14 - Ryan Hayward: Add Value First

Creatively Brief

This week I had the chance to sit down and talk to the founder and CEO of Pitchproof and the virtual design conference, Frontrow. At a young age, Ryan knew he had an entrepreneurial and creative drive that set him apart. With that, he jumped all into the creative field as a freelance graphic designer, eventually finding a hole in the design market for a better way to present logos to clients and that's how Pitchproof was born. From there Ryan has focused on providing value and building a community for his audience and built Frontrow to do just that. In our conversation, we talked about building both Pitchproof and Frontrow, the key to building a true and engaged audience on social media and how important it is that you provide value for your audience above all else. Make sure you check out both Ryan's social media and Pitchproof's social media below: Pitchproof: @usepitchproofRyan's account: @theryanhayward Learn more about Frontrow2020 here: https://www.frontrow.design/A huge thank you to Ryan as well for offering all of you 10% off your purchase of a ticket to Frontrow2020 with code: CREATIVELYBRIEF!
