The Journey from Startup to Sold Again
In this episode of the Duct Tape Marketing Podcast, I interview Jon Hall, former founder of Grade.us and current founder and CEO of Switchbird.
Grade.us helps businesses thrive in a world where the voice of the customer is everything focusing on helping businesses with reviews.
Switchbird is a software that connects to your business phone and engages voice callers via text to generate more value from every call. A spin-off of PWN Local’s business text messaging product.
Questions I ask Jon Hall:
- You sold Grade.us – how did that happen?
- Grade.us is called a Growth company. Have you ever said I’m in over my head?
- How did it come together – who started the idea of rolling all of the competitors into one entity?
- Was there a plan for you to leave?
- Looking back at your career is there anything you’d do differently?
- How do you use text messaging?
- How do all these free messaging technologies that are becoming mainstream affect your service?
- Is there a generational aspect to this tool?
