If you watch this interview closely, you will see I’m like a kid in a candy store literally almost jumping with delight. Three reasons:

  1. Today’s guest, Derek Halpern (creator of Social Triggers), is a freakin’ genius and he can articulate everything he knows extremely well (a skill in itself).
  2. I KNOW you will get massive value and takeaways you can use from this interview.
  3. I know #2 because I learned a bunch as well.

Whew. Derek is an Internet entrepreneur and has mastered the psychology of creating great content, growing traffic and turning traffic into subscribers – not only on his site Social Triggers, but numerous other sites he started before it.

In this interview, he spills the beans and also some great insights about his entrepreneurial journey on the Internet.


About Today’s Guest, Derek Halpern:

Derek HalpernSocial Triggers was founded by Derek Halpern in 2010. Derek is an expert marketer and a serial web entrepreneur.

After building several successful websites in various niches (entertainment, fashion, humor, and more) over the last 5 years, he’s refocused on what he loves most: Building and Marketing Businesses.

You’ll find that his approach to marketing is extremely effective. He developed it over the past few years, and it has helped him build a few wildly popular websites, one of which attracted more than 1,000,000 pageviews in a single day.

More specifically, he uses the perfect blend of data driven marketing (conversion rates, academic research, and personal case studies) and content marketing to get traffic, attract customers, and sell products online.

Derek has been featured or quoted in Entrepreneur, MarketingProfs, Copyblogger, DIYthemes, ProBlogger, and more.
