Angel Mason Broadus On Brand

“What we’re finding in nonprofit marketing today is that it’s really about helping people see the impact they’re having.” As co-owner of Puzzle Pieces Marketing, Angel Mason Broadus has built her career at the intersection of social impact and social good. However, she was quick to note that this takes a lot of work—often accomplished in what she calls “small bites.” We discussed all of this and more on this week’s episode of the On Brand podcast.

Episode Highlights

What led Angel and Puzzle Pieces to their nonprofit focus? “We started with small businesses and solopreneurs but over time we wanted to focus more and more on what makes us happy.” For Angel and Kristine, that led to their nonprofit/social good focus.

What’s the biggest difference in nonprofit marketing? “It’s all about helping people realize the impact they’re having versus the heavy story. Especially today.”

What brand has made Angel smile recently? Angel pointed to one of my favorite smile-worthy brands—Dollar Shave Club!
