The FWD: Thinking Show Episode 1: How to create trusted content that ranks, with Lee Odden
In episode 1 of The FWD: Thinking Show, we’re joined by Lee Odden, CEO of TopRank Marketing, to share how influencer marketing and search engine optimization (SEO) can be combined to create content that is not only findable but credible for prospects actively looking for solutions. Because without trust, they won’t engage or buy.
Lee dives into how to understand what your potential customers are searching for, and where trust comes into the equation. He explains that a lot of customers don’t trust ads, and — even more surprisingly — they don’t trust search engine results.
So, how do you connect with individuals that can help you make content and promote that content to audiences that are hard to reach? Lee answers that question and many more in this episode.
The FWD: Thinking Show Episode 2: Build ‘know, like, & trust’ among your audience, with Rieva Lesonsky
Businesses frequently promise too much and deliver too little. No wonder consumers question the value of products and services before they buy. They lack trust.
In this episode, you’ll learn from small business influencer and thought leader, Rieva Lesonsky, CEO of GrowBizMedia. She shares simple ways to build trust, increase brand “likeability,” and give your audience the confidence to buy from you again and again.
She also warns small businesses to be wary of any marketing tactic that tries to convince you that it is “the only tactic you need.” Plus, learn the biggest mistake Rieva’s seen small businesses make — over and over — throughout the years.
Rieva’s a wealth of knowledge for small businesses. And, if you haven’t quite made the jump to entrepreneurship just yet, Rieva’s positivity and mindset might just be the thing to convince you.

The FWD: Thinking Show Episode 3: How to stop second-guessing your content marketing creativity, with Julia McCoy
In episode 3 of The FWD: Thinking Show, CEO of Express Writer & Content Hacker Julia McCoy shares her entrepreneurial journey — starting with dropping out of college at age 19 and starting from scratch after escaping a cult.
An established content marketer and writer, Julia explains what factors play a part in email marketing success — and failure. She uncovers insights on how to get your emails read, how to create email campaigns that provide value while simultaneously persuading your audience to purchase, and what you can do to learn from the best in your industry.
Then, Julia provides real, tactical advice for how you can escape the everyday hustle and bustle to tap into your inner creativity and create truly unique and powerful content.
You’ll learn how to tap into your inner creativity — no matter how scary it might be — to create heartfelt campaigns that resonate with your audience.
