If you oversee the brand and marketing of an arts, recreation, or entertainment brand you know this to be true: your success hinges on your ability to build community around your purpose. But as a brand and marketing leader or a founder who is responsible for customer acquisition and growth – how do you communicate clearly, and easily that you are responsible for enabling the moments that matter to your customers? Especially in this new topsy-turvy economy? Perhaps you are facing the prospect of increased competition, slower than usual sales, or are asking yourselves how are we going to win new business?
Most marketing teams are being forced to work with reduced budgets and headcount but the expectations for growth are higher than ever. While it may seem like your hands are tied there is one strategy and tactic you can employ that has a big impact for little to no budget: Manifestos.
Join Wildstory founder and chief strategist Marc Gutman as he hosts a one hour webinar on Manifestos: A Marketer’s Secret Weapon.
