Let's drop some real tea on innovation, AI, and the state of marketing, old school iDigress style — fast-talking, high-energy, value gems dropping every other second. Let's go on the record and break down the good, the bad, and the reality of all of these things!Is the “perception of innovation” being personified as a “standard move” more than the actual act of innovation itself?Are brands really being innovative or merely copycats adding bedazzles on top to look different?What does embracing AI vs integrating AI within your business, offering, and operations actually look like?How do we navigate all of this in the creator economy, the rise of AI, the shift from third to first-party data, and so much more?This episode is jam-packed with answers, studies, observations, and expanded considerations of intentional thoughts to explore on all of this and more.  Beyond The Episode Gems:Download HubSpot's State Of Marketing Report for FreeDiscover All Podcasts On The HubSpot Podcast NetworkGet Discount Off Riverside & Try For Free #####Support The Podcast & Connect With Troy: • Rate & Review iDigress: iDigress.fm/Reviews•  Follow Troy's LinkedIn @FindTroy• Get Strategy Solutions & Services: GrowWithTroy.com•  Buy Troy's Book, Strategize Up: StrategizeUpBook.com•  Follow Troy's Instagram @FindTroy
Perception vs. perspective has either ended businesses before they got off the ground or saved businesses with a phenomenal pivot. Many entrepreneurs, startups, business leaders, marketers, and go-to-market specialists need to acknowledge that their perception of themselves, value, product, service, or interpretation of the marketplace can be flawed, narrow-minded, or completely inaccurate. To combat this, you must embrace gaining a better perspective by exploring other possibilities of the source of truth beyond what you see, know, can identify, or believe at times.The more value threads you create in the minds and literal usability of the consumer, the stronger the bonds, and the higher the probability of becoming a buyer, an advocate, a connection conductor, and part of an engaging community of support, referrals, and brand resonance. The question is, how do you create and maintain value threads effectively? Beyond The Episode Gems:Discover All Podcasts On The HubSpot Podcast NetworkGet The New Book "Influencer Marketing"Get Discount Off Riverside & Try For Free  #####Support The Podcast & Connect With Troy: • Rate & Review iDigress: iDigress.fm/Reviews•  Follow Troy's LinkedIn @FindTroy• Get Strategy Solutions & Services: FindTroy.com•  Buy Troy's Book, Strategize Up: StrategizeUpBook.com•  Follow Troy's Instagram @FindTroy
Entrepreneurship is hard. Everyone says that. But why? Whether you're an entrepreneur, creator, speaker, or author, these levels and the tiers of achievement and success break most people! Seventy-five percent of those that try, don't make the cut. Just like in basketball, the odds are so small to make pro, why even try? Yet those who do make it knew the odds and pursued it anyway. And in the same way, we're all digital athletes trying to be great at something within our domain. Why? How? Can we actually do it? Can we become the Steph Curry, the Caitlin Clark, the LeBron James in the thing we do? Let's talk about it! Beyond The Episode Gems:Subscribe To My New Podcast Unfiltered GrowthLearn About My New Venture: Season Three Media | Events | Marketing | Sales | DEIBAGet Discount Off Riverside & Try For Free Discover All Podcasts On The HubSpot Podcast Network#####Support The Podcast & Connect With Troy: • Rate & Review iDigress: iDigress.fm/Reviews•  Follow Troy's LinkedIn @FindTroy• Get Strategy Solutions & Services: FindTroy.com•  Buy Troy's Book, Strategize Up: StrategizeUpBook.com•  Follow Troy's Instagram @FindTroy

It's no secret that most people are terrible at selling.They struggle with rejection. They lack confidence. They fumble with clear communication.They don't know how to build the right systems, create the right messaging, and convey the right psychological cues to win.They're making a lot of noise, doing a lot of tasks, and staying very busy, but they aren't making any money to sustain themselves. They're doing a ton of marketing based on "best practices," but their sales pipeline is empty, and their revenue is nonexistent. Is this you? Is this your sales team? Is your business struggling to get the bag in any or all of these areas?This episode will provide you with an in-depth masterclass on the art and science of selling, referencing great insights from past episodes of the iDigress Podcast catalog and my book Strategize Up.Beyond The Episode Gems:Subscribe To My New Podcast Unfiltered GrowthLearn About My New Venture: Season Three Media | Events | Marketing | Sales | DEIBADiscover All Podcasts On The HubSpot Podcast Network#####Support The Podcast & Connect With Troy: • Rate & Review iDigress: iDigress.fm/Reviews•  Follow Troy's LinkedIn @FindTroy• Get Strategy Solutions & Services: FindTroy.com•  Buy Troy's Book, Strategize Up: StrategizeUpBook.com•  Follow Troy's Instagram @FindTroy

