- [11:01] Dan talks about the negative impact of comparing your topic to other books in the market

Top Snippets from Amplify Your Success
Bad podcast pitches  (and how to fix this fast.) Get clear on what is the outcome you want from your podcast guest appearances. Improving SEO? Increasing membership numbers? Increasing your network? Launching a new service? Getting clear on your "why" is very important.
How Clarity Helped My Client Double His Rates How clarity helped my client double his rates (which will double his revenue) in the first 6 weeks of working together. Clarity creates confidence and momentum to amplify your reach and revenue from your offers.
The events that caused Chris to move from podcasting and local events to creating a global podcasting expo. Backstory: What was the catalyst that got Chris into the podcasting event space? He started early, not happy with how TV programming was done, and knowing he could do it better. As you'll hear, it escallated rapidly from here, lol
The simplest way to partner and benefit, even if you don’t have a big list. Partner and Benefit. A simple Freebie swap. Promote each other. Keep it simple. Share swipe copy so you don't have to make anything up from scratch. Easy and low maintenance for both parties.
Who should you intentionally cultivate a relationship with (and yes, your competitors too.) Learn to cultivate opportunities. Discover what is possible when you are being intentional and taking action regularly to cultivate relationships.
The truth about doing things you HAVE to do but don’t love (and how to balance) You need tro do things you don't like, but they will lead you to spend more time in your Superpower. I personally don't like hiring people. It drains me. BUT...if I need to, it means I need to free ME up to spend more time in MY Superpower.
How Writing A Book Is A Lot Like Putting Puzzle Pieces Together Dan Janal shares his skill of taking a ton of puzzle pieces together and bringing it into order. He loves to take a ton of ideas and create a coherent book that makes people want to hire you. Writing a book is a lot like putting puzzle pieces together!
The difference between being your thoughts and noticing your thoughts Once you decide you're not your thoughts, but your thoughts are energy patterns, and tools. What tools do I need to make myself feel better? What tools do I need for this job? To create this webinar? Choose your tools.
The importance of mindset to amplifying your impact via your superpower. One of the most amazing things you can do is the mindset work. Every new level is a new devil, lol. You need to do the mindset work to really own and claim your superpower. What am I believing about myself, and my work? Where am I letting fear make my decisions? Mindset is going to be a key component.

Episode 289: How to Create Pattern Interrupting Content That Converts with Kathryn Thompson If you market your business online, chances are you’ve noticed that traditional content marketing doesn’t work anymore. Perfectly curated social media feeds and well-designed short videos may get lots of likes but they aren’t attracting paying clients. In order to stand out and win the sale, you’ve got to stop blending in and doing what everyone else is doing online. You need pattern interrupting content that moves people out of their routines and into recognizing what they need most – and that is something they might not even recognize yet.

Episode 288: Using Surveys The Right Way to Retain Customers for Life with Matt Champagne You have probably heard how valuable it is to survey your customer base to understand what their real needs are. But if you don’t ask the right questions, you might not get the full value from the survey process. Surveys can not only provide valuable marketing data, when used in the right part of your marketing process, they can actually help you engage your prospects, deepen their desire to hire or buy from you, and even continue to use your offerings year after year. Sounds like a dream come true, right? On Amplify Your Success Podcast episode 288, I talk with Matt Champagne about the most effective ways to use surveys to engage your audience and develop a stronger relationship with your customers.

Episode 287: 7 Big A-ha’s and Insights from Podfest 2022 Podcasting continues to be a rapidly growing platform to establish authority, share a message and attract great clients. Even with 2.8 million active podcasts, monetization continues to be a pervasive challenge for podcast hosts worldwide. In May 2022, I attended and spoke at one of the biggest podcasting events, Podfest Expo, and gained some valuable insights into what’s working (and how to leverage this fast growth.) With over 1,000 people registered, and 50 tracks dedicated to everything from mental health to sex to monetization and podcast growth, you can rest assured that there is an audience for any topic you might be an exert in.

Episode 286: How to Find Kind, Generous Entrepreneurs to Partner Up With and Promote Joint Venture Partnerships have become a popular way to grow your list and make new sales – but sometimes these kinds of relationships get tricky and the playing field can quickly feel out of balance. One business owner is doing all the giving and the other one is benefiting. Or you feel like these “friends” just show up when it is time to promote their newest offering but they are stealthily silent when you make a request. Everyone is different, and when it comes to cross promotions, you might want to evaluate if you are attracting the sharks or the dolphins. Sharks tend to eat and run. =-) Dolphins like to hang out, play and generously support their friends. On Amplify Your Success Podcast episode 286, I’m re-airing another hot conversation on #NextLevelInfluence that Sam Riley and I had about sharks, dolphins and how to vet a potential partner before you say yes.

[13:10] One very off-putting approach to vetting a potential partner (you’ll want to avoid this at all costs!)
[17:04] Sam talks about one factor that makes dolphins so amazing and will keep a partner promoting over and over again.
[19:30] How to create win-win relationships with partners.
[21:32] Sam talks about a really unique and powerful way she supports her partners (that doesn’t even require an email list or posting on social media!) [27:05] Melanie wraps up with a couple of subtle signs that someone is operating in “shark” mode.
