Neil Patel Interview

1. How you are managing so many organizations at a time with great turnover?

Neil: I have been managing and running companies from an early age so I have become quite savvy at finding the best employees and tactics to grow a business. I also like to keep things lean and I track everything -- metrics are important if you want to grow and thrive as a company.

2. While starting any new venture, how you are selecting your partner/co-founder. Also, tell us little about how one should go ahead to start their company.

Neil: One of my longest running partners is, Hiten Shah, It wasn't hard joining forces with him because he has the same growth mindset, are self-motivated and have been in the business. It also helps that he is my brother in law :)

When finding the right partner make sure that you find someone who compliments your talents and isn't afraid to tell you when you're wrong. Also, find someone who is level headed and willing to compromise.

3. You are also an angel investor. What you look first in a start-up before funding.

Neil: I look at a number of things -- one of the most important metrics I focus on is growth. Have they shown marked growth from the time of their founding to the time I analyze them? Also, I look at the pieces in place organizationally. Having a great company culture and chemistry is important.

4. I am a consistent follower of your blogs and marketing tips. How you are managing to write almost around 2k+ words articles with great images and infographics.

Neil: Practice and habit. I have been writing for years now -- it's all just second nature at a certain point. I also, read a ton so I have a lot of knowledge and information at my fingertips ;)

5. Neil, you have seen many ups and down in your journey during your initial days. According to you why any business fails?

Neil: I have seen a ton of ups and downs -- it's a natural part of success. I look at failure as a stepping stone to success. It shows you what you have to do to get to the next level. I think businesses fail because failure to execute. If you can't move fast you won't win.

6. How to deal with the competition and go ahead?

Neil: I always do my research -- sometimes you'll find that your competition really isn't your "competition" . They may compliment your product and provide valuable insights into how you can grow as well. The key is to just build what your customers want as fast as possible.

7. What are some content marketing strategies that people can implement today?

Neil: Just start blogging and writing about topics that you are passionate about. The first step is to get started -- it seems simple but a lot of people get caught overthinking it. Once you start writing make sure you are consistent. If you don't publish content on a regular basis, your content marketing efforts won't provide the results you want.

8. You have worked with many fortune 500 companies and have generated an excellent result. What are the challenges you see while working with those big companies?

Neil: I actually like working with them a lot because they tend to have fewer barriers. By barriers I mean their budget constraints aren't as limited so it's easier to experiment and find the right formula for success. The biggest challenge is that they tend to move slow even though they want results fast.

9. Anything special you would like to mention for your lac of followers (of course including me) about how they should plan in internet world to get success ☺

Neil: Just work hard and don't look back. That's how I got to where I am now ;)

Thank you so much, Neil, for taking time out of your busy schedule.
