📈 0 to $30M Bootstrapped, Ecom Merchandising 101, and More

👋 Hello beautiful Whale Mailer!

This Thursday round-up is filled with helpful marketing resources, as expected:

First up is a podcast episode with Olly Hudson, an agency owner spending $2M+ per month on TikTok ads.

Starting (or leveling up) your TikTok ad efforts? This is a must listen.

Now, for our recommended readings. First up, a fantastic tutorial by Justin Welsh on how use a VA to save you 40 hours per month.

Next, we have a deep dive by Alex Greifeld (our fav) on all things merchandising in ecommerce.

If you like our Tuesday essays, you’ll love this piece.

And to round out the readings, we have thread of threads (very meta) by Ash Melwani on how he and his co-founder scaled their ecom brand to $30M without funding.

Truly a masterclass in ecom marketing.

Thanks so much for opening up space in your inbox for us twice per week - it’s an honor.

Cheers,

R
