Marketing Podcast with Roger Dooley
Podcast Transcript

Roger DooleyToday on the Duct Tape Marketing Podcast, I chat with author and keynote speaker Roger Dooley.

He is the founder of Dooley Direct, a consultancy, and co-founded College Confidential, the leading college-bound website. He’s been a serial entrepreneur since he left a senior strategy position at a Fortune 1000 company to enter the then-nascent home computer market.

He writes the popular blog Neuromarketing as well as a column at Forbes.com. He is also the author of the upcoming book Friction: The Untapped Force That Can Be Your Most Powerful Advantage (McGraw Hill, May 17, 2019).

On today’s episode, we discuss why friction can cause problems for a business, and how smart leaders can identify and eliminate friction as a way to distinguish themselves from their competition.

Questions I ask Roger Dooley:

  • How can you reduce friction when you don’t know it’s there?
  • Where can businesses start when they want to address user experience issues in their business?
  • How do you reduce friction in a business with a culture that’s resistant to change?

What you’ll learn if you give a listen:

  • How a smaller company can get an advantage over the big guys by reducing friction.
  • What organizational drag is and the effect it can have on your business.
  • How you can use friction for good when looking to change negative personal habits.
