Ep. 14: Market Yourself
Ask five people to define marketing and you will get five different answers. Shelby and Josh discuss their take on marketing in today’s social-driven world. They chat with “unmarketing” experts Scott Stratten and Alison Kramer of the UnPodcast about why it’s important to know your audience and take marketing to a personal level. They’ll also read listeners’ best tips and tools for marketing their brand.
- How do you present yourself on social media? Josh and Shelby give an inside look at their digital lives.
- If you’re trying to establish yourself as a brand or expert, Shelby says your social presence should be a healthy balance between helpful content, tempered self-promotion and authenticity.
- UnPodcast co-host Alison Kramer says it’s vital to broadly understand the ever-innovative forms of social media marketing. You should be familiar with the new social media platforms, but ultimately specialize and focus on your strengths.
- Regarding email marketing, it’s time to “respect the inbox,” the duo says. They’ve already expressed interest in your content; don’t kill the relationship by bombarding your subscribers.

“Do what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life—it’s so true. I haven’t worked in 14 years.”
