158 – Scrappy Marketing Tactics, with Thomas Shields
By Daniel Murray
How did Thomas Shields go from writing a small pickleball newsletter with nothing more than a MailChimp account, a “shitty” website, and a few Facebook subscribers to creating a comprehensive sports channel where 50% of its partners are inbound advertisers?
By getting scrappy.
Thomas talks with Daniel about the importance of just getting out there and doing it rather than worrying about your brand’s initial traction, how to grow a newsletter audience, and why content volume is more critical to your success than anything else.
And thanks to our episode sponsor, Retention. What do brands like Warby Parker, Dr. Squatch, Vital Proteins, and Blendjet all have in common? Retention.com is their highest performing ROAS channel by far. Visit Retention.com to book a demo today.
