I heard one of the founders - Cameron Herald speak at a conference some time ago about the culture and vision they wanted to create at the company. Interesting that when you have a clear vision and great leadership quality blogging is a bi-product of that.Must be a connection there somewhwere and what does it say about companies that don't have an effective blog strategy?


Thanks for sharing

Frank, it is indeed an interesting company. What I find fascinating is they made a nice clean brand out of what was previously a very dirty business!

Matthew Hunt

We agree. So much to talk about. In fact, 1-800 got junk blog that inspired us with our client who is in Dumpster Rentals. We started writing interesting blog content too.


It's so much more fun to be interesting!

Brian Scudamore

HUGE fan of your work David! Thank you for writing about our blog... We do work hard to make junk interesting! Cheers, Brian, Founder & CEO 1-800-GOT-JUNK?

David Meerman Scott

Brian, I'm honored that you've taken the time to stop by. You and the team are doing an awesome job. Keep up the great work!! David

Just to clarify Frank, Cameron Herold was instrumental in the growth of 1-800-GOT-JUNK?'s early stages as our Former Chief Operating Officer, however Brian Scudamore is the sole Founder and current CEO of our company.

I think you're right...when there is effective leadership and inspirational culture at the head office, our employees feel passionate. This helps create content!

Bennett Grove

This company certainly pioneered an industry that needed the professional spin. Their blog now validates that service and gives us a fun and effective account from that effective journal. Thanks for the great post!

I once tried also together with my friends how to have money out of the junks. We were undecided still on what to do when we found in a blog a very helpful thing. Indeed, it was helpful. We earned money!
