Interview with Jack Humphrey

Posted By Darren Rowse 12th of August 2008 Pro Blogger Interviews 0 Comments

This morning I got on the phone with internet marketer Jack Humphrey as part of his webside chats series of interviews. It was an enjoyable 45 minutes which you can listen into here:

Jack also has some other great interviews in his series – check them out here.

  • I’m just listening to this now and just at the bit about ‘post frequency’. Loving the tips, especially about swapping posts and looking for those that post regularly.

  • “I don’t know how many times I used Darren as an example” wow… it must be nice to hear someone say those words about you :0)

    Very informative interview.

    Thank you

  • I really enjoyed this interview Darren. Listening to a voice really ads to a blog Darren. I’ve been running those podcasts that I won from your site, by First Blog Media, in my sidebar, and I think the readers are enjoying it.

    Actually, I think I’ll do a poll or something to find out just how much enjoyment is coming out of it.

    Perhaps you can get a resource post for us, where you list all the interviews you’ve done? Or an easy way to find them. =)

  • Thanks for sharing this, I’ll go and check it out

  • I have to disagree that tech blogs are all about the two-paragraph ten minute post. Some technology blogs have a mixture of posts, and include some articles that do require a lot of research.

    I’m sure you didn’t mean it to be a blanket statement, but as I currently work on three tech-related blogs, I thought I’d raise the point. :)

  • Great interview Darren! I really appreciate your honesty about your life and your journey over the last 6 years or so. I’m on the other end of the spectrum right now and it is encouraging to hear from someone who has accomplished so much in an area that is important to me. God bless all that lies ahead for you.

  • Great interview.
    Lots of excellent points. My keeper is:
    “Be an innovator – create your own new thing and not another me-too”.

    And, I agree with the idea that luck needs to be facilitated. Being in the right place at the right time is only possible if you go places and do things. Duplicating what others have already done is never going to lead to that.


  • I also have to disagree that technology blogs are all about two paragraph 10 minute posts. there are some like this but not all of them. I’m not going to advertise my technology blog on here that has 20,000 subscribers because who wants to be put in this category. there are many technology blogs that go in great detail about things and those are the blogs that end up on web sites like the Digg.

  • Informative!

    Your interviews are like adding gravy to the blog…

    Congratulations on breaking the 1M mark on DPS!

  • Hi Darren,

    I know podcast and videocasta are great but providing a transcript is the best IMHO.

    OffTopic Questions:

    1) In Twitter how do I respond to a Tweet e.g. you write something in Twitter and I want to reply.
    2) They should invent a transcript software for webcasts and podcasts.


  • Andy Merrett and Ultimate Blogging Experiment – yes you’re right, definitely didn’t mean for that to become a blanket statement for all tech blogs – was thinking mainly of engadget and gizmodo

    Infonote – it’s one of those things that I guess a blogger needs to toss up. For me I produce 20-30 text based posts for every video/audio one so figure that it’s less important for me to make a transcript of them. If I had the time or resources I’d probably do it but unfortunately I don’t.
