Advertising is evolving.

Your customers crave stories. Recommendations influence decision-making and purchases. Traditional media buys are being replaced by the appeal, share-ability, longevity, and engagement of influencer-style marketing.

Appeal to your customers with editorial advertising.

Content creation includes photo shoot, optimized article, and video about your business. Content will be featured in print guide, website, list features, email, and social media.

The new Good Taste Guide platform offers both content creation and the channels to reach your customers.

About the creator

Good Taste Guide was created by Hatton Gravely. In 2019, Hatton was featured in Grand Strand Magazine, and here’s the interview:

Describe your style: Classic and colorful. My mother taught me when I was younger that style is an important reflection of the impression you want to make. 

Signature look: Teal on Tuesdays! 

What do your outfits say about you? I have an artsy and creative side, so I gravitate toward color. My goal is to look professional and polished, but not boring!

Favorite designer and why: Jude Connally’s flattering, wrinkle-free dresses that can be tossed in the washer and dryer are my favorites! 

What item in your closet brings you the most joy? Tory Burch wedges, a gift from my mom and a gift to my feet. 

Your style icon: Reese Witherspoon, who is as smart as she is stylish. I love her company, Draper James, but mostly love her voice as an advocate for women. 

What are your hobbies? I love to spend time with my family: Will and I have two extraordinary children, Thomas and Mary Chase, plus a new puppy named Riley, the most chill Golden Retriever on the planet. I love photography, travel, reading, podcasts, decorating, family and wine, which I blog about on GoodTasteGuide.com!
