Time-Stamped Show Notes:

  • [00:27] Today’s Topic: 4 Fundamental Things You Need to Master in Marketing
  • [00:34] Element #1: Consistency when it comes to running tests.
  • [01:10] Neil finds that what works in marketing today, won’t necessarily work tomorrow. By running tests, you figure out what is working and what is not.
  • [01:35] For instance, Neil decided to use Google Authentication as a method of signing up for his email list, which produced better results than asking for names and addresses.
  • [02:05] Element #2: Having a growth mindset. Looking at your peers, assessing new options, and not being closed-off.
  • [02:46] Element #3: Be data driven. Numbers are all that matter!
  • [03:21] When Neil spoke with his team recently, they listed changes they wanted to make, but the changes weren’t based on data.
  • [04:00] Element #4: Think about the process.
  • [04:05] Google the “Toyota Production System”, which is the method by which they make their cars.
  • [04:15] Even Eric and Neil have a process for their podcast. When you systamize things, they become easier to achieve.
  • [05:00] That’s it for today!
  • [05:02] Eric and Neil recommend the Problem Solvers podcast, because there is a great episode about the Hello Fresh CEO. To listen go to singlegrain.com/solve.
