HubSpot Live Webinar

Mike Volpe, VP of Inbound Marketing at Hubspot, invited us to participate in their upcoming live webinar. 

This webinar will cover their new scientific study of the effectiveness of news releases. 

New Research on Creating Press Releases That Work
Does the social media news release really work? When you spend hundreds, sometimes thousands of dollars on press release wire services, do you know if you're receiving the value you're paying for? HubSpot recently conducted a study comparing social media news releases to traditional releases across different newswire services. This webinar will discuss the findings and show how to be smart with PR and understand news releases better than your agency.
