Hall-of-Fame-nominated marketer and Wall Street Journal cartoonist Stu Heinecke shares a few of the secrets he uses to get past traditional gatekeepers to reach those elusive high level influencers. In this talk, you'll find out why "contact marketing" is exactly what you need to take your success to a whole new level.

About the Book:  You know how to sell—that’s your job, after all—but getting CEOs and VIPs to call you back is the tricky part. You’re in luck: That impossible-to-reach person isn’t so impossible to reach after all.

Hall-of-Fame-nominated marketer and Wall Street Journal cartoonist Stu Heinecke discovered that he could get past traditional gatekeepers to reach those elusive executives by thinking outside the box and using personalized approaches he calls “Contact Campaigns.” Including presidents, a prime minister, celebrities, countless CEOs, and even the Danish model who became his wife, Heinecke found that getting meetings with previously unreachable people was easier than ever. Now he shares his tactics and tips in this essential guide for anyone who needs to make contact.

In How to Get a Meeting with Anyone, Heinecke explains how you can use your own creative Contact Campaigns to get those critical conversations. He divulges methods he’s developed after years of experience and from studying the secrets of others who’ve had similar breakthrough results—results that other marketers considered impossible, with response rates as high as 100 percent. Through real-life success stories, Heinecke lays out 20 categories of Contact Campaigns that anyone can research and execute. Tactics range from running a contact letter as a full-page ad in The Wall Street Journal to unorthodox uses of the phone, social media, email, and snail mail to using personalized cartoons to make connections. He also packs in plenty of tips on how to determine your targets, develop pitches, and gain allies in your contact’s circle of influence.

How to Get a Meeting with Anyone provides you with a new toolkit you can put to work right away so you can make the connections that are essential to your success.

About the Author:  If ever there were someone born to write a book like How To Get A Meeting with Anyone, Stu Heinecke is that person. A Wall Street Journal cartoonist, Hall of Fame-nominated marketer and author, Heinecke discovered the magic of "Contact Marketing" early in his career, when he launched a Contact Campaign to just two dozen Vice Presidents and Directors of Circulation at the big Manhattan-based magazine publishers. That tiny $100 investment resulted in a 100% response rate, launched his enterprise and brought in millions of dollars worth of business.

Heinecke is the host and author of the How To Get A Meeting with Anyone podcast and blog, and founder and president of Contact, a Contact Marketing agency, and cofounder of Cartoonists.org, a coalition of famed cartoonists dedicated to raising funds for charity, while raising the profile of the cartooning art form. He lives on an island in the pristine Pacific Northwest with his wife, Charlotte, and their dog, Bo.

Polling and trending expert Mark Penn joins me on the show to talk about some of the small, but surprisingly powerful forces that are driving big disruptions in today's business, politics, and culture.

About the Book:  Mark Penn has boldly argued that the future is not shaped by society’s broad forces but by quiet changes within narrow slices of the population. Ten years ago, he showed how the behavior of one small group can exert an outsized influence over the whole of America. His bestselling Microtrends highlighted dozens of tiny, counterintuitive trends that have since come to fruition, from the explosion of internet dating to the recent split within the Republican Party.

Today, the world is in perplexing upheaval, and microtrends are more influential than ever. In this environment, Penn offers a necessary perspective.

Microtrends Squared makes sense of what is happening in the world today. Through fifty new microtrends, Penn illuminates the shifts that are coming in the next decade. He pinpoints the unseen hand behind new power relationships that have emerged—as fringe voters and reactionary politics have found their revival, as online influencers overshadow traditional media, and as the gig economy continues to invade new swathes of industry. He speaks to the next wave of developments coming in technology, social movements, and even dating.

Offering a clear vision of the future of business, politics, and culture, Microtrends Squared is a must-read for innovators and entrepreneurs, political and business leaders, and for every curious reader looking to under­stand the wave of the future when it is just a ripple.

About the Author:  Mark Penn has spent over forty years in polling, marketing, advertising, and strategy at the highest levels of business and politics. As a leading pollster, he was chief strategist in the presidential campaigns of Bill and Hillary Clinton and is credited with identifying the influential “soccer moms” trend. He has advised Bill Gates and Tony Blair, among other world leaders, as well as companies from Ford to Verizon to Merck to McDonald’s. Today he is Chairman of the Harris Poll and Managing Partner of the Stagwell Group, a collection of digital marketing firms. He is the author of the New York Times bestselling book Microtrends and has written for the Wall Street JournalPolitico, and other publications.

I'm honored to welcome Matt Perman to the show to talk about his brand new book How to Get Unstuck, which I believe will become the new gold standard for how to live a life marked by God-honoring productivity.

About the Book:  Most of us are trying to make a difference where we are, yet feel overwhelmed, overloaded, and far too busy. Some even have great, world-changing ideas -- but get stuck trying to make them happen.  How do you get "unstuck" from these things to make a real difference -- without resorting to complex systems that take more time to keep up than they actually save?

How to Get Unstuck answers this question by introducing readers to ten core principles that are at the heart of becoming an effective person for the glory of God. These principles are flexible enough for people to adapt and apply them to their own life and context. 

This book is more than just good ideas that you read and never apply. How to Get Unstuck walks you step-by-step through the core principles that free you to be more effective in everything you do. Each chapter also has an "Unstuck Clinic" that allows you to reflect and apply the principles more fully to yourself.

