“Content Marketing – What to Say and How to Say it to Keep your Audience Engaged” with instructor Mckenna Hallett will be held on Tuesday, June 27, from noon to 1 p.m. (Q&A until 1:30).

Learn to use both words and images to craft your marketing messages, as well as how to grow your influence with your clients and nurture deeper relationships. What you say, and the way you say it (tone, date and time, frequency), is how you will attract, engage and be share-worthy to your audiences. E-mails, blogs, social media posting – everything depends on what you put in front of prospects and devoted fans.

Hallett is a professional marketing consultant, wordsmith and owner of MyGoldenWords.com.
