My Life is My Work! Interview with Phil Turner

I am happy to Introduce Phil Turner to the readers of WebmaisterPro. Well-known successful online entrepreneur, valued member of our social network, a person who can always share some very useful tips. Phil, would you introduce yourself with few sentences? Hi, I’m an English guy, an ex-teacher, who has ideas by the ton. I am an optimist and like to believe that most people are basically good. What drives your creativity? I believe we have duties to humanity regarding knowledge. We have to learn as much as we can handle and we have to pass that on before we die to as many people as possible. Each person has a unique body of knowledge built up from their unique set of life experiences. The human race benefits from that knowledge and advances, but you need to pass it on or the knowledge dies with you. What’s more, you have to pass it on to at least one person who will pass it on before they die, too. The only way to increase the probability of your knowledge continuing forever is to pass it on to hundreds of thousands of people, so that a few of them will incorporate your knowledge into their...

Interview with Daniel Duckworth - Founder of ServiceCrowd

I am happy to introduce Daniel Duckworth the founder and CEO at ServiceCrowd AU. A great person, mastermind behind unique web project, that I believe every web professional need to check. Daniel, would you introduce yourself with few sentences? I'm the founder of ServiceCrowd, formerly DesignQuotes. We are a marketplace for finding local services, getting introduced to experts and easily getting quotes from local service providers. Our goal is to help people find the right local service and help businesses get more sales leads. At how many companies you are involved at the moment? I'm focused 100% on ServiceCrowd, but we have a few side projects that tie back into the main service. For example I've just recently started a website called CrowdPress (https://crowdpress.com.au/) where the content is focused on curating new and exciting material from great organisations. The purpose is to build up a following based on interests. Our main website's content (https://servicecrowd.com.au) tends to focus much more on guides for buyers which is very specific and usually not very buzz worthy. I'm also about to launch something called ServiceCrowd Ask. Since we have lots of experts that offer services, we are creating a way for people to submit questions online...

Interview with David Leonhardt - The Happy Guy

I am happy to introduce David Leonhardt a.k.a.The Happy Guy Marketing - journalist, writer, blogger, social media marketer, etc... Successful professional, well recognized in his field, in addition good friend of WebmaisterPro.   David, would you introduce yourself with few sentences?   My background is in public affairs - media relations and consumer advocacy - but I've been a freelance writer and promoter for the past decade. I run The Happy Guy Marketing.   Dave, without stepping into your personal space, would you share what drives your creativity?   Electricity, of a sort... What I mean is, when I can put ideas together, I feel a charge and I get motivated and passionate. That applies equally when planning an article or blog post, or when I am planning a promotional campaign. Sort of like Dr. Who, just not as cocky.   Does it require courage to be article writer, blogger and Internet marketer?   It takes courage or stupidity or both to take a leap of faith and jump out on your own. The fact is that when I did it, my goal was actually to become a motivational speaker. I had my book and I had become a DTM (the...

The mastermind of GrowMap.com   Gail, would you introduce yourself with few sentences?   My goal is to get serious bloggers collaborating and sharing skills so that they can use them to benefit small businesses.You may want to watch these videos to have a clearer idea what I do.   Excellent, may be step a bit into your personal space? What drives your creativity?   A quest for knowledge and understanding that I can then simplify and explain to others. Remember the scene in the movie with the robot that comes alive? It is rifling through the library books reading them all? That is how I feel (but of course now we have the Internet).   How did you started blogging? And how many web projects do you run/own? Marty Weintraub at Aimclear.com set up my first blog so I would share what I knew about AdWords and PPC (pay per click). When I quit managing AdWords accounts for small businesses I started GrowMap. I have other blogs with partners which are not very active, but...

Although I earn a good living at my day job, my websites generate an excellent supplemental income on my free time. How did you start blogging? What were your inspiration and your goal as beginner blogger?   I started blogging for my employers back when blogging was very new (around 2000) so I don't consider myself a beginner blogger; in fact, I consider myself one of the pioneers.

I currently run five different sites, each in a different niche and each...

When I'm in Rochester I exercise weekly, play guitar and enjoy sailing.  Would you share with our readers at which companies you are involved currently? HubShout is the 2nd company I've co-founded.
