The Right Way (and the Wrong Way) to Ask for Reviews
"Welcome to another episode of Marketing School I'm Eric Su and I'm Neil Patel and today we're GonNa talk about the right way and the wrong way to ask for reviews. But first we're talking about asking for us what kind of websites are we referring to I'm assuming we're talking about YELP G to Capterra decides the websites. Well. First off it just hit me I. Think we're almost four years into this podcast. We are. Oh, we're almost at fifteen hundred. We are four years into it as of this recording. Right it's crazy. Thinking about that. All right. So the reason reviews are important is If you do reviews happy for your anniversary Yay. If you get reviews. See back in the day when Amazon was I doing e commerce people buying products on Amazon and then Jeff Basil's was like Yeah I want to let people review them why you WanNa let them review it. He's like whatever Chris the best experience is what's going to help me win in the long run. And that was right and then reviews weren't just used for e contract started being used for to be services software literally anything that you can think of. and. The reviews are effective is look as humans. We all make mistakes aren't perfect but ones if you when you spend your dollar or your pound or your ruby or whatever currency using. If you can make sure you're getting what you want, and that's what reviews do. They don't guarantee that you're getting what you spend your money on, but it increases the chances that you're getting what you want when you spend your money. Yup I'm just GonNa give some real life examples where I just remember I got a good experience or a bad experience I. Remember one time post made. Using deliver rouw whatever door dash, wherever you dear food deliver UBEREATS, whatever. So Post mates delivered something to me and the guy sent me this really long text afterwards like you know gas is really expensive and it's really hard to drive to you and all that and he's like, give me this entire story. I really appreciate if you leave a five star review and also give me a tip as well. It looked like it was a can message and it just was not a good experience. Afterwards, that is a wrong way. DASS reviews a right way I remember afterwards I bought a product and then there was a card it only asked for review but gave me something else as well. So it sort of is me to write through and say, Hey, no pressure at all. But if you leave a review, it'd be. Really. Helpful for us and just please be honest and also by the way, here's another bonus for you. So they didn't need to do that and it was really optional and they kept it lighthearted that actually may be wanting to do it because if you look at whatever have online yelp or whatever. I, usually don't write reviews but if I'm compelled to do it because I felt incentivize do it in essence is. Getting at is the right way is to help people and do what's best for them. You can always do the soft ass but the wrong way is bribery and saying, write a good review and I'll give you this and you see some companies doing that it's just not genuine and don't look at reviews as off I get more five star reviews than people are going to buy from me well, if you're faking. The reviews in your incentivizing people in the wrong way, what's going to happen is you'll get the high reviews temporarily but then event, you'll keep getting negative views as well or you want people to just leave real reviews and when the leave bad reviews figure out how you can improve your parked or experience or your service. So that way in the future people nationally way better reviews which will naturally increase your sales. You might as well ask for the real feedback can you give me some honest feedback whether it's to stars four stars, five stars whatever because it helps make you better what I found from one of my friends restaurants is that they're yelp just started exploiting with reviews because they just kept getting better and better and they kept driving an amazing experience. The food was amazing. Experience was amazing. Amazing to be there and boom. It was four and a half stars and hundreds of reviews right if you can do that cut into what Neil was saying earlier with Jeff, bezos obsess over the customer and you drive a good experience you're for sure gonNA.

