Maintaining Effective Operations with Joshua Johnston

In Episode 120 of the Lion’s Share Marketing Podcast, Tyler and Jon discuss the recent events causing Peleton’s stock to drop and the importance of ensuring product placement opportunities aren’t detrimental to a brand’s image.
Tyler is joined by Josh Johnston, founder of 321 Pocket Ops, to discuss how to effectively scale operations, the effects of inflation and the talent acquisition war on the PR and marketing landscape, and tips for brands on evaluating the agencies they partner with. 

Josh’s final thought to listeners is to utilize P&L as the main metric as success in lieu of attribution as challenges loom for the industry. Josh emphasizes the importance of transparency for both brands and agencies to build strong relationships with one another.
