Was just reminded of the time I ran a "Web Domain White Elephant Exchange" years ago. It was ~very stressful~ sending these emails over Christmas. 🤦‍♀️ Found the archive:

Here's the full list of them, I guess I let it lapse at some point (semi-ironic 🤣): And some entertaining discussion:

haha it was decently complicated. Lots of matching and emailing and scripting, and even then a ton of people didn't actually transfer their domains.

Wrote about this feeling a few years ago. The gist being that founders and entrepreneurs are all in their own holes. We only see the other people up on their big hills, and ignore the other folks in holes with us.

This is an extremely useful thread. It’s lonely out there, folks.

Came across the old Sole Flounder google group. Love this message. Time to restart it again.

It's not always the easiest task. But it sure is humbling and invigorating to talk to your users this way. It's one of the defining reasons we launched Arrows Outreach as our first tool. It's the pillar for what we want to build everything else upon.

A lot of folks would fire off a bulk email or survey in Intercom/Mailchimp/etc to save themselves time. But I think that's a cop out and bound to get weaker results. Instead, I did my best to personalize each email to the person. And the responses were really positive!

Our launch for Arrows Outreach was a few weeks ago now. While the launch reception was positive, what actually matters (people using it) has been disappointing. So I decided to use our own tool to manually email 100 people who fell-off during onboarding. (cont'd)

hey Avery. On your homepage you mention Instagram under the Twitch headline. Just FYI!

Let’s start a podcast Dan. Except we edit each other’s lines to say whatever we want.

This is a crazy cool launch. The overdub feature is wild.

My point (and andrew’s I believe): not all podcasts will/should be paid. But the most fanatic ones are becoming paid more often. Their fans will go where they can support & patreon is likely not the best platform for treating your podcast like a real business.

the segment on paid podcasts was painful tbh. Feels like you didn’t understand andrew’s post or their strategy. FWIW, I hate using patreon and would gladly switch to another platform if the hosts I support ask. And I’d support 2-3 more podcasts that don’t ask.
