Now Introducing #MiniKnit – Digital Marketing Consulting Services

Now Introducing #MiniKnit - Digital Marketing Consulting Services

Now Introducing #MiniKnit – Digital Marketing Consulting Services At Knit, we talk to many small business owners and entrepreneurs who are in a grey area of deciding whether to outsource their digital marketing efforts or keep them in-house. This can be a tough decision to make based on time available, skill level, budget, and more than anything – the interest to do the work. For small teams with small budgets, we generally recommend keeping things in-house. This helps the startup define and develop their voice, test what works and doesn’t work, and have more of a direct relationship with their customers. For those teams, we’ve developed #MiniKnit – which is everything we do for our monthly clients, but in a […]

Documenting History in Women’s History Month

Documenting History in Women's History Month

Documenting History in Women’s History Month As we wrap up Women’s History Month, I wanted to take a moment to recognize the women that are making history as our first employees ever! We tend not to think of our current situation as “history,” but in fact, it is. Paris and Nyana are building their own stories and contributing to the stories of Knit Marketing. We already can look back on the days of running around the USC campus, looking for the best quiet workspaces and all over LA looking for the best coffee shops as our temporary office space. In only 10 months, we feel like we’ve come pretty far. It was not intentional to select only female interns when we started […]
