I run an 8 figure brand. From A to Z this show helped me get a grasp on DTC/eccomerce
I started listening to this show in 2019.
At the time, I owned a real estate business. It was hands-on, 5-figure monthly revs. I had built it from zero.
The idea of a remote business where I could operate from a distance and be scaled was lovely.
So, while I was driving to and from my job and my business for the next year or two, I binged on this show.
I learned about subscription models, DTC brands, Facebook ads, CRO, Google ads, Shopify, and email marketing.
It was a little fast for a newbie, but I eventually grasped DTC/e-commerce.
I sold all my real estate. With zero experience, I hunted around for opportunities. It took a while, but eventually, I got in. (My wife started a store)
I was heavily involved in 5 stores in the last four years. A few got to 5 figures monthly revs, two did six figures monthly, and one recently hit seven figures in a month. I also consulted on a few dozen stores.
In 2020, I was listening to an episode with Chase Dimond, and after listening, I did some email work on our site that resulted in a six-figure month for our 5 figure store. Within months, we did six figures in an email based on knowledge and actions taken after listening to that short episode.
Lesson: listen often and act quickly.
I still go back and listen to Kurt. I'm still getting knowledge. Thanks for all the knowledge, enthusiasm, and entertainment.
Kurt doesn’t ever skip over detail and asks the questions we need to hear to get the full story. An amazing resource for anyone in business online in any capacity
