I Have Questions!

Who are you?


You don’t have the time to do outreach yourself. I help independent product creators, like you, grow their audience. I help get influencers to share your products with their audience by taking care of the details: looking after your most valuable relationships and building new ones. 

I love meeting new people. My phone number is (503) 902-8169. My name is Kai. You can read more about me, if you’d like.

I heard about [blog post / product / amazing thing] at MicroConf! You should link to it here!

Okay! Email me at kai@kaidavis.com or tweet me at @kaisdavis and I’ll get it added!
