Connect with Dave
Graduate from Harvard with a degree in Applied Math, in 2012 I quit my corporate job to travel the world with my wife, and over 5+ years we visited over 60 countries together. During that time I launched and exited from my first SaaS, NinjaOutreach, an influencer marketing platform.
Now I run Shortlist.io, a Marketing Un-Agency that specializes in helping businesses increase their traffic and revenue through different methods: SEO, Link Building, Website Development, Social Media and Inbound Marketing. Recently we launched the Shortlist Metrics Tool where you can analyze thousands of websites for SEO metrics in minutes.
Also, I previously owned and successfully sold two SaaS businesses myself (NinjaOutreach.com and LessChurn.io), and our agency did about $500k in its first year.
I'd love to share our approach to growth; what's worked and what hasn't, as well as talk about the transition from software to a service-based business and the challenges that come along with it.
