Ludovic Thevelin advises app advertisers on their international growth strategies at Google. In this episode, host Maria Lannon talks to Ludovic about go-to-market considerations for different verticals, like gaming and fintech, how to make strategic decisions on international growth, today's most promising untapped markets, and the LTV opportunities of, what Google calls, Next Billion User Markets. Ludovic started working with Google eight years ago at their European headquarters in Dublin before moving to New York City and joining the international growth team five years ago.Questions Ludovic Answered in this Episode:As far as apps that you're advising, is there a specific vertical that you're working on?What types of mobile games expand the best? What's the most challenging part of localizing apps?How do KPIs differ for each market?Can you give an example of when a plan for expansion didn't work out?Do you see success in specific verticals?How do we think differently about LTV in emerging markets?What market should apps start thinking about?Timestamp:1:29 Ludovic's role at Google3:55 Scaling gaming apps internationally8:47 Making strategic decisions on regions10:11 Considerations for emerging markets11:01 When international growth strategies don't work out14:21 Growing fintech apps17:03 LTV opportunities in emerging markets21:22 Untapped markets & verticals27:30 Creative excellence32:31 ResourcesQuotes:(5:03-5:21) “A lot of advertisers think they're restricted by not having a different language outside of English, but we use something called an English Proficiency Index. If you Google that, there are a lot of external tools, free, that you can use to rank or rate markets based on how comfortable users are converting in English, and those are often markets that surprise your advertisers.”(5:29-5:50) “I think the most challenging part is the culturalization piece. So when we talk about localization, you can think of it as a spectrum. The first step in that translation piece. And yes, now you can address a local audience in a local language; but what we find is U.S. advertisers are copy-pasting what they're doing in the U.S. when they go to Germany and when they go to Japan and when they go to LATAM, but the users are very different.”Mentioned in this Episode:Ludovic Thevelin's LinkedInGoogle's Market FinderGoogle's Next Billion UsersGoogle's Mobile Insight Report

A Punch in the Face, Wrapped in a Warm Hug (ft. Laura Gassner Otting)Laura Gassner Otting on getting through fear and getting more with lessOPENING QUOTE:“I gave that talk holding on to the lectern. Like if I let go, I would fly into space and die. It was so scary but at the end of it, they handed me a check.”-Laura Gassner OttingGUEST BIO:Laura Gassner Otting, known worldwide as LGO, has been described as a punch in the face wrapped in a warm hug. After selling her extremely successful executive search firm, she entered the speaking industry and promptly blasted off. Applying extreme levels of curiosity, intensity, creative problem solving, and drive, she hit escape velocity in record time and continues to scale fast. She's the bestselling author of two books, and her extensive body of work is helping her deliver meaningful value to audiences around the globe.Links:WebsiteTwitterInstagramFacebookLinkedInCORE TOPICS + DETAILS:[3:08] - Lessons from Taylor SwiftKeynote speaking advice from an unexpected sourceWe start the episode in an unexpected place — a Taylor Swift concert. Laura shares how impressed she was with the way that Swift left plenty of space for the audience to be part of the show simply by cheering and showing appreciation. She goes on to say that this is something all keynote speakers could apply to their own approach. The more the audience feels like they're having a conversation rather than receiving information, the more engaged they'll be.[5:49] - The First OvationA small tweak to delivery that paid massive dividendsHow did Laura get more out of her speaking career? By giving less. “The first standing ovation I ever got was when I decided to…give 48 minutes of content during a 60-minute keynote.”She goes on to share how allowing moments for the audience to laugh, cry, cheer, and respond turned her speeches into conversations — and that made all the difference. It didn't just lead to her first standing ovation. It also led to major upward momentum in her career as she became an in-demand voice on stages everywhere.[9:10] - Laura's Identity CrisisIt's not all smooth sailing — even for LGOAfter feeling on top of the world having just sold her company amidst huge success, Laura had to face a moment of transformation. Who was she now that she wasn't “LGO, CEO”?Then, a contact encouraged her to get onstage. She gave her first talk ever at TEDx Cambridge in front of 2,600 people — and was terrified the entire time. But she got through it, delivered her message, and discovered something about herself. She had a passion for speaking. That discovery was waiting just on the other side of her terror. What discoveries do we miss because we're afraid?[13:48] - The Creative HackA video reel and a shot of career rocket fuelEarly in the development of her speaking career, Laura had a problem. She needed a video reel, but had only been onstage once. How could she put together a reel of multiple successful performances when she didn't have multiple successful performances.Simple. She rented an auditorium, brought an audio-visual setup, and ran through multiple pitch-perfect lines in multiple outfits. Boom. All of a sudden she had a professional-looking reel with what appeared to be multiple killer performances — even though most of them had come from the same day.The rest is history.[37:19] - From the Today Show to the Top of the Bestseller ListUncommon results require uncommon methodsHow did Laura get a book blurb from a huge name — one she didn't even know — that landed her spots on the Today Show and the bestseller list? Well, she asked. She relentlessly reached out to Amy Cuddy, until finally she had the chance to bug her in person. To her shock, Amy agreed to let Laura write a blurb on her behalf for approval. Laura didn't stop there. She wrote an audacious, intensely positive blurb. And it worked!RESOURCES:[9:35] Laura's Cambridge TEDx Talk[19:45] Limitless by LGO[37:20] About Amy CuddyFollow LGO:WebsiteTwitterInstagramFacebookLinkedInFollow Josh Linkner:FacebookLinkedInInstagramTwitterYouTubeABOUT MIC DROP:Hear from the world's top thought leaders and experts, sharing tipping point moments, strategies, and approaches that led to their speaking career success.

