Ep 82: Dean Jackson – Compelling, Not Convincing
In This Episode
We’re proud to welcome back Dean Jackson, our first ever guest, as our first repeat guest at TAM.
Dean’s philosophy and teachings about marketing have made him a true celebrity in the industry. He is friend and “speed dial” consultant to the business elite, including Tony Robbins, Peter Diamandis, Ariana Huffington and many more.
In this episode we talk about Deans’ latest marketing philosophy about how to “compel vs. convince” your audience to lean in and take action with you.
This is a major mindset shift for most marketers, especially those stuck in the old way of hard hitting direct response tactics that simply do not work longterm.
Dean hosts the I Love Marketing podcast with Joe Polish. His new podcast is More Cheese, Less Whiskers. He also hosts workshops to teach others how to use marketing in their business to turn leads into income. He’s an active member of the Copy Chief community.
