David Cunningham is an experienced entrepreneur who has founded two startups both with successful trade sale exits. His first startup Shanghai Vision was a real estate investment company selling properties in China. In September this year he sold his second startup OurExplorer.com an ecommerce travel website.
David is a sales and marketing expert. In this interview I talk with David about how he marketed, built trust and sold offline. And then how he did it again selling online at OurExplorer.com, via SEO and SEM and then converting the customers to sales. Two very different approaches required.
After his recent exit, David’s is now an “Entrepreneur in Waiting”. He’s now looking for a Sydney based early stage startup to invest in and work closely with. See the end of this interview for more details.
