New Must-Listen Podcasts

This is not a list of podcasts that are being promoted everywhere and you are tired of hearing about. This is a list of podcasts that have me hooked. They are compelling stories with binge-worthy episodes.

Happy Face

Summary: “For Melissa Moore, 1995 was a nightmare. That’s the year the teenager learned her father, Keith Hunter Jesperson, was a serial killer. It’s also the year Melissa Moore’s doubt spiral began: When you look like your father, and you share his intelligence and charisma, how do you know you’re not a psychopath, too? Happy Face is the story of Keith Hunter Jesperson, his brutal crimes, and the cat and mouse game he played with detectives and the media. But it’s also the story of the horrific legacy he gifted his children. Join Melissa Moore as she investigates her father’s crimes, reckons with the past, and wades through her darkest fears as she hunts for a better future.”

Why I Like It: We don’t hear from the family of a serial killer…ever? It’s mind-boggling how Melissa’s father could kill so many women, yet have a wife and kids. She takes us through her childhood, what kind of father her dad was, and how being the daughter of a serial killer changes your life in ways you never thought or asked for.

Broken Harts

Summary: “Markis, Hannah, Devonte, Abigail, Jeremiah, and Sierra Hart—six beautiful black children, ranging in age from 12 to 19—were all adopted by Sarah and Jennifer Hart, both white. On Jen’s Facebook page, it looked as if they were the perfect blended family, even earning the nickname “Hart Tribe” from friends. Then, on March 26, 2018, the family’s GMC Yukon was found belly-up on the rocks below California’s Highway 1. The news of the murder-suicide shocked their friends and made national headlines, leaving many wondering what possibly led to the fatal crash.”

Why I Like It: I had never heard of this story before, however, the story of their seeming murder-suicide isn’t the first time the Hart family was in the news. Jennifer and Sarah seemed like doting, loving mothers and wives. After all, they adopted two sets of siblings out of the foster care system. But as friends and family are interviewed about the couple and their children, it appears to have been an incredibly crafted facade.

Over My Dead Body

Summary: “Dan and Wendi are two good-looking attorneys whose wedding is featured in the New York Times. After two kids, their marriage falls apart. This leads to a bad breakup, an even worse divorce, and a murder case involving a menagerie of high-priced alters and unexpected co-conspirators. This is a story that says as much about love and marriage as it does about justice, revenge, and the lengths some people will go to get what they want.”

Why I Like It: This case is shocking and had twists and turns that I was not expecting. It’s a terrible story of how far some families will go to get what they want – no matter the cost.

The Dropout

Summary: “Money. Romance. Tragedy. Deception. The story of Elizabeth Holmes and Theranos is an unbelievable tale of ambition and fame gone terribly wrong. How did the world’s youngest self-made female billionaire lose it all in the blink of an eye? How did the woman once heralded as “the next Steve Jobs” find herself facing criminal charges — to which she pleaded not guilty — and up to 20 years in jail? How did her technology, meant to revolutionize healthcare, potentially put millions of patients at risk? And how did so many smart people get it so wrong along the way?”

Why I Like It: I had never heard of Theranos and Elizabeth Holmes before this podcast (I’m not one to keep track of new medical devices). Listening to this podcast, episode by episode, I was floored by her level of deception and lack of care for humanity. HBO also recently released their documentary on this story. Definitely adding it to my watchlist.

  • What is your most significant barrier when it comes to creating content consistently for your website?

Is it idea fatigue?

Is it not believing you're a "creative person"? Is it not having the time?

If you're struggling to create consistently or feel like you're wasting too much time trying to come up with ideas of what to post, then my latest blog post is for you.

In it, I share how I started spending less time figuring out my website marketing and more on generating leads and getting more clients.

  • Maybe you’ve recently launched a website, and there was an uptick in traffic the first week or two, but now traffic has fallen, and inquiries are slowing down.

How do you get more eyeballs on your website?

Well, it’s quite simple: keep giving them something to look at.

Creating consistent content for your website not only helps tell Google that your site is up to date and relevant, but it keeps people coming back from more.

But how do you achieve this without losing your mind and your time?

Choose one topic per week. Then write a long-form blog post that goes in-depth on this topic, and use that blog post to create your social media content for the rest of the week.

Start using the one topic per week plans starting spending LESS time coming up with ideas and MORE time responding to inquiries.

  • Why creating consistent content for your website is important for your business.

1.It Helps With SEO

Creating consistent content for your website not only gives people a reason to keep coming back to your business website, but writing posts that are on-topic for your business or services will help you rank higher when people search those keywords in a search engine. This helps your overall SEO efforts.

2. It demonstrates your knowledge and expertise.

Customers need to trust your knowledge and ability and demonstrating that is an important step in that direction.

Do you struggle with creating website or marketing content consistently? What's the biggest barrier?

  • Creating consistent content for your website sounds like a lot more work on your already overloaded plate. Right?

I’m right there with you – even as a web designer myself it can be hard to find the time to sit down and come up with what to post ever week.

That was until I started planning my content differently. I was able to banish idea fatigue, save time, and started seeing more return on my marketing efforts than ever!

Instead of a super long Instagram caption I put it all into one blog post on my site. Tap the link in my bio to get the info and a free 2020 website content planner I put together for ya.

  • How to demonstrate credibility on your website.

After you’ve shown your website visitors that you understand where they’re coming from and the struggles they are facing, it’s time to show them why YOU are the person they should hire to fix their problems.

There are several ways to demonstrate credibility on your website.

1) Showcase previous projects.

On the product page write about the problem your client was facing and how you solved it. Talk about the goals of the project and how they were accomplished.

2) Testimonials.

Having others vouch for your business is the most influential way you can market your business. I’ve always gone to the mechanic my dad stands by. Word mouth testimonials are solid.

3) Talk yourself up.

Throughout your website take each opportunity to talk about how you are uniquely positioned to solve your customer’s problem.

This isn’t bragging, it’s what your customers are LOOKING for - someone who has the experience and know-how to solve their problem.

  • How to express empathy on your website.

First, write down a few of the problems your customers face.

Then write an empathy statement speaking directly to those struggles.

Basically, they need to know that *you GET it*. That you understand and know how to solve this problem.

Your customers and clients are looking to work with someone who understands their problem and knows how to fix it.

Show them empathy and then demonstrate credibility. More on that tomorrow…
