You believe in the psychology of marketing, of getting into the headspace and the mindset of the person you are targeting. Seeing your campaign from their perspective allows you to achieve extraordinary results. You love to dig into results, to figure out why something worked. You have a knack for identifying patterns and making connections that you then apply to the next campaign, the next channel, the next test. You have a mind for the granular and for the grand. You think about how to get your campaign to appeal to the market at large, while keeping in mind the smallest detail that will be key to outsized success. You believe in doing manual work, “things that don’t scale”, in relentless pursuit of figuring out what works. And once you’ve figured out what works, you doggedly break it down into its component pieces, into a new process and system, so that you can in fact scale it. ****
