What’s the best route for a freelancer to take? Should you stick closely to one field, carving out a specialist niche for yourself and becoming an expert? Or should you keep your options open, taking a more generalised approach to your work?
In a bid to differentiate themselves from the herd and provide an appeal beyond pure consumerism, many brands are shaping themselves around a higher ‘purpose’. With the rise of the conscientious consumer, ethical appeal is becoming at least (if not more) important as the more general appeal of your product. So it’s not surprising that there’s a lot of chat around ‘marketing with purpose’ right now.
