Welcome to episode #479 of Six Pixels Of Separation - The Mirum Podcast. The challenge with any business (the ones that are digital... and the ones that are not) is getting a consumer to not only pay attention, but to become a customer. Even then, getting someone to buy from you once is not the same as getting them to buy from you frequently. It's a busy world, and the push for a consumer to try something new is everywhere. Gabriel Weinberg is the founder and CEO of DuckDuckGo. If you think you're in a competitive business, DuckDuckGo is a search engine that doesn't track you, but it's hard to compete in a Google world. Before entering the search world, Weinberg was the cofounder of Opobox, which was sold for $10 million. Now, a major book publisher is releasing a newer version of the book he co-authored titled, Traction - How Any Startup Can Achieve Explosive Customer Growth. Originally, he self-published the first edition of Traction, and - using techniques from the book - managed to sell over 35,000 copies across three printings, now with 160+ 5-star Amazon reviews. Enjoy the conversation...
