Leah Frazier, CEO, Think Three Media

Many entrepreneurs budget for the product itself, the team, the equipment, and everything else. However, many fail to budget properly for marketing and public relations. When the product is launched, it typically fails to build momentum because a proper campaign was never put into place. This workshop will teach entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs small, cost-efficient PR and media strategies to assist with product launches and other newsworthy or trend-specific aspects of their businesses.

Having a proper communications strategy assists with overall sales, customer attraction, lead generation, and can also be another component to attract potential investors.
