One of the most authentic internet marketers to have grown in magnanimity over the years has been Dave Taylor. Being a graduate in computer science as the major subject of focus and philosophy as the minor subject from University of California, Dave had one of the deadliest academic combos there is. He used his academic knowledge to the fullest in achieving his marketing and sales goals. Initially employed at HP’s RnD labs, Dave spent his early career doing research in the fields of Artificial Intelligence and in developing HP’s Unix based mail clients systems.
During the later half of the 80s, Dave went on to launch Intuitive systems, which was a techno-consultancy firm and Dave is still in charge of the firm. His business is going strong, even today, with an ultra-impressive client portfolio. Having penned down some of the most informative and enlightening books, papers and journals as a part of his freelance gigs, Dave has now become one of the most respected technical writers around. He has many titles to his name- “HP Chronicles”, “Tech World”, “Info world” and his world famous first book – “Global software”.
Dave’s major online stint was the launch of The Internet Mall. He had started this venture in partnership with two other people in the Silicon Valley during the time the Dot Com boom was gaining strength. His business soon reached the $1 million mark and was later sold to TechWave- a Seattle based company. After selling off his online business, Dave got back to text writing and wrote one of the most famous Unix titles to have been made till date- Teach yourself Unix in 24 hours.
After creating some more successful online ventures, Dave got into the world of consultancy again. He understood his strengths and realized that his main strengths were his expertise in various fields and experience. Therefore, rather than starting his own ventures and selling them, he opened his own consultancy firm- Growing Ventures. Going on from there, Dave has started two recent ventures- AnswerSquad and ClickThroughSquad- both internet based sites, with the former aimed at providing authentic answers to all your tech related queries and the latter serving as a unique link between e-mail and some other services.
Besides, there are some other works in the pipeline (AskDaveTaylor and IntuitiveTalk being two of the most sought after ones). Dave, with all his experience in the field of marketing, technical writing and Internet Product promotion is definitely on of the most revered veterans of online money making.
