Episode 007: Mastering Brand Sponsorships & Collaborations with Morgan Molitor (Part 1)
Meet Morgan Molitor
Morgan is one half and co-founder of construction2style, and wife to Jamie Molitor. Morgan wanted to create construction2style (or c2s for short) to document Jamie’s first fixer upper and show people just how easy they could DIY too. She started solely writing but was quickly swinging a hammer alongside Jamie too.
Graduating from a college in Long Beach, CA with a fashion merchandising and marketing degree, Morgan has now taken that creativity and knowledge to use within client homes and their blog. Morgan oversees all the content creation, is the writing guru, and lead interior stylist for construction2style. She also heads up their online education courses and monthly marketing workshops.
As a business owner, she wears a lot of hats but her expertise is in collaboration, always thinking about 100 different ways to optimize any project they’re working on.
Morgan doesn’t have any type of interior design certification, but thanks to digital marketing and her passion for interiors, she’s been able to build a successful interior design + contracting business, that includes certified designers on their team.
She’s a forward thinker, a risk taker, and isn’t scared to tell you that the tile you picked out is really outdated. But will still install it happily for you! You can always find an infectious smile on her face and hear her contagious laugh.
How many of you follower influencers across different industries, wondering to yourself how, you too, could work with brands & what that would mean for you as a designer
You’d love to be the face of a brand you believe in, even if it’s only for a moment, but you’re a designer, not an influencer… right?
But you don’t have to take my word for it, because I know that after listening to my conversation with Morgan — one of my new favorite people, ever! — you’re going to be left so motivated, you won’t even know what to do with yourself.
Talking to Morgan I learned lot , and this conversation is so good that it’s one of a two!
In today’s first half, we’re talking all about…
hiring a team in preparation for growth
the power in pitching brands (and not waiting for them)
what it’s really like when you’re working with & creating content for brands
While you’re listening, be sure to screenshot the episode & tag The Design Influence & construction2style on Instagram or on our Facebook page, so we can keep the conversation going! I’d love to know what your biggest takeaway from today’s show was.
