Event Details

Learn how to build a marketing strategy that drives sales and customer satisfaction in this seminar with Polsky Center Entrepreneur-in-Residence Melissa Harris, '16. We'll answer questions, such as what is marketing? How is it different from sales? How do marketing and sales work together? When should a business do marketing? And who should do it? What channels should you activate? And how do you know if it's working? We'll also cover the breadth of marketing tactics, and how they should be deployed.
