On the show today is Guillaume Moubeche. Guillaume is the founder of Lemlist, an email automation tool for sales.
I wanted to bring him on because Lemlist has managed to scale past $10M ARR in just a few years in a very competitive category. How? Exceptional marketing. Guillaume and the Lemlist team have built an impressive marketing engine by thinking like a media company. LinkedIn, YouTube, masterclasses, social media... they've found winning formulas for multiple channels.
You'll hear about how they've evolved their content with the LinkedIn algorithm, how they use paid masterclasses to acquire customers, and why they're investing in a video docuseries.
Sponsored by Riverside — It’s what I use to record both my podcasts, Everything Is Marketing and Default Alive, but I was using Riverside long before they became a sponsor. I used to use Zoom until someone interviewed me using Riverside and I knew I had to switch. I love it because they take local recordings on each side, which gives you a reliable connection and the highest quality audio and video tracks. Separate HD recordings, an iOS app, automatic transcription… It’s made specifically for podcasters. Folks like Guy Raz from How I Built This, Courtland Allen from Indie Hackers, and even Hillary Clinton uses it if you can believe it.
