Video Interview with Mike King at iAcquire

While we were in New York at SMX East – we thought we would visit the iAcquire Offices to meet Mike King (@ipullrank).

Had a great chat with Mike (thanks again for letting us take over your office!), and found the answers to many questions such as:

What Tools does Mike use regularly? What’s all this about a cookbook? Building Tools, ‘Big-Ups’ to Bill Hunt and Tom Anthony, and an insider look at how iAcquire work with clients and develop tools in house.

Watch the video interview to find out this and more!

If you can’t learn fast enough or you can’t be dedicated to rolling with the punches, this is not the industry for you, but if you despise boredom and you like to have your hand in a bunch of different things this is definitely the industry for you…” Mike King iAcquire 2012

We were interrupted part way through due to Fire Engines going past (it’s New York Baby!) but we managed to get through a great set of questions from our Editorial Team, and Mike gave us some great answers.

For those of you that are asking about the not provided T-shirt – the guys at are merchandising!
