Why Your Marketing Needs Lightning Strikes with Matt Bertulli, CEO of Pela

On this episode, we spoke with Matthew Bertulli, CEO of Pela, an eCommerce brand that’s on a mission to unf*ck the earth. Matt’s keen eye for product R&D and growth opportunities have already resulted in an exit for his award-winning company Demac Media. Although his career first began as a software developer who hated marketing, Matt eventually decided it was so important to learn more since marketing is what drives consumer demand.

Years later, he still looks at marketing a little differently than your typical brand marketer with a college degree. We talk about the cause for that, why lightning strikes should be a part of your marketing strategy, how they work, and what makes Matt hate the term positioning. He even gives some contextual examples of well-executed lightning strikes by brands out there, and explains how this extreme focus, 2-3x per year, ties in with the other ‘peanut butter style marketing’.
