In our current podcast series, I interview the owners of 4 very different web development businesses and we dive deep into their marketing.
Today’s episode is the fourth and final of that series. I interview Hunter Rohwer, the COO of GoLive.
GoLive helps female-led businesses launch new websites within days…not months or years.
Because they place a huge emphasis on simplicity, speed is a natural byproduct of everything GoLive does. But don’t be fooled, simplicity does not mean boring!
GoLive has some big name clients, Jasmine Star, Amber Lilystrom and GirlBoss, to name a few.
In this episode, Hunter talks about the GoLive’s growth journey – they’ve been around for over 10 years – and how their marketing has evolved over the past decade.
