Aaron spends his time helping SaaS companies operating a trial to paid model get more traffic, increase conversions and reduce churn. That has him spend his time figuring how to send the best onboarding emails.

In the last over 2 years, Aaron has managed to help 80+ SaaS companies with their onboarding initiatives, bringing as much as 300% improvement in conversions. To get that good at onboarding and emails, Aaron has had to learn a lot about the art of emails, onboarding or else. When he started, his emails were according to him, flops.

He still steadfastly believes in treating every person who receives an email as a VIP.
