We began pitching reporters in Chicago and our success translated into also pitching national outlets. As the brand grew, we also were tapped to target micro-influencers that could proliferate our growing holiday results. In 2022 the brand began to fundraise and we also started supporting the B2B side of their business by improving the credibility of the company and founders in the business press and online, namely via LinkedIn and via interviews with industry podcasts.
