Marketing consulting, business development, and content production based on cultural trends, social movements, data-led insights, and common sense strategy.
A NEW KIND OF MARKETING NEWSLETTER.
INSPIRED BY CULTURE, NOT CORPORATIONS.
The Mad Focused Newsletter is curated with love by founder Reb Carlson, a Brooklyn-based marketing consultant helping working creatives and their businesses thrive.
"While NYC was under lockdown during the height of the coronavirus pandemic, I started a weekly newsletter to curate the trends I thought were most relevant for working creatives and business owners today.
Less flashy ad campaigns by global corporations, more inspiration from art, culture, and entertainment. I try to share what I think is most relevant today, and try to predict what the future may look like, especially after COVID-19."
