Hands up who’s down with the kids and uses Snapchat? Ok, keep your hand up if you’ve ever used Snapchat for your business? No, us neither…
Nowadays, simply selling to your audience on social media is boring and won’t garner the kind of engagement that you want and need to succeed. You need to entertain your audience in order to get them engaged enough to care about you and your message. Enter Snapchat...
In this episode, we welcome Miri Qylafi from Snapchat marketing agency, Fanbytes. Miri is a bonafide Snapchat guru, having run hundreds of really cool campaigns for huge global brands, as well as smaller more niche businesses.
Snapchat offers a platform for a new style of playful engagement that the folks at Fanbytes have fittingly dubbed ADVERTAINMENT. Snapchat is an entirely different beast to the other popular Social Media platforms and to really succeed there, you can’t use the same tactics that you have used on Facebook and Instagram. It’s a platform where people go to have fun, play, not take their online presence too seriously, and be themselves.
The personal, raw, authentic feel of Snapchat undoubtedly requires different strategies to engage with your audience, but it also offers a unique opportunity to capture your customers' attention and generate authentic and meaningful engagements.
So, whether you’re looking to add Snapchap into your marketing strategy, or if you’re simply looking for ways to be more playful with your existing marketing campaign, this podcast will give you some fantastic tips and ideas to not only engage with Generation Z but win them over completely!

This week on the Exposure Ninja Digital Marketing Podcast we're super excited to welcome the founder of the journalist enquiry service, Help a Reporter Out (HARO), and current CEO of ShankMinds and The Geek Factory Inc., Peter Shankman.
Peter started his career in PR and after building up a considerable contact list (and a reputation in the industry for being the go-to guy for a connection) he launched HARO in 2008. The platform single-handedly revolutionised the way journalists and sources found each other online, paving the way for other outreach platforms and software that so many of us use and rely on today - Gorkana and Response Source to name but a few.
More recently Peter has focused some of his never-ending energy on the importance of customer service; during this episode he offers some stellar advice about how to cut through the noise and really listen and engage with your audience, enabling you to provide the best possible experience for your customers.
We also delve into Peter’s ADHD, which he claims is the source of his unusually high energy levels and extreme productivity. We discuss some of the concepts from his new book, Faster Than Normal, which he hopes will provide insight and helpful hacks for anyone who wants to harness a ‘faster than normal’ brain to be less distracted and more productive!

Are you one of those business owners feeling super frustrated with Social Media and thinking it’s a complete waste of time?
For many businesses, their choice of marketing activity is about what makes them the most money, fast, with Social Media often perceived as a ‘softer’ or ‘longer term’ strategy than something like PPC. But if used correctly, Social Media can be a fantastic platform to engage with your target audience and catapult your sales into the stratosphere!
This week on the Exposure Ninja Digital Marketing Podcast, Tim meets Social Media Guru, Jessica Gioglio who is best known for transforming Dunkin’ Donuts’ Social Media from rocky beginnings to one of the most often-cited examples of a brand doing social right. In this episode, Jessica shares how businesses of any size can use social media more effectively, particularly through storytelling.
With a broad background working with big companies like Dunkin’ and Tripadvisor to smaller, more niche SMEs, Jessica is well placed to give us the lowdown on how to be successful on social, with some fantastic nuggets of wisdom and advice about what you can do right now to skyrocket your social engagement with the people that matter, your customers!

Subscription boxes are a very popular marketing model at the moment. There’s likely a subscription box for absolutely anything you can think of. Dog food? Beauty products? Dive bar shirts? Chakra-aligning hippie paraphernalia? Yep, there’s a subscription box for all of that.
This week on the Exposure Ninja Digital Marketing Podcast, Tim meets with Michael Salguero, CEO and Founder of ButcherBox. Mike had one of those rare niche ideas that did not have a subscription box already, and ButcherBox was created. As its name suggests, ButcherBox is a curated selection of monthly mail-delivery grass-fed meat boxes. Borne out of Mike’s own experience buying and sharing whole grass-fed cows with friends and discovering the health advantages of naturally-raised meat, he also discovered that only 1% of the total beef consumed in the United States was 100% grass-fed.
Following that was an immensely successful Kickstarter that raised 75K within three days, and 215K by the end of their campaign (the initial target was 25K). Along the way, a famous paleo author tweeted about the campaign, which in turn brought even more backers and subscribers. From there, ButcherBox leveraged the power of influencer marketing in ways that may surprise you!
Two years on, ButcherBox can pride themselves of having such wide brand recognition as being first in the grass-fed category in Google searches, and even being bigger than the category itself.

Direct-response television marketing, also known as infomercials, are extremely popular in the US. This is a medium where the audience has a remote control in one hand, ready to click away at the first sign of being bored. Anyone who makes money in this environment where it cost tens of thousands of dollars to just run a test is worth listening to.
On this episode of the Exposure Ninja Digital Marketing Podcast, Tim talks with Michael Alden, one of America’s most successful and recognised infomercial hosts. Michael has overseen hundreds of infomercials in a range of markets and has a wonderful insight on the elements of the most successful infomercial campaigns. Infomercials are often selling something that the audience didn’t know they wanted or needed — and Michael is a master at convincing them of both.
Did you know that Barack Obama ran three one-hour infomercials on him, his campaign and his vision, with a donation call to action at the end? Michael believes that this contributed to getting him elected, and this goes to show the power of infomercials! Brand building, testimonials and social proof are all part of the mix, but there is so much more you can learn in this week’s episode.
Make sure you don’t change the channel on this one to learn the powerful psychology behind direct response marketing and get tangible examples on how you too can leverage Michael’s advice to build your own brand, while generating more sales.
