Jennifer Keishin Armstrong’s writing career almost feels like a modern-day fairytale: the full-time, New York Times bestselling author living in a New York City highrise, writing from an office overlooking water and highrises. But Jennifer’s dream is built with email as her bedrock—ConvertKit helps her reach her audience directly and share her latest creations.

Instead of building a mere persona, ConvertKit helps Srini write what he wants and build a community around his writing.
“Email is the biggest driver of book sales to this day.”Srinivas Rao, author and founder of Unmistakable Creative
