Business-Risks-Preconceived Notions-Bob Davis Podcast 827

We Are Our Own Worst Enemy

We are often our own worst enemy. This is an idea especially relevant to business owners. Financial and Business Consultant Todd Rooker and I talk about it in Business-Risks-Preconceived Notions-Bob Davis Podcast 827.

Our Psychology Can Kill Our Business

Moreover these days wherever you turn for information you’re likely to get a prediction based on the past. It all adds up to preconceived notions and cognitive dissonance which can be fatal to a small business.

Perception Can Be A Reality You Don’t Want To Live In

Financial Consultant Extraordinaire Rooker says it comes down to business owners wanting what they want, when they want it. I think it also has to do with this habit of pundits and commentators everywhere trying to compare our time, to the past rather than the present.

Assumption Is The Mother Of All F-Ups

Consequently business owners need guidance. Its very easy to get off the path or the plan. Especially when we might not have had much of a plan to start with. We talk about all this in Business-Risks-Preconceived Notions-Bob Davis Podcast 827.

Rooker Tells It Like It Is

Finally if you’re a business owner you won’t hear business being discussed with this level of clarity and authenticity very often. Rooker has worked with thousands of business owners over the years. When you add life and business experience, he has a lot of wisdom to share.

New World

Topics include the business mindset, cognitive dissonance and how to effects business owners, how different generations think about business overall, and our fast moving new world.

An Extraordinary Time

In conclusion I have certainly said over and over in these podcasts that I think we’re living through an extraordinary time. Never before have we faced the challenges we face. In addition we have never had tools with the power and scope we have these days. It’s a unique combination of factors we’ve never really seen before.

Despite the challenges it is a great time to be in business, as long as we don’t operate from preconceived notions.

Doing Podcast Promoting Your Business-Good Idea?-Bob Davis Podcast 782

These days when you tell people you are a podcaster you always get ‘the question’. How do I do my own podcast to promote my business? Is this a good idea? The answer may surprise you. Learn more in Doing Podcast Promoting Your Business-Good Idea?-Bob Davis Podcast 782.

One Podcast Is As Good As Any Other

Furthermore many believe one podcast is as good as any other. Hence, why not do a podcast promoting your own business? Low and behold companies have popped up to ‘teach businesses’ how to do their own podcast.

I’m The Life Of The Party I Can Do This

Consequently a business owner who is the life of the party believes they can do a podcast too. Throw up a video on social media. This gets the word out for free and work wonders for their business.

Seems like a good idea! Certainly there are small business owners who are stand out communicators. Genuine people who have something serious to communicate about their business. Why shouldn’t a person like this do a podcast?

Small Business Advertising Budgets

In Doing Podcast Promoting Your Business-Good Idea?-Bob Davis Podcast 782 I focus on small businesses. Smaller businesses have tight advertising budgets and are always looking for an edge that doesn’t cost them anything.

Podcasting Is Highly Competitive

First of all with over five hundred thousand podcasts already on the Internet, podcasting is one of the most competitive advertising mediums in history. A medium for businesses to buy time just like they do on other media. Podcasts, especially regionally based podcasts, are competitively priced and effective advertising mediums.

You Can Do A Lot Of Harm To Your Business

Finally it is possible for a business can do great harm to itself if its communications aren’t professionally created. Especially when it comes to strategy. I give several examples in this podcast of what happens when a business owner becomes a communicator, and the business suffers.

Bad Shots and Shaky Video

In conclusion, from the CEO who handles the advertising to the small business person who posts poorly sized shots or shaky video on social media it’s probably a better idea to get professional advice and execution for your advertising effort.
