Idea Grove President Scott Baradell will discuss how to build and engage online audiences during an upcoming professional development program of the PRSA’s Greater Fort Worth chapter. Audience building has been key to making Idea Grove a leading player among Dallas marketing firms.
In promising to discuss practical ways to build and engage online audiences that convert, Scott asks, “If a tree falls in the woods and no one hears it, does it make a sound? What about your blog, social media postings and other content — is it being heard? If you are not systematically building an audience of subscribers and customers, your program is likely not helping you meet your organization’s marketing objectives.”
The program is set for Wednesday, February 13, at the Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth. The morning program begins at 8:30 a.m., followed by lunch at 11:30 a.m. Further details are at www.fortworthprsa.org.
