Smart Marketer For Smart Marketing.

i’ve been a follower of Molly Pittman since 2015 and I have learned some of my best and most profitable marketing lessons from her that have helped me and my clients.

I just listened to the first four episodes. The Black Friday episode (running sales) is so great and i’ve shared it with multiple people and the advice was AMAZING!

Episode 1 is invaluable to entrepreneurs trying to figure out where they are and who they serve.

I’ve subscribed and can’t wait for next week’s episode. i’ve culled my podcast list down to 3 business and 3 fun - this has moved into first place on my business podcasts list.

Thanks Molly, Ezra and John!

So much more than a business podcast

I love this podcast! Smart Marketer has the best resources available and I’m so excited they have a podcast. The offer a ton of business insights as well as tools and info for life. The “not business” segments are so helpful and not what you’ll hear on other business podcasts. Molly, John, and Ezra, thank you for creating this!

What’s great about this podcast is that they incorporate other sides of the business not just technical content. Looking forward to hearing more episodes!
