  1. Great interview Mike!

    Really liked the specific questions like the thing about funny pictures and the reason why he doesn’t have dates on his posts (I have wondered that myself).

    And tip noted about having a network of connections.


  2. Awesome interview!

    I’ve subscribed to Social Triggers and will be trying to get in touch with Derek in the near future.

    Thanks for the resource Mike! I’ll be back in the near future 🙂

  3. Man, Derek always cracks me up. He’s so over the top! However, his stuff works! The post date thing is pretty smart as is the way he thinks through opt-ins. Thanks for having him on the show!

    1. Travis,

      You’re welcome. Derek’s done a great job of building an audience quickly. A big part of his success is how he’s positioned himself.

  4. Great interview Mike. Socialtriggers.com is currently one of my favorite blogs to read so I actually went and searched for this post, I really believe Derek makes some of the most knowledgeable posts about blogging and marketing online out there!