Your conversation has gone according to plan. They absolutely loved your presentation, adored your team, aligned with your mission, and resonated with your purpose. They view you as an expert in your field and feel confident in what you can do. But then it all falls apart in a hurry the moment you give the price. Sounds familiar?Well, you aren't alone. 65% of salespeople state that price is the hardest part to navigate when closing.The trick here is to associate the investment equivalent of the price point to an experience worth paying for that gets results.Consumers know the value of the sales experience and the connection that can be made with a partner company. About 84% of business buyers say that experience is just as important as the product or service being sold, with around 67% willing to pay more for a great experience. These numbers underscore the importance of a positive sales process.This episode will help you understand the four components of a great pricing infrastructure that will help you go from start to finish, hopefully with a signed contract at the end.Beyond The Episode Gems:Learn About My New Business Venture: S3M - Where We're Driving Inclusive Marketing & DEIB Integrations ForwardDiscover All of the Podcats on the HubSpot Podcast NetworkGet Free HubSpot Marketing Tools To Help You Grow Your Business Grow Your Business Faster Using HubSpot's CRM PlatformBook A Time To Hire Me To Help You Scale Your Business#####Support The Podcast & Connect With Troy: • Rate & Review iDigress: iDigress.fm/Reviews•  Follow Troy's LinkedIn @FindTroy• Get Strategy Solutions & Services: FindTroy.com•  Buy Troy's Book, Strategize Up: StrategizeUpBook.com•  Follow Troy's Instagram @FindTroy
Your marketing sucks... respectfully, maybe? But let's talk about the reasons it may be failing you and what you can do about it.Think of the "best practices" in marketing and business that you hold in high regard as foundational pieces to how you do marketing and business in the first place. When was the last time you actually evaluated them? Is that information relevant to where you are now and driving results home for you? What about the people, business, and resources you learn from and base many of your implementations, strategies, martech stack, and timelines on when both evaluating the market and your business? When was the last time you assessed the relevancy of those sources in today's modern era of marketing and business operations?Think of this episode as a mental questionnaire and checklist to reevaluate the core sources that influence how you look and do marketing. Hopefully, it sparks curiosity to explore and optimize it for better results and outcomes. Beyond The Episode Gems:Learn About My New Business Venture: S3M - Where We're Driving Inclusive Marketing & DEIB Integrations ForwardDiscover All of the Podcats on the HubSpot Podcast NetworkGet Free HubSpot Marketing Tools To Help You Grow Your Business Grow Your Business Faster Using HubSpot's CRM PlatformBook A Time To Hire Me To Help You Scale Your Business#####Support The Podcast & Connect With Troy: • Rate & Review iDigress: iDigress.fm/Reviews•  Follow Troy's LinkedIn @FindTroy• Get Strategy Solutions & Services: FindTroy.com•  Buy Troy's Book, Strategize Up: StrategizeUpBook.com•  Follow Troy's Instagram @FindTroy

