Though the holiday weekend was busy, I squeezed in two listens. The first one is connected to Merch by Amazon, something Charlie and I have been looking at getting into as an additional source of revenue. As a designer I’ve got more artwork than I could use in a lifetime simply sitting around collecting dust, so this seems like a natural fit. We’re coming a bit late to the game but there still appears to be some great opportunity there. The second listen is connected to building out a channel on YouTube. Again, it’s something I’ve been looking at for awhile for the Agency as a way to share tutorials and research collected over the years for small business clients. Enjoy!
