Codeless eComm platform Elliot is creating a lot of buzz in the eCommerce world right now, and with good reason. Co-founder and Head of Marketing, Marco Marandiz, is a veteran of the consumer tech space, and he’s all about using that experience to push the market into exciting, unexplored territory.

This conversation digs into the ways that commerce is revolutionizing right now. Kristen and Marco go deep on multichannel marketing, brand building, entering a vertical with really established competition, using social media channels natively, and so much more.
