I just recently switched my newsletter from Mailchimp to ConvertKit. I really like CK so far and highly recommend it. A couple of positives:

I agree. I'll test it out, but not sure if I'll 100% move. Using Apple mail with a Google mail custom domain is working fine at the moment.

We shall see...

I had two critiques on the HEY app but one was recently fixed. First, I'm glad they just added the "quick action menu" on all pages of the app. That makes things way more smooth to navigate.

The one…

I did use Rebrandly for an SMS marketing campaign for a client earlier last year and thought they were great for what they offered. The only downside for me was that they are based in Ireland (if I…

I think it really depends on what your use case is. For me, link shortening is great for social, but it automatically comes with my Buffer account, so I don't pay for yet another monthly subscription…

I use Campfire more as a quick chat/casual updates back and forth per-project, then use the "Message Board" with custom message types as ways to make threads about particular topics regarding that…

I've toyed around with this with not perfect solution. Not to be a massive Basecamp advocate, but for work, organization, and thread finding, this is perfect for what I do.

Thanks! I had a feeling this was going to be the answer. I was also looking at Revue and Podia, but Substack definitely seems like the easiest choice. I appreciate your help!

I'm definitely going to do more digging into this. Currently, when I build sites with dynamic content, it's a combo of elementor and advanced custom fields.

This has been my nightmare lately. I'm currently working with an old-school management team company adopt to modern-day technology. When I first started with them and did my audit, I asked for a…

I’m always blown away with the “script + procedures” efforts in digital marketing and sales these days. Just because there is a script, doesn't mean you can't customize to your current efforts…

Yeah, so far when I've used it with team members, it was a simple, "Can you talk real quick? Here's my link."

I haven't had any luck canceling or deferring payments. I live in Las Vegas and all non-essential businesses are shut down. WeWork sent an email saying, "Because essential businesses work out of our…

I use it primarily for landing pages and temp sites / setting up a launch pad site. If you want to get things up and running to get an MVP set up going, it’s great. For production and long term…
