Dan joins Host Chris Mechanic for an awesome conversation that explores how to build an experiment-driven culture, how to embrace needing to do more with less, and the power that well-crafted narratives have in telling great stories through a company’s marketing.


  • There are three key elements to building an experiment-driven culture: 1. You must test REGULARLY and CONTINUOUSLY; 2. Be STRUCTURED about your testing; 3. Make sure that all experiments build creating a broader, more cohesive strategy.
  • Companies usually have a lot of user data that is hardly analyzed and utilized. Leveraging this information can provide significant insights into customer behavior which can aid in experimentation and decision making.
  • Failed experiments are as valuable as successful ones, if not more. They provide insights into what doesn’t work which is equally important in marketing decision making.
  • For software companies, it is imperative to improve the customer experience by providing more self-service options and making comprehensive customer data more accessible to customers.
  • Using well-crafted narratives is key to creating powerful marketing. Effectively told stories can deepen customer relationships and enhance the branding of an organization.
  • While it’s easy to cringe upon hearing the common edict of “do more with less”, it’s better to embrace that idea as a challenge for you and your team. Particularly within startups, marketers need to capitalize on efficiency. This takes both a strategic and methodical approach to resource allocation.

Quote of the Show:

  • “I’m super passionate about blending art with science. It’s actually why I got into marketing in the first place; the idea that I could do both seemed too exciting to pass up.” – Dan Buczaczer

Most newsletters suck...

So while we technically have to call this a daily newsletter so people know what it is, it's anything but.

You won't find any 'industry standards' or 'guru best practices' here - only the real stuff that actually moves the needle.
