Full-Gonzo-Nomad-Bob Davis Podcast 959

Full Gonzo Nomad

First of all there’s Full Gonzo Nomad and then there’s touring the freeways in a six figure RV. Learn more in Full-Gonzo-Nomad-Bob Davis Podcast 959.

Back Roads Forever

Second of all there’s travel always on the back roads. I’ve certainly done my fair share of it. Even more travel in a Twenty year old ambulance with very few comforts of home.

Hit The Road

That is to say I decided to get rid of everything I own and hit the road. Forever.

Few Comforts

Above all that means hitting the road with a camp stove, hammock and a few other ‘comforts’.

Crazy? I’ve Been Tested!

Certainly people think I am crazy. Where do you get your mail? What do you do when you want to sleep in a bed? How can you function without a toilet and a shower?

New Comforts

Well. I have a toilet. I have a Jet Boil. A camp stove. An awesome new sleeping bag from REI. Stuff like that.

First Podcast Of The Rest of The Podcasts

Because this is the first podcast of the rest of the podcasts, the rest of your questions will be answered going forward.

Time To Take Action

Most importantly I made this decision because it is time to take action. Learn why I am doing this in Full-Gonzo-Nomad-Bob Davis Podcast 959.

Meeting The Future Together

Finally I plan to maintain my business networking contacts in Minneapolis and Saint Paul and the Upper Midwest. On the other hand there is so much more on the back roads. We’ll meet the future together.

Leap Into The Unknown

In conclusion this is something I’ve wanted to do for a long time. A huge leap into the unknown.

Feels Wonderful

In the same vein getting rid of everything but essentials and driving away from an empty house feels wonderful.

Might try it sometime!

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.

Midnight-Curfew-WalkandTalk-Bob Davis Podcast 931

Rules For WalkandTalk Podcast

Firstly, rules for the walk and talk podcast are no preparation and no plan. Just walking and talking. Time to take a break from the surreal world we live in. Join me on the walk in Midnight-Curfew-WalkandTalk-Bob Davis Podcast 931.

Throw The Plan Out

Secondly, I did have some things I thought I would talk about in this podcast. As soon as I got outside I threw all of that out.

Switch On Summer

Above all, we’re having a warm beginning of June here in the Upper Midwest. We don’t take that lightly.

Back In The Day

On the other hand it’s still hard for me to believe that 75 days ago we were living ‘normal’ lives.

What’s Next?

These days there’s a surreal quality to everything. Consequently we don’t have a sense of where things are headed. How any of this will play out is anyone’s guess.

No Predictions Here

Above all there is my firm commitment not to tell listeners and subscribers what to think or how we should proceed. Everyone is going to have to come to their own conclusions.

Living Through Difficult Times

Certainly I wonder how people felt during times of upheaval in history. Subsequently I am sure few of those people ‘knew’ where ‘things’ were going or how it would turn out.

Sure Hope Something Else Doesn’t Happen!

For example someone remarked to me in a networking session this week, “I sure hope something else doesn’t happen!”.

Likewise I am sure.

Midnight Walk In The Moonlight Cures Just About Anything

Finally my antidote for angst about the future and the crisis we’re all living through is a midnight walk in the moonlight. Even during a curfew it works wonders every time.

Walk…And Talk

In short, join me while I take a walk and talk about some new audio equipment, the surreal times we’re living through and more in Midnight-Curfew-WalkandTalk-Bob Davis Podcast 931.
