The Power to Market Better (with T.A. McCann)
July 7, 2014
Hosted by Kelly Riggs
This week, T.A. McCann joins me in the Business LockerRoom to talk marketing, competitive intelligence, and what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur. T.A. McCann is an entrepreneur living and working in Seattle, WA. Did I mention he's an entrepreneur?? He is the founder of Rival IQ, an online tool that we reviewed in the "X's and O's" segment of our show several weeks ago. Rival IQ is focused on active online marketers who want to get ahead, saving time and delivering key insights about your competitors across their key marketing channels. He is also the founder of Gist.com, a social address book sold to Blackberry in February 2011, as well as three other web-based companies. He is currently on the board of Full Contact and Guidant, and also serves as an active advisor to several start-up companies including Creative Live, Zooppa and EveryMove. He is also an active angel investor, with investments in Creative Live, Inside Social, Everpath, Heapsylon, Skedadle as well as Founders Co-op, FG Angels and SKV. He is always looking for new opportunities! Prior to his start-up activity, T.A. was a professional sailor and competed in 2 America’s Cups (won one, lost one) and the Whitbread Round the World race (now called the Volvo Ocean Race). X's and O's (with Miles Austin) Miles has another great tool queued up this week: Zapier. With all the web-based apps out there, how about one that ties them all together? Miles will give us the 411 on a high-powered tool you need to add to your arsenal!
