Episode 175 – From PayPal and Airbnb to ClickMinded SEO with Tommy Griffith
Tommy Griffith has been doing search engine optimization for more than 10 years. He has also previously managed SEO at PayPal and Airbnb, and now runs his own company ClickMinded. The company is a digital marketing training platform for marketers and entrepreneurs. Tommy started ClickMinded as a side project while he was still working full-time at Airbnb. He grew it until it started generating more revenue than his actual annual salary. Two years ago, Tommy quit Airbnb to go full-time into his own business and he also ran into a number of problems in trying to grow ClickMinded from there.
We not only discuss the ins and outs of SEO in an organization, but we also then discuss what it took for him to “burn all the boats” and to launch his own company. Note that this is not one of those kumbaya tales but this is rather a story of hard work!
