Our guest for this episode number 159 is known for meatball sundaes, purple cows and unleashing idea viruses. He's written books on these very topics. I'm not talking about a mad scientist or a performance artist. I'm talking about the legendary author, entrepreneur and teacher, Seth Godin. Seth Godin's reputation precedes him. I can't tell you how excited and honored I am to have had the opportunity to interview him. He's one of the true godfathers of marketing. Seth is a master at cutting through the noise and cutting right to the core of the matter. His provocative ideas have garnered him much attention, but they have also deeply reshaped the way we think about marketing. Seth is the author of nineteen bestselling books including his book, This Is Marketing. He's not just a prolific author, he's a prolific blogger and he runs an awesome podcast, Akimbo. His quote adorns the back cover of my book, The Art of SEO. It meant a lot to me to have the endorsement of someone who is a marketing hero to me. Stay tuned as we go deep and philosophical about marketing and some other mind-blowing topics.

How do you make sure that site is not a dud? My guest on this episode number 158 is serial entrepreneur, Chuck Mullins, who built his first profitable website way back in 1996.

98% of the time when I'm asked to speak on stage about SEO, I'm not allowed to sell from stage. Yet my whole reason for being there is to generate leads that will eventually turn into SEO consulting gigs. You can imagine the dilemma.

Enter Speaking Empire, specifically Dave Vanhoose and Dustin Mathews. Dustin's already been on the show and Dave Vanhoose is our guest in this episode number 157.One example of a technique I learned from Dave was how to give my book away in a powerful way, The Art of SEO, which has a thousand pages. It's a pretty good giveaway but just giving it away is not that impressive. We want to make people run to the stage to get a copy of the book and I learned a cool technique from Dave on how to do that.
