AWeber is one of the earliest email service providers. Initially founded in 1998 Aweber helps thousands of small businesses communicate with their customers.
When Aweber began their key differentiator was an automated drip campaign. This is a time based series that delivers regular email messages to an audience.
As more competing products came into the marketplace and as our customers became more sophisticated with their email campaigns we needed to update the product.
At AWeber, I was the head of product. I lead a team of product managers and UX designers. One of our projects was Campaigns – an email marketing automation platform that was event driven and allows for more sophisticated campaigns.
My first professional job involved playing video games for 9 hours a day. After experiencing early signs of brain rot, I decided to teach myself how to write software.
My entire career is characterized by this “why not?” attitude.
I'm currently applying my experience at product development to help early to mid-stage companies develop a “product first” mindset.

On blog posts where I discuss products I may include affiliate links. If you click on one of these links and buy something then I get a teeny-tiny commission. As of this writing I think I make enough to buy a cup of coffee once every couple of months.
I don't get any paid compensation directly to write product reviews. I think that's pretty scammy.
