The Non-Technical Founder

The Non-Technical FounderKeyword Scout was a keyword research tool that helped businesses find low-competition, high commercial intent keywords on Google to rank their websites for. I sold this to over 1200 businesses.

SerpClix is a software that artificially increases the click-through rate of results on Google. I had over 10,000 users involved. I had over 250 agencies paying me monthly before it was acquired.

Shout is my current focus. It is an influencer search engine that allows you to find, research and reach out to influencers. Over 500 companies use Shout to find influencers to promote their companies on Instagram and YouTube.

This isn’t one of those get-rich-quick schemes that charge you a bunch of money for a snake-oil salesman to tell you everything you want to hear. In fact, what I teach isn’t quick at all, and that’s probably not what you wanted to hear, but it’s the truth. However, success will happen quicker than you think. You’ll start following the blueprint in the book and then you’ll hit the last page of the book and realize how far you and your newly founded company have come. However, let me tell you why I wrote a book (and why it’s so cheap)…

My name is Josh MacDonald and I’m 22 years old. In high school I sold 6-figures worth of marketing software. I did it again in college but this time bigger – and that company was recently acquired by a marketing firm.

After having success, a number of people started reaching out asking how I did it. So, I decided to write The Non-Technical Founder to help all those people understand how I did what I did, twice.

Stephane Kasriel is the CEO of Upwork, the largest freelancing platform where businesses and independent professionals connect and collaborate remotely. He teaches us how to properly build a remote team. You’ll learn how to avoid scams, hire efficiently and get your project built quickly.

Blake Smith is the founder of Cladwell, an app that gives fashion advice using clothes already in your closet. He took the business from $15,000 per month to $1,000,000 per year, in less than 12 months. He explains the modifications he made to make it happen.

Dr David Darmanin is the founder of Hotjar, a software used by companies like Microsoft, Panasonic and Nintendo. He is the pinnacle of success in the software space. He explains how he came up with the idea for Hotjar, and how to decide on an idea that will fulfill all of your personal goals.

First you’ll hear about my journey while I explain my pitfalls and victories over the past 9 years in business so you can learn from them without the hassle. Then the book lays out the 3-stage system.

Page 11. Investor Adam Draper explains the wrong way and the right way to come up with software ideas.

Page 51. How to filter through dozens of good ideas, to decide on the idea that you should ACTUALLY execute.

Page 153. Why more companies than every are switching from trial pricing to the freemium model and which path you should take.

"Starting anything technical can be tough but the book really opened my eyes to the world of possibilities to those of us who don’t know how to code."

"FINALLY! I heard about Josh working on this book months ago but I am so excited to finally have my hands on a copy. I’m about halfway through and have learned so much about the process that you really can’t find anywhere else."
