About The Talk
When you’re in the early stages of your startup, it can be hard to find funds or validate spending money on advertising and marketing. As a workaround, entrepreneurs have found scrappy and creative ways to build brand awareness and acquire new users organically.
Most likely, you’re an entrepreneur on a lean budget. Regardless of whether or not you’ve raised money, you’re acutely sensitive to the limits of what you can do in a pay-to-play world.
Join us on August 18th as we chat with Kaylin Marcotte, Founder & CEO of JIGGY about organic marketing strategies you can do with little to no budget. We’ll dive into how she’s grown JIGGY, and her previous experience building out theSkimm’s ambassador program and running its community marketing and social media.
