The Humane Marketing Show. A podcast for a generation of marketers who care.

Feb 13, 2020

If setting revenue targets gives you anxiety about launching something new, you are not alone. When we put pressure on ourselves to hit a specific number by the end of a launch, we tend to forget about the people involved. So, what if we reframed the way we thought about marketing a launch? What if we focused on attracting the community we genuinely want to spend time with? What if we played to our strengths to design a launch experience we could LOVE?


This episode falls under the P of Promotion of The Gentle Marketing Mandala.
