AID Connect: The Perfect Pitch
October 13 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
You’ve wrapped up a major project, the professional photos look amazing and now it’s time to pitch! One of the best ways to gain notoriety and exposure is to effectively market your latest projects and have your interior design work published.
This month we will be joined by Jane Dagmi editor-in-chief of Designers Today magazine, along with Raymond Paul Schneider, Principal RPS Consulting. Together they will share valuable tips and strategies needed to create buzz about your business and pitch your projects!
