Have You Seen These Episodes?

  • DSL – great show.  Wish you were more PC friendly on the Ecamm Call recorder as I’ve been looking for a tool there.  Will be exploring GoToMeeting’s option.  The 2 education products you rec are Amazing – anyone reading this should grab them as the ROI is very high.

    FYI – the interview you did with Jason over at had some great nuggets, one I implemented days after hearing it.  I asked my email list who they were – and literally received 300 emails in 3 days.  It’s great – and painful like he said as I’ve been getting back to everyone for 2 weeks.
    Keep doing what you’re doing and thanks for being you!

      A – I only use a mac (switched about 5 years ago) so I know NOTHHHINNNGGG about PC’s other than my wife’s sucks and I can’t wait to throw it out the window LOL. GoToMeeting is freaking awesome.

      So great to hear you picked that up (and took action on it) from Jason.

      • Yea – only 150 more emails to send out 🙁  But it’s great for warming everyone up for my product launch – and the Karma is great!

    • Antonio you can try Vodburner for a PC – it’s $9.95 per month and records video (and audio) on a split screen which is cool for interviews like our main man David does

    Hi David,
    Loved the General Overview of the Show. Have utilized several of your Suggestions. Have bought the Video Traffic Academy Series. VERY Informative.
    On another Note: I bought your Book online at Amazon for my Kindle.
    Did I dream it OR Is Your Book on the Shelves in the Bookstores?
    Making It a Great Life! debbie

      Deb -Awesome! Yes, my book came out in hard cover last December 🙂

  • Dave Sachse

    David, thanks for the entertaining response as I appreciate you taking a crack at my question.  I agree with social media creating more urgency for companies to respond because of the public nature, but phone systems will need a major face lift as customers are using more convenient, immediate tools (social media) to reach brands like you did with Charter (I did the same thing with them).

    Also,  Sachse is pronounced (sox-see), hence  @Dsox:twitter .   But it is all good! That’s not the first time my German last name was mispronounced and won’t be the last.

    I can promise (I do not use this word often) you that you will hear my German last name in the future again (aside from being a happy RiseToTheTop viewer) !

    Thanks David!

      D- Got it. Sorry for the botching of the name LOL!
