👋 Hello my wonderful Whale Mailers.
Last Whale Mail of the year. Can you believe it?!? 40 issues and 3k subscribers later. Thank you for being a Whale Mailer!
Ok, on to the show!
We start with an amazing essay that is a must read for every marketer (yes, it is that good).
Aggregation Theory is one of the most impactful theories that I have encountered in recent years. Ben Thompson is a genius and I recommend reading everything he writes.
After that, we have a fun light hearted listicle (I know) that gives an Urban Dictionary'esque treatment to the industry’s most used buzzwords. It’s awesome.
Next, we have three sensational threads. The first is a great read for some industry tips and tons of wisdom. The second is stellar breakdown of how to maximize Q5.
The third is a wonderful dissection of storytelling. Uber legit.
For our recommended listening, we have a wonderful business breakdown of the NFL. All the economics, incentives; I mean the works. Super fascinating. And if you wondering…I placed 5th in my DTC fantasy league 🙄.
Lastly, we have our tip, tool and fact of the week. Def check the tool.
I have been absolutely blown away with mmhmm. Horrible name, sensational product.
One more thing, we appreciate all the support and you allowing us in your inbox every Tuesday & Thursday. You rock!
From me and everyone on the TW team: Have a happy and healthy New Year 🥂!
