Eric Greenspan Radio Ignite Live Leave a Comment

Sometimes, we have to just be who we are. I’m a bit of a techie, and I’m not afraid to admit it. I’ll geek out today on Radio Ignite Live and talk about my favorite gadgets and tech. I mean seriously, a self heating mug? You wouldn’t believe how much I love this thing. So does the wife. And Sonos…oh my. Music everywhere, voice controlled (sort of), and Alexa, you know the name. But there will be a few other surprises too! Be sure to tune in or catch the recording on just about any platform out there!

Radio Ignite Live – Travel In 2019

So you buy a plane ticket for $100. What a deal. But wait, then you have to pay for your seat, another $69. Then it’s $49 for a checked bag or $55 for a carry on. You can spend another $50 to board early and you can upgrade to a seat that is actually sized for an average human for another $50. Food cost $12. Drinks are free. Cocktails are still pretty cheap too. Did I mention you need to get to most airports 2 hours early these days just to get through security? What a mess. We’ll discuss today on Radio Ignite Live.

Radio Ignite Live – Customer Service And The Benefit Of The Doubt

Eric Greenspan Radio Ignite Live Leave a Comment

Tax season is over; time to work ON your business. Let’s start with customer service and support. How many times have you contacted support or customer service and the response is “Oh, well, that is not available here…” or “No, it must be something on your end…” or “That sounds great, but it’s not something we can help you with.” It’s infuriating. Zapier is one great example of a company that DOES NOT do this. They always reply with, “Hey Eric, let me make sure I understand your question. So what you are asking or trying to do is…” and after I reply I usually get something with this tone, “Hmmm, I’m not sure if we can but I’m definitely sure we can try. Let’s work together on this and see what we can come up with.” Refreshing right? But why is this not the norm? Why do we often feel as if the company we pay for service is doubting us and immediately determining what we are asking is not in fact valid or possible? Why do companies behave this way? Simple…management and owners allow it. In fact, they create it. The attitude of the owner is always found in the response of its support team. This needs to change, but more importantly, we, as service providers, must never allow it to happen in our organizations. We’ll discuss this in detail on today’s Radio Ignite Live.

Radio Ignite Live – What’s A Bot And How Can They Help My Company

Eric Greenspan Radio Ignite Live Leave a Comment

You hear them when you call the airlines, or Apple, or just about any large company today. They’re getting better and we hate them less. Websites use them; I use them on all my sites. What the heck is this madness? What is a bot? What does it do? How can it help me? Are bots a good thing? I’ll answer all these questions and more in today’s Radio Ignite Live. Or maybe 74D2 my bot will, who knows. P.S. It’s not what you think it is. Bots aren’t taking over the world. They’re just extensions and automations of…well…us.

Radio Ignite Live – Website Hosting, Security and SEO

Eric Greenspan Radio Ignite Live Leave a Comment

Website hosting may seem like it’s just a commodity but a great web host can make the difference between lost data, downtime, lost sales due to performance issues, and the ability to drive traffic to your site depends on all of these things. Maintenance, backup, and support are truly important and the difference in cost between a decent web host and a great web host is nominal. We’ll talk all about it on today’s Radio Ignite Live.

Radio Ignite Live – Getting Organized – Do You Have Helicopter Vision Of Your Life

Eric Greenspan Radio Ignite Live Leave a Comment

When you go to bed, do you feel like you have a clear picture of where you are with your tasks for the day, what remains to be done, and what you accomplished? Would your clients agree? Do you sleep well knowing you have a system in place that works and you literally have “helicopter vision” of your entire practice, business, or life? Can you see it all from above, clearly and confidently so when you wake up tomorrow you will hit the ground running with a plan for the day? Today on Radio Ignite Live we’ll discuss organization and what you need to do to get things done, keep track of what has been accomplished, what needs to be, and for which clients or family member. We’ll discuss how each day you spend a certain defined amount of time doing nothing but organizing tasks, lists, your office, your kitchen, your mind, and your life. Organization brings it all together, and it brings happier clients, better sleep, and a happier, richer life.

Radio Ignite Live – Syncing Data In The Cloud – QuickBooks To Insightly To Mailchimp To Xero

Eric Greenspan Radio Ignite Live Leave a Comment

One of my regular tasks as an automating workflow marketer with a technology background is to sync data across different apps. The cloud has opened this opportunity up, but also made it a challenge. We use tools like Zapier (one way) and piesync (bi-directional or one way) to get the job done. We’ll discuss how these tools are used for helping you reduce overhead and market your business, automatically. The importance of syncing data reliably is part of the discussion, but if you have 1000 QuickBooks customers and you’ve not emailed them lately about your new services, DO NOT MISS THIS SHOW!

Radio Ignite Live – Does Creating Content For Your Website Really Work

Eric Greenspan Radio Ignite Live Leave a Comment

I’m doing exactly that right now. Yesterday I had a meeting with someone interested in hiring us because he read my book. He will be joining the Ignite System soon. Today someone contacted me because of yesterday’s Radio Ignite Live episode. Last week someone attended a live event and joined 74 Learning. Yes, it works fabulously. You just have to create content, share content, and stay the course. I added over 4,000 pieces of content to my social networks today, spread out over the next several months. It took me a couple hours to set it all up and now I don’t have to worry about it until the Fall. Leads will continue to flow. My business will continue to grow. We’ll discuss this in detail today on Radio Ignite Live.

Radio Ignite Live – You Should You Be Doing Your Own Podcast And How To Get Started

Eric Greenspan Radio Ignite Live Leave a Comment

I have been marketing for my various companies and my clients for many, many years. I’ve created radio shows on major networks, worked with the best talent, built studios and programs, and flown all over the country to promote and syndicate. It was a ton of work.

Today, I have a Blue Yeti microphone, a boom arm, Zoom and Adobe Audition. I also have a son who made a great intro/outro guitar riff for me. But beyond that, I just get up, think up a topic (like this one) and spend 15 minutes live on my show talking. Then I produce it with Adobe Audition, publish it to Soundcloud. Next, my automation kicks in and shares it with my audience via email and social networks. It’s then syndicated to iTunes, Spotify, Tunein, Stitcher, Google Play Music, Pandora and more. It takes less than a half hour each day and my website hits double on show days. I make sales or schedule new consultations directly after shows.

It’s fun, it’s easy and you should be doing. Today, I’ll talk about how to get started and what you need to deliver a great podcast.
