What happens when your brand isn't just about sales and revenue?

What if you made decisions based on a strong belief system and an aspiration for a healthier life for the consumer?

Kara Goldin, Founder and CEO of Hint, Inc. (Where my hint water fans at?), strongly believes in this approach.

That's why she aims to help her consumers make healthier choices.

In this episode of Driving Brand Growth, Kara proves that anything is possible with a lot of curiosity and a bit of courage.

Her career started at Time magazine and CNN. She then went on to become the youngest VP of America Online.

After having 3 children, Kara started to pay more attention to her family’s health. She became interested in the ingredients of the products they were consuming. Kara suddenly realized that not everything is as it seems.

If you want an insider’s perspective into the food and beverage industry, join us for this episode, it's a great one!

As a savvy marketer, you know that your competitors invest heavily in content marketing.

And, not just because it makes them look good or feel good ;).

They do it because content marketing is 62% less expensive than outbound while generating 200% more leads. (Source: Content Marketing Institute)

Content is uniquely effective, but it can be overwhelming. Believe me, I know.

I've had to hone new content marketing skills, study an emerging platform and curate booming influencers on a daily basis.

If you're not a marketing agency or a creative shop, trying to keep up gets discouraging. Even Google outsources.

Most companies' Content Team consists of just a few Creatives. Better than nothing, but unscalable. Don’t fall for the “in-house content trap”.

Lemonade helps you scale by increasing your creative and marketing bandwidth.

You have to go the extra mile.

That's why I insist on strategy and discovery consultations before any engagement and why I swim laps at 6 AM every morning. Apart from my family, nothing fuels me like telling a good story and delivering results that impact brand and business goals.

Many agencies can talk shop but fail to deliver meaningful results and engagement.

To stay focused on your bottom line, Lemonade has built a process to measure, analyze, and guarantee results.

In 2019, you need a content strategy that includes:

- Awe-inspiring videos, pictures, and design

- A distribution and performance strategy

- Community building

We provide that, and so much more.