The Burleson Box: A Podcast from Dustin Burleson, DDS, MBA
Life is full of paradoxes. How can we each express our individuality while also being a team player? How do we balance work and life? How can we improve diversity while promoting opportunities for all? How can we manage the core business while innovating for the future?For many of us, these competing and interwoven demands are a source of conflict. Since our brains love to make either-or choices, we choose one option over the other. We deal with the uncertainty by asserting certainty.There's a better way.In Both/And Thinking, Wendy Smith and Marianne Lewis help readers cope with multiple, knotted tensions at the same time. Drawing from more than twenty years of pioneering research, they provide tools and lessons for transforming these tensions into opportunities for innovation and personal growth.Filled with practical advice and fascinating stories—including firsthand tales from IBM, LEGO, and Unilever, as well as from startups, nonprofits, and even an inn at one of the four corners of the world—Both/And Thinking will change the way you approach your most vexing problems. ***The Burleson Box is brought to you by Mastry:The Mastry App leverages HypnoBreathwork®, a cutting edge method using breathwork to clear energetic patterns, hypnosis to reprogram subconscious beliefs, and visioning to fire new neural pathways for sustainable behavior change.

Jayne Amelia speaks with Dr. Noah Nash. Noah is a foster care alumnus from very early childhood, as well as an educator and creative web designer-developer who is amplifying stories, products and projects with people, for people — as he says. His portfolio includes work in international children's rights, emerging technologies, social impact and philanthropy. Noah's ethos is empowering more people to mindfully leverage technology en route to materializing the world we all wish to see. As a co-host of the Revolution of Care (ROC) podcast (a media initiative of Peace4Kids.org a community organization which has served thousands of kids of youth in care in Los Angeles for the past 25 years), Noah broadens public perceptions of the foster care experience. Noah's joy for collective growth led to co-creating Garment Learning Studio in 2022, a digital membership for emerging fashion entrepreneurs to upskill and excel. As a longtime advocate, Noah deeply relishes relationship building to unearth new perspectives, reframe barriers, and strategically tackle challenges. His proudest accomplishments are being a loyal brother, a cool uncle and generous home cook. Oh and he loves animals!Peace4kids.orgThe Pointless Forest - a children's book honoring the foster care journeyRevolution Of Care Movement (ROCMove)and the ROCMove podcast Extended Foster Care (California AB 12)See bonusbabies.org to know more about what we are doing and please donate to support us by making a 100% tax-deductible contribution.

