When it comes to today's PR world, it's all about the buzz. That
particularly viral kind of word of mouth marketing that means big brand
recognition and even bigger sales.
But, how do you build that buzz? How do you keep it going? How do you transition a PR campaign from traditional media to new media? And, how do you convince clients that all this tweeting and texting and typing is totally worth it? These are just a few of the topics we'll be covering at our latest Girls in Tech LA panel -- The Buzz: PR & Marketing 3.0.
The panel kicks off at 7, followed by cocktails and plenty of time to enjoy them. There will also be a full bar menu. And, we're very excited to be hosting this event at Hollywood hot spot H.Wood.
According to Citysearch, "this small, plush hideout has a loungey vibe with brown leather couches and low-lit vintage chandeliers. Inside the 1920s-esque bar and lounge, the see and be seen and celeb crowd plays chess on boards strewn on tables, shakes their hips on the upstairs dance floor, and snacks on upscale comfort food."
