#FollowFriday: Troy Claus

By: Gini Dietrich | October 22, 2010 | 

It might be too early to #FollowFriday Troy Claus, simply because he started his blog only this week. But I really like what he’s had to say so far and his business partner IS Danny Brown (at Bonsai Interactive) so how bad can he be? I mean, his latest post is about the Ultimate Fighter, but we’ll forgive him that one for being new.

With many years of experience in marketing, product, and brand management, Troy has a sense about him that is different than most – he understands not only his craft, but also how it relates back to business growth. Lots and lots of people talk about how they can relate results back to making money, but Troy walks the walk. There is no professional better than the one who can talk and show, without having to exclaim they’re the smartest person in the room. And I’m willing to bet Troy is one of the smartest people in the room.

I don’t know how he managed to score a partnership with Danny, but that definitely makes him brilliant. So follow him on Twitter, subscribe to his new blog, and get to know him…you won’t regret it! And Troy? Do some vlogging, will ya? We have to check out your accent.
