Digital Marketing Strategy: Mark Cuban Wants You to Call Him


If you have a business problem to solve, wouldn’t you like to talk to another entrepreneur who’s already solved the same problem?

For example, if you’re considering raising capital, wouldn’t it be a huge benefit to talk to other CEOs that have already done it?

What about if you are building a SaaS company. Wouldn’t you like to talk to other SaaS CEOs or CTOs? Of course you would!

In today’s episode of the Bright Ideas podcast, I’m joined by serial entrepreneur Dan Martell, Founder and CEO of, a rapidly growing community of experts who are all willing to take your call to dispense business advice…and yes, you can even call Mark Cuban.

Dan and I had a really interesting conversation and when you listen, you are going to hear us talk about:

  • the two companies he has already built and sold
  • how he got the idea for
  • the first step that he took to discover if there was a market for his idea
  • some of the big mistakes that he made early on
  • how he overcame some of these major challenges
  • advice for other entrepreneurs on dealing with major setbacks
  • how to find and get introductions to the right investors for your company
  • the pros and cons of taking investor money
  • what Dan did when Facebook sent him an email that essentially put his prior company out of business
  • and so much more…

I thoroughly enjoyed my talk with Dan and you will, too!

    Great chat. Thanks to Dan for sharing & you Trent for digging in with good questions. What I appreciated most was the chat about those days of doubt. Everyone has them. If you’re in the ring, you have’em. If you sold a company for 300 million and are on company #2…you have’em.

    Anyone can skip around with a smile when things click along. The down days form the foundation for potential. They flesh you out. Your relationships. The strip you of extra & unnecessary weight. Yet so few people are big enough to talk about them. Props to you both for getting real & staying there long enough to mine those raw times for value.

      Hey Steve,

      Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts. I’m stoked to know that you found this interview so valuable 🙂

  • Hey, Trent, I’ve been listening to your podcasts and reading your stuff for a while. I’d never heard of Dan Martell or Clarity before, nor have I any great interest in going after investment in the way Dan has, but I found this an absolutely fascinating and really useful interview.

    The guy has such a great attitude to life. I liked the bit where he identified his “chaotic” background as useful for getting through the dark moments.

    A valuable entrepreneur who gives back.

    Thank you.
