Ciao my favorite marketer,
Now if you’ve been following this newsletter (and podcast!) for a while, it will be no secret to you that I’m a big believer in building communities on the internet (and real life) for years.
We run two communities for our agency GrowthBay, advocate it to every client who will listen and shout it from the (social media) rooftops every chance we get.
So you can imagine my excitement right now introducing to you the Queen of community building herself:
Rosie Sherry. 🎊 🤟
I’ve been a long-time fan of her thoughtful takes on internet communities and how they can empower movements and ideas and transform the internet into a cozy place of belonging and support.
And she got the experience to back it all up:
Founded and built Ministry of Testing to 25k members
Led and grew IndieHackers.com to 140k+ members
And she’s at it once again at Orbit.love (a community SaaS, how meta!)
So if you are in any way, shape or form interested in community building, you should probably listen to this one.
