We´re live. John talks about a new server they´re testing which is better and self-maintained. Its been a whole adventure coming back to Linux based server. Lots of stuff to relearn and mistakes made during the process. Sweet come back to programming for John.

Mani talks about the social media marketing world, he´s evaluating if it's going to go or not pros and cons etc. The Best pro is the amount of the great connections that he makes during these conferences, the content of the conference is not that important at all, the connections make it worth it.

The group talks about wich conferences are they going to go this year. They all agreed that is a necessary evil, to thrive on any business you need to make contacts and conferences are the best places to find them.

There are a few conferences that have a value as the conference itself not only for the money (If you´re speaking on it) but the actual content, but this not a common occurrence for the guys. Most of the people go to the cconference to get a higher audience but they´re not getting the point of it.

Thoughts of the week

MANI – “CONNECTIONS WITH PEOPLE ARE EXTREMELY VALUABLE”
JOSH- “I THINK IM GOING TO BUY… IS THE EXACT REACTION YOU WANT FROM A COSTUMER”
JOHN-”I DON’T SUBMIT TO ABSTRACTS… PEOPLE HAVE TO INVITE ME TO SPEAK IN”

Thoughts of the week

MANI – “ A LOT OF TIME WE PRODUCE CONTENT WITHOUT LOOKING AT THE BIGGER PICTURE”

Mar 12, 2019

John Talks about the launch of the Bulldog Mindset Membership and the person that he hired to this, which actually was a deal that he couldn’t refuse and turn to be great, and a whole lot of plans that he has for Bulldog Mindset.

Josh and John get into a long discussion on when to know and how to handle small response offers, it is completely worth it and it keeps appearing a lot, especially sponsors who just want to make money a do not completely understand the whole process. Definitely, lots of time lost when you deal with stuff like this.

JOHN –“SMALL RESPONSE BUSINESS IS NOT WORTH IT”

Mar 5, 2019

We´re Live, Charles starts off saying that he is in California too for a conference and tells John that he pissed off about what John said last week about him being bored. Tells him that John is completely right and because of this, he has become more productive than before. Also tells Mani that he was right too, really good advice for Charles last week has paid off.

John Talks about that he´s been doing a lot of videos based on current stuff that is happening right now, and that youtube is working that way now, kinda like a “Trending Topic” situation. Mani adds to the conversation that this could problematic due to the types of subscribers you will get doing this, it can easily get off track of the original content of the channel. Its something to keep an eye on.

Mani gets to a point that says your business model cannot be based on a social network, at any given moment that social network can totally change or even completely fail, just like Myspace. This is happening to a lot of YouTubers because youtube keeps changing every day.

On this note to get the audience you want, you have to think like the costumer, how would you like to be treated and even get that feeling of belonging to something that can be more fulfilling than any product out there.

Josh adds to this that positioning and time are crucial in this game, gives an example of a business that is not refined right now but its working because the product is hot.

Thoughts of the week

MANI- “AS A COSTUMER THE JOURNEY MUST NEVER END, IT SHOULD BE A CONSTANT”
JOSH- “IN ORDER TO GROW, YOU HAVE TO BE IN THE RIGHT PLACE AND THE RIGHT TIME”
