Tweetable Quotes

“I’m not constantly tinkering. I don’t have a thousand business ideas. I have lived experience. And I lived as a B2B marketer for fifteen years. I’ve seen it from every angle. I’ve seen things go well and things not go well. I’ve seen the shiny new objects, the new platforms and the new channels. The one thing that’s always been true to me is human connection. So it was that that innately told me that podcasting and video are good.” (14:17) (Lindsay) 

“We integrate with different CRMs, different CMS, with different marketing automation platforms with the B2B marketer in mind. Where are they working now? Where are their teams working? What are they already using that we need to flow into, pull from, push to to make their lives easier and help them get maximum value out of the creative work they’re doing?” (26:30) (Lindsay) 

“You need to slow down in order to generate better results. You need to focus on creating really great content, which is probably going to come at the cost of quantity. Better quality, even if it comes at the cost of quantity, can make it really good. But then that’s where this approach of amplification comes into play. Take the time to get really intentional about creating something meaningful.” (28:41) (Lindsay) 

“It’s not just about the show, it’s about what was said. It’s about everything in it. It’s about the content that’s there. And then, that’s where you get to get really creative as a marketer around what else am I gonna do with it. How am I gonna use it in lots of different ways to build those connections?” (36:09) (Lindsay) 

“One thing that I’ve been advocating for and that we at Casted have been advocating for is that podcasting should be the center [of your marketing strategy]. Your podcast should be the middle and your audio and video content should be the nucleus of everything else you’re doing and we’re starting to see that.” (51:56) (Lindsay)
