I’m proud to advise aspiring entrepreneurs and work alongside business owners as they grow their companies. If this is you, consider listening to one of my podcasts: Hello Blink Show and Pipeline Meeting.

Hello Blink Show

Hello Blink Show is co-hosted with my friend Shawn Hymel. It’s a practical podcast for technical people who want to work for themselves. We curate interviews with a variety of experts and founders to bring the insights you need for your business.

Goodbye for Now Hello Blink Show

Harris and I are sad to report that we have decided to shut down the Hello Blink Show. We had an incredible time creating the episodes, sharing knowledge about sales and marketing, and meeting amazing new people. We learned a lot from our guests, and we hope you did, too.We discuss some of the things we could have done better if we were to go back in time and redo the show: The name “Hello Blink Show” was a potential SEO miss. While it was a unique name and meant someone would land on our site when searching for that phrase, it did nothing to convey what the show was about. We need to find a way to break out of the core group of listeners who either knew us personally or followed one of us on social media. Find a way to build a community for technical people building or running their own companies. Chris Gammell’s Contextual Electronics Forum attracts a similar audience, and we would not want to compete with his forum. We would want to ramp up our production and marketing efforts to include releasing an episode every week as well as engage people more on social media (e.g. Twitter). Harris is pivoting his career to go from individualized consulting to building a virtual sales assistant. This pivot grew out of his experience developing Intro CRM. He found that even though Intro CRM provided a simplified set of CRM and sales tools, people were not using it. That revelation led to the idea of creating a productized service to literally help people with sales. Shawn is pivoting to focus on embedded machine learning and teaching as opposed to marketing consulting. Part of this focus includes doing research with the hope of being published in academic journals or pursuing a PhD.Hello Blink Show will continue to exist as an archive of episodes, but for the time being, we have no plans to produce future episodes.SponsorWe want to thank Twilio for sponsoring this episode!

We're back! Pipeline Meeting

Harris has three big updates today as we get back into the swing of things this fall. He talks through: Intro CRM's new software product called Lead Rater—built with no-code! A recently introduced new lead qualification and scheduling offering. The ongoing pipeline management offering that started when Harris was solo consulting. We're going to go into more of each of these areas in upcoming episodes, but this welcome back gives you a quick walk through each of them to get you acclimated. You are hearing this all here on the Intro CRM podcast first, so don't be surprised when the updates start rolling out on the website next.
