CREATIVE CONFERENCE
2020

CAROL GIRARDI
ACS President
Welcome to PROMOTION 101

Many artists miss out on career-altering exposure because they submitted their content to the media in the wrong way or format…this conference will provide guidelines to change this unfortunate reality. This is a rare opportunity to learn from the best! Join us as communication experts from the City of Surrey’s Cultural and Communication Teams, and the Arts & Entertainment Editor/Writer for the iconic cultural tabloid – The Georgia Straight, share their knowledge to successfully increase your creative exposure with traditional and social media platforms.

5P's of Marketing

Product, Price, Promotion, Place, and People – are key marketing elements used to position a business strategically. The 5P’s of Marketing [aka ‘the marketing mix’], are variables controlled by you to satisfy customers in your target market, add value to your business, and help differentiate your business from competitors.Promotion refers to activities that make your business better known to consumers. The better you understand and target your market, you can more effectively spend time and money to reach them. Focusing on the 5Ps will also help you figure out what’s working and what’s not when it comes to marketing your business.
