“Insights that enable action and support that drives growth.”
Ghost Influence is a collaborative incubation platform and the curator of the cogent compendium; a wiki-style collection of founder-level knowledge presented in a clear, logical, and convincing manner—from those catalyzing the evolution of digital commerce.
As Josh Waitzkin, chess prodigy and the inspiration behind ‘Searching for Bobby Fischer’, might put it, “these bite-sized learnings are a way to learn the macro from the micro.” Many resources teach volumes; some summarize a field of excellence in one paragraph.
Our members leverage the strategies, methods, and resources of founders who’ve blazed trails ahead of them while having direct access to those sharing that experience and expertise.
Brian Swichkow, Founder of Ghost Influence
He’s been dubbed a “marketing pro” (2014) and “reddit marketing expert” (2015) by Adweek, labeled a “media manipulator” by Ryan Holiday (2015), and credited as having ‘The Magic Formula For Going Viral On Reddit‘ by Forbes (2016).
He created “Harry Potter’s SkyMall“, the animated catalog that converted 2.8% of its 156K organic pageviews in the first 24 hours; developed a novelty email forwarding application that garnered 11K pageviews and 563 email signups in its first 30 minutes; and strategically pushed his aerial gymnastics to the front page of Imgur with his shirt on (523K views) and with his shirt off (560K views).
Ghost Influence is a wiki-style knowledge base populated with the tools, tactics, and techniques that catalyzed these successes and others like them. You can’t copy the successes of others, but you can steal the pieces that fit your puzzle.
