Cartoons Can Teach Us A Lot About Marketing

In a world of too much noise, the most difficult part of reaching customers is connecting – being brief and meaningful. This is where cartoons can teach business owners, entrepreneurs, marketers tons. Those short captions that get to the whole story – yep, that’s about as much time as you have to reach your audience today!

Join me Thurs, September 19th, for a lively chat with cartoonist Liza Donnelly about  humor, and why marketing can learn a hell of a lot from cartoons.
