Reliable creative services are not accessible to the small business owner
Online communication has never been more critical for small businesses, but the creative supply chain to access the content needed is disconnected and outdated. Without reliable creative services, small businesses are losing income potential and are putting their business at risk.
At the same time, creative professionals are underserved and undervalued leaving 50% struggling with cash flow, project management, and customer service.
