Back to Basics: A 75-Minute Communications Bootcamp

Do you ever feel as though you are throwing lots of stuff at the wall and just seeing what sticks when it comes to PR and marketing? Do you sometimes hear media buzzwords and wonder how to keep up in a world of constantly changing communications tactics? You are not alone! Even seasoned pros need to get back to the basics from time to time.

In this session, we will break down the major types of communications, from paid, to owned, to earned media, and explore how these mediums can be used to tell the story of you, your wines, your winery, your grapes, or your brand. We will define key pillars of public relations, social media, and influencer marketing and learn from top pros who are effectively leveraging these marketing tools for their businesses.

We will explore topics like:

How and when to use wine influencers and how to ensure you are getting proper ROI when partnering with them.
What is PR and what does a smart public relations program look like.
How to build your social media strategy.
What are the rules and regulations surrounding the promotion of wine through media.
How to realistically track ROI on communications programs.
We will leverage case studies from a team of professionals in PR, marketing, social media, and influencer relations, to uncover best practices when it comes to creating powerful and effective PR and marketing programs that not only drive awareness, but sales.
