Episode Summary

How can a product or service get adopted so well that it acquires a cult following? The secret is a different, more hands-on kind of marketing: community-building. And that community you build can be your and your business’ most significant asset.

“If you build a community, you won’t be a commodity!” Says Health Coach Academy’s guest, Lloyed Lobo, who drills down the importance of building a community around you and your brand. An entrepreneur, podcast host, and solid community-builder, Lloyed has also written a book on the role of community in turning obscure ideas into enduring companies.
