The MAG Collective

2018-05-23_2052.png

MAG is an Impact Collective comprised of vetted, hand-selected members: experts, thought leaders, and do-ers.

For decades, we have individually been helping organizations, companies, and individuals create lasting impact.  

Now we are partnering to create an even greater impact - working with you to better serve and create a thriving future. Collectively, we have over 170+ combined years experience. 

Our innovative model allows us to better serve clients - more experienced and connected than hiring a team of independent contractors, and more effective, efficient, and transparent than hiring a traditional agency.

Current market estimates state that the freelance / gig economy is 33% of the US workforce and could be as much as 50% by 2025. There is a huge rise in freelance and independent contractor work, yet hiring individuals from sites like UpWork or Remote.com for companies and brands present all sorts of problems. The individuals may be inexperienced, have never worked together, and require a lot of time and project management. 

Not to mention, the traditional agency model is old and tired. Agencies are constantly scaling up and down, misrepresenting clients, facing layoffs, and are no longer suited to meet clients rapidly changing needs. 

Thus, enter MAG, the Impact Collective.
