In today’s episode, I’m giving y’all an update on what’s going on at AppSumo! This is a new series we’re trying out called This Week at AppSumo (aka, TWAS).
I think most of you out there know that I’m the founder and CEO of AppSumo (the BEST site for software deals online!) and since I started it 13 years ago, it’s grown to an 8-figure/year company.
But the truth is — I’m still learning new things every day at the business. So these episodes are my time to share what I’m learning, mistakes we’ve made, and behind-the-scenes moments at the business that you won’t find anywhere else.
If you’re a founder, I hope these episodes give you ideas of things to try in your business (or maybe NOT try…) or I hope you find them interesting and entertaining!
Hit me up on Instagram and let me know what you think about this new series (I reply to DMs).
If you’ve ever wanted to learn about the day-to-day decisions we make to grow AppSumo, you’ll love this episode.
In this episode, you’ll enjoy 3 BIG things:
- Learning From Mistakes: How we’re solving the mistake I made at AppSumo 3 years ago
- Turning Weaknesses into Strengths: The strategy we use during slow seasons to benefit the business AND customers
- Doing More of What Works: What we’re doubling-down on that brings us more success
And if you enjoy listening to the podcast, I would appreciate it if you left a review on Apple Podcasts to help more people learn about it. I might shout you out in the next episode!
