DTC: Content Creation with Daniel Snow

Direct-to-Consumer companies sell their products without going through a traditional middleman like an outlet store or wholesaler. By posting content on platforms like TikTok, Facebook, and YouTube, companies can reach millions of users.TikTok, for example, has an estimated 1 billion monthly active users (wallaroomedia).

The company Kindred Studios helps direct-to-consumer companies create consistent, beautiful content that holds viewers’ attention and generates sales. They showcase your products’ fine details and selling points with product videos, mood photography, stop motion videos, texture photography, and many other content categories.

In this episode, we talk to Daniel Snow, Co-Founder of Kindred Studios, as well as The Snow Agency. He specializes in the eCommerce space and joins us to discuss social media and content creation.
