Leveraging YouTube and PR to Quickly Grow a Brand

Eric Bandholz and the entire team at Beardbrand have built an eCommerce store that sells beard maintenance products to the tune of approximately $60,000 per month! He’s built a brand in a very specific niche: urban beardsmen, the man who wants to grow a beard but isn’t lazy, unkempt, homeless, etc.

Much of their success has come through great PR and marketing, initially through YouTube and now with outsourced PR and marketing companies. Eric shares some of their most successful tactics for success in such a specific niche.
