely- This is the FUTURE!
  5. Don’t do what everyone else is doing

 

And are you beginning to see that the future of digital marketing is going to be personalised and timely?
