[Podcast] Episode 024: The most downloaded episode of all-time with Noah Kagan

On this episode of Ask Me About Email Marketing, we discuss starting, failing, monetization, driving traffic, staying accountable, growing businesses, connecting with people, and much more with Noah Kagan, the chief sumo at SumoMe.com. Whoa, that’s a lot to talk about.

In fact, Noah covers so much ground in our brief conversation, I’m convinced that this episode will be THE most downloaded episode to date. Let’s make it happen.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • Why quality of subscribers supersedes quantity
  • How to commit to an email strategy and stay accountable
  • The velocity to $1 principle, and value of selling early
  • Ways feedback from subscribers can shape your strategy
  • The importance of sticking with your business
  • Some tactics for getting traffic, what to do with it, and why you might not need it at all
  • … and much more!

Thanks to Noah for joining the show, dropping some knowledge, and providing marketers with a ton of valuable tools at SumoMe.

    Hey Tom, great show! I really like what Aweber is doing lately and the podcast is definitely helpful. I also appreciate you putting yourself out there and answering some of Noah’s tough questions. It’s reassuring to hear that people and businesses I admire have had the same challenges. By the way, I’ve been using SumoMe for a couple of months on one of my websites. It’s a great product that goes perfectly with Aweber.
