Rick Shant Koletavitoglu is the Founder and CEO of 150birds, an omnichannel marketing platform assisting small businesses through tailored strategies. Rick founded CreatorDen, which became a leading marketing program working with brands such as Netflix, Wella, Pantene, and Procter & Gamble. While working as a freelance marketing consultant in Silicon Valley, Rick spotted a gap in the market for recruiting and managing specialists through marketplaces. This led him to create 150birds. Now, he works with small companies to develop strategies and curate a custom “flock” of freelance experts for each business.
Today, Rick recounts his emergence in the marketing industry and shares his belief that marketing is broken today. He reveals the most effective marketing strategies in the coming years and the top reasons marketing activities fail for small businesses. He explains why marketing tools are essential and how the gig economy has changed the marketing landscape. Rick also discloses what the knowledge economy is and how the customer journey map has changed.
“This next decade is all about the knowledge economy coming online.” – Rick Shant Koletavitoglu
