Want to avoid getting banned from your email marketing tools?
We invited Michael Greenberg (@gentoftech) to run an introductory workshop for any founders who send emails.
Michael has built three different 6-figure ARR productized services, and sold one of those. Currently he's writing & podcasting about digital operations, entrepreneurial strategy, & content creation.
The session was recorded and everyone in attendance had the opportunity to ask questions.
This was a members only event. If you're not yet a member of Indie Worldwide you can apply here:
