Ryan Deiss

Ryan Deiss

Ryan Deiss is regarded as one of the world’s top online marketers. He stumbled into the world of online marketing by accident while studying Finance at the University of Texas at Austin.

Like most of us, he wanted to make money. And the world wide web was the wild west welcoming all opportunitists.

Ryan started with an e-book on how to make baby food. He did not create this e-book for himself but for client..who failed to pay for the services. So he kept the e-book and put it up for sale for 14.95…and started to make 2-3 sales each day.

Today he owns DigitalMarketer; the go-to site for all things about online marketing. What you might not know is that the parent company that owns DigitalMarketer has over 40 websites in its portfolio with over 10 million subscribers. These sites target different audiences in different niches. So Ryan has reach as well as a varied audience.

Why is he doing so well?

Mr. Deiss always focuses on value. As he told Forbes, the trick is to” find a goose that lays golden eggs then sell the eggs, not the goose”. His roadmap for success as an online business is simple, build a niche, deliver value and invite feedback.

Or it only sounds simple..

Another tactic he has employed when venturing into new opportunities is to focus on enterprises that earn recurrent and sustainable income. Ryan lists it as something he would do more of if the calendar was rolled back to the early 2000s.

While Ryan is known as a successful entrepreneur and internet marketer, he is also an accomplished author and hosts the highly respected annual Traffic and Conversion Summit, which is one of the top conferences you can ever attend worldwide.

I’ve never attended this conference, but I sure plan to.

Despite being a serial entrepreneur and tireless worker, Ryan Deiss is a family man with four children and a wife whom he lauds as the reason for his success.

Introduction from Ryan’s website

Ryan is also a highly sought after speaker and consultant whose work has impacted over 200,000 businesses in 68 different countries. Connect with Ryan on Twitter.

<- Ok, as this is fairly short, I will add more from his LinkedIn profile:

Ryan Deiss has been called one of the world’s leading digital marketers by Shark Tank star, Daymond John. A best selling author, founder of multiple companies collectively employing hundreds around the globe, and one of the most dynamic speakers on marketing in the United States today, he is undeniably a recognized expert on the digital era.

Ryan’s entrepreneurial endeavors began while he was a college student at the University of Texas at Austin, launching his first very first website and generating his very first sale from his freshman dorm room. By the time he graduated, this one online property had ballooned into 500, and a hobby had grown into a real business.

Fast forward to the present day, Ryan is the Founder and CEO of DigitalMarketer.com and Founder and Managing Partner of NativeCommerce.com, a digital media and ecommerce group that owns dozens properties including: DIYReady.com, MakeupTutorials.com, SurvivalLife.com and Sewing.com…just to name a few.

His company, DigitalMarketer, is the leading provider of digital marketing training and certifications. Its community has over 15,000 paid members, and over a half a million subscribers. The company is on a mission to double the size of 10 thousand businesses by 2020.

He is also a sought after speaker who has shared the stage with top business leaders and celebrities like William Shatner, Gary Vaynerchuk, Tim Ferris, Daymond John and Dave Ramsey.

Most importantly, Ryan is a proud dad of 4 children, and husband to Emily (to whom he gives all the credit for everything he has ever done).
