Pro Tips

If you have an image in an email, it needs an “”ALT tag”” meaning a way for someone who doesn’t have the ability to see to identify what that image is. If it doesn’t have an “”ALT tag””, it’s negative points. Whenever you include an image. Make sure you fill out the spot that says what is this image.

At the end of any campaign. If you don’t have something else to send them, you have the “”9 word email”” which is ideally sent 30 days after the last activity. The subject line is first name question mark and then it says “Hey Kelsey, are you still looking for or at getting started in automation?” “Are you still looking to sell a house or you still looking to buy a house?” And that’s it. Just a question. And the idea behind it is people reply to it.

Quotes

I got my foot in the door with automation doing marketing automation. But now I’m looking at the whole business and what can be implemented from marketing, to sales, to operations, to accounting. You start getting deep into that stuff and then it’s data and programming and there’s many disciplines and you can go super deep into a lot.

Jordan Hatch would play Counter-Strike in the middle of the workday. He took this support call in the middle of a Counter-Strike match and answered the support call with no issues and then he still won that round or whatever in Counter-Strike. It was insane.
– Bret Martineau

They use this example of what they call”t-shaped” people and a “t-shaped” person is someone with a broad spectrum of skillsets where there’s very, very deep understanding of one or more of those disciplines.

The way I look at it if you’re fighting, compare it to like say entrepreneurship, it’s about how you mitigate risk.
– Kelsey Bratcher

A lot of the decisions that I’ve made about things that I’m trying to do I meet with that same fear and I know now that I’m trying to train myself enough to know that what you do when that happens is you move forward and in fact that goes back to we were talking about before with fighting.
