When you are starting a side hustle, one of the most important things you can do for your business is market. But marketing can get pretty out of control if not planned strategically. The first thing you need to do is make sure your marketing is synergistic with your sales plan. 

Years ago, I worked for an ad agency in San Diego. Out of the blue someone called our office and asked to speak to the media buyer – which was me. I answered the call and it was a local plumber, who serviced commercial buildings and businesses. He wanted to know if we could create an ad for his business to shine on the side of building at night – because he saw this done in Las Vegas the weekend before and thought it was clever. 

So I asked him, “This particular ad would only be seen during evening

TikTok Launches In-App Guide On U.S. Elections

Topline

TikTok has launched an elections guide within its mobile app that will offer information about candidates, how to vote in each state, and educational videos, a move that comes amidst a legal battle with the Trump administration which is attempting to ban the app unless it cedes control of its local business to a U.S. firm.
