Marketing Podcast with John Arena and Bryan Zarnett

For the last decade, I’ve been extolling the virtues of thinking systematically about marketing.

Today I want to share a conversation I had with two entrepreneurs and their experience with the Duct Tape Marketing System.

My guests for this week’s episode of the Duct Tape Marketing Podcast are John Arena and Bryan Zarnett, entrepreneurs and long-time participants in the Duct Tape Marketing System. I talk to them individually about their entrepreneurial journeys and how implementing a clear marketing plan has helped each of them scale their businesses.

One of the prominent features that the Duct Tape Marketing System offers is the pairing of accountability partners. Since John and Bryan are owners of martial arts studios and their core messages are very similar, they have been paired up as accountability partners. Listen to discover how the tools and tactics offered by the Duct Tape Marketing System has helped John and Bryan reach new levels of success.

Questions I ask John and Bryan:

  • What are some of the joys as well as some of the challenges that you have faced as an entrepreneur?
  • Which component of the Duct Tape Marketing System has made the greatest impact?
  • What do you feel that the Duct Tape marketing System has meant for the growth of your business?

What you’ll learn if you give a listen:

  • How the Marketing Hourglass can help you build a solid foundation for your business
  • Why identifying the “ideal customer” is a necessary component of any successful marketing plan
  • What specific features the Duct Tape Marketing System offers and real-life examples of how businesses apply these tactics to aid in their growth
