Play • 1 hr 52 min

In this episode, Alex Birkett talks to Ilona Abramova who is VP of Operations at AppSumo, and an absolute genius at email marketing and copywriting.

This convo is very different from our other Long Game episodes. First, Ilona and AppSumo are a client of Omniscient’s. Second, Ilona’s a friend and someone who shares Alex’s divergent and semi-ADD tendencies in conversation (according to Alex himself).

Finally, instead talking about content marketing or diving into Ilona’s background, he thought it would be cool to do a live consultation. In this episode, Ilona teaches Alex how Omniscient should be doing email marketing.

If you’re building your email marketing program from scratch or revamping it for more ROI, you’ll find this useful. It’s also just a fun exploration of ideas that also touches upon email marketing best practices that anyone can use to increase the effectiveness of their program.

Look at this as a masterclass on email, as well as a look behind the curtains at what it’s like getting consulted from a master email marketer. 

Ilona Abramova is the VP of Operations at AppSumo, a digital marketplace dedicated to empowering entrepreneurs to start and grow their business. Previously Head of Content, she's obsessed with all things written (her speciality is email - & you can shoot her one at When she’s not silently correcting people's grammar, she’s traveling the world in search of the best matcha, having long existential conversations, or doing the New York Times Crossword.

The Long Game is hosted by Alex Birkett and David Ly Khim who co-founded Omniscient Digital to help companies ranging from early-state to scale-ups with growth strategy, SEO, and content marketing. Allie Decker, Head of Content, joins the conversation as well.
