Danny Iny and awovi I’ve very excited to bring you this very short but packed interview with Danny Iny of Firepole marketing.

Danny Iny has been an entrepreneur for longer than his entire adult life. He quit school when he was fifteen to start his first business, and has been doing it ever since. Along the way he ran the Montreal Marathon and got an MBA. He’s also worked with companies of all sizes, from the very huge (Nokia, Google) to small businesses and entrepreneurs who are just getting started.
These days, he is a prolific blogger and marketing educator here at Firepole Marketing. He’s excited to be the co-author – with Guy Kawasaki, Brian Clark, Mitch Joel, and a lot of other people you’d probably recognize – of a book called Engagement from Scratch! How super-community builders create a loyal audience, and how you can do the same!

    This is a great podcast (like the music at the beginning btw :). Danny is as always to the point and generous with sharing his experiences in business good & bad. The part about not seeing blogging as an extra but an integral part of your whole business strategy is so true. Blogging consistently is a struggle for many of us business owners but it’ll get better as long as we keep on applying ourselves. Dashing off to write a blog…

    Thanks for commenting Denise. Just having fun with the beats. The intro music is indigenous to my people :). In terms of blogging or the wider context of content marketing, you need to find a medium of marketing that you find relatively easy compared to the others so you can stick to it. There are so many ways of engaging with people these days but you need your core strategy to be one that works for YOU.
