#47 How to Build an Authentic Community That Gets Business Results with Brian Fanzo (Part I)

Brian Fanzo - How to Build an Authentic Community That Gets Business Results (Part I)

Brian Fanzo is a keynote speaker who motivates and educates businesses on how to leverage emerging technologies and digital marketing to stand out from the noise and reach the millennial and Gen Z consumers. He has spoken at some of the world’s largest events including SXSW, Social Media Marketing World, and CES.

He has a diverse background from working for the Department of Defense in cyber security to a technology evangelist at a booming cloud computing startup and is currently the founder of iSocialFanz, which has helped launch digital and influencer strategies with some of the world’s most iconic brands from Adobe to IBM, UFC, Applebee’s, and more. Also, he hosts two podcasts and is a dad to three girls.

I’ve personally heard many nice things about Brian from at least four different guests I’ve had on the show, so this has been long overdue. 

Brian delivered so much value on this episode that I decided to break it into a Two Parter. It was just a fun convo!

In Part 1, we cover:

  • How Brian went from cyber security at the DOD to consulting brands on social media & influencer marketing
  • What businesses are missing when it comes to building community
  • Content creation & automation. Also, how Brian produces 2 podcasts and posts content on multiple platforms without a team (& more!)
