It was great to chat to David who is co founder of Demio - some really cool webinar software (that integrates with EventsFrame of course ;) )

It’s a great entrepreneur ‘origin story’. David is one of the new breeds of entrepreneurs who have never had a job, and I really love these stories, as when I came out of college it wasn’t an option to start an online business but now it’s a viable career choice.

David had a lot of false starts including launching 4 web apps before he stuck with Demio and even then it took 2 years to launch it, so it was a real struggle in the early days.

We also learn about running virtual meetups, training and events via webinars and discuss:

  1. How to keep people engaged with regular activities, quizzes etc.
  2. How to sell a virtual event using testimonials and social proof

If you want to hear more of David, he interviewed me on his podcast about the story of EventsFrame so check it out here it was a fun chat
