JJ and April. I drove 15+ hours this weekend to/from a wedding and spent easily 13 of the 15 hours binging on MMS. You both are amazing at what you do and you inspired me to take immediate action on exploring a path forward as a Certified Guide 😃

…but I just can’t justify the time it takes to listen to it. The “hero maker” term is positively cringeworthy, for one. And beyond that, the pace is so drawn out (+ ads, long intros) that I become frustrated quickly.

Cool guests & a ton of valuable insights!

Episode 149 1/26/2024 has been so insightful for me specifically. Although all of the other episodes are jam packed with tips and information, I want to highlight that this episode specifically means a lot to me. I am a new yoga instructor and I’ve been trying to find fresh ways to market my...Read full review »

I’ll keep on listening forever, basically, and i recommend this podcast to anyone who’s got a small business and is...Read full review »

I love all the practical, actionable takeaways in every episode. It’s always broken down in simple ways to make big impact for your biz. Thank you so much for always bringing it!

Maybe this kinda of content is easy to search for. However, Dr. JJ’s knowledgeable storytelling and the experienced entrepreneurs make you ponder what your business has to figure out and move on to the action.

I love the happy tone of this podcast. The hosts know their marketing and make it simple for us. Thanks a lot for this great show
Jackmunoz via Apple Podcasts · Colombia · 07/13/23
The content is great + the Business Made Simple Podcast is great. However, I’ve tried listening to a few episodes and I find the personalities on the show come off very superficial. I feel like a child and not like a business owner during the episodes and so for that reason, I unsubscribed.

I spent 6:50 minutes listening to some adverts, music and some slogans! The introduction is too slow & also longer than necessary. Some words were repeatedly used maybe intentionally (idk) but this way some listeners will lose interest if you don’t catch their attention since the first 2...Read full review »

This is what I’ve searched long and hard for. How to apply the Storybrand framework to those in the arts. 5 Stars, it makes so much more sense now!
paperarmadillos via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/28/23
Easy-to listen to, funny and a great podcast. One of the best ever. I can’t believe I finally had to listen to storybrand to really understand marketing! If you’re interested in marketing or if you’re a professional you still should listen to this weekly. To the storybrand team, keep giving more...Read full review »

There are some solid points to be gained from listening to this podcast. But the term “hero maker” makes it absolutely unlistenable. So bad. I understand what you’re trying to do with it. But please stop. It’s so bad.
Russel Branson via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/31/23
Calling me ‘hero maker’ :D It’s like nails on a chalkboard. Otherwise, pretty interesting info! Slightly cringe motivational-speaker vibes, but solid marketing training.
BlakeKahan via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/15/23
J.J. and April are great hosts who make even the non-so-fun marketing topics fun and approachable (and will have you laughing along with them). The whole flipping the usual marketing script to make it all about your customer's story makes so much sense and makes marketing so much easier! I...Read full review »

I love hopping on the treadmill and popping Dr. J.J. and April into my earbuds. As a StoryBrand Guide and fellow entrepreneur I find the conversations actionable and insightful. Even though I have access to the StoryBrand community of guides everyday, I still learn and get new ideas from these...Read full review »

The hosts are excellent, highly knowledgeable, and professional. There is a wealth of invaluable tips for users. My only request is to also provide examples of enterprise B2B businesses, particularly for technology companies that offer solutions through their software products. Thanks.
Iphone Lover 2008 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/18/23
StoryBrand is a phenomenal book, and his Business Made Simple podcast is fun to listen to. I’ve tried several episodes of this show and I cannot relate to the “guides” hosting this podcast. I really don’t find them relatable, and can’t connect with them for where I am at in my entrepreneurial...Read full review »

I tried to listen to a couple of episodes and it’s really just a marketing tool for their story brand framework. I think it has great concepts and it can benefit a lot of people, but it’s also trying to recruit you in to do their framework. I heard the word “framework” almost 20-25 times a...Read full review »

This series of podcasts about the StoryBrand framework and their simple and [cost] effektive sales funnel is really great either you want to craft your own collateral or if you want to qualify yourself before you outsource the process.

For about a month, I’ve been working on and off on my website. I found myself wanting to communicate too much. I recognized this but didn’t know how to fix it. Then I heard a podcast where J.J. was a guest. The content resonated with me, so I gave this podcast a chance. I’m only 3 episodes in but...Read full review »

We’ll done to JJ, April and the team for bringing the MMS podcast to the world. Each episode is like a mini masterclass on not only the storybrand framework but just marketing and messaging in general. Practical, insightful and fun.
