5 Tweet Tuesday - August 1, 2023

💎  5 Tweet Tuesday 💎 

If you’re new around here, every week I share the 5 best tweets I saw in the past 7 days.

I scroll, so you don’t have to.

Let’s get to it:

#1 💎 Looking dumb pays off

Great point by Erik.

Another version of this is: “We spend the first 18 years of our life (school) just trying to fit in with the other kids. Then the next 18 years trying desperately to stand out as adults.”

#2 💎 The OG candy

For some reason I read this entire thread of 24 facts about bees. It’s great.

But if you don’t wanna click, here’s some of the best stuff:

  • Honey never goes bad, you can even eat honey that was made thousands of years ago and it’ll still taste good

  • The darker the honey it is, the less sweet it is. The lighter it is, the sweeter it is

  • It was the original antibiotic, used as an antifungal medication for generations

  • Bees don’t sleep. They work hard AND play hard

#3 💎 Winners win.

If you decide to play, decide to win.

#3.5 💎 Today’s email is brought to you by Snagged

Great domain, Rob! I hope you make the world’s best site about chicken parm.

Now back to our regularly scheduled programming…we just worked with Rob to hunt down a dope domain name (you’ll see soon).

If you’re ever looking for a great domain broker, check out Snagged.com or just dm Rob directly on twitter

#4 💎 Champagne Campaigns

Check it out - this guy, Sam Blond, ran revenue and sales for Brex (valued at $12b early last year).

He shares cool stories and tactics on twitter about what worked.

One of my favorites - he would send champagne to target customers when they fundraised + would track the results (he broke down the play-by-play here).

Incredible execution and ROI

#5 💎 Costco is King

I’ve sent over 100 editions of 5 Tweet Tuesday and every single one has ended with a meme.

Today, we break that streak to show you this fat ass chart of Costco revenues growing beautifully, wonderfully, amazingly every year for the past 25 years.

Now, I call this the Kirkland signature email finish

🤣🤣🤣 Which tweet was gold for you? Reply with the number (#1, #2, #3, #4, or #5)!
