👟 AllBirds S-1, FB Automated Media Buying, Metaverse Explained & More

👋🏼 Hello beautiful Whale Mailers! It’s Thursday, so you know what time it is, Whale Mail!

We have a great one for you today. Starting off with a new product feature you all have been clamoring for; Frequently Bought Together. Leverage this data in creating bundles and optimal upsells; then print money.

Next we have a fascinating read from Benedict Evans on the blurring of retail & ecom (think Warby Parker, All Birds etc.) and the knock on effects to the business.

From that, we jump into the uber fascinating concept of the Metaverse.

We briefly touch on FB launching automated ad buying, dubbed “Ad Strategies”. It looks like a souped up version of Boosted Posts, nevertheless fascinating to see what FB is using resources on.

Then, we move on to a strong pod on the Substack Economy.

Finally, some conversion tips from our favorites over at @Oddit and a quick (but fun) walk through of the Allbirds S-1 (its a fancy document you have to submit before going public).

Small digression…if you want to read about one of the weirdest S-1’s ever submitted, check out this hilarious (but informative) article on WeWork’s S-1. Hope you all enjoy!

Have a whale of a day.

Cheers,

R

🤯 Fact of the Week

Allbirds S-1 dropped (precursor to going public) and there is some interesting stuff in there. David and Daniel do an awesome job of pulling out some of the best nuggets.

**Side note: Allbirds defines CAC (customer acquisition cost) in a weird way. It isn’t all the new customers, it’s all the customers. Normally, CAC is calculated by the amount of “new” customers you acquire. What Allbirds is defining is not CAC or order acquisition cost (OAC). If you want to go down a rabbit hole - See this thread.
