HOW TO HOST A RADIO SHOW

Hosting your own radio show is one of the best ways to brand yourself as an expert in your field, establish yourself as a thought leader, educate and entertain people and promote your business. It’s also fun to do. Hosting a radio show is not hard to do. There are thousands of talk radio stations in hundreds of cities throughout the country that need to fill 168 hours of programming each every week. That provides a lot of opportunities. You could host a show in your local station’s studio or do it remotely over the phone with any local or national station. Most stations will help you. There are also plenty of resources to help. It’s relatively low cost, free or you could get paid to do it. Here’s how it’s done.

PRINT’S NOT DEAD!

The death of print has been greatly exaggerated. Print is still very much alive. Newspapers, magazines and books are still sold and read. In spite of traditional communication going digital, print is far from done. Print advertising is any advertising printed on paper including newspapers, magazines, booklets, flyers, direct mail or any other printed medium. Print advertising dates back to early Egyptian times. Print advertising appeared in newspapers and handbills in 17th century England. Modern print advertising started in 1836 in La Presse, a French newspaper. So what are the benefits and means of print advertising?

RELATIONSHIP MARKETING, BACK TO THE BASICS

Relationship marketing has been around for a long time. Today it’s a lost art, but it doesn’t have to be. It’s usually the simple things we do on an ongoing basis that have big impacts….

Joe Girard is probably the most famous car salesman you’ve never heard of. Girard is in the Guinness book of records for selling 13,000 cars in a 15 year period.  His method was to always build relationships, mostly thru customer service. The relationships were fostered with his business contacts, the mechanic staff at the dealership, you name it. A 2012 Dearborn Press article gave a very key insight into Girard’s methods:

LIFELONG LEARNING

Lifelong learning is defined as all learning activity undertaken throughout life, with the aim of improving knowledge, skills and competences within a personal, civic, social and employment-related perspective. Constant change is the new normal. In order to survive and thrive, organizations and individuals must be able to adjust, and enhance their knowledge and skills to meet evolving needs. This means the most important thing someone can learn is how to learn. Peter Drucker said "We now accept the fact that learning is a lifelong process of keeping abreast of change. And the most pressing task is to teach people how to learn." Learning doesn't stop when we graduate from school. Albert Einstein said "Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school." He also said "Intellectual growth should commence at birth and cease at death." Socrates said "Education is the kindling of a flame, not the filling of a vessel." Mahatma Ghandhi said " Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever." Leonardo da Vinci said "Learning never exhausts the mind." Benjamin Franklin said "Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn." So how do we become a lifelong learner?
