💪 Titan of industry

Happy Tuesday! It’s Elon Musk’s world, we’re just living in it. After his latest acquisition, the titan of industry now has 110,000+ employees working for him across his portfolio of companies.

Let’s get into it…


Digital Marketing News

  • Elon Musk buys Twitter for $44 billion. 11 days after making an offer, the CEO of Tesla, SpaceX, and The Boring Company is now set to become the owner of Twitter. The deal is set to officially close later this year. Dogecoin, Elon’s favorite meme coin, also jumped 30% on the news.
  • SpaceX signs in-flight WiFi deal with private jet company. The company has agreed to equip 100 JSX planes with Starlink terminals.

  • Stripe announces crypto payouts for Twitter users. The platform will allow certain Twitter users to take payouts from Ticketed Spaces and Super Follows in USDC, a dollar-backed stablecoin.

Working With Clients

Know Your Numbers

What gets measured gets managed.

That’s why, when it comes to working with clients…

You should be tracking your prospecting numbers on a weekly basis.

  • How many people you reached out to
  • How many calls you booked
  • How many proposals you submitted
  • How many clients you landed

This allows you to identify where the constraint is — just like analyzing a client’s underperforming sales funnel — and then try new things until you crack the code.

Working For Yourself

Base of Support

They say you should always invest in a good pair of shoes and a good mattress.

Why?

Because if you’re not in one, you’re in the other.

Well, we’ve got one more item to add to that list:

A good office chair.

Because if you’re spending 4-8+ hours working on the computer in a crappy chair…

You could easily end up with back, neck, or wrist pain.

And your skeleton deserves better than that.

Our top choice is the IKEA Markus.

But if you’re looking for a side-by-side comparison…
