This allows Katja to take strategic lead on marketing and communications activities for Happy Textiles Bazaar to help them to grow in 2019 and beyond. This was a perfect solution for HTB with Katja’s extensive combined experiences of building advocacy communities for brands, running media platforms, webshops and creating global marketing strategies and campaigns.

Presnal5 became a strategic partner, and as a member of the Happy Textiles ecosystem will be providing marketing, content creation, and strategy services also for Happy Textiles ecosystem members in the textile technology industry.
We started by making a new website happytextiles.fi for Happy Textiles Bazaar. Happy Textiles Bazaar already had an excellent backend built for the market place and member management by Polea, but we helped with the frontend to create a new WordPress site. The WordPress platform will work as a fast and easy solution as a frontend MVP for the first 1-2 years as the company grows.
VIDEO & CONTENT PRODUCTION
We offer short tail and long tail content creation for Happy Textiles. One of the important projects is Happy Textiles China Market Program, which contains one-week bootcamp in Fuzhou, and China accelerator program. The content production for this project included interview videos (for YouTube and IGTV), social media content, photos, and blog posts.
