Blake is the CMO at Copy.ai and a prolific creator on Twitter.
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.

Given all the projects I'm involved in, it's all too easy for my calendar to become a chaotic mess. 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.
