285 – The Fundamentals Of Compound Marketing With Dan Norris

Accelerate Sales Podcast

If you’re going to do some kind of paid marketing, you better pick one and be good at it. But what if you weren’t good at any of those things? This is where compound marketing comes in – a concept that serial entrepreneur and bestselling author Dan Norris gradually built after many years of simply doing what he thought was fun and he was reasonably good at. After selling multiple businesses, Dan finally reflected on the unique components of what he was doing and came up with content, community, brand, and story. In this conversation with Paul Higgins, Dan explains his approach in each of these fundamental components. He argues that going organic is still the best way to grow a business rather than spending all your time and money on short-term strategies. You may disagree with some of what Dan has to say here, but his results definitely speak for themselves!

Dan Norris - Beer, Branding, And Compound Marketing

Hustle & Flowchart - Entrepreneur's Wisdom

We have Dan Norris on the show today, and he’s someone who has accomplished quite a lot, with a somewhat different approach to marketing. He focuses on four core pillars: branding, community, storytelling, and content marketing. In this episode, we do a deep dive into all four of those. After founding WP Curve, which was subsequently sold to GoDaddy, Dan started a new venture, Black Hops Brewing in Australia. You’ll hear Dan discuss how he has created one of the biggest and well-known brands in his country (voted the #1`craft brewery in Australia), all with basically no ad spend.  There’s a similar thread in the way he’s marketed both his WP Curve brand and his craft beer brand, and it all comes down to his concept of Compound Marketing, which is also the basis behind his new book. When you’re done, check out our conversation with Lisa Cherney for more content strategies and how to be real to your audience even if that means being putting off others, and get some advice from Anthony Constantino, who also runs a super fun company that really resonates with his customers. “It helps to take this approach where you’ve got these things compounding behind the scenes without you necessarily having to do a whole lot. I see our competitors buying billboards and doing paid ads and I’m glad we don’t have to do all that.” - Dan Norris Some Topics We Discussed Include: Taking a bath in beer? (it does wonders for your hair) How to promote a unique beer so that it sells out Why too much advertising can actually a bad thing Drink Dan’s brew and tag us and Dan!

The Power of Compound Marketing with Dan Norris

The Story Engine Podcast

On today’s episode, I am talking with Dan Norris.  Dan is the kung fu master that taught me a lot of the foundational writing, creation, and storytelling skills that are the foundation for this podcast, my books, and a lot of the work I do.  It is very exciting to have him on the show.  Dan continues to be a prolific creator at WP Curve and we get to hear about his WP Curve origin story and life since the startup.  He is still applying many of the same marketing strategies he used to grow the startup in many different areas with lots of different successes.   Dan Norris is a serial entrepreneur, award-winning content marketer, international speaker, and the author of 5 (soon to be 6) number 1 Amazon best-selling business books. In June 2013 after failing at entrepreneurship for 7 years, he founded wpcurve.com, a worldwide team of WordPress developers, providing unlimited small fixes and support, 24 / 7 for a low monthly fee. After becoming profitable in 23 days, WP Curve grew to a team of 40, 850+ customers and passed an annual run rate of over $1m AUD within 2 years and a year later was sold to GoDaddy.  Dan currently works full time as the Co-founder and CEO of one of Australia’s fastest-growing craft beer breweries, Black Hops Brewing. In 2015 Black Hops brewed the world’s first beer for the biggest entertainment franchise on earth, Call of Duty. In 2018 Black Hops was voted Australia’s Champion Small Brewery at the AIBA awards, Australia’s number 1 beer competition.  In This Episode: Our stories can be very powerful for our business. Learning these stories over time and how to frame them can shape your business and your outcome in huge ways.  It is important to do things that compound in value as opposed to a more transactional approach.  He does things that compound over time and build up things that are very hard for competitors to replicate.     The people who are successful are making a lot of stuff.  If you are not actively creating a lot of things, that is definitely the place to start.  You have to create something that gets traction.   And so much more!
