In this episode of the Duct Tape Marketing Podcast, I interview Xenia Muntean. Xenia is the CEO and Co-Founder of Planable, a content review and marketing collaboration platform used by over 5,000 teams behind brands such as Hyundai, Christian Louboutin, Viber, and United Nations. Prior to launching Planable, at 20 y.o. she built a digital marketing agency and led social for clients such as Coca-Cola.
Xenia has been recognized on the Forbes 30 Under 30 list and she spoke on the Innovation Stage at Cannes Lions in 2018. Xenia graduated from Tim Draper’s startup academy in Silicon Valley and took Planable through the Techstars London accelerator in 2017. She has also published a book – The Manifesto on Content Marketing Teams and has launched her own podcast – People of Marketing.
Social media is a marketing channel today that can’t be ignored. The CEO and Co-Founder of Planable, Xenia Muntean, was tired of spending her life in a spreadsheet creating content and juggling managing multiple social media accounts. Instead of continuing to spin her wheels in such a seemingly unproductive workflow, she decided to find and create her own solution to the problem. In this episode, I talk with Xenia about her journey in building Planable, the problems the platform has sought out to solve for so many people, and the many ways you can use Planable in your content planning to enhance your customer journey.
