Summer in November

Second we’re live in Virginia on a perfect summer like morning.

Living Life On The Road

So it’s time for an easy talker in a continuing report on living life on the road.

Best. Idea. Ever.

Certainly I am still sure getting rid of everything I owned and hitting the road is still the best idea I’ve ever had. For me!

Pure Bliss

Above all those moments considering my new found freedom are pure bliss.

And Some Pain

On the other hand making silly mistakes can end in a lot of pain.

What’s The Mission On The Road

These days I find myself thinking more deeply about the actual reason for my decision to hit the road.

Experienced Traveler

Most importantly I felt called in some way to do this. Certainly I’ve traveled a lot in the last few years. Sometimes for months at a time.

Life On The Road

So I am no stranger to life on the road.

Home?

On the other hand I always ‘had’ to come ‘home’.

Home Is Here. Now.

Now home is where I happen to be on any given day.

Freedom?

Many people i talk to yearn for that kind of freedom.

Reason For the Adventure

However for me, there has to be a reason for this adventure. Find out why I say this in Nomad-Life-Pleasure-Pain-Bob Davis Podcast 966.

What’s The Mission?

To sum up, this is an adventure. This is a mission. I’m just not quite sure what it is right now.

Finding It Together

In conclusion I guess I’d say we’ll find it together. In a sense that’s what these podcasts are all about…and that’s my pleasure!

Not to mention enjoying an endless summer this winter.

Everyone Interested In Podcasting Now

Firstly everyone seems to be interested in podcasting these days. In addition Podcasts great for advertising. Learn why in Madmen-Talk-About-Podcast-Advertising-Bob Davis Podcast 943.

Experienced Ad Man and Podcaster Talk

Secondly who better to talk about podcast advertising than an experienced ad man?

Sharp Creative In Minneapolis

Most importantly Ben Harris, owner of Sharp Creative in Minneapolis has great strategic ideas about growing a business.

The Bob Davis Podcasts

As a result the idea of getting a veteran podcast guy and veteran advertising guy together to talk is a good one.

Pet Peeves as Opportunities

When it comes to selling business owners on the value of advertising in podcasts I do have some pet peeves.

Return On Investment

For instance the concept of ‘Return On Investment’. In other words, a dollar in revenue or more for every dollar spent in advertising.

How Podcasts Actually Work

Truth is podcast advertising works more like a fertilizer than an artillery strike.

Podcasts And Strategic Branding

Even more Ben Harris says businesses might think about starting with a strategic branding approach to focus their ad efforts.

Subtle and Effective

Certainly podcasts are more subtle than other forms of advertising. More personal and intimate than other mediums.

Flexible and Creative

Above all podcasting is highly flexible. In other words, we have the same time and space boundaries as other mediums.

Branding Process and Strategy

These days you don’t often hear someone like Ben Harris talk about the branding process and strategy.

Strike While The Iron Is Hot!

Finally this is a great time for businesses to analyze and sharpen their advertising strategies and methods.

More Podcasts Bigger Audiences More Feeds

In conclusion the medium of podcasting is growing, feeds are up and more people are listening. In short one of the benefits of the pandemic is the growth of podcasting as a business communications tool and ad medium.

Join The Conversation

Join two madmen as we talk podcast advertising, strategy and more.

The-Politics-Of-Panic-Bob Davis Podcast 910

Pandemic Panic

Time to talk about Panic. Especially the politics of panic. What does the word ‘panic’ mean? All that and more in The-Politics-Of-Panic-Bob Davis Podcast 910.

Fourth Podcast About Coronavirus

First of all this is the fourth in a series of podcasts on Coronavirus.

If It Bleeds…It Leads

I certainly did not intend to do a series on Coronavirus. However it’s rise to an official pandemic is most noteworthy.

Ladies and Gentlemen, if it bleeds it leads.

Four Podcasts Anticipating Current Events

Even more these podcasts have anticipated effects in the markets.

Right now the questions are, how bad will it get and what will the political effects be.

Enter the word ‘Panic’

If you are interested in real statistics regarding the spread of Covid-19 you believe ‘fake’ news.

Try to prepare by doing something you think might help your family? Panic.

Moreover media covering the story are automatically guilty of panic if they don’t parrot the party line, which apparently is this is not very serious.

In addition statements made from the White House in an attempt to damp down concern are often contradicted almost immediately.

Blame Everyone

Blame the media. Or China. Say the democrats are making a big deal out of this.

Blame the president for his off the cuff style and colorful language.

He blames CNN and the previous president.

Let’s not forget social media because it brings out the worst human instincts at times like these.

Learn more in The-Politics-Of-Panic-Bob Davis Podcast 910.

This Ain’t No Party

Finally one wonders whether we are truly panicking.

This Ain’t No Disco

Selling stock because the market is going down isn’t necessarily panic.

This Ain’t No Time For Fooling Around

Buying toilet paper may seem silly but it hardly qualifies as panic.

Measured And Careful Response

In conclusion Covid-19 is now a worldwide pandemic. That is officially a serious problem.

It’s reasonable to suggest a serious problem requires a measured and careful response that doesn’t minimize, spin, or denigrate people who are concerned about it.

Economic and Political Effects Snowballing

A measured and careful response is even more important as economic effects snowball and markets are effected.

I don’t think people trust the government anymore.

Can you blame them?

Oh right…you can!
