People of Play has announced its first series of quarterly educational webinars targeting industry marketing and PR pros. The first session will be April 21st from 1pmET -4pmET; the session will kick-off with a keynote speaker (TBA) followed by break-out sessions on topics requested by attendees. Topics have been vetted from both agency and brand view point. The session will end with networking in the virtual POP Pub.
After its success within the inventors’ community, POP founder Mary Couzin looked for a way to bring the same level of insight and education to the industry’s marketing executives and, along with Michele Litzky (LPR), asked other agency and brand representatives to form a committee that could identify speakers of interest to the group along with topics that could be important conversation starters.
After a survey asking marketing and PR pros about the need for a regular events where they could learn, share and network, the results were unanimous! So, save the date – April 21st– for the kick-off event for the People of Play Webinars!
Some of the session topics for the first event will include:
· Influencer Engagement and Collaborations
· Affiliate Marketing
· Digital Marketing| SEO / SEM
· eMail Marketing, Influencer Collaborations
· Social Media Trends and Best Practices
· Earned Media and Influencer Pitching / Press Releases
An exciting keynote is in the works and there will be networking in the POP Pub after the breakout sessions.
