BJ Murphy 360 Podcast
What is Neuse News? Why did I start Magic Mile Media? Why are we building these businesses? What's driving us?
How often does a 19-year-old check Snapchat, Instagram and Facebook in a day?
I have re-launched the "BJMurphy360 Podcast" with the help of my friend Zac Holcomb. He recently moved his young family to Kinston from Ohio to start Additive America, an industrial grade 3D printing company.
We think we know everything there is to know about [social media]...until you own a business, or until you're trying to promote a non-profit, or until you're trying to get the word out about something else.
For the first time in my life, instead of giving a welcome at church I had the honor of actually bringing the message. Pastor Allen Stocks and his leadership team at Tanglewood Church invited me to speak on Graduation Sunday. My message was entitled "Side to Side" which took some cues from the parable of the talents and the movie "Hitch".
Bryan is the former Editor of the Kinston Free Press, has written for multiple national news outlets, and is an avid sports fan. We discussed sports, politics including Trump and the state of NC, and more. Our Rapid Fire Round and QOTD are worth waiting for the end!
We've done this at least once before and had great feedback, so here's another politically agitating, lighthearted, and fun episode for your viewing and educational pleasure. Algenon and I discuss:
NC Leadership Forum, Guns & Mental Health, Trump & Stormy Daniels, Is POTUS keeping his campaign promises?, Free Trade, $1.3 Trillion, 2018 NC Elections, and 2020 NC Governor's Race.
In today's episode, I'm driving from one client to a friend's house. I just left a client discussing marketing efforts on social media - timeline and advertising. One thing I found myself saying several times is that social media marketing can't replace your product's quality.
Recently, I had the privilege of chatting with the Lenoir County Public Schools Executive Office Professionals. We centered a lot of our conversation on leadership and teamwork. Here is a small clip of that 45-minute talk.
Our country is having a major dialogue on policy as it relates to the school shooting in Florida and I want to weigh in on how we as a nation and state and local government should create sound policy that affects all of us.
By far the most analytical and constructive talk I've given regarding leadership, personal branding, social media, interviewing skills, going all-in on your strengths, and more. After some background on me, my favorite part of the evening was the quesetions from the Campbell University Lundy-Fetterman School Of Business students.
In today's episode of BJ Murphy 360, BJ interviews Algenon Cash about being “Locked In With Algenon Cash.” Algenon is an entrepreneur and civic leader in Winston-Salem, NC. They discuss many topics including challenges that start-ups face and the current political climate for small businesses.
Today on the BJ Murphy 360 show, BJ talks about four tips for entrepreneurs who are on social media. He looked at mistakes he made along the way, things he's read, and stuff he's tried and tested, to come up with these tips that you could consider implementing right this minute.
Facebook’s goal is to make sure that people interact more often with other people and consequently, there will be a limited amount of space left for page posts in the News Feed. Although small businesses and non-profits will be disadvantaged, BJ demonstrates how they can improve their competitive position.
While discussing personal branding with a client, BJ pointed out that a crucial step in the process is to ensure that your target audience gets to know about you and what you have to offer. Understandably, the conversation turned to the effectiveness of email, texting, and Facebook messaging, which begs the question…is email dead?
In today's episode, BJ recounts losing the Mayor's race after serving for the last 8 years. More importantly, he discusses what he did next and how he used the moment to teach his oldest daughter.
Since Facebook is making changes to the News Feed social media marketers will have to adapt. Here are two strategies I'm using to do just that. I'd love to get your feedback on some other best practices.
Here's a quick episode featuring Call-ins from other Anchor.fm podcasters from around the world. We are all having a conversation about the new Facebook News Feed changes and whether that's a good thing or not. If you listen intently, you'll pick up a few nuggets that could help your business. Here's to your success!
Facebook caused a stir this past week with the announcement of an impending change to the News Feed that will affect all pages. This development means that business pages (publishers and brands) will have more pressure on them to create content that generates conversations, to stand a better chance of being seen in News Feeds.
In today's show, BJ Murphy describes a friend who is thinking more about the future than ever before. They had a conversation about how personal branding may be the outlet he needs to capitalize on his experience and skills while maintaining a rewarding job.
Why would followers keep coming back to your Facebook page if all they see is "Buy this" or "We're selling that"? We need to start adding more value to people's experiences with our pages. This will lead to brand ambassadors for your business or cause...much more likely than "buy, buy, buy".
During a meeting with a small business owner today, we discussed cable TV, social media, and YouTube. We also discussed how the market is reacting to changes in technology, and even how our own parents are adapting. That led me to think, "Where will Facebook be in five years and how will we adapt?"
In today's show, I discuss four philosophies that I use on a daily basis to drive engagement for my clients and myself. I tell a few stories and give practical tips to try immediately for increased social media engagement.

After spending a few moments with my girls this morning and as I sat at my desk, the very first thing I did was pay my taxes. Why? It's all reducing liabilities and giving me more freedom to build my business.
Working with a client this morning, I noticed this small error and I want to encourage you to try a new technique the next time you record a video on your smartphone.
