Making a Marketer

Absolutely Accessible Marketing with Alex Heinrich

February 13, 2021

This is a LANDMARK episode -- number 75! Thank you for being with us through 75 strong, as we look towards the next 75. We LOVE doing this podcast, and feel blessed that you are listening.

I believe people show up in our lives when they are meant to. After watching and listening to the amazing nuggets this guest was sharing online, she was instantly on my radar as a person we had to have on this podcast. 

The work of accessibility in digital marketing is incredibly important "as humans," as Alex states eloquently, but it's also our obligation as digital marketers to be sure as many people as possible see our marketing.

65% of humans might not. If that isn't compelling
enough to learn more, I don't know what would be! 

Every human should be able to read and hear every thing we do as marketers. Full stop. 

Grab a pen and paper for all the tips Alex gives us!!