How can we learn the discipline of personal effectiveness? Starting with the Scriptures and drawing on the best contemporary research, How to Get Unstuck shows you how to live an integrated life. True effectiveness is accomplishing God's purposes, in God's way, and for God's glory, and this book will show you how.

About the Author:  Matt is the author of the best-selling book What’s Best Next: How the Gospel Transforms the Way You Get Things Done and is a popular speaker on leadership, productivity, and theology from a God-centered perspective. His work has been featured in Christianity Today, The Gospel Coalition, and Desiring God.

In 2015 he co-founded the organization, What’s Best Next, to help empower Christians to be more productive in all areas of life, and to do so in a way that is God-centered and gospel-driven.

Prior to that he served for 13 years at Desiring God leading the web department, serving as director of strategy, and helping build the ministry for greater spreading. He has also served as director of marketing at Made to Flourish, an organization dedicated to equipping pastors to connect faith and work.

PR is ripe for transformation. Are you ready to embark on the Inbound PR journey? If you're a PR professional or PR agency owner, you don't want to miss my talk with HubSpot's Iliyana Stareva.

About the Book:  Inbound PR is the handbook that can transform your agency’s business. Today’s customer is fundamentally different, and traditional PR strategies are falling by the wayside. Nobody wants to feel “marketed to;” we want to make our own choices based on our own research and experiences online. When problems arise, we demand answers on social media, directly engaging the company in front of a global audience. We are the most empowered, sophisticated customer base in the history of PR, and PR professionals must draw upon an enormous breadth of skills and techniques to serve their clients’ interests. Unfortunately, those efforts are becoming increasingly ephemeral and difficult to track using traditional metrics. This book merges content and measurement to give today’s PR agencies a new way to build brands, evaluate performance and track ROI.

The ability to reach the new consumer, build the relationship, and quantify the ROI of PR services allows you to develop an inbound business and the internal capabilities to meet and exceed the needs of the most demanding client. In this digital age of constant contact and worldwide platforms, it’s the only way to sustainably grow your business and expand your reach while bolstering your effectiveness on any platform. This book shows you what you need to know, and gives you a clear framework for putting numbers to reputation.

  • Build brand awareness without “marketing to” the audience
  • Generate more, higher-quality customer or media leads
  • Close the deal and nurture the customer or media relationship
  • Track the ROI of each stage in the process

Content is the name of the game now, and PR agencies must be able to prove their worth or risk being swept under with obsolete methods. Inbound PR provides critical guidance for PR growth in the digital era, complete with a practical framework for stimulating that growth.

About the Author:  Iliyana Stareva is Global Partner Program Manager at HubSpot, where she ensures a partner-first approach and enables company teams to collaborate, communicate, and make change happen better across global offices. With a background in PR and agency business consulting as well as a fluent speaker and writer in Bulgarian, English, and German.

Whoever you are, whatever your financial situation, serial entrepreneur and CEO Matt Manero is here to give you a wake-up call to the reality that if you want to walk in freedom and experience the life of your dreams, it's going to take real money.

About the Book:  Twenty-five years ago, I set off on my own with nothing but a folding table and a phone. For years, real success eluded me. I told people I was doing well when I was often on the edge of being broke. 

Millions of people face the same plight--including my beloved brother-in-law, who died tragically before he could fix his money problems. That was MY wake-up call. I knew I needed more money, but I didn't know how to get it. I only turned things around by getting honest with myself, taking responsibility for my situation, and figuring out some practical solutions. Now I'm going to show you how to do the same. 

In polite society, we don't like to talk about money. But it's too important to tiptoe around. In these pages, you and I are going to cut the BS and get real. For starters, I'll help you understand . . . 

  • How the money has moved. Stop making decisions based on advice that worked decades ago, but no longer.
  • The dangers of living in a "False Positive." It's easy to tell ourselves that we have enough-- until we're hit with medical bills, aging parents, tuition, or early retirement.
  • The cheap comfort of the blamer mind-set: It might feel good to blame the government, the economy, or your boss for your troubles, but it won't change anything. Do you want an excuse, or do you want more money?
  • The power of "Lifestyle by Design." Visualize your long-term goal and work backward to figure out how to get there.
  • The trade-offs of being an employer or employee. You can get rich by starting a business or by rising to the top of an existing organization.

Let's figure out what's right for you. It's going to take grit and guts, but if you follow my road map, you'll start accumulating real wealth, the kind that lets you live the life of your dreams and lasts for generations to come.

About the Author:  Matt Manero is a serial entrepreneur and the CEO of four companies, including Commercial Fleet Financing, which made the Inc. 500 list of America's fastest-growing companies two years in a row. He hosts a syndicated radio show and podcast on the Lifestyle Talk Radio Network and speaks to audiences around the country. He lives with his wife and three sons in Dallas.

About the Author:  Jason Hanson is a former CIA officer, security specialist, and winner of ABC's hit reality series Shark Tank. His previous book, Spy Secrets That Can Save Your Life, was a New York Times bestseller. Jason is a highly sought-after expert on safety and survival, and has appeared on The Rachael Ray Show, Today, Dateline, and elsewhere. He currently lives in Cedar City, Utah, with his family.
