☠️ The Failure of DTC, New TikTok Ads Data, and More

Last Updated:

👋 Hola beautiful Whale Mailer!

Still over in Barcelona, enjoying some sangria, tapas, and paella.

But, the show must go on!

So, for today’s roundup…

First up is a podcast episode with Asher Ismail.

Asher cofounded Uncapped, and is doing some fascinating stuff, helping founders raise money without giving up equity…

He’s even giving you a little gift if you make it to the end of the epsiode ;)

Now, for our recommended readings.

First up, a fascinating twitter thread on the hypothesis that DTC has ‘failed’ as a whole.

The writer makes a compelling argument - worth the read.

Then we have an article from Business Insider on some updated TikTok ads data. Looks like TikTok is gaining some ground on Meta…

And to round out the readings, we have a step-by-step guide from Zain Kahn giving away the secrets to massive LinkedIn growth.

He went from 0-60,000 followers in 6 weeks.


As always, thanks so much for renting us this precious real estate in your inbox.

It’s an honor!
