What is your 2022 Marketing Playbook?
For brands in the $1 million and $25 million annual revenue range, it often doesn’t make sense to hire a full-time CMO (Chief Marketing Officer).

Influencers VS Creators: What’s the Difference?
You want to hire someone to promote your product(s) on social media. Where do you start? First, let’s understand the difference between a creator and an influencer.
An influencer isn’t a dirty word, although people still cringe at the thought of it. It describes someone who has many followers on any social media platform and leverages that platform to make money – usually by promoting and selling products.
A creator, however, is someone who creates engaging content including videos, photography, blogs, and art of all kinds. This content is then utilized on a brand’s social media and/or website. So, which one should you hire? The real question you should be asking is “which one is my target audience following?” When you truly understand your target audience, you’ll be better positioned to find the person for your business.
