Today for our 51st episode, we will talk with Duane Brown, Paid media expert and founder of Take some Risk.
My introduction to Duane was a totally organic event that came together with remarkable efficiency. Duane went to speak at the Big Digital conference in Adelaide, where he was a guest of our friend Sha Menz from episode 46.
While listening to that episode, AJ Wilcox from episode 44 heard Duane’s name and sent him a tweet about the podcast. Within a few minutes I had a new guest booked. I’m happy when things work out that way!
Duane is one of those avatars that I have seen around for years in PPC Chat, the Moz community and all over the place, really, and I have been wanting to hear his story for a while now. This was the perfect opportunity.
Duane has worked in Internet marketing all over the world, traveled to 40 countries, and puts a lot of passion into every project that he touches.
It was great to hear about all of the experiences that brought Duane into his current foray into entrepreneurship, and I know you will enjoy it too.
