Discussions from IMPACT Elite

Getting Buy-In for Video

Lorena DeLeon de Giron posted: “Hi everyone, yesterday I tried to sell to executives the idea of developing a video to address customers questions (similar to what Marcus advised on the Google podcast). They were not excited about developing another Q&A video. The feedback received was to go back and re-evaluate what problem I was solving for. What is the dictating opportunity here.” Check out her post.

This prompted Marcus Sheridan to record a response. Marcus’s advise was to think like a salesperson - go to your sales manager or team and say “what percent of the questions you get every time you have a sales call are the same?” He means, you guessed it, 80% videos!

When Someone is Stealing Your Content

Lauren Little posted: “Question for the group. We've just realized one of our local competitors is "borrowing" a lot of our content. They're not copying it verbatim, but they're taking the articles we write and reworking slightly to publish on their own site. Often coming out with an article on the same topic as us about a month after we post ours.”

Nick suggested that you read this whole discussion but also that one of the key takeaways is to go big or go home with your content! Use it to build a moat of trust and loyalty around your company. 

The Scariest Halloween Marketing Campaigns

I thought it was super interesting how many "scary" marketing campaigns I've seen recently that were banned. Specifically, this one from Spotify recently caught my eye.

Let us know in Elite some of the best (and worst) of what you saw this Halloween!

Inbound in Action

This is where we talk about what we’re doing and what we’ve learned lately right here in the trenches. 

LinkedIn Making a Comeback?

LinkedIn is apparently updating their algorithm and I'm so excited about it! They said "what was missing was how likely the creator or poster of that content was to "appreciate" the engagement." which I think is SUCH a great point! Tl;dr people with smaller to mid-sized audiences will get more weight on the first 10 engagements on their posts. LinkedIn understands that a like from someone means more to someone with a smaller following than a large one, thus it should matter more and be given more value. Check out the full update.

We would love your comments. What did you think of the show? Let us know in Elite. Make sure you never miss a show or update by subscribing at
