Ever wondered what craft beer, travel and automations have in common?
The answer is moi!
Over the last 3 months, Corey and I have been on a much needed adventure working and travelling through Turkiye and Greece. We packed 1 suitcase, including our laptops and quickly decided on our destination. Within 3 days, we were on the plane to Izmir, Turkiye.
During our trip, Corey rediscovered his passion for craft beer. We got talking to a few large craft breweries and bars located in Izmir and Bodrum in Turkiye; and also in Crete and Naxos Islands in Greece.
In this episode, I am sharing our travel experience and what we’ve learnt from speaking to some of these business owners.
Every time I travel, I’m reminded how technology helps us stay connected around the world and how quickly countries around the world are adopting it. AI seems to be on top of everyone’s mind!
Simon says it’s much easier to pick up a phone and record yourself to talk to millions followers, but to try and say the same thing to a friend in person is entirely a different thing. It’s harder to talk to one person than to a million people.
Simon’s view is that AI cannot replace human connection. Our travel has proved that point a thousand times over!
So for the next Season, will be covering how to structure your marketing automation strategy and how to create a marketing automation strategy for your business. This can be applied in any business. You could be running an ecommerce business or a consultancy; even if you decide to run a new business altogether, the skills you will learn will be applicable in any business.
It’s important to put a marketing automation strategy in place first before you sign up to a new tool or ask your friends what they think you should do – too many opinions can cause confusion and you’ll quickly become overwhelmed.
