Branding vs Marketing - Where Should You Start with Taylor Shanklin Missions to Movements

    • Non-Profit

Taylor Shanklin is THE perfect person to talk to about creative trends, branding, and marketing. As the CEO & Founder of Barlele, a brand strategy and content marketing agency, she helps mission-minded companies and nonprofits create the most interesting and powerful brands possible.

Today, Taylor inspires us to audit our branding and marketing efforts from the ground up. What do you want your vibe to be? What actually matters to your audience? Is your content speaking to their aspirations and motivations? Branding and marketing are not the same thing - and they need to be thought about separately. Let’s dig in.
