Hi new biz friends 👋 has anyone here had any luck with procurement people and getting their attention? Or have you seen any other agencies doing particularly interesting outreach?

Are you asking specifically for procurement/ purchasing folks? Or more outreach to decision makers / heads of marketing ? Most of the general wisdom is around using thought leadership and social media marketing to drive inbound by interested potential clients. But that is super general I know.

Manager gives me hard to solve, complex problems like getting a multi stakeholder project organized. This is not my primary job but the chaos was making progress impossible. I create the solution diagrams, drew up project plan, drove discussions to arrive at tech solutions (the team was in analysis paralysis mode) to land a solution with a hard deadline. When the structures are in place, mgr takes it away from me saying this is not my day job - twice, leaving me angry & confused. Thoughts?

Fishies, I am hiring a partner in crime to help me introduce PETERMAYER to the national stage. This isn't your typical biz dev role - it's designed to be a hybrid/cross-discipline role for someone who wants to use their full creative, strategic brain and most definitely NOT stay in their lane. Know anyone that sounds like that, send them my way! (Agency is full-time flex/hybrid, but a desire to be NOLA-based is strongly preferred; however remote may be negotiable.)
