Show Notes

In this episode of the Driven Female Entrepreneur Podcast, I speak with Ian Brodie, an Consultant, Trainer, and the Author of the #1 best selling and highest rated book on email marketing: Email Persuasion.

In 2007, Ian launched a blog focusing on marketing and sales for consulting, coaching, and training businesses. Despite gaining substantial traffic, converting visitors into clients proved challenging until a pivotal moment.

The turning point arrived when Ian discovered the potential of email. He was initially sceptical about their effectiveness, until a friend urged him to try it. Embracing emails transformed his approach and gave tangible results. Yet, facing content exhaustion, he found solace in storytelling, realising its profound impact on audiences. This reshaped his communication style, preferring engaging narratives over overwhelming advice.

Now, Ian is well known and respected in the email marketing space. He helps business owners use email campaigns to build their authority, engage audiences, and boost sales.

Don’t miss this episode to learn from Ian Brodie's journey and enjoy a masterclass in the art of email marketing for building relationships that lead to sales.

"You've got to share something unusual to make it interesting." - Ian Brodie


In this value-packed episode you’ll learn:

  • How to generate, endless supply of brilliant topics for emails.
  • Be able to write interesting and engaging conversational emails.
  • Know how to gently persuade in email so your subscribers turn into buyers.
  • How to enjoy the email marketing process.

...and so much more!

“No greater skill than pulling and meeting people from all sorts of different facets of life in order to feed your mind and open your mind to other things." - Ian Brodie
