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 third of the series. I interview Jamie DuBose, based in San Diego, California.

Jamie owns a digital marketing agency that specializes in helping small businesses monetize their email lists.

Jamie shares so many golden nuggets in this episode, plus includes a free resource to help you create your own email nurture sequence. You don’t want to miss it.

“Email marketing has been so powerful for my clients because it’s a really great way to maintain connections with subscribers without throwing a bunch of money away. There’s no algorithm to trick. It’s so powerful because people have actually raised their hand; they want to hear from you.” – Jamie DuBose
