Marketing to account for sustainability.

Transparency… a big buzzword for impact-driven businesses. But how do brands communicate and market their sustainability initiatives creatively and effectively? Whether you’re on the business side as a small e-commerce owner, or completely on the other side as a consumer trying to be more conscious of the brands you invest in, this episode will help dissect some of the strategies that brands can/will use to boost their transparency and sustainability efforts.

No better way to discuss all things online marketing, as we are joined this week with Erica Larson, Founder and Creative Director of Pixel Power, a digital marketing consultancy firm which helps sustainability-oriented organisations get more brand recognition through website design and online content marketing since 2006.

At Pixel Power, Erica heads project development and serves as creative director for website builds, social media, content marketing, and graphic design projects. With a passion for environment and corporate social responsibility, Erica has found a love for providing marketing support to organisations who focus on sustainable business practices. She states “Our best partnerships are with clients who recognise the importance of and relationship between social equity, a thriving natural environment, and a strong economy.”
