Today I want to talk about the power of a Mastermind. I recently went to a new Mastermind organized by a friend of mine called Jared Stevenson. And it was simply a collection of local San Diego marketers, all reasonably successful and involved in different areas within marketing. Some were in press releases, software, funnels and podcasting.
On today’s show we’ve got Robert Burns who is the founder and CEO of a company called prREACH. It’s a highly successful online press release company. Not only do they publish and syndicate press releases to tier one syndication networks.
On today’s show I have a young gentleman called Trevor Page who’s joining me to talk about his new start up which is called Survey-2-Sale. It’s an amazing little app and I’m not going to go into great detail. I’m going to let Trevor explain it to you. Essentially it’s a tool that really increases the sales on any website, right?
Today, I have Austin Neudecker on the show and Austin is an ex-MIT grad. He’s been in Y Combinator, he’s a serial entrepreneur and heavily involved in the San Diego startup scene. He’s recently launched a new product called Membright. And it’s a fascinating piece of software that runs on the mobile platform.
Today I want to give you 10 growth hacks that really work. This collection of growth hacks comes from Thomas Schranz who’s the CEO of a company called Blossom.IO. I’ve taken his ideas and expanded it to make it relative to my audience, but I think these things really, really work.
Today I’m going to be talking about how to name your product or even company. Firstly, don’t go crazy about finding a name, and by that I mean a lot of people go spend weeks on this thing. And they do surveys, they go and run contests and spend lots of money on a branding agency.
Rene Banuelos and Jerry Rocco founders of 22Social recorded live from the Disruptware resort. We’re digging deep into their product as well as revealing some real insights into what they are doing to rapidly grow user acquisition.
A phrase I see everywhere is, “How do I get funding?” and it’s completely the wrong question that anyone should be asking. Instead you should be asking, “How do I get my first customer?” You only need one to get things moving.
Never ever customize your product, always productize. So here’s the situation you have your product out there, you’re an early stage startup and you’re starting to talk to a lot of customers and some really big enterprises are really interested in your solution.
On today’s show, I’m really excited to introduce someone called Al Bsharah who is the founder of a company called Embarke, which is all about email marketing and optimizing open rates and click throughs.
