It’s been a few months since I discovered a new video prospecting tool called Tolstoy. Most of my last emails and LinkedIn posts have been about the use cases I have discovered while I was using the tool.
I heard about Tolstoy for the first time in a coaching call I was having with one of my students. I went to the website and loved that the tool was free (it still is, but that won’t be the case forever).
The team is currently identifying the product/marketing fit and focusing on collecting data from different ICPs. They chose to keep the product free while they are doing that, which I find brilliant.

I’ve been working with the leadership, the growth team, and the product team and I love the dynamic of the group.
When we jump on calls together, everyone shows up in the coworking space in Tel Aviv and they throw questions, observations. They also work hard on pushing killer features and the tool is really robust.
Also, being originally from the South of France, I love the Mediterranean approach to life and work, and I can definitely find it with the team.
If you’re interested in trying Tolstoy and providing feedback on how you use it, and what you want to see in the tool, I have two options:
