SUMMARY:
What's the point of having a catchy tagline if it doesn't attract customers? Why do direct mail if it doesn't produce high-quality leads? Why invest in PR if it doesn't translate into increased awareness? Laura Lowell, author of '42 Rules of Marketing,' will address these questions and more in a series of individual marketing rules that are as entertaining as they are enlightening. The rules cover topics like: * Plan a little so you can do a lot more (Rule 3)
* Admit when you make a mistake (Rule 13)
* PR doesn?t mean press release (Rule 27)
* Deliver what you promise (Rule 39)

As marketing professionals, you know what you should be doing?you should have a marketing plan; you should test your messages; you should track and measure everything. Yet how many of you actually do all of these things? Laura draws on her almost 20 years of marketing experience to produce a fun, practical approach to improving the quality of your marketing.

NOTE: All attendees will be given a free copy of 42 Rules of Marketing! Join us and learn about the power of 42.

    She had a lot of great information but a more structured presentation would have been better with Q/A at the end.

    The venue and speaker are great. The snacks are not healthy.

    The speaker was terrific, the topic timely and the networking was excellent. The only change I would make is the meeting was at 5:30 and there were just some thrown together snacks. Most people come straight from work, I suggest adding snacks more like veggies, cheese, crackers, or something more substantial to prevent sugar highs and lows. Helps keep the brain focused better on the topic.

    Laura's comment last night that "public relations companies are dead," ignores the importance of PR agency in the marketing mix. Not only does the agency often provide a "slant" to the story that makes it newsworthy, but the agency also establishes and maintains connections and relationships. They also facilitate press interviews. Yes, anyone can put a press release out on the wire for relatively little cost, but too often it's what the company wants to talk about and not what's news. Also, PR has a great importance to add legs to advertising campaigns. Viral marketing can be a form of PR.
