Be You. All the time.
When you are yourself, you can be depended up on to be yourself all the time. Everyone has a gift, and when that individual is idempotent, then he/she/it can be depended upon to contribute, his/her/it’s unique talent when called upon.
Be Open. Be transparent.
It’s beautiful when you are transparent. When you are transparent the Schrodinger’s cat is not dead and alive at the same time. (Hopefully it’s alive and cute). When you are transparent, everyone can know and share your truths, and learn from your knowledge. Transparency builds trust. Trust builds a community.
Some of our advanced users requested to add what they called “Suppression Tags”. Essentially these are tags which if some subscribers have, needs to be excluded for broadcast or sequences. A use-case for this might be to create a blacklist of subscribers for e.g.
Won’t you like to know how loved were your sequences and broadcasts? We already had open and click-through rates to measure that. And just in case people didn’t like a particular message you would want to know upfront right? For that, we have added unsubscriber count in sequences and broadcast messages. …
We have big news!
If you open MFY’s dashboard, you will see two new features that we launched today! Sequences and Corner widget!
Sequences allow you to set up a drip campaign for Facebook messenger. You can create a set of messages that will be delivered to your subscriber over a period of hours or days and slowly nudge them to complete a goal. This feature is similar to what you may be familiar with in Mailchimp or Convertkit for email.
Silicon Valley had been my dream place to live in. And building a startup was my dream job. And it had taken me 10 years to reach there. But, in just 2 years of living in the Valley, I realized that I would have to choose between my two dreams: either live in Silicon Valley and continue working for Amazon. Or return to India to work on my Startup.
Because, due to how the immigration system worked, I couldn’t work for my own startup while on an H1b visa. My other options were either to wait for 10+ years (as…
We believe being a true maker comes down to three things.
Being true to yourself, being true to your craft and being true to your tribe.
Makers pour out their heart into being true to themselves and true to their craft but what many makers struggle with is how to be true to their tribe.
Or how to even grow their tribe in the first place.
We found that there are two barriers that stop makers from being true to their tribe. There exists a psychological barrier and at the same time, there is a technological gap that needs to…
New. Not the only. Nor the best way since sliced bread. Caveat Emptor.

Curation is a thing humans have been doing since their hunter-gatherer phase. Nice beads, a beautiful rock or a lovely feather for my head-gear.
And fast-forward to today, we visit museums and art galleries which are curated collection arranged on the basis of a theme.
What’s all this got to do with marketing and building an online audience?
Well, the next best thing to highly valuable, actionable, original…
MFY.im has added a new feature to the platform, that allows you to send
up to 5 chosen articles as FB Messenger cards to your FB page subscribers.
Why is this huge?
This opens up an entire new avenue to promote your new and existing evergreen content along with relevant articles that you have curated for your audience and send them personally to each of your Facebook subscribers.
Why Messenger channels?
Most savvy content marketers and bloggers have an email list that their subscribers can signup too. But not everyone prefers email these days as it has become almost synonymous…
Stevenson Erwin Albert, nicknamed SEA, is Captain Planaut’s pet cat.
She is a thoroughbred Steampunk, bought for a princely sum of sixty dollars and service tax from an online seller of virtual cats called Turbosquid.com. You would think that Turbosquid is a seller of sushi, but no, Jiro is the guy for sushi. (One would think Jiro is a seller of Gyros, but One would be wrong again! And Zero would laugh at One and tell him, “I told you so!”.) The Captain thinks, the price was a bargain, considering how Rachel Green paid $1000 dollars for that hissing cat…
I call us Divergents. Our strength as seen by the society is also our biggest weakness as seen by the society. Our unconventional minds. Our brains are wired differently. Not better or worse compared to the normal. Just different. Just like a Intel CPU is wired differently than a Nvidia Graphics card. Intel CPUs can crunch a lot of numbers with accuracy and speed. An Nvidia graphics card can paint beautiful renderings on the big screen.
We are the big picture people. With an imagination that roams freely, even when we are supposed to be focussed at work or school…
