AMY BYBEE | CREATOR & HOST
Hi, I’m Amy. Host of Conversations with an Email Guru, lover of email & lifecycle marketing, and founder of Email Growth Society.
It’s been a wild journey. Let me tell you a little bit about myself…
I started in email marketing in 2003 using Mail Chimp. I was working at a small marketing arts & fitness facility at night to subsidize my 4th grade teaching salary. Yes, I started my career as a teacher. At the gym, I was desperately trying to find new ways to bring people back to sign up after using a Groupon special. Calling was not my thing. So I learned a lot about email – and began using it. To my surprise, it worked well. And that’s when my love (and slight obsession) with email marketing began.
I learned a ton of cool tools on my own over the next several years. Tools like Hubspot, Pardot, Salesforce Marketing Cloud & Salesforce CRM. I went to marketing workshops, kept up with the innovations, and started to think that I may be due a career change.
I finally landed an opportunity as a Marketing Operations Associate at a cool learning & development company. I quickly moved into a Director of Marketing role and built a really powerful demand generation engine that was centered around Hubspot and Salesforce. It was a fantastic 3 years.
From there I worked in both B2B & B2C email marketing & automation contract roles and for agencies, getting in front of as many different clients to help them solve their unique challenges with email. My passion really lies in helping companies – especially start-ups.
Which brings me to now…
Over the past 4 years, I have made it my mission to help companies build best-in-class email marketing programs. I founded Email Growth Society to be a place where email programs were created to both help the company with revenue but to delight the customer. I am focused on teaching & empowering start-ups, through conference speaking engagements, YouTube channel, and in Conversations with an Email Guru, to take their email marketing to another level.
