On the show today is Sara, also known as SaraNoSocks
. Sara is a creator, designer, and community-builder.
I wanted to bring her on because she's actually a very reluctant marketer and I wanted to get the perspective of someone who doesn't really like traditional marketing. Despite that, she's the host of two podcasts, she's created two great no-code products, and is one of Makerpad's Creators in Residence
You'll hear about Sara's own struggles and failures with marketing, how she uses Twitter for social listening and customer development, and why she chooses to be so transparent sharing her financials and updates on everything she works on.
