About milbert

I am an MBA with over 10 years of experience in finance. Last year I started an upscale children's clothing line. Our clothing is designed and manufactured in NYC. We are currently in seven boutiques.

We are looking for a marketing professional that can join our team as an equity partner. The marketing professional should be able to review and critique our marketing strategy (including redefining our target market if necessary). We are looking for a professional that can help direct and develop our public relations campaign, help us generate leads and develop a social media strategy that can build online traffic and preferably translate into sales. We would also need help developing our sales strategy (online vs. consumer (through trunk shows and trade shows) vs. trade). We would like to do some promotion (through give aways and preferably remnant advertising) and would need help determining the best risk/reward for our budgeting needs. Expertise in marketing technologies such as web ads, SEO, and google ad words is key. A good understanding of the apparel market is preferable and/or previous experience as a buyer or in PR in the fashion industry would be ideal.
