Gabriel Weinberg, internet entrepreneur and founder of DuckDuckGo is my guest this week on The James Altucher Show.
The biggest complaint that people constantly have about the internet is that companies are invading their privacy. Companies can now track where you are, who you are, and what you like to do.
Gabriel’s website fixes this problem. DuckDuckGo is a search engine that doesn’t track you while at the same time giving you better optimized results.
In this interview, Gabriel describes how he was able to take this rebellious website and compete against the elephant on everyone’s computer, Google. He was able to gain customers through what he calls Traction.
It’s a great interview for anyone that has an idea that they want to grow or is interested in internet privacy.
Plus, at the end of the episode I give you listeners a challenge that might just get you hired at DuckDuckGo.
In This Episode You Will Learn:
- How to protect your internet privacy
- What it’s like competing against one of the largest companies in the world
- Why experimenting is so important
- How to gain users for any product or service
- How to accomplish viral marketing
- Whether or not speaking engagements work
