On the show today is Blake Emal
. Blake is the CMO at Copy.ai
and a prolific creator on Twitter.
I wanted to bring him on because Blake went from 0 to over 28k followers in under a year. He’s created a number of side projects including his latest called Float that allows you to create courses right in Notion.
You'll hear about the unconventional way he became the CMO at Copy.ai
, how to build an audience on Twitter, and why he builds in public.

With SavvyCal, I can set frequency limits so I only have so many meetings in a day or week, I can set preferred times to meet, and I can also toggle between multiple availability presets so I batch similar meetings together.
