Ryan Alford on the Circuit of Success
Join Brett Gilliland and Ryan Alford as they talk about how he started out working as a marketing executive and ended up establishing his own marketing company and podcast. While juggling his time between being a father to four boys and a CEO, Ryan makes sure he gets everything done by having a flexible schedule. In this episode, Ryan explains the importance of shifting to digital marketing and how small companies can get on the same page with the giants. Effective Marketing for Everyone The shift from analog to digital marketing created a platform for small businesses to compete with the big ones; the only question is how. Having a lot of experience as a marketing executive working with big brands, Ryan started his own company, Radical, to provide comprehensive marketing services to their clients and give them the edge. He points out how social media has changed the rules of the game in terms of marketing. Now, everyone can put their business out there without spending millions in marketing, instead of television and radio marketing which are the common platforms back in the day. Ryan’s company uses this advantage for their clients and helps their businesses thrive with big names. Everyone can use social media like Facebook and Instagram as a marketing tool, but Ryan says that running a business also requires consistency. Having regular posts on these platforms helps build a personal brand, creates credibility for the company, and shows the client’s expertise in the field. It also keeps the audience reach growing because the goal is to be out there and be seen, and Ryan’s company works with their client to ensure that this goal is achieved. Marketing Through Podcasting Ryan has been a podcaster for ten years, and his own podcast, The Radcast, started alongside his company. With his podcast’s help, Ryan promoted Radical by having conversations with companies they want to collaborate with. It also became his strategy to create his network of connections – he invited people on The Radcast who could introduce him to prospective clients. He shares that if he cannot make his podcast guests his clients, he can still learn from their conversation, making him up to date with new concepts, businesses, and industries, and more equipped when meeting potential clients. Building Radical’s brand through The Radcast has been successful for Ryan as he says that one out of three clients who hired them for marketing services heard the podcast or were referred by someone listening to the podcast. Ryan hit two birds with one stone because he built Radical’s and The Radcast’s brand simultaneously. While he promotes Radical, his podcast also gained more listeners, making it the fastest-growing marketing podcast in the country, which only took him almost three years. Now, he shares his success with his listeners through his content, guiding them to building their own brands. About Ryan Alford: Ryan Alford is a marketing executive with 20 years of experience who has worked with and guided brands like Verizon, Lexus, Samsung, Toyota, NFL, Firehouse Subs, and more. He is the CEO and founder of Radical, a boutique full-service digital marketing agency in Greenville, South Carolina, built for skill, speed to market, and unmatched capability. Radical provides digital marketing, e-commerce development, Magento development, and other services related to marketing. Ryan is also the host of The Radcast, a marketing and business podcast that features unique marketing perspectives and strategies from industry pioneers and entrepreneurs. His podcast gives practical advice and actionable guidance while also keeping subscribers updated with the latest news in marketing and e-commerce.

Ricky Williams on the Circuit of Success
Ricky was born to humble beginnings in San Diego — The Crib! — whereas a high schooler, he excelled at football, baseball, and track. At a very young age, he had an intuitive sense that life is an adventure and that the highs and lows are therefore expected (and welcomed) as part of the ride. In 1998, he was awarded the 64th Heisman Trophy, at the age of 21. In the middle of his accomplished NFL career, Ricky found cannabis and everything changed. At the time, he became synonymous with the negative stereotype of the lazy stoner. Undeterred by people’s ignorance, and inspired by the desire to understand his fascination with cannabis, Ricky set off to study the origins of cannabis in the foothills of the Himalayans. Ricky now lives the wisdom of what he discovered on his journey, and yes, it includes smoking weed daily. On his journeys, Ricky discovered that cannabis was only one of the thousands of plants humans have used to improve their quality of life. To deepen his knowledge of how herbs are used medicinally, Ricky enrolled in both Ayurvedic (Indian) and Traditional Chinese Medicine study programs. The insights gained from these studies gave Ricky the keys to his own healing. Ricky now shares his healing insights through his herbal formulations, healing bodywork, wellness consultations, and… Astrology! On his journeys, Ricky also discovered astrology, the real healer. 16 years ago, Ricky began a lifelong study and practice of astrology. All eastern healing systems proclaim, that the root of all illness is ignorance of our true nature. Astrology is an excellent map and guide to finding and understanding ourselves. Time booked with Ricky is spent taking a long, deep look in the astrological mirror. The common experience of everyone who talks to Ricky about their chart is that they feel “seen”. Once you see who you REALLY are, you begin to realize your wholeness, your healing. The post Ricky Williams on the Circuit of Success appeared first on The Circuit of Success with Brett Gilliland.