SpaceX makes history with successful rocket launch
"Let's talk about space we lost some will not I don't and and and a lot of firsts were involved in this first of all it it was a private space company SpaceX which started in I think two thousand two and Eli must company a private space rocket company they worked along side NASA they pick they basically SpaceX did the whole thing from start to finish they designed the rocket they designed the capsule and and these guys launch astronauts Doug Hurley and Bob bank in Bob and Doug they kept calling him on the launch I was watching the live feed and I could not not think about the SCTV scary for the movie strange brew with Bob and Doug McKenzie I can't want to calm hoser it it is I don't I I love this kind of stuff I think it's absolutely fascinating and if if you're like why are people making such a big deal about this because it was everywhere a bunch of people watched it everybody was talking about it I'm it it is it is really quite a remarkable thing and you've got these two seasoned astronauts right these guys are like that the commander dog is a marine pilot he's been to space a couple times this guy has flown he's docked with the international space station on his own he's manual controls that is a nearly impossible task it's not tried searching for I did I'll try searching for it on link then you will have a hard time finding this guy to hire they hired like one of the white people in the planet is the only got this particular job yeah in or off the planet he's the only guy but but this time they used computers they launching these if you saw any of the video it's this beautifully sleek cushioned capsule that they're in they have and I can explain why mom was a who owns SpaceX yon yep and if you look at the inside the capsule looks like it really does Tesla's known for having a steering wheel in a TV essential hand side and end up breaking out into the Aggie can't look out of gas pedal and accelerator pedal and that's what the inside of this without the accelerator pedal that's what the inside of this looked like it was all touch screen also not like what you the the the NASA space capsule that you have come to admire and from from movies it doesn't look like anything like that anymore it looks much much more modern it is what the future space flight in one of the significant things here is this is the the beginning of the privatization of space flight right the the way it used to work was was it's not like that there have been private contractors building the stuff if you work at Boeing you know Boeing's history of building major components of every space mission I'm going it was front center it doesn't really happen without bowing right and other American contractors who do who developed a high tech but it was all in the auspices in the funding of NASA this is different NASA was involved but essentially NASA was the contractor helping these guys get to outer space it becomes it's a very interesting reversal of roles and if you don't think that that Jeff Basil's and his blue origin was sitting out there both rooting for and against the wasn't reading I think Francis aster but he certainly wasn't rooting for massive success unless he feels like Hey there's it's a big universe there's room out there for all of us it was very very interesting to think about I mean for you one must love him or hate him in in you probably do both on the on any given month given the way the guy behaves getting a space program off the ground in from two thousand when it was it was too two thousand ten till now is a standing yeah without denial of land over rockets and you know it wise it really is kind of remarkable and this is if you or anything of a space junkie and I am this was a real historic day and worth seeing and on top of that like we talked about once before on the show there is a simulator where you can actually try to really high it's it's similar to what you can try and doc this thing on your own that is it marks up the similar it simulated that they used I don't know how many times I ended up into deep space on saleable or brand right into the space station because I couldn't get it done they used to have like a a simulator in Cape Canaveral in Florida and I went down there with my dad when I was a kid and he's a pilot he he's a commercial if he's one big jets and everything he gets in the similar I barely I mean he didn't he didn't do it he couldn't actually do but got really really close and he's like man that was like the hardest thing I've ever done right the space shuttle used to have I this is my favorite part of storage space shuttle used to have two thousand manual switches right and you're when you're an astronaut you flick and then you're doing all the stuff turn these this this has twenty from two thousand to twenty everything is touch screen and these guys Bob especially the commander he's an old school marine and at first he was like I don't know about all this because when you're wearing the big astronaut gloves and you're flipping switches and it's real important that those switches get flipped there's you know when you physically flipped it or toggled it or whatever it is that right with a touch screen he's he's like that took a lot of getting used to so the SpaceX people are like we got you Bob and they created like a like a little like bloom like when you touch the screen you see some sort of a visual indication well it is actually touched it's the whole thing in your phone we're so between the two at the haptic response to refer to it as when your phone buzzes or clicks right when you do that kind of stuff the reason that they keep the shutter noise in a camera what they don't need the center noise in the camera anyway all of these things are because we're so a **** waited