1. Field Marketing is More Than Just Events
Sruthi: When people just equate field marketing with events, I'm like, “okay, well, you know, the field marker you're working with, maybe he didn’t do it justice,” because really you're running a digital campaign through and through. Even when we were meeting physically, even when we were meeting in person, we were like, we had to be the masters of the digital campaign. So for out of the box, we've done a ton of emails. Like how else are you really supposed to reach people these days? We do a lot of social. And so we have a great content team and we've really utilized like video and media. That's something that we've seen a lot of our followers, uh, prospects and customers interact really well with.

And so in my personal life and my professional life, that's helped me a lot, like meet the right people and make the right connections.
