Digital Marketing is Dead As We Know It with Ryan Deiss at Traffic & Conversion

Unscalable Marketing is good, Scalable Isn’t Everything

Do the things you can’t track

  1. Send emails without links and ask for a reply? Ask a question? When you engage them in conversation, you find out what the want.
  2. Get a MANAGED Facebook Group.
    • Are you willing to assign someone to the Facebook group?
    • Post unrelated content
  3. STOP WORRYING ABOUT BUTTON COLOR.
  4. Answer 10 questions on Quora
    • Take good ones and pass it to a facebook live
  5. 1 – on – 1 Onboarding
  6. Write a book…. Or two.
  7. Publish a podcast
  8. Read this book: This Won’t Scale at drift.com/books/this-wont-scale
