Bootstrapped Web: Rob Walling on Drip, MicroConf & The Future of Bootstrapping

[65] Rob Walling on Drip, Microconf, and the Future of Bootstrapped Startups

In this episode of Bootstrapped Web we sit down for a chat with Rob Walling.  Rob is a founder of several self-funded startups including HitTail and Drip, co-host of the ZenFounder and Startups For The Rest of Us  podcasts,  and co-host of Microconf.

Today we catch up with Rob to talk about what’s new with Drip, his main project.  Drip is an email marketing SAAS product that is really revolutionizing how email marketing is being done.  Rob talks about how Drip has recently experienced a strong growth trend, how the product is offering enough added value for him to consider a change in pricing strategy, and some of the considerations around a growing product.

Just under a month away is Microconf in Las Vegas, the highlight of the year for bootstrapped startup founders everywhere.  Both Brian and Jordan will be giving attendee talks this year, which is always the highlight of the conference for everyone.

But Rob’s newest venture is the podcast he recently launched with his wife and clinical psychologist, Sherry Walling.  The Zen Founder podcast touches on the softer side of the startup world, with a focus on the balance of family and work priorities.  Take a listen, we think you’ll really enjoy it.
