    324. Daniel Vassallo on building - and monetizing - a Twitter following

    Daniel Vasallo left a great job at Amazon in February 2019 with the idea of working independently.
    He thought about building a product, but decided that he first ought to build an audience, so he set out to learn Twitter. 
    From a base of a couple hundred followers 18 months agao, @dvassallo now has over 44K followers.
    He wrote a technical book on Amazon Web Services that generated over $100K in revenue. And then he created a guide on how to build a Twitter following, "Everyone Can Build a Twitter Audience," based on his own experience - that guide has also grossed over $100K.
    After I spoke with Daniel I purchased his Twitter course and I recommend it.  Purchase it on Gumroad here:

Packed with Value

Every episode Will puts out is packed with value for the modern independent professional. I was recently having a tough time gathering a video testimonial from a client, then I listened to an Unleashed episode which provided me with an actionable strategy to use. I used Will's advice step by step and it worked to perfection!

If you are looking your next great podcast that provides practical advice - look no further!

So informative and action oriented

I can’t wait to listen to the rest of the Umbrex podcasts since I’ve loved the ones I’ve heard. They’re so clear and action oriented. Thanks for helping independent consultants navigate a whole host of relevant topics!

Fabulous interviewer

I find myself clicking on topics I didn’t even know I was interested in just to hear how Will navigates the topic and effortlessly brings out the most fascinating stories and core ideas hidden in the books and companies of people he puts on his show.
