May 22, 2023 @ 12:00 - 14:00 CDT

Do you urgently need a marketer to help you grow your business? Many startup founders believe that if they have a Head of Marketing by their side, all their problems will magically disappear. However, before investing in one, you should consider precisely what type of hire you need, how you will interact with them, and what other marketing roles will be required. Our guest speaker Emily Kramer has built the marketing teams of some of the most successful startups from scratch, and in this highly educational webinar, she will share first-hand experience, along with her favorite handy frameworks.

What You’ll Learn:
  • When to hire marketers
  • What mistakes to avoid in selecting your first Head of Marketing
  • How to best work with marketing
