1 Thought from the Team

If your marketing team is lean, it’s much better to focus your marketing efforts on just a few effective channels rather than trying to do everything. Find out where your target audience hangs out and what they value — it might be reliability, innovation, convenience, or something else — and develop your strategy accordingly. For a campaign push, you might not even need a full-time team, just a project manager and a team of freelancers hired on a contract basis.
