Welcome to Writes
Hi! I'm Ash. On Writes, I'll be sharing my journey as a marketer focused on content and brand at Buffer, a software company with 70,000+ paying customers.
Whether you want to build an audience for your software business or create a series to attract customers to your consumer brand, I hope you'll find something to help you here at Writes.
I owe my career to creating content online. And I decided to launch Writes because I wanted to share my journey and create a place to keep tabs on what I'm learning and everything that inspires me day-to-day in the hope it'll help you too.
Writes isn't for everyone. If you want quick wins and growth hacks, this isn't your spot. Writes is for those who want to create advertising that doesn't seem like advertising. It's for the people that understand marketing is about driving revenue, but care about more than moving numbers.
I'd love for you to subscribe and join the community.
