On this episode of Proposify BizChat, I talk with web developer and entrepreneur Barry O’Kane, who runs a company out of Scotland called Endzone Software. Barry has been in the web development industry since 1999, and was a partner with an agency for 12 years before deciding to open his own agency three years ago. As a development specialist, Barry helps creative agencies handle their technical issues and support challenges. If you’re an agency selling retainers to clients, but are still figuring out how to keep them coming back year after year, this Biz Chat is for you.
On this episode of Proposify BizChat, I talk with Andrew Breen, a Google AdWords genius who lives and breathes analytics, and he also happens to be a good friend of mine. Andrew owns a company called Outshine, a consultancy that helps SaaS companies around the world build revenue through analytics, advertising, and automation. Here at Proposify, we’ve hired Andrew and his team at Outshine in the past, and they’ve delivered really great results. Andrew’s been in the AdWords game a long time, and he’s got lots of valuable insights to share. If you’re somewhat familiar with AdWords but don’t consider yourself a master, you’ll get a lot out of this show.
On this episode of Proposify BizChat, I talk with entrepreneur, author, and public speaker, Daniel DiPiazza.

He now runs Rich20Something and recently released his first book, “Rich20Something: Ditch Your Average Job, Start an Epic Business and Score the Life You Want.”
On this episode of Proposify BizChat, I talk with digital marketing consultant and expert, Mike McGrail. Mike cut his teeth in the industry after landing a job post-university that varied between traditional and digital marketing. He’s watched digital marketing grow from infancy to industry-standard, and made the decision early on to learn as much as he can about it. His expertise in social media marketing has helped his clients build more meaningful relationships with their customers, and evolve with digital changes and trends. Mike now runs Velocity Digital, a digital marketing consultancy that he started in Scotland in 2012.
On this episode of Proposify Biz Chat, I interview digital marketer, strategist, and entrepreneur, Ross Simmonds. Ross is also a content and distribution KING, reaching over a million people through his engaging and valuable content. Ross launched his first business in high school selling do-rags. He bought them at $1.50 and sold them for $10 - pretty good margins for a teenager! Since his do-rag days, Ross has launched several other businesses, and now runs a successful content marketing consultancy, an eCommerce store for entrepreneurs called Hustle + Grind, and is the founder of content marketing software startup, Crate.
In this episode of Proposify Biz Chat, I interview Dan Martell. Dan is a serial entrepreneur, a speaker, an angel investor, and a mentor to agency owners and SaaS entrepreneurs who are looking to seriously scale their businesses. You probably think, “Wow, that guy sounds like he’s had a successful life.” But, Dan didn’t start out that way - he had a really rough time in his childhood, and when I say rough I mean foster homes, jail, rehab, and too many close calls to count. Dan is a great example of someone who had a fire in him; it just needed to be focused on the right burn. And Dan’s focus ended up being on building very successful businesses.
This week on the Proposify Biz Chat, I interview Lindsey Anderson, AKA One-Click Lindsey. Lindsey is a web strategy expert who works with small businesses to help them grow.
A natural entrepreneur since her days at the lemonade stand, Lindsey is the founder of two businesses, Web Impakt, a web development agency; and trafficandleads.com, where she and her team work with companies to grow web traffic that converts into leads, and then convert those leads in paying customers.
This week on Proposify Biz Chat, I interview Brent Weaver, founder and CEO at uGurus, a company that helps digital agency owners to significantly grow their businesses and in turn, take back their lives. Brent knows what he’s talking about - as a former web development agency owner, he’s pitched over a thousand web projects. He learned through the business school of hard knocks what works and what doesn’t when it comes to running a successful agency - pitching, hiring, financing - and now he’s sharing that knowledge with other entrepreneurs through uGurus.
This week on Proposify Biz Chat, I interview Nicholas Kusmich, the world’s leading authority on Facebook advertising. And how do you get that title? When you get 30,973% ROI on Facebook ads. Yes, 30,973%.
I’ve also seen Nicholas speak and he is legitimately one of the best speakers I’ve ever seen; he brought me to tears, he’s that compelling. Nicholas is also the author of the newly published book, "Give: The Ultimate Guide To Using Facebook Advertising to Generate More Leads, More Clients, and Massive ROI.”
This week on proposify Biz Chat, I interview Tim Kitchen, the UK’s best selling digital marketing author and founder of Exposure Ninja, a 60-person digital marketing agency that works with clients from around the world. Tim, originally an aspiring rock star, has a very cool story about how he gained authority in the digital marketing world by writing a book without any previous experience, and how that book then spawned his agency.
