Marketing Mistakes
(And How to Avoid Them) Podcast

Welcome to Marketing Mistakes & How To Avoid Them. I’m Stacy Jones, the founder of influencer marketing and product placement agency Hollywood Branded. We help bring the power of pop culture to brands, and believe that bringing brands, content, celebrities and influencers together makes storytelling more meaningful and impactful. My original podcast series focused on influencer and content marketing strategies, and I now also interview other top experts to share their insights and knowledge on topics which make a direct impact on your business today. I truly understand as an agency owner and brand marketer that it is impossible to be well-versed on every topic and strategy that can improve bottom line results. My goal is to help you avoid making costly mistakes of time, energy or money along the pathway to bettering your brand whether you are doing a DIY approach or hiring an expert to help.