to flicking that switch to feeling that resistance some sort of physical contact with it and so they just dumbing it up for our own company even though it's not necessary that's exactly what they did here everybody knows Houston as in Houston you have a problem mission control this is as Mike said not a NASA mission so mission control you with they heard they heard voices from Hawthorne California that's for SpaceX is based out of so this is just changing changing the whole game yeah I mean but you know Hawthorne has its own problems so I suppose in some point locally we never get to that point and it and I think that that's really what now so it was not built solely to make space a government enterprise but to alternately allow this sort of building to happen and I think NASA's done a really remarkable job of pivoting to what the future is in becoming sort of this agency to essentially becoming an incubator for private space right and that is actually not a dumb thing for for them to do and and now we have four companies and more in other countries that are actually buying for this for this sort of dominance it's a pretty interesting thing it really is it's one of those many things like we talk about in Seattle that underscores what it what it what a real setback it feels like for Paul Allen to have died because he was also involved in a project out of Syria and so a lot of a lot of effort now in the private sector of doing this thing but this thing being successful is good news for everybody including other companies that are competing with them because we needed to see it happen from a private company and I certainly hope that this is just the beginning of a really really interesting future

"jeff basil" Discussed on KIRO Radio 97.3 FM
"I always point out yeah hi Jeff Basil's makes twenty million that were twenty billion dollars I we say to you Tom I checked my bank account to make sure it wasn't smaller because I saw that Jeff Basil's made more how is it that the rich guy makes more the poor guy makes less that well see ya true well if you if you are one of the people in his warehouse you're probably not making if he's profiting you may not be profiting you're only you're working a tough hours for if not minimum wage and a lot of sounds like you better get a job in a fitting words sounds like a plan to get another job or sounds like it better on the weekends go was returned there or go to school at night I mean come on but there are rules there are rules of the road when it comes to businesses and that consensus in this country is that an addon business doesn't fight this in a lot all the time that yeah that they do something to come to the community for their customers and so that's what we're doing right now she as a social she wants to take a lot more than most of us are uncomfortable with but the philosophy isn't it isn't obtuse it's just something it's more extreme than most Americans want to go along with what I mean the something with A. O. if you want to work on Monday they paid you for Monday do they owe you anything just to the employer to the employee to the general sins no I'm not talking about the general society generally we I hate taxes right I mean like so there are people the government takes our taxes and some taxes go to the military and some people don't think it should go to the military but they don't have that choice they're living in this country and we've agreed that Congress can determine how much money goes the military how much money goes for social spending how much money goes you know for so security whatever these are the kinds of compromises that we make in the society I understand but I'm basically saying when you she makes the argument that the rich guy doesn't deserve the money and therefore the use you can take it from him that's a long and tired tired argument that's been made will not on its class envy it's such yes you have a class MD stir up the rattle get them to feel like their life is crappy and it's not their fault it's not that they didn't apply themselves it's not a big it high on the weekends it's the rich guy and that's what your life is so bad yes the rich guy is making your life miserable now if your life is miserable the loss of your life is miserable because you make bad choices that's why your life is not her not only John there are structural Inc inconsistencies in our country that make it such that you can't just not everybody's going to be able to make it to the top and it's not just because the people to make it up are better that's the problem so what you have some some social inequities that need to be addressed yeah and I I'm saying Bill Gates has made a fortune and he's done a lot of things climbing to the top the people resented member he was sort of the the embodiment of evil and now he's become like the Mr philanthropy of all the of all time because of it so it's this idea of paying back to society that's a good thing you don't owe society anything if you paid the man the dollar that you owe them the dollar you owe him nothing more you don't owe anything to society in Bill Gates took all of the money and he's moved over over into a trust that spins off the interest he takes that interest and he's able to protect themselves in huge taxes on the rest of it he can Scott so much money he can do whatever he wants with it he can give it reaching all the way right that's fine read and gotten all those other billionaires and millionaires to sign up and say yes that I will turn over items like ninety eight percent of my fortune when I die right I got a six year the kids but if you care about it when he's when he's here and he did everything he could to avoid taxes when he was running his businesses and now is that right so we have a highly ends and then you give it away