You’re a first-time CEO and you’ve just realized… you don’t know what your role actually is.

That was me when outside capital came in, and I wasn’t sure what I was supposed to do.

In this episode, I’m launching the CEO Series on B2B Growth, where you’ll hear from me, your host John Belizaire, Editor of CEOPLAYBOOK, an online publication full of stories from real CEOs and advice for founders and CEOs of high-growth companies.

What I talked about:

  • My first experience being CEO (won by a founders vote, 4 out of 5)
  • Advice I learned that I wished I’d known back then
  • The importance of falling in love with your customers even if they take their shoes off during a meeting (true story)
  • Joining a community of CEOs

Check out these resources I mentioned during the podcast:

The sales process is broken. Nobody actually enjoys buying anymore—especially not software. And when it comes to most sales processes, the human touch has just disappeared.

They talk about:

  • How being a mini CMO prepared him to wear all the CMO hats
  • Ryan's take on how the sales process is broken (& how to streamline it)

You’ve probably noticed … podcasting isn’t coming. It’s here. Why is podcasting so big? And exactly how does it benefit the B2B space, specifically B2B sellers and marketers?

Great questions. Lindsay Tjepkema has great answers.

She has years of experience in marketing and branding with HUMANeX Ventures, Maestro, Emarsys, and her own company, Blueprint Marketing (just to name a few). She also hosted her own podcast at Emarsys called Marketer + Machine podcast. While she was hosting, it dawned on her — podcasting is a huge opportunity for marketers. But it can be challenging.

So she set out and founded her own B2B podcasting platform called Casted.

Lindsay came on our podcast, B2B Growth, to tell us why podcasting is the future for B2B.

What we talked about:

  • Content machine: First, blog, then, podcast
  • Blog strategy:
    • Post regularly (weekly blog)
    • High-quality content 
    • Grow audience
  • Amplification, more customer intel & more ideation
    • Podcasting amplifies your content machine 
    • Ideation & collaboration
    • Customer intel 
  • Podcasting is insanely fun
  • The Golden Age of radio is back (sort of)
  • Podcasting is meaningful to your guests
  • Tip: Don’t only go for the “GaryVees” or the Seth Godins (go for the people on the frontline)
  • Tip: it is a little more work than you may think
  • Tip: think outside the audio box
  • B2B podcasting
