EP63: Sacha Greif – how things get popular
Sacha Greif joined me again for a chat on how he marketed Discover Meteor, and why certain blog posts get popular.
“I’ve always believed that people really respond to quality content.” – Sacha Greif
“You can tell when someone has written something with no research; getting quality data, screenshots, and diagrams really helps.” – Sacha Greif
“There’s a direct relationship between the amount of time I put into a blog post, and how popular it is” – Sacha Greif
“People respond to books: they don’t want to have to look through 20 blog posts.” – Sacha Greif
“I did something I shouldn’t have done – and I put all my eggs in one basket.” – Sacha Greif
“My first book is really short: it’s like 40 pages. I didn’t spend 6 months in a cave building it.” – Sacha Greif
