iati-sadamIn this episode of the Duct Tape Marketing Podcast, I interview Itai Sadan. Iati is the Co-founder and CEO of Duda – a website development platform used by thousands of agencies around the world to build sites for their customers.

Key Takeaway:

Duda started out with a simple idea and goal — to help small businesses boost their traffic with better mobile websites. But as they expanded their focus to responsive web design, they were able to grow into the all-in-one platform they are now.

Today, Duda serves thousands of agencies and has partnered with some of the biggest players in the industry. In this episode, I talk with founder Itai Sadan about the future of Duda and important web design concepts.

Questions I Ask Itai Sadan

  • [0:52] Can you tell me about the name of your company and what inspired it?
  • [5:14] What sets do to apart from that sort of sea of potential website builders?
  • [7:30] If someone is comparing in terms of just apples to apples for the Duda platform itself and its competitors, are there hallmarks of Duda that you think help it stand out?
  • [9:57] Is there an element of Dudas platform that has some of that extendability similarly to how WordPress is open source and allows people to develop around it?
  • [11:33] What are the current trends you are seeing a lot of when it comes to design in some of the newer sites that your agencies are building?
  • [15:59] Are you starting to attract pure ecommerce plays away from the bigger players like Squarespace?
  • [16:54] Course building is another thing that has been growing for many years — is that an area you’re focusing on as well?
  • [18:06] What categorically would you tell somebody you’re working on at Duda?
  • [19:12] If a small business came to you or that was listening to this, is that somebody that you would serve, or would you send them actually on to one of your agency partners?

Marketing Podcast with John Jantsch

In this episode of the Duct Tape Marketing Podcast, I’m doing a solo show covering some ideas that are from my upcoming book, The Ultimate Marketing Engine.

Key Takeaway:

In this episode, I outline how to create a Customer Success Track for your customers.

Topics I Cover:

  • [0:54] Why you should sell the ultimate transformation instead of merely a product or service

Fulfilling Your Dreams At Any Age

Marketing Podcast with Michael Clinton

michael-clintonIn this episode of the Duct Tape Marketing Podcast, I interview Michael Clinton. Michael Clinton is the former president and publishing director of Hearst Magazines and currently serves as special media advisor to the CEO of the Hearst Corporation. He’s also the author of a book we’re going to talk about: ROAR into the Second Half of Your Life – Before It’s Too Late.

Key Takeaway:

We are living in a time when everyone is constantly reassessing what is next for their future. People who have spent years working are now seeing their industry dramatically evolve. At the same time, the post-career population is also going through massive change and dealing with the fact that many of them are not prepared financially, logistically, or emotionally for the next phase of their lives. And while we may want to retire, most of us don’t want to do nothing.

In this episode, Michael Clinton and I discuss concepts from his book upcoming new book ROAR into the Second Hald of Your Life – Before It’s Too Late. We deep dive into how to fulfill your dreams at any age and how to make the second half of your life happy and productive.

Questions I Ask Michael Clinton:

  • [0:53] My first obvious question I have to ask you is – how old are you?
  • [1:09] What is your favorite Hearst publication?
  • [1:53] Was there anything that led you to explore this idea of making the second half of your life something that you would roar into?
  • [5:44]I saw a whole lot of career change during the pandemic – like ‘now’s the time’ sort of energy was released. Do you think that that was always there, but it just got magnified because of the climate of the world?
  • [7:14] What stops people from owning what their next chapter should be?
  • [9:20] ROAR is an acronym for your four-part process – have you found a good, easy way to unpack that for people?
  • [11:03] The reassessment phase I imagine is one of the hardest parts for most people – what happens if you decide that you’ve been on the wrong team?
  • [12:05] What would you say is a common step that folks you talk to make when they are trying to reset things?
  • [13:54] Why are people tuning out to this demographic that we’re talking about?
  • [16:58] Where can people find out more about your work and pick up a copy of ROAR?
