Doyle Buehler is the SPN member of the week due to his being all about helping other people. There are few people that know as much as Doyle does about digital marketing and how to build a brand. Even less people are willing to share info like Doyle does, so he really stands out.
One of the biggest reasons why so many business owners fail is their lack of marketing knowledge. Doyle strives to help entrepreneurs grow their business by making them aware of digital pitfalls. He also does a great job of helping business owners focus their efforts.
It’s my honor to introduce Doyle to more people as the SPN member of the week!
Doyle Buehler- The personal side
Craig Wasilchak: What is your true mission here on social media?
Doyle: Social media helps me show businesses and entrepreneurs how to be better with their digital marketing and strategy, so that they can then improve how they do things with their business. Consider it like a show and tell. I’ve taught a lot over the years in real-life, and so I love to continue this with social media.
Craig Wasilchak: In addition to the serious side of your life, Do you have a fun or unique unknown Gift or Talent that you can share with everyone?
Doyle: I do enjoy photography, as I used to be a professional photographer. I also have around 40,000 photos on my iPhone.
Craig Wasilchak: Tell me about you and your business, therefore we can get to know you better.
Doyle: I’ve been in business for over 16 years. My former career was as an aerospace engineer, a commercial photographer, as well as a military pilot. After leaving the aerospace industry and getting into business after getting my MBA in 2001, I created a couple of startups from Canada, where I’m originally from. These businesses became one of the top 40 fastest growing companies in Canada, and the fastest growing in the state, and I had expanded them around the world.
Since then, I’ve created a strategic digital consultancy, that assists businesses with defining their ‘why’ online, and then helping them define and deliver their why across their entire digital ecosystem to grow their business.
