This blog post is a heads up that Early Bird Registration for the Content Marketing Retreat: How to Use Content for Marketing Success (15% Discount code for Early Bird only is CMR-FSM) is expiring at midnight, tonight.
Not only is this the first Content-focused marketing and PR event of 2011, it’s the first ever Content Marketing focused event held in the Pacific Northwest.
Why should you care about the Content Marketing Retreat?
After several years of attention focused upon social media channels, attention is now being focused upon the content that gets distributed through those channels. So, whether you’re a marketer, business owner, entrepreneur, or a content creator (writer, photographer, videographer, etc), the Retreat will provide valuable and actionable insight into a facet of contemporary communications practices that will positively impact your businesses and careers.
In just one day our 11 presenters are going to provide the most comprehensive overview of contemporary marketing and PR practices — based upon content creation, curation and distribution — that you can find anywhere. Topics to be covered range from Content Strategy, to Essentials of Storytelling for Brands, to the importance of Personal Branding, to The Role of Print in a Digital World, to How to Work with Journalists for Content Creation, to Measurement and Analytics, and more.
