Thanksgiving Week

Welcome back for another  week and this week’s the biggest online shopping week of the year!

We have exciting projects and opportunities in the work and we’ll cover it all in this week’s kick off session!

Check out last week’s recap and come join us to a great start in today’s 12pm EST session on

Hope to see you there!

What Happened Last Week?

Another productive week in the books!

We had incredible progress in all fronts implementing team meetings that really help us solidify our movement towards our goals. Meetings are free for anyone to join so want to partake in the growth, check out the schedule at the bottom of this email.

What we covered:

The idea of creatives with social media is knowing how to target the audience you want in each platform.

Pinterest gives you more freedom than Facebook, but you still have limitations and the funnels will look different.

You still have to capture your audience in that crucial first 3 seconds (by creating thumb stopping ads) or you have lost your potential customers no matter the platform.

Most people throw around the word luck because they don’t understand how a person ended up gaining such wonderful opportunities at success. However, luck is nothing more than when hard work meets opportunity.

Black Friday: the biggest shopping weekend of the year is here!  

In 2020, Black Friday is going to exist primarily online. Which means, as a marketer, it’s critical you prepare marketing materials ahead of time to ensure you’re able to break through the noise.

Some tips to follow:
*  Keep your messaging simple and friendly
*  Don’t stick to only email – use all of your channels
*  Use power words that sell
*  Optimize for search engines
*  Use good product images
*  Run hourly or daily flash sales
*  Offer to donate a percentage of sales to charity.

One company that is taking advantage of Black Friday this Q4 season is The Young Hippie.

This week our Feature Friday was one of our community members JLA, discussing his music and debuting his new music video!

We also learned how he balances his freelance digital marketing to help support his musical dreams!
