Marketing Podcast with Matthew Pollard.

 

In this episode of the Duct Tape Marketing Podcast, I interview Matthew Pollard. He’s a consultant speaker blogger and serial entrepreneur. He’s currently the founder and CEO of Rapid Growth LLC. He’s also the author of a book we’re going to talk about today, called: The Introvert’s Edge to Networking: Work the room. Leverage social media. Develop powerful connections.

Questions I ask Matthew Pollard:

  • How does the climate of today impact networking?
  • Do you think the packing people in a room and the old school networking that everybody professed to hate is dead?
  • So why do introverts need a book on networking? Do they struggle in a special way?
  • So if two individuals distinctly different individuals, one, an introvert, and one, an extrovert, showed up for coaching from you, would you have different approaches for them?
  • You believe that there is a very systematic approach that extrovert or introvert could take – can you unpack what the components of that are?
  • Are there innate strengths that introverts actually have that we could share?
  • I suspect you also encounter a lot of people that who ask: Am I an introvert? Am I an extrovert? Is there a resource or is there a test somebody could take that that definitively tells them, or is that a dangerous path to try to find your label?

Questions I ask John Warrillow:

  • Can you get more for your business than what the market suggests — and how?
  • Is there a perfect time to sell your business? Do people wait too long?
  • As a buyer, did you find that people are very proactive in going out and finding buyers rather than just putting a for sale sign in the yard?

  • What’s a success story that somebody you interviewed or featured in the book that you think really did it right?
