Why Fortune 500's need agile creative solutions

Starbucks used Glimmer to discover videographers across different cities. They were producing a branded content series called Community Upstanders for YouTube and needed skilled professionals on the ground.

Before long, both Starbucks' in-house and external communication teams leveraged Glimmer's content services. These included vertical videos, branded documentaries, writing, and photography.

All these different teams needed a fast and easy way to find, hire, and pay multimedia creators worldwide. Glimmer saved them money and time so they could focus on executing their brand message and content strategy.
