My buddy Clay Hebert was in studio today. (http://clayhebert.com) Clay is a crowdfunding and marketing genius. I was way overdue having him on the show!
It was one of those shows that could have gone for hours! and we talked how to introduce yourself at a conference, the sales process, how to hack Amazon to get great ideas for products and books, and tons more!
Thank him on the Twitter @clayhebert
Different is better than better
Well known for mastering the 6-word intro and crowdfunding, Clay Hebert shares with us his incredible marketing insights. He defines psychographics and explains why they're more important than demographics, then goes on to explain the primary problem with influencer marketing. On top of that, he shares a couple of his favorite books with us and offers a podcast suggestion and wisdom from previous guest Tucker Max.
