The Impact Of Digital Pollution in B2B Marketing | Ethan Beute, Chief Evangelist of BombBomb
BombBomb was founded in 2006 by Darin Dawson and Conor McCluskey. The idea came from two salesmen that knew their best client interactions came from face to face meetings, but during this time, communication had started to become faceless. Connor wanted to test the waters and sent out a video email to test out this form of communication and the results were overwhelming-essentially leading to the birth of BombBomb!Ethan Beute came onto BombBomb in 2011 as their VP of Marketing. At this point in time, Ethan had already carved a niche for himself in the B2B marketing world. Having written books such as “Rehumanize Your Business” and “Human-Centered Communication”, Ethan eventually blossomed into his current role as Chief Evangelist, to spread the good word of Bomb Bomb’s mission in changing the ways in which organizations communicate with their consumers.Contact Information: Ethan Beute-Chief Evangelist of BombBombLinkedin Page: https://www.linkedin.com/in/ethanbeute/BombBomb Website: https://bombbomb.com/

NOT need Venture Capital Investment to be a successful SaaS Company | Guillaume Moubeche CEO of lemlist
Guillaume’s early journey was full of successes and failures, as he so vividly describes.He and his parents grew up on a farm in Southern France. His unbridled ambition is the driving force for putting him in the position he’s lucky to be in, today.Before his journey brought him into the world of digital marketing, G was a chemical engineer, having received his first degree from Chimie ParisTech-PSL.Every journey starts with rock-bottom level experiences. G travelled for a year, using social networks to stay at people’s homes. He would work in exchange for living accommodations, taking any job he could get his hands on to stay afloat. Once he uncovered his passion, he went back to school to study marketing at HEC Paris, launching his 1st business with his father.Unfortunately the 1st business didn’t pan out in the ways he had hoped. As G states: ''When we launched our first website, we only got 6 orders.”The relationship with his father suffered, due to the failures of the business. Following this journey of trials and tribulations, he went into an agency job with his friend, starting with outbound prospecting. He was the Co-Founder of LeadGuru.ioAfter a few months, they generated thousands and thousands in revenue. This, in turn, fostered the love for the industry. Which prompted G to start Lemlist in 2018.If you’re interested in keeping up with G’s journey, see below for a list of the channels you can find him on:Linkedin Profile: https://www.linkedin.com/in/-g-/Lemlist Website: https://www.lemlist.com/
