Building a Genuine Brand (Part 2)

On the previous episode, Ben Jenkins from One Fast Buffalo and Warstic has shared so much valuable insight to building a branding experience, that we had to break it into a two-part series.  In this second half of the interview, Ben dives into the details of manufacturing and talks about the strength of the Warstic’s community.

Warstic, a wood bat manufacturing company, was launched in 2011. In 3 years, Warstic has been featured in big name magazines like GQ, Fortune, and The Wall Street Journal. The jaw-dropping fact of it all: Ben didn’t spend a dime on marketing!

Tune in to learn what Ben intentionally focused on to build a company so strong, that it continues to knock numbers out of the ballpark!

    “Is this product worth putting out in the world?” – Ben Jenkins

    That’s a great way to go about thinking about what you create. The story about the email he got telling him that a little boy is sleeping with the bat under his pillow, that’s just awesome.
