Wow. Backbone is an absolute game-changer.

“After spending 8+ years building an 8-figure DTC brand, email marketing always took up tens of hours of marketing team time & resources. It’s so helpful to be able to plan & adjust an email marketing calendar quickly, and pass email templates to creatives. I wish Backbone existed when I got started. It would have shortcut a lot of time needed to scale up our email marketing growth.”

With Backbone, I can plan a whole month’s worth of email campaigns & flows, create email templates, make notes and pass it off to my team to design in literally minutes. It’s by far one of the most useful tools in our daily workflow & has allowed us to scale our email marketing”.
