Over the last year we have spoken with hundreds of small businesses and startups to assess what features they need the most. We now have a plan for how to meet those expectations.

How the Flock Got Started
The construction of 150birds was initiated by our CEO, Rick Koletavitoglu. He got his start in marketing 10 years ago and has kept up with monitoring the ever shifting trends in the field. Traditional media formats transitioned to digital platforms, and now digital platforms are being overtaken by social media sites. The ever present key to Rick’s success has been his ability to observe and adapt.
In 2018 Rick moved to Silicon Valley and began consulting for early startup companies. While working on their projects Rick formed a team of freelancers. He noticed as the requests were coming in, that these startups had common needs. As more and more companies began asking for his assistance Rick realized that there is a definite limit to what a single team is capable of producing. This is when the idea came to him for 150birds. His industry changing idea was to form a marketing service that would put multiple clients in touch with their own team of freelancers.
At the start of 2020 Rick set out to begin this new company. His first step was talking with potential clients in order to get a thorough understanding about what it is they needed most. After speaking with hundreds of business owners and making countless product iterations, Rick and his team are now ready to unveil their closed beta of the 150birds platform!

The skies of the marketing world are vast. For a small business owner it can be difficult just figuring out where to start. Luckily 150birds is here to help. We have staff members on the ready who will be able to assist you in choosing where to begin marketing and in forming a new team.
At 150birds we don’t just make starting your marketing journey easier, we do it at a lower cost point than an ad agency. Our prices are straightforward, with no hidden fees and no questionable tactics. We make a team sized to your budget and tailored to your project requirements. An ad agency has a fixed team size, and while they are often skilled it is never certain that they will have a specialist in the exact field you are looking for. At 150birds we have a flock full of freelancers, each specializing in unique sectors of the marketing world. With us, your team will always be filled with the perfect members to complete your job.
If you are on your own, finding just one skilled freelancer is a difficult task. It can take up to ten active hours of searching online to come across a single freelancer with the background that matches your requirements. That doesn’t even cover the amount of time necessary to interview, test, and get to know the applicant. Multiply that by the size of the team that you need, and you get a challenge that is outrageously complex. Luckily with 150birds we take care of all that for you. We are constantly vetting and onboarding new freelancers to our flock, ensuring that we’ll have the right specialists for need possible. Within moments of your project being submitted our 150birds support team will be pooling together freelancers for your team.

Our Platform Supports Multiple Industries
If you aren’t convinced that 150birds is the service for you, compare yourself to these business models that benefit the most from 150birds. Each sector of business has corresponding marketing tactics. These examples may not be exactly what your company needs, but our 150birds specialists will be able to help talk you through which services are best suited for your industry.
Up first are restaurants. Given the current marketplace, restaurants who don’t have a digital presence are at a devastating disadvantage. Covid has shut the doors of countless restaurants, and those who have managed to remain open have had to shift focus to take-out and delivery. To help them 150birds has improved their websites, made social media accounts, and placed geo-targeted ads in their cities.

Next we have B2B businesses. Even these businesses have been affected by Covid-19. There are now fewer in person conferences where connections can be made. To make up for lost ground, B2B businesses have been needing direct methods of client acquisition with email outreach, highly informative blog posts, and journalist articles. These methods allow for the audience to make informed decisions, which is essential for the large purchases that B2B requires.
The last business model is subscription services like the Dollar Shave Club. These businesses are still very new to the consumer marketplace, and more of them are popping up each day. Their marketing spend is best focused on social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram, though if they are design orientated Pinterest is also highly viable. For more information about the benefits and functions of social media platforms you can read this post. On these platforms brand cultivation is key. They also benefit greatly from influencer referrals, where they get social media stars to hype up their subscriptions.