then you're a Saint but while you're making it you're a horrible man that's right that's the compromise and that's why you don't that's why you don't freeze it you don't villain eyes the people like Molly moon said about Gemma someone don't see them just as the enemy don't see them as just as evil and corrupt if they are attacked Rary Alyssa Milano creates how about the fact that if Mellie moon's nodes doesn't get taxed as she's not seven million dollars on the payroll but if I went in with a wax her how she'd feel about it Tom baseball is back we heard another report for the coming baseball season where the leak would be maybe reorganized into three regional divisions the league might start in late June and no later than July second is that the actual plan as far as your hearing or is it just another proposal and we're still like you may be in the dark as far as when baseball or that's Paul go on from seven ten ESPN talking to Jerry Dipoto turn this photo of the mariners yeah that that has not been conveyed to them for the best of my knowledge the other twenty nine baseball operations teams that that that was the plan but there are so many different I guess discussions happening around our re entry or re opening the baseball season the one thing I can say with certainty is that what we are hearing is a renewed or I guess more optimistic view of of the short and mid term out over the last week or ten days there has been a lot more optimism and momentum toward the idea of returning to play in and I think it's you know frankly we're all itching to do it and frankly the fact that there are more discussion that that appeared to be leaning toward returning to play I'm playing in our home ballparks is is equally as exciting and and not just because it gets baseball back on the field but now also because they give the church a long answer so we're getting closer to returning easy for you to say you're on the callous jury could come down here he couldn't what do you think he's bought out dancer with the I don't know I haven't heard hello I've got a theory they they've now floated three really fascinating proposals I think they did that for sports talk radio to give some to talk about D. which of the three would you prefer I am now going to combine baseball and socialism into.

7 Unconventional Ways We Run Our Companies |
"I'm Eric Su and I'm Neil Patel and today we are going to talk about seven confessional ways. We've run our companies all right so I will start with way number one so we have a hybrid remote model so we like remote were remote friendly. I'll say it that way. So on the agency side. Because we can having to serendipity of people getting creative and talking in a room and there's just a lot of ideas that go back and forth and a lot of touch points on that we do a three to model meaning that were in the offices Monday through Wednesday and Thursday Friday. People work from home and they really liked that model because Thursday Friday ticket to just focus on the work and then by the time. Monday rolls around. They're excited to come back into work. And then when did her Wednesday crinkle meetings again and just go back home? So that's worked out really well for us over the years so this would be number two unconventional way that I run my companies is I was put a CEO in place. So I'm a big believer. No matter what I do. You always want someone leading the ship. Whose amazing operations growing recruiting and I believe in folks as well also every time. I'm running a business a technically one. I never run a business but to put a CEO in place who's been successful. And when I heard the usual look for someone who's done it successfully before at least two times because if they've only done it successfully once it could be locked done at twice. The chances are they really are good at it so they should be able to do it a third time. Yup and the other thing. I'll say is probably applies Neil as well but we are generally pretty direct with our feedback. Sometimes there's organizations where they actually all tied in with a couple of things but people will sugarcoat things right. People don't WanNa rock the boat. They don't want to make people feel sad. They don't want people cry generally my personality and Neal's first now is we delivered read feedback if things aren't going well it's like hey we're seeing this with the numbers right now. Does seem like things are going. Well what can I do to help right? We delivered directly back. But it's also comes from a place of continued to help the company before because the company is a high performance sports team so if things aren't going well for someone over time that what will try to do we got this from Bob. Glazer from acceleration. Partners is someone's done well for us over the years and it just doesn't seem to be clicking anymore. We'll offer a mindful transition program. Meaning that you know. We'll help them find something and we'll continue to pay them and then we'll make it a good thing for them where the departure was amicable and it wasn't like someone got fired from that right so there's no surprises on both sides. So that is what number three number four. I love creating ten percent. Profit sharing pool for people who can just crank and generate revenue. And I make a dog eat dog world where it doesn't matter what your title is depending on your performance. That's how much you can end up getting the lowest person on the totem pole. But if you're producing the most impact for the business in theory you can have a bigger stake of a profit-sharing pool. Now I try to do this for all my companies. It doesn't always work out and the reason being is when you first start amount allowed times. You're losing money or breaking even in those cases you can't have a profit sharing will once they