Rise25’s mission is to connect you with your best referral partners and customers.

We connect you with strategic partnerships through our done for you podcast solution which is the best thing I have done for my business.

Our Done for you Podcast service – We help your company completely run and launch your own podcast and make sure you get ROI from it.

We distribute your show across more than 11 different channels (spotify, google play, itunes, and many more) including a dedicated blog post and social media. You simply show up and talk and we do everything else. Our team has been working with podcasters since 2009. I personally credit podcasting as the single best thing I have done for my business and my life. It has allowed me to connect with the founders/ceo’s of P90x, Atari, Einstein Bagels, Mattel, Rx Bars, and many more. Besides making best friends and finding my business partner, podcasting has led to relationships with countless customers and referral partners.

The most important piece that most are missing is the right strategy and we make sure our clients get ROI so it becomes one of the most valuable parts of your strategic partnerships.

Since this requires a lot of humans (we have operations, developers, writers, audio editors, video editors) to do the work we have limited bandwidth and only want to work with the right company. If using a podcast for strategic partnerships, content marketing, and increasing clients and referrals sounds interesting to you go to and contact us or email support (at)

Tony Grebmeier

Hi there. My name is Tony Grebmeier I’m one of the owners at We’ve been around for over 19 years a company that started in my garage. And I gotta tell you from the very beginning until today, relationships are the keys to the kingdom they are the things that help you most when you have a question. You pick up the phone and you dial somebody and questions were posed like what are some resources you could share? Number one, the importance of taking care of not only your team members, but the clients you get to work with. And then they go out and give referrals and bring business back to you. So one of the great one of the best books that I picked up in the last couple of years Giftology from John Ruhlin, just a great guy, wonderful premise. Also, just the art of making shit happen in this day and age you got to have a guy like a Steve Sims speaking to you. Great book Bluefishing, I recommend you pick it up. And if you’re looking for some additional people to follow out in the market today and i gotta tell you about the guy at Rise25. Jeremy Weisz, one of my dearest friends, always thinking about how to make a relationship better takes just the fantastic notes. And I invited Jeremy along with David Gonzalez from IMP got a great consulting business, and Roland Frasier, digital marketer and just a great guy all around to join me earlier this year on networking, remote 2020 and they came on the show and those were the three people I wanted to kick my show off. They were the people that I think if you’re going to need to know somebody in this industry, you follow those three, you’re going to find the person you are looking for. Once again, my name is Tony Grebmeier and thanks for letting me spend just a few minutes of time with you.

Brian Kurtz

Hi, Brian Kurtz here participating in this InspiredInsider series on customer service and forging better relationships, my company’s Titans Marketing, we are a direct marketing consultancy, but we really educate and train copywriters and marketers and everything direct marketing. My website is And I’ll give you a couple of plugs on some books. And I’ll give you a couple of plugs on some people that epitomize what Jeremy’s trying to do with the series. The books are not as obvious for me, one of them is Give and Take by Adam Grant, which is a book about how you identify givers, takers and matchers matchers are people who want to match you 5050 and it’s a really good book because it gives you the broad overview of what giving is all without. And then I guess The Go-Giver by Bob Burg is another wonderful book, I think Retention by Robert Skrob, which is a book about retaining customers, which is more important than getting them believe it or not, and my book Over Deliver chapter eight customer service and fulfillment our marketing functions and then some people I’d like to just mention Joe Polish. One of the biggest givers I know, great friend for over 20 years. Jeremy Weisz, who is just an amazing giver and really understands what it means to collaborate 100 zero concept that I profess that you give 100% of yourself and don’t expect anything in return, and you end up getting so much more in return. And I’ll leave you with the fact that my book is called Over Deliver, because it not, it’s because you should always over deliver rather than under deliver. You can’t over deliver all the time, but people might expect too because people might expect too much, but you can deliver most of the time.
