Wrapping up the gap season, I’ve invited Diane Kinney to host her very own Q&A on the show.
I met Diane a few years ago, after launching my now failed Matt Report Pro membership. We chatted at WordCamp Miami, and she shared some of her own opinions on how I could (have) made the membership a success. Looks like I should have taken her advice. Diane is proficient in project management, branding, and customer onboarding. It’s an honor to have her presence on the show today.
Now, we all have a chance to take the advice she shares today.
This freelancer has designed a business where customers come to her, and pipeline is never a concern. Megan Gray, founder of House of Grays, teaches us the secret to her freelancing success.
A top-to-bottom discussion with Chris Lema about pricing products, servicing customers, and persevering through the business world.
Brad Williams joins us to talk about Pluginize a new premium product offering from his company, WebDevStudios. We’ll learn how he grew his company to service brands like Microsoft and Discovery, while uncovering the new challenges ahead for the product space.
When I wrote the blog post about WordPress *not* being easy for small business owners, Kronda reached out and said we should connect. I thought her material would be perfect for the show, and boy was I right. Kronda takes us down the path of servicing small business website needs and what it really takes to do it right.
Have you heard that phrase used before? I certainly didn’t until I met today’s guest, Jason Blumer. Jason runs a virtual accounting practice specifically designed for creative agencies and development firms. I love this business idea because it focuses on a specific vertical, with a specific customer type, translating to a better level of service — something we can all learn from.
He wraps it all together nicely by producing a podcast called, The Businessology Show. A podcast I got hooked on quite some time ago. He speaks to his potential customer and provides value at the same time, it’s genius. He offers a wide-range of guests that have boutique agencies (like me), all the way to larger 40+ person shops, each producing their own unique product or service. I have no issues if you add his show right next to mine on your playlist!
We cover a TON in this (almost) hour-long podcast. From team building to the client sales process and everything in between. This has become one of my favorite conversations on the show, and I hope you enjoy it too!
