Dan Shinder, Founder/CEO, Advanced Social Marketing
In January of 2013 Dan founded the online media company Drum Talk TV, which quickly became the largest online community around the culture of drumming and percussion of all styles. Drum Talk TV has 900% more online reach and engagement than all its industry peers combined, whom have had a presence from 10 to 40+ years. Previously, Dan had a cooking show on TV, which began in Southern California. This is where he cut his teeth on video marketing before there was "video marketing" on the internet. With his Social Media On Steroids workshops, courses and consulting, Dan shares exactly how he turned Drum Talk TV from an idea into a profitable business with a global presence with about 1 million active followers in over 130 countries, reaching 20 million people a month organically using social media marketing strategies he developed on Facebook without ever paying for advertising or boosting posts. The high-level of engagement yield's an average of 2.5 Million in reach, 750,000 post engagements, 1.5 million video views and 2,500 new followers, all in every 7-day period. A Serial Entrepreneur, Dan Shinder is a husband, a father—he and his wife have collectively 11 grown children: 3 Foster Siblings his wife Nja raised with her own 4 kids and Dan has 4 of his own—and they have 19 grand-kids. The point of this is that Dan understands "busy" and always finds time to do what it takes to forge his passions forward and help others. He insists, "We all have 24 hours in a day and what we do with that is the sum of where we are with our family, business and other passions." Dan has been a musician since age since 1970 and first toured the entire US professionally at 15.
