Guy Kawasaki – the Evangelist Who Heard the Apple Angels Singing

He was one of the lucky few; one of the founding fathers of Apple, getting a job straight out of college through his roomie Mike Boich. Guy Kawasaki credits his Apple experience with many great things, but mostly for the chance to work for one of the world’s most exciting companies and carve out a career as one of the first true digital pioneers. If you want to make your mark and you’re on the lookout for media jobs, Kawasaki’s lead is one you might want to follow. Currently Kawasaki, who was born in Hawaii, is founder of Garage Technology Ventures and co-founder of Alltop.com, an online magazine rack giving users easy access to the web’s most popular topics, but he wasn’t always at the forefront of online innovation. From Honolulu to Silicon Valley Born in 1954 in one of the tougher neighbourhoods of Honolulu, Guy Kawasaki attended Iolani School, which he states gave him a ‘fantastic and formative education’. He has particularly fond memories of his English teacher who, he believes, would have been shocked to learn that he’s written 10 books. After graduating Iolani in 1972, Kawasaki made the journey to Stanford where he graduated with a major…

Kris Jones – the Man Who Believes in Having a Good Time at Work

Kris Jones is a rare breed. He’s been active in Internet marketing both as an arbitrager and affiliate marketing whizz since the early days of the web. He’s been there and done that, and now he’s ready to share his secrets. If you’re in the market for media jobs you’d be wise to listen. Kris graduated from Pennsylvania State University and gained a Master of Science from Villanova University as as well a Juris Doctorate from Albany Law School. He’s previously  founded Internet marketing agency PepperJam, worked for GSI Commerce when PepperJam was acquired by them, and he spent time working in the office of Congressman Paul E Kanjorski. After raising seed money from search arbitrage and PPC arbitrage, Jones went on to become the founder of one of the fastest-growing companies in the US. He admits his methods were a little unusual though: “My focus was on scale. So some search arbitragers will say to focus on one or two or three different merchants and just blow out as many keyword lists and everything as you can. “My focus was a little bit different. I tried to make $50-$100 profit a month with as many merchants as you could…

Rhohit Barghava – Cutting Through the Spin to Deliver ‘Likeonomics’

Mention public relations or marketing to most people and you’ll be greeted with rolled eyes and accusations of spin and untruths, however Internet marketing guru Rohit Barghava has positioned himself as the man to cut through the spin and give us ‘Likeonomics’ instead. Anyone looking for media jobs should certainly make sure they have the likeability factor before heading to those interviews, according to Barghava. Bhargava is an alumni of George Mason University and has previously worked at Ogilvy, Leo Burnett Australia and Dimension Data (formerly Com Tech). He currently teaches marketing at Georgetown University. As a proud exponent of putting humanity back into business, Barghava cites himself as a ‘non-obvious’ marketing expert with two best-selling books under his belt. Personality Not Included introduced readers to the fact that more companies needed to show that they had a human side in order to garner the trust of their stakeholders, while Likeonomics dealt with how likeability is the key to business success. The book was an Amazon best seller in six categories and the fourth biggest selling business book in the US in the month of launch (May, 2012). He has over 1000 articles on all aspects of online and offline…