grow to be big enough then rolled out that concept and I took a lot of the modeling from profit-sharing pool from Sequoia if you look out partners at sequoia capital when they invest in companies and they have home runs and exits? They don't just split the money evenly? The people who bring the best deals in performed the best tend to make the most money from that will all right number five. We encourage people to have side projects because we think the work that we do requires creative thinking so if you're working on side projects a lot of creative work that you're doing is actually going to carry over into company. Someone has a creative project really takes off good for them. They can start their own thing more power to them but at the same time my company actually got the benefit from the learnings that they put forth and the experiments that they read so better across the board people feel happier. And you don't WanNa limit people saying oh you can have side projects. I'm as long as not competitive to the company that they're part of Dan. There's generally no complaints another unconventional thing that we do in this is number six. We're really big on lunch and learns and I know a lot of companies are rolling that out and they'll disc of like a presentation on a topic are way doesn't work out that way so like for example on my last lunch and learn that I did. I tend to do myself. I'll end up breaking on topic so the topic was content. Marketing and blogging. And I went over with a group of how to write amazing content for blog posts and I didn't care what department they were in. Everyone had to start writing blog posts and on the spot so the lunch last hour. So I'm telling people to come up with the topic of teaching them how to write an introduction having them do it right then and there on the spot and then they got to read it out loud and I'm critiquing them critiquing. Everyone's I'm doing it in a positive proactive way where we can learn from it. When I'm critiquing I'm telling him here's what you can fix and how to make it better so I'll do these types of lunch and learn every other week and the reason being is helps people sharpen up their skills. No matter what position you're in you can always learn more. You can always be sharper. And I don't like just the concept of teaching strategies talking as you want them to do it because the moment they're doing it and implementing it that means are learning it and it works out much better for them versus them just reading about it all right last but not least number seven so we got this from Jeff Bezos. This is how Amazon things so back in the day. Even now they do. Something called memos and this could be basically. Let's Neil comes up with an idea right instead of saying. Hey I'm going to call a meeting because I have a new idea you're required to write a memo and sometimes really good memo takes a week or longer to write and it's basically okay. Here's the new idea but it starts with the press release so everyone is a down in a room and the read. The press release I another read frequently asked questions an overview around the idea. What resources required all this different stuff? So it's basically like a speck of the project with the press. Release in there so people can get a good idea of what they're trying to accomplish but what happens there after everyone had room the read the memo for maybe ten to thirty minutes or so then a debate will happen and then you know the last five minutes of the meeting. Basically there'll be a decision that will be made now what this basically forces is. It will scare people from basically throwing meetings whenever they WANNA throw meetings and forces clarity of thought as well and then also because you know everyone read the document and all the questions are answered from that document because that person all the effort you get a decision much faster and you move a lot faster and when you call a memo meeting like that. You're also very cognizant of all the time that you're going to take from the other people because if you're dragging a bunch of busy executives into a room and you know you clearly didn't think through things and they're not happy at the end of it. You are going to be in trouble at the end so memo expensive too right. You're wasting everyone's time everyone's getting paid. Which is a huge expense company? Neil you and I think about that all the time if people are just sitting in meetings kind of just messing around. We're just thinking about all the money going out the door right. Do we have a rule to in our AD agency. We don't like more than three people in a meeting. And it's not that we don't want meetings. We want people to work on the client work and not just sitting doing meeting. Because if you're sitting in a meeting you're not getting work done for our client. Sure you need meetings here and there to strategize figure out what we're doing how we're getting people better results but is not going to happen unless you go out there and do the work so we don't want people in meetings all day. Yeah Fun thing. I'll say from my side is I was reading hacker news. Basically you can just Google Amazon Hacker News and Jeff Basil's memo something like that right you'll find it and people that used to work for Amazon ended up starting their own companies. They said by far the biggest impact thing they got was learning how to take that memo system into their new company. And so I actually got it after. I was reading the Amazon shareholder letters. There's this book that summarize all the shareholder letters Dow's biggest takeaway. I got from that book so we started doing it and the results have been incredible so far so I'll have to report again on it. Maybe in a year or so but so far so good so I recommend checking that
