Check out this three-question growth marketing interview with Blake!

What does an ordinary workday look like for you?

Thoughtful planning, followed by 2 hours of deep work.

Lunch at some point, open for meetings the rest of the day. I also tackle deep work and projects when I don’t have meetings here.

At night, I ideate and create content.


What are some of your favorite marketing tools or resources?

My go-to is Backlinko because Brian Dean provides so much more depth than other marketing bloggers (*cough* Neil Patel *cough*).

I also really like Harry Dry’s Marketing Examples.

What is the best piece of marketing advice you’ve ever received?

All complexity needs to happen in the building stage. You can add depth and detail here, but the end result needs to be simple.

In other words: great complex building leads to a simple end user experience.