Will Google's new Search Generative Experience (SGE) help or harm site owners? Spencer and Jared kick off the latest episode of Niche Pursuits News pondering this question with some interesting findings as they look at various examples of search queries. They also reflect on a recent Twitter poll by Lily Ray and contemplate whether or not SGE seems to be an improvement over the existing Google search experience. For instance, in the event it turns out to be a glorified featured snippet and not so much AI as it is displaying site content directly on the SERPs, will Google provide attribution to site owners? They also consider how this GSE may work in YMYL niches. But in hopeful news, Bing AI has added links to sources of information within their AI results which could help put pressure on Google to do the same. The discussion then moves onto their shiny object shenanigans. Spencer shares some recent troubles he's run into with his faceless YouTube channel and what they're doing to fix it. Plus, he discusses how his upcoming plugin Rank Logic is coming along after beta testers finally got to use it. Then Jared gets into how he decided to jump into the Amazon influencer program and how he and his 201 Creative business partner Kaitlin managed to create 100 videos within a few days reviewing items in their homes. And as always, they close things out with some great niche site discoveries. Jared starts with Snake Dreams, a site that focuses on interpreting dreams about snakes. And although it's not doing so well these days, according to Ahrefs - back in 2017 it was receiving an average of 56,000 organic monthly visitors. Then it's onto Spencer's site highlight, Dimensions.com. This is a reference database for product dimensions founded by an architect that provides dimensions for various objects and people, including celebrities and fictional characters. The site is monetized via display ads and a subscription service that offers 2D and 3D downloads, no ads, easy download access, and support. And it appears the site is getting lots of traffic! So, it makes you wonder what's an problem or issue that people like have that could be turned into a helpful niche site! Overall, it's another helpful episode to wind down for the weekend, hope you enjoy.

Adam and Marc celebrate dads as they navigate the joys, challenges, and general insanity (CHAOS) that comes along with being a father. They explore the fatherhood experience through authentic, not often had, conversations along with a healthy dose of laughter, sincerity, vulnerability, and 80s/90s nostalgia. They have spoken with dads from all walks of life, from SNL alum Bobby Moynihan to MSNBC news anchor Craig Melvin and Sesame Street's Emilio Delgado. Adam Flaherty is a dad of two daughters and a director and editor of video content. Marc Checket is a dad of twin boys and an art director at a marketing agency.

"Is artificial intelligence advancing too quickly?" 60 Minutes warns. "BuzzFeed CEO says AI may revolutionize media, fears possible 'dystopian' path," CBS News tells us. "TV and film writers are fighting to save their jobs from AI. They won't be the last," CNN reports. Over and over, especially in recent months, we hear this line: AI is advancing so fast, growing so sophisticated, and becoming so transformative as to completely reshape the entire economy to say nothing of our shaky media landscape. In some cases, those in the press deem this a good thing; in others, a bad thing but in terms that get the problem all wrong. But virtually all media buy the basic line that something big and transformative isn't just coming, but is in fact already here. Obviously, we can't predict the future, but we can comment on the present. Yes, AI platforms can generate low-level marketing copy, pro forma emails, and shitty corporate art. But progress in these capacities does not, as such, portend a radical advancement into actual human intelligence and creativity. Meanwhile, there's little to no evidence to support the claim that AI, namely large language models like ChatGPT, actually can perform – or even intervene to save time performing – any type of high-level writing craft, journalism, fiction, screenwriting, and a host of “creative” production. So why do we keep hearing otherwise? What purpose does this type of religious-like providential thinking serve? And who stands to benefit from the vague sense of a future of AI-written essays, articles, and scripts, no matter how terrible they may be? In this episode, we explore media's current Inevitability Narrative, namely its credulous warning that ChatGPT is about to do the work of media and entertainment professionals, examining the ways in which this narrative, despite the evidence to the contrary, serves as a constant, implicit threat to workers and a convenient pretext for labor abuses like wage reduction, layoffs, and union-busting. We also review how this media hype works to obscure the very real, banal harms of AI, such as racism, surveillance, over policing and lack of accountability for the powerful. Our guest is Rutgers professor Dr. Lauren M.E. Goodlad.
