How To Grow A Construction Newsletter To 1,000 Subscribers

The construction industry isn’t great at marketing. So anytime I find someone creating content that isn’t only really good, but extremely entertaining, it gets my attention right away. I got to chat with Matt Graves of Construction Yeti where we unpacked his construction newsletter strategy that has grown to over 1800+ subscribers. What’s crazy is that Matt isn’t a traditional marketer himself. He’s a Construction Management Professional full-time. And has built Construction Yeti on the side. We also discussed marketing in construction, sharing upcoming content ideas, and even his hot take on ConTech marketing (which is a very spicy take).
