Startup Marketing: It's More Than a Twitter Account

A session at SXSW Interactive 2011

Tuesday 15th March, 2011

11:00am to 1:30pm (CST)

Have you ever looked at the Sky Mall catalog and say to yourself "How have I gone this long without an ankle air conditioner?"

Probably not but the fact is that there are a lot of start ups and more will be formed before you finish reading this description. It's getting harder and harder to get the attention you need to prosper and reach your prospective audience but that doesn't mean it is impossible!

This talk is going to cover a few tricks and tips for actually marketing your business from a start up perspective and you may be surprised that this talk isn't going to be all about Social Media!

LEVEL: Intermediate
