    Marc Thomas on Launching Creative Marketing Campaigns

    You need to do boring marketing.

    However you cut it, it still works.

    But Marc Thomas, Senior Growth Marketer and Podia, threw me a caveat:

    If everyone is doing the same thing—and sounding the same—then how the hell are you supposed to differentiate?

    Well, Marc helped me answer this question in this episode of Maker Mixtapes.

    You'll learn:

    - What Marc learned marketing a product nobody wanted
    - How he’s powering creative content creation here on LinkedIn
    - As well as the creative campaigns he’s advocating for over at Podia
    - How to use his “Rinse & Repeat” framework to create unique narratives
    - A tongue-in-cheek marketing campaign that never saw the light of day

    And boatloads more.
