This time last year, I was thanking everyone who’d had any interaction with Einstein Marketer in the previous year (2018).
That included anyone who’d liked, commented, shared, read, visited, viewed, opened our newsletter or listened to anything we’d produced.
And this year I’d like to do something completely original: thank everyone who has had any kind of interaction with Einstein Marketer.
In the previous year, our traffic has increased by more than 321%, we’ve generated 2,000+ new subscribers EVERY month and continued to grow a super-cool, hard-working and inspirational audience.
The performance of our eBooks, social posts and all our digital content has given our team reason to smile, but only because you’ve been there to enjoy it!
Our content was created to help aspiring businesses and brands online, and in the previous year the responses, stories and interactions we’ve received have surpassed even our wildest expectations.
On behalf of everyone working at Einstein Marketer, I’d like to say a massive thank you to all of you for making this possible. Without you (yes, that means you reading this) we are nothing.
Over the course of the next year (2020) I vow to up my own game, as well as everyone in and associated with our agency- so we can serve you better and help you generate even better results online.
Director @ Einstein Marketer
