808 Podcast and How It Can Help You – BOB CLARK
I’ve done several interviews on various podcast over the last few years. I’ve been on some good ones and thoroughly enjoyed the conversations. I’ve also been on some where I was watching the clock and waiting for it to end! I’ve interviewed several hundred people over the last couple of years as well.
But I was on a podcast a few weeks ago that was so enjoyable, far far exceeding what I had anticipated. I just had to reciprocate and ask BOB CLARK to be on my podcast. I laughed and had a great time on his podcast, the “808 Podcast.” Why “808” you ask? Because it “looks like BOB!
Anyway, my guest today IS “THE BOB CLARK” of the 808 podcast – where everything revolves around BOB (which I could truly relate to)!
Bob Clark is an Internet marketing professional with extensive experience in Social Media Marketing (SMM) and Search Engine Optimization (SEO) in both the political and private sectors. In 2008, Bob got his start in politics running petition crews for various causes. After the 2008 election season, Bob started training politicians on the use of Social Media Marketing and SEO. During this time, he also worked with various local businesses of all sizes, aiding them with marketing their brands via Social Media Marketing and SEO.
Now, help me welcome to the program, THE BOB CLARK!
Bob – thank you for coming on MY program today!
Now, I always start with this question first. Other than that brief bio I just read, tell us in your own words, “Who is Bob Clark?”
Before we get into podcasting as a business, I want to talk for just a minute about you and helping politicians. Was that something you desired to become active in or did they seek out your help?
Were any of these nationally known politicians or state and local politicians?
You were also involved in getting several ballot initiatives in front of the voters, correct?
Ok, let’s shift gears a little bit…
How did you get started in podcasting and why?
I know, when we talked, the “808” podcast was not your first podcast. Why did you start the “808” podcast?
Is your podcast part of that coaching program?
Tell us how you are able to monetize your podcast?
When we talked before, you said that being a “strong willed business owner and a Christian is tough.” I know what you are talking about and agree…But can you explain what you mean to our listeners?
I know that one of the things we both agree is agitating concerns businesses who try to “market” their business through Christian meme’s and postings. I’m guessing it is an effort to “market” their Christianity and get customers to a non-Christian related business. What are your thoughts on that marketing tactic?
I agree. I have no problem sharing my Faith, but as Marlon Brando said in the “God Father” – “Business is business.”
In my opinion, IF you have a Christian Business – it’s proper to use Christian meme’s, etc. to market that business. That would be the reason people would be searching you out. But if your business is, I don’t know, selling car tires or something – I’m more interested in the type, quality and price of the tires I’m getting. Your Faith, in my mind, does not really matter at that point. IF I find out that the price, quality and type of tires meet my needs and then we establish a relationship and I find out about your Faith, I am more likely to be a returning customer. But I’m not looking for a tire dealer based upon Faith. Does that make sense? Is that kind of where you are at on this?
