June 2017 Program

Right Person, Right Message, Right Time: Bringing Context To Content for Big Impact

Join us at 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM at BWCH's office in Richmond, VA for this spectacular event with Tim Asimos, CPSM, Vice President and Director of Digital Innovation at circle S studio.

Today's professional services buyers are becoming jaded by the barrage of messaging and content they’re exposed to on a daily basis. But ... creating content that truly stands out and resonates with your target audience is no easy task. 

Tim will help you understand how to bring context to your content by targeting the right audience, using the right messages and at the right time in the buyer’s journey. Through real-world examples and field-tested best practices, you'll learn how to better engage their target audiences with marketing that acts more like a magnet and less like a bullhorn.