Where do entrepreneurs go to be reborn? After a challenging year. After losing clients. After navigating a demanding marketplace or having to pivot. Everyone talks about coming out on the other side, but what do you do when you find yourself in the sunken place as an entrepreneur or business leader?Are you navigating losing a substantial amount of clients? Is your business not growing like you hoped it would after taking a big leap of faith and making a huge investment of time, money, and energy? Maybe you're navigating unemployment? Maybe personal struggles, mental anguish, burnout, or a life-altering situation has changed everything, and you're trying to establish a new foundation to build upon again.Well, if any of this feels relatable, this episode is for you. Let's navigate how to proceed together!Beyond The Episode Gems:Discover All of the Podcats on the HubSpot Podcast NetworkGet Free HubSpot Marketing Tools To Help You Grow Your Business Grow Your Business Faster Using HubSpot's CRM Platform#####Support The Podcast & Connect With Troy: • Rate & Review iDigress: iDigress.fm/Reviews•  Follow Troy's LinkedIn @FindTroy• Get Strategy Solutions & Services: FindTroy.com•  Buy Troy's Book, Strategize Up: StrategizeUpBook.com•  Follow Troy's Instagram @FindTroy 
Why do many business leaders expect other people to just "understand" their value in the marketplace?You created an LLC. You bought a domain. You built a website. You posted on LinkedIn, Instagram, and TikTok.And you're just expecting folk to come running to you after you announced you exist as a business or provide a new service?I'm sorry to bring you back to reality, but that's a dream that typically won't come to pass out of the gate.Profitable businesses become profitable businesses from great leaders who can provide a clear understanding to others about the value of the business, the impact of the service, the why behind your existence, and where you can take others.Whether you're a solopreneur, a co-founder, an executive leader, a director, a manager, or somewhere in between, a business doesn't grow, survive, thrive, scale, and expand without high-quality leadership across the board to drive revenue, leverage effective marketing, produce concrete sales tactics, and cultivate great company culture.The question becomes, are you that leader? Can you be that leader? How do you be that leader? And what does that look like?This episode will expand on questions you must answer to know what type of leader you are and where you fit into your business. We will also explore the honest truth behind the key metrics to pursue to scale your business and the myths we debunk behind what many leaders need to stop focusing on because it's a waste of time, money, and resources.This episode is full of heart, energy, and a barrage of reality checks served with a side of truth. iDigress Exclusive: This is the first iDigress episode with a video recording counterpart on YouTube.

Many businesses let the fear of hearing "no" stop them from being aggressive in sales. They shouldn't. It's not about hearing "no" occasionally in the sales cycle when it's more about do you know whether or not the market is saying "no" to your offerings as a business? Is there demand and need? Do they understand? This is the part where many businesses create a false perception of their business value and demand in the market. In many ways, more businesses need to think like lawyers and position their efforts to maintain a high winning percentage.You must understand the facts and seek the truth in order to operate, market, and sell accordingly.Beyond The Episode Gems:Discover All of the Podcats on the HubSpot Podcast NetworkGet Your Tickets for INBOUNDListen to Ep 85 of the Augmentors Podcast featuring me: Strategy Hacking with Troy SandidgeChris Orlob, CEO at PClub.io 3 Sales Lessons LinkedIn PostRead My Article on Social Media Pulse: AI-Powered Productivity Hacks for MarketersRead My Article on HubSpot's Marketing Blog : 3 Reasons So Many Business Strategies Fail (And How To Succeed)Get Free HubSpot Marketing Tools To Help You Grow Your Business Get Two Free Months of Agorapulse on me: Social.Agorapulse.com/FindTroyGrow Your Business Faster Using HubSpot's CRM Platform#####Support The Podcast & Connect With Troy: • Rate & Review iDigress: iDigress.fm/Reviews• Get Strategy Solutions & Services: FindTroy.com•  Buy Troy's Book, Strategize Up: StrategizeUpBook.com•  Need a Growth-Focused Brand Consultancy?

The numbers are in and 90% of all business ideas will fail miserably. But don't fret, most of the ideas fail because many struggle with the transfer of the idea into a tangible product or service that solves a big enough problem to be in constant demand.The goal is to take your idea and lay out the vision to then convert that into an actionable plan with a proof of concept that becomes an undeniable product, service, or deliverable that can generate consistent revenue and scale.Let's discuss how to be part of the 10% that actually makes it work!Beyond The Episode Gems:Grow Your Business Faster Using HubSpot's CRM PlatformBuy My Book Strategize Up to Maximize the Growth & Profitability of Your BusinessGet Free HubSpot Marketing Tools To Help You Grow Your Business Discover All of the Podcats on the HubSpot Podcast NetworkGet Two Free Months of Agorapulse on me: Social.Agorapulse.com/FindTroyRead My Article on HubSpot's Marketing Blog : 3 Reasons So Many Business Strategies Fail (And How To Succeed)Read My Article on Social Media Pulse: AI-Powered Productivity Hacks For A Social Media Manager#####Support The Podcast & Connect With Troy: • Rate & Review iDigress: iDigress.fm/Reviews• Get Strategy Solutions & Services: FindTroy.com•  Buy Troy's Book, Strategize Up: StrategizeUpBook.com•  Follow Troy on Twitter: Twitter.com/FindTroy
