👋Hello wonderful whale mailers. We have a heater for you today, so let’s jump in!
First we start with two epic product updates.
Pinterest integration is now live! All of your Pins data is now in your account and the ad spend is calculated into your MER automatically.
All of your data from every channel in one dashboard. Pretty slick.
Next, we have beefed up the Klaviyo dashboard and have added New Subscribers, Unsubscribes and Net Subscribers. On top of that we added Flows and a date picker. Incredible.
Now we move on to a deep conversation on the nuances of media buying and the best scaling strategy for Facebook Ads with Jourdan Smith. Sensational Pod. If you are buying Facebook Ads, this is a must listen!
The recommend reads is stacked with 3 bangers and a sublime Twitter thread. The first essay is an incredible exploration on price discovery. Super nerdy, but super fun!
The next rec is fun essay by Shane Rostad (one of my fave newsletters) on why you don’t need to optimize your store.
Moving along, we have included an epic long form essay on the best acquisition strategies for B2B SAAS.
Closing out the reading recs section is a fantastic thread on the Cult of Apple. Speaking of, just bought the 3rd Gen AirPod Pros, will report back soon.
As always, we have our fact, tip and tool of the week.
Thanks for being a Whale Mailer.
You rock and I think you are awesome.
