Software ate the world. Now what?

In 2013 I joined a small startup of 7 people inside of WeWork Labs. Marketers weren't on AngelList yet, and the consultants were still in FiDi. Each day we showed up and asked: how do we help our customers? It didn't matter if it was "product," "marketing," or "customer support." We created what people needed.

Sleeves rolled up, I took this grassroots approach with me to places like Zapier, Codecademy and Buffer. I watched as coworkers talked less about open source and more about what FAANG company our next recruit was from. The dot.coms got snatched and “growth marketing" became handing money over to Zuck.

IMHO, it hasn't created better businesses. Growth, when you follow the models down to the people behind each data point, is really about whether or not you made something people like. The same holds true for marketing.

Would I want to read it? Do I want it in my inbox? Would I bookmark that webpage?

That's our bar. 

Our clients are founders and marketing leads building products that solve real pain points. And their marketing should, too. We'll hit your goals, create emails people read, and craft website copy that makes your customers go, "That's it!" We'll turn that high-level strategy into clickable, bookmarkable, good stuff on the internet.

Because startup marketing deserves better, it deserves things people actually like. And that works.

Come say hello.
