If you are struggling, please reach out.  I know as soon as times get tough, "marketing" seems to be one of the first expenses to go.  Marketing positions have a tendency to be eliminated first...which makes zero sense.  Or, the budget for marketing is cut because it is down to paying for the lights to stay on or paying for that next ad.  That right there was my reality for several years.

My job was to sell and find the biggest ways to make money for the company.  But there was a catch.  My budget = zero dollars.  When funds are limited, you have to think outside of the box, try new things, and it can work. Marketing might be a bit overwhelming and change is tough - I get it - but marketing can be magical if you are surrounded by the right people, tools, and resources.

Reach out.  I know amazing people that can help.  You can find me at jessica.williams@townsquaremedia.com.
