Jeremy Weisz 2:41
You know, I wanted to start with just give people an overview a little bit about what you do that Color More Lines?
Josh Levine 2:47
Sure. No, that’s a fair question. Thank you. So we are a white glove boutique agency. And what does that actually mean? What that means is that we’re a true partner with the company in terms of running their e-commerce component of their business. And look, you know, advertising agencies are a dime a dozen out there, right? You can actually hire somebody to your advertising. The danger of that if you think about it’s like flying a helicopter, right? If the company is controlling the main blade, right? And an ad agency is doing the rotor, if the main blade and the rotor are out of sync, guess what happens? It crashes, right? So it’s really important. I mean, we’re single throat to choke. We do literally everything white glove meaning, inventory management, logistics, financial dashboarding, forecasting, crisis management, Creative Market Intelligence, reverse engineering, competitors, understanding points of parity, points of differentiation, yes, advertising, one of literally 20 things that we do working with brands.
