1# Filipa Canelas: As I’m aware, you are now publishing one youtube video per day. So how do you come up with new ideas for creating content every day? Do you have any type of creative ritual?
1# Marc Guberti: Just to clarify, I no longer post one new YouTube video every day. However, I do come out with at least one new video per day. Most of my videos go to my membership sites and paid training courses because my customers are my most important type of visitor. I come up with ideas by learning as much about my niche as possible. I aim to read 5-10 books every month and listen to a TED Talk every day. All of this extra knowledge gives me more video and content ideas.\
2# Filipa Canelas: How would your schedule look like, if tomorrow you had 100% of focus + 100% of energy + 100% of time (24 hours). Basically, what would you do on a perfect day?
2# Marc Guberti: Great question! I’d interview four people for my podcast and spread those interviews throughout the day. Those interviews get me pumped and allow me to approach my work with greater vigor. I’d also run a long distance workout and do 1-2 hours of cross training. 2-3 hours would go towards content creation. I’d then spend 2 hours on influencer marketing and promoting my brand. The rest of the time would go towards preparation for my Content Marketing Success Summit as organizing a virtual summit is A LOT of work.
3# Filipa Canelas: I really enjoy reading your month Performance reports, because your results and accomplishments are always incredible. You get a lot of stuff done! But, if you could only work in one project this month, what would that be? And what would you do to increase your results?
3# Marc Guberti: If I could only work in one project this month, I’d choose my upcoming Content Marketing Success Summit. I learn a lot similar to podcast interviews and virtual summits are one of the best ways to build your audience and generate revenue.
4# Filipa Canelas: I’m a huge fan of morning rituals, because they changed my life. Do you have any type of ritual to begin a new day? If so, please describe it.
4# Marc Guberti: I wake up and focus on the breakfast before anything else. A little after I eat, I’ll then go out for a long run. Exercise is very important to my productivity and overall life.
5# Filipa Canelas: What is the most precious advice you can give me to increase my results on Pinterest (more Repins, followers, etc)?
5# Marc Guberti: Create group boards and contribute on group boards.
6# Filipa Canelas: You started blogging in a really young age. What was the biggest struggle you faced when you were starting? And what did you do to overcome it?
6# Marc Guberti: Getting the audience is the hardest part, and some people were mean in the beginning because of my age. Many people saw me as the teen with potential but the comments I got from some individuals were brutal and entirely based on my age (along the lines of too young to be an expert). In the beginning, these comments hurt, but I learned that people only criticize you because you matter. Bad critics just watch success happen from afar. Some criticism is good, but I have no respect for people who criticize just for the sake of dragging others down.
7# Filipa Canelas: If you could only live by one principle what would that be? And why?
7# Marc Guberti: Never give up on the dreams that mean the most to you. It’s okay to give up in some scenarios. If you feel unmotivated to continue, don’t put yourself through that struggle. However, if you desperately want to accomplish something to the point of feeling incomplete if you don’t accomplish it, then NEVER give up on that. Find a way even when others say no.
8# Filipa Canelas: What are you now working on?
8# Marc Guberti: The Content Marketing Success Summit which I’ll be hosting in June. I’ve barely started working on it and have a LONG way to go. Parkinson’s Law is starting to kick in so I’ll get it all done very soon.
9# Filipa Canelas: Where can we stalk you, Marc Guberti?
9# Marc Guberti: marcguberti.com is the best place to go (Marc with a C). I cannot tell you how many people spell my name with a K even when they see Marc in the URL and everywhere else they look. Don’t be that guy (or gal). I could have recommended my social networks, but the objective of all of my social networks is to build the relationship and lead people over to my blog. If you, the reader, reached this far, then the relationship is already built. So I’ll only recommend my blog marcguberti.com as a means of stalking me online.
