In our current podcast series, I interview the owners of 4 very different email marketing businesses and we dive deep into their marketing.
Today’s episode is the second of that series. I interview Samar Owais, an email marketing strategist and copywriter based in Pakistan. She specializes in software as a service (SaaS) and eCommerce.
Samar has worked with big-name brands, including Drip, HubSpot, and Pinterest. Listeners are bound to take away at least one idea to apply to their own email marketing that increases sales and revenue.
“We put our customers first. My clients are working with me, but I am working for their clients, customers, or users. I approach everything from their perspective, and making sure that we are serving them.” – Samar Owais
