This year has been a big one for Marti Kerner and her agency, Spring Ahead Media. Before joining Mailchimp & Co, Marti was, predominantly, a casual Mailchimp user—she used the platform to send weekly newsletters to her @everydayjewishmom followers.
Now, just 4 months later, she’s achieved Mailchimp partner status and trains small business owners in all things Mailchimp.
Read on to find out how Marti did it—and how her business has blossomed along the way.
Marti, you recently reached partner status. Congrats! Has joining Mailchimp & Co changed your business?
In a big way. Becoming a partner’s given me a business. It’s given me a focus.
Well, before I joined Mailchimp & Co, I worked in social media (Facebook ads and Instagram engagement). Then, suddenly, my one big client no longer needed me. I had all my eggs in that basket, so I needed to rethink what direction my business was headed.
