Best DTC / Ecom podcast I’ve found!
I love how it blends both strategic and tactical insights and highlights the challenges and solutions across the entire journey from 0-1 when the founders are just figuring stuff out all the way to optimizing the business after they’ve scaled. Amazing interviewer and guests. Super helpful as a DTC / ecom founder myself.
The hosts ask the best questions
I’m recently discovered the DTC POD at the perfect time because I’m making a pivot in my design business. So far I’ve listened to episodes 287, 272 and 265 and it’s cool to hear the behind-the-scenes of how the different functions of the industry work, like celebrity brand building, working with influencers, and how the best products are invented + launched. I love how the hosts ask questions (like the nitty gritty details) about the DTC industry that are rarely talked about.
Fantastic podcast for those in the DTC space
I have learned SO MUCH from this podcast! It’s not easy to navigate DTC in an online setting but Ramon and Blaine break it down for listeners. They ask their successful guests all the right questions to get to the bottom of common challenges entrepreneurs face.
